Gartner defines SOAR solutions as "technologies that enable organizations to collect security threats data and alerts from different sources, where incident analysis and triage can be performed leveraging a combination of human and machine power to help define, prioritize and drive standardized incident response activities according to a standard workflow."
Cetark’s SOAR can manage the entire incident response workflow with the concept of Playbooks and Runbooks through a collection of manual and automated actions. To facilitate organization and incident response process collaboration, Cetark’s SOAR can focus team efforts in the most delicate phases of the incident response process with native automation and orchestration capabilities. This ensures efficient and effective synergy during each phase of the incident response when an incident occurs, reducing overall dwell time and potential damage that could be caused.
SOAR automation technologies with machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) provides a strong platform for mitigating evolving threats. AI and ML have emerged as new paradigms for automation in SOC. They provide faster means to identify new attacks and enables predictive analysis to draw statistical interferences to mitigate threats with fewer resources.
SOAR creates a more streamlines method of detecting and responding to cyberthreats by integrating a company’s entire toolkit of security resources with its existing people and processes.
SOAR helps in reducing operational cost by bringing automation. SOAR helps in optimizing and reducing an analyst’s workload by automating repetitive manual tasks and freeing their time to spend more on investigation and analysis of threats. SOAR brings tools together and integrates them to provide a unified platform, thereby reducing the response time and budget by many folds.
