Security Automation is no longer the way of the future, but rather an integral necessity for the success of your business. In today’s ever-growing virtual landscape, security automation has become a top concern for businesses. As infrastructure and networks grow in size and complexity, it has become increasingly difficult to manually manage security and compliance. In addition, breaches are occurring at an alarmingly fast rate as new attack vectors such IoT and more sophisticated attackers are coming into play. Cyber security breaches are occurring every thirty seconds and businesses are faced with hundreds of thousands, and in some cases, millions of alerts per month. More importantly, on average, cyber security incidents are costing businesses millions of dollars. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The deployment of security automation technology can reduce the average cost of a breach by over 90%.
Security automation, as the name implies, involves the machine automated monitoring, detecting, troubleshooting and eradicating of cyberthreats. Most of us are familiar with basic forms of security automation such as our friendly neighborhood antivirus installed on our laptops. However, this tool has quickly become very intuitive and sophisticated, and thus, provides faster and more accurate threat detection, triaging and evaluation of remediation steps. Security automation integrates machine-operated tasks that simplify essential processes for risk and security analysis. This allows security and risk teams to use their skills in areas that provide more value to the business such as remaining focused on big-ticket security items and allows your business to get more out of its security stack.
If you are looking to take the next step in automation, security orchestration may be exactly what you need to round out your security ecosystem. Security orchestration takes security automation to another level by ensuring that all your security and threat detection tools are connected and able to work together by feeding into one another, sharing information and responding to threats across even the most complex environments. This will lead to great visibility of your security environment from a single, centralized hub.
As businesses are transforming themselves into a virtual version of themselves at a rapid pace, cyberthreats are increasing at an even faster rate. Your business may have not made this jump because it is still heavily relying on legacy systems which do no support automation. Thus, many SOCs lack automated tools to integrate into their security stack. But we can help you work through this because tools such as security automation are no longer a luxury that your businesses can ignore. It has become essential to the success of your business.
