IBM Security Virtual Summit 2020 ASEAN

Security everywhere: Managing new cyber risks. Watch the replay of our virtual security summit to hear from security leaders and organizations who will talk about best practices in dealing with the latest cybersecurity challenges in the new normal of doing business.

Overview

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.

Benefits

Accelerate incident response

Your analysts face an onslaught of alerts, with an often confusing array of tools at their disposal. Automation helps enrich incidents with threat intelligence so they can quickly resolve damaging phishing attacks, malware infections in multiple endpoints, or focus attention on more critical tasks.

Manage security operations

Your SOC analysts may spend a lot of time in reaction mode. Managed detection and response experts can help them undertake more proactive vulnerability management and endpoint diagnostics, using tools like Ansible to scale and resolve issues when they occur.

Maximize your security tools with orchestration

A SOAR platform integrates your security tools, helping you centralize, standardize and scale processes. It automatically correlates security alerts flagged by your SIEM against threat intelligence feeds for malicious indicators, or integrates malware analysis into incidents after detonating in a sandbox.

SOAR platforms

Integrated security platform with SOAR

Integrate and orchestrate existing security tools using open standards to search for threat indicators across your hybrid, multicloud environment. Connect enterprise-wide workflows to make more informed decisions, while leaving data where it resides.

SOAR platform

Minimize the duration and impact of a cyber attack with an open platform that orchestrates and automates your organization’s response. Dynamic, adaptive playbooks guide your team to resolve incidents with agility and intelligence.

Related SOAR solutions

Accelerate incident response

Engage with trusted cybersecurity partners and threat intelligence to improve your incident response readiness. With a team of experts on standby, you’ll be able to reduce the time it takes to respond to an incident, minimize the impact and recover faster.

Gain threat intelligence

Bolster your incident response teams with insights from an industry-leading cyber threat intelligence team to stop threats in your environment with accurate, up-to-the-minute cyber threat data. Combining expertise with threat intelligence helps your team outsmart, outpace and outmaneuver advanced cyber threats.

Aggregate security activity and event management

Incorporate advanced analytics such as user behavior analytics (UBA), network flow insights, AI and incident forensics. With a single dashboard, security analysts can gain insights from this aggregated data to prioritize mitigation efforts based on risk profiles and increase efficiency.

Responding to security issues faster

One of the leading UK broadband providers needed to be more responsive to cyber threats as its business expanded. IBM helped integrate IBM Security™ SOAR into its existing security infrastructure, establishing a centralized hub that improves visibility into issues and speeds incident response.
