Automation is part of our everyday lives. Yet where security is concerned, organizations are holding back. Some 59 percent of organizations said they use low levels or no automation of key security and incident response (IR) tasks, according to a recent SANS survey.
There are a number of obstacles preventing organizations from wider-scale adoption for their security operation centers (SOCs), including cost and a lack of trust in automated, managed processes.
Despite these concerns, automation can make a difference. Automation can free analysts from performing routine tasks, enabling them to focus on events that require more attention. Automation can also improve mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) to threats and alert users to areas where they need to improve.
To automate their SOC, organizations need the right tools to help them respond faster to threats and lower the risk of human error. That means embracing a security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) solution that integrates with security information and event management (SIEM) to help teams respond faster to threats through a unified interface.
