Organizations face growing security operations challenges

Threat volume

Sixty-seven percent of security practitioners recently surveyed by Ponemon believe the volume and severity of cyberattacks is increasing.¹

Skill shortages

Seventy-seven percent of organizations have difficulty hiring and retaining IT security professionals skilled in incident response (IR), malware analysis, forensics and threat hunting.²


Security incidents can involve many different internal systems, security tools and endpoints, as well as cloud services. This complexity can reduce the efficiency of the incident response team.

Global regulations on breach reporting

Hundreds of different global regulations require organizations to report data privacy breaches quickly — as little as 72 hours for GDPR. Failure to comply accurately can result in costly fines.

How can your team respond faster to a security incident?

IBM Security Resilient® can guide your team to respond with confidence through the use of dynamic playbooks, automation of repetitive tasks, and orchestration of people, process, and technology.

How a SOAR incident response platform empowers your team

Develop and maintain IR playbooks

The Resilient platform helps security teams create and manage playbooks that codify industry best practices and internal procedures. These dynamic playbooks allow teams to work through all aspects of the incident, generating a trackable, auditable record.

Automate security incident investigations

Reduce the manual steps in incident response with  orchestration and automation, which can be invoked at any step in the IR process. Analysts benefit significantly from the automation of repeatable, predictable tasks.

Eliminate technology silos

Managing security incidents across different tools and applications is tough. With more than 160 published applications in the IBM AppExchange, including Red Hat’s Ansible, the Resilient platform supports a wide range of security and IT operations use cases.

Help address compliance and privacy notification regulations

Resilient’s global knowledge base of more than 180 privacy reporting regulations helps privacy, legal and security teams collaborate on data breach investigations, reducing the time to identify and respond to regulatory requirements.

Provide a single view of security incidents and KPIs

Gain visibility into all aspects of the security incident lifecycle and inform business decisions with strategic metrics. Configurable reports and dashboards provide a view of organizational cyber resilience, as well as key performance indicators around response.
