A SOAR platform represents an evolution in security operations driven by the vast amounts of data that must be processed.
Even for the most skilled team, keeping up with the threat landscape, increasingly complex IT environments, changing regulatory compliance mandates, and mounting security alerts is not easy to achieve, let alone do quickly. Historically, meeting these objectives has necessitated coordination and manual labor across these various teams.
Now, with the right solutions in place, you are able to codify and automate these objectives, yielding a faster time to completion via orchestration. Working off a single platform is critical to successful coordination of detection and response initiatives, as it keeps knowledge sharing across these teams fluid and instantaneous. Security orchestration and automation integrates different technologies and allows you to conduct defensive actions: it increases your effectiveness in stopping, containing, and preventing attacks.
The great thing about SOAR is that, if deployed correctly, it gives your organization the platform required to implement an intelligence-driven security strategy. It is a centralized platform that enables the refinement of relevant data from cases, response engagements, threat investigations, shared communities, and external vendors into intelligence suitable for decision-making by any analyst, and also leverage that newly created intelligence to inform decisions across the security team.
