SOCs face major incident response challenges

Attacks and alerts are rising

Attacks and alerts are rising

Cyberattacks are increasing and growing increasingly complex and targeted, requiring more time and attention from security analysts.

At the same time, the volume of security alerts and false positives is growing. As a result, incident response (IR) teams are overworked and stretched too thin, leaving organizations at risk.

Security environments are complex

Security environments are complex

Security analysts need to be empowered to succeed. Too often, they have to rely on manual, outdated and ad hoc incident response processes, and manage dozens of disparate tools across multiple vendors.

As a result, security analysts struggle to work quickly and efficiently.

Analysts are bogged down by other tasks

Analysts are bogged down by other tasks

When an incident occurs, analysts need to act fast and decisively. But too often, analyst time is consumed by reporting and metrics. 

Similarly, navigating privacy notification requirements (and their tight deadlines) is complex and time-consuming.

Intelligent orchestration can free your business to thrive

Intelligent orchestration empowers security teams to battle cyberattacks with greater speed and agility. By seamlessly combining human and machine-based intelligence, intelligent orchestration extends the response through integrations with an ecosystem of security partners,  guiding analysts through an expert-level response process.

With intelligent orchestration, you can deliver real-time visibility across your security operations center (SOC) tools, rapid time to value, and guided response. And you can help your team to:

  • Outsmart cyber threats with the unique combination of human and artificial intelligence
  • Outpace cyber threats through orchestration and automation across SOC tools
  • Outmaneuver cyber attackers with agile and adaptive Dynamic Playbooks

Transform your SOC with intelligent orchestration

Orchestration and automation

Orchestration and automation streamline repetitive and time-consuming tasks, freeing SOC staff to focus on more strategic priorities.

  • Build robust, dynamic incident response plans that adapt in real time.
  • Integrate your SIEM, security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform, ticketing system and other security solutions.
  • Automate workflows to empower analysts and enable faster response
Human and artificial intelligence

Human and artificial intelligence (AI) helps to better investigate threats, guide response processes and eliminate false positives.

  • Capture and codify expertise and intelligence from your top security staff and experts across the organization.
  • Use advanced threat intelligence and AI to uncover insights and trends.
  • Collaborate with security experts to augment your team.
Case management

Case management helps to continuously measure, assess and refine IR processes and procedures. 

  • Establish a system of record for measuring and analyzing IR processes and performance.
  • Assess, refine and customize IR plans.
  • Understand your team’s workload and skillsets, and augment with security services.
