What Made D3 and its Next-Gen SOAR Platform the Winner?
In a recent press release announcing the award, Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Swetha R K said: “Through a combination of agility, access to security talent, and superior technology, D3 Security’s next-generation platform allows clients to grow their security operations at scale. D3 Security’s highly differentiated features, such as ATTACKBOT, and the ability to go beyond SOAR, make it the preferred partner to resellers and service providers.”
Full-Lifecycle Security Operations
D3’s SOAR platform consolidates security tools and applications into a single interface to provide security teams with higher visibility into their entire network and its associated endpoints. The platform presents a structured view of an enterprise’s security operations that provides immediate insights to security professionals of all tiers and different roles.
D3 goes beyond SOAR to handle the entire incident response lifecycle, with cross-departmental incident response workflows, forensics case investigation, and reporting capabilities. In addition, D3’s built-in analytical system provides a dashboard to track important metrics. By analyzing the types of attacks against the client’s environment, the reporting platform highlights security operations or tooling gaps present in an enterprise’s security posture. This capability is particularly relevant for managed security service providers (MSSPs) because it allows them to use the diagnosis to recommend additional tools and/or services.
Codeless Playbooks and TTP Dashboards
Significantly, D3 is one of the few cybersecurity vendors with a codeless platform that specializes in enabling users to build complex integrations and automation-powered playbooks without having to write or maintain any Python scripts. Codeless playbooks greatly reduce the resources and expertise required to implement and maintain the platform, which is a major concern for SOAR buyers. Furthermore, D3’s MITRE ATT&CK TTP dashboard includes intuitive visualization to map events to the framework. Enabled by the ATTACKBOT automation and reporting feature, the dashboard helps analysts manage events with a contextual kill chain-oriented view. It allows them to check the status of various types of events, threat indicators, and artifacts as well as drill down to additional commands.
