Security Orchestration, Automation & Response

SOAR Technology

Cyber-attacks are continually increasing in number and sophistication than ever before. Organizations’ capacity to respond to these catastrophes, on the other hand, is inadequate and inefficient. Effective security solutions are inevitable in this rising scenario of cybersecurity threats. SOAR is a combination of disparate technologies that allow enterprises to collect data and security warnings from various sources.

Businesses may automate a number of machine-driven operations by using SOAR technologies to design response protocols and threat analyses in a digital workflow structure.

SOAR integrates security orchestration and automation, threat intelligence, and incident response, which were formerly separate technical domains. The functional components of SOAR include security orchestration, automation, response, dashboard and reporting. These components perform various activities and functions within a SOC.

Automation

Manually detecting and responding to cyber-incidents is a time-consuming and tedious job. There are hundreds of repeated operations that need to be automated throughout the incident response phase.

Automation is machine-driven execution of actions on IT systems and security tools as a part of incident response. These tasks were previously done by humans. A CSIRT team can describe standardized automation stages, decision-making workflow, enforcement actions, status checks, and auditing capabilities using the automation component of SOAR systems.

Both reactive and proactive security measures are supported by automation. The automation playbook may respond to incidents, track incident response data, and handle cases in the reactive mode. In the proactive mode, automation playbook may do threat-hunting and security operations, assisting analysts in identifying threats and weaknesses before they materialize.

Response

It helps analysts to manage security incidents, collaborate and share data for incident resolution.

Alert Triage and Processing: The SOAR gathers data from various security systems, such as SIEM. The data is then analyzed by security specialists to determine whether or not a danger exists. If a threat is found, security teams extend their investigation parameter across other potential vulnerabilities to prevent further attack. Finally, the incident is resolved through the remediation procedure.

Case Management Modules: This feature facilitates collaboration, communication and task management with the SOC and possibly beyond.

Threat Intelligence Management: SOAR tools use this characteristic to gather all relevant information about a threat. Afterwards, the security teams analyse the data and transform it into intelligence in order to take action.

Dashboard and Reporting

SOAR’s dashboard and reporting features create reports for security specialists who are part of the SOAR. The goal is to increase security intelligence by learning from prior reports and improving further. SOC manager reports, analyst-level reporting, and CISO-level reports are all included in the dashboard and reports.

The SOAR solution is beneficial to all types of businesses, especially those with fewer security professionals and a dwindling IT security budget. Analysts within a SOC can benefit from SOAR technology to save time, money, and resources.
