What is SOAR?

Security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) is graduating to the mainstream.  Organizations burdened by the growing volume of alerts, multiple tools and staff shortages are adopting a single platform to improve their security operations centers.

SOAR tools can help your organization accelerate incident response with automation, process standardization, and integration with your existing security tools. Organizations mature enough for SOAR are able to speed up threat investigations by collecting data across operations without relying on human efforts, increasing productivity and better aligning case and ticket management workflows.

Manage security operations

Across your organization, proactive vulnerability management and endpoint diagnostics may take a backseat to reactive incident response. Tools like Ansible can help analysts scale and resolve issues wherever they occur.

Incident response and enrichment

A SOAR platform integrates your security tools to accelerate and enrich your investigations. It automatically  correlates security alerts flagged by SIEM, against threat intelligence feeds for malicious indicators or integrates malware findings into incidents after detonating in a sandbox.
