Security operation center (SOC) teams need security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) because it provides a simple, efficient, and effective method for response to the growing complexity and volume of cybersecurity threats. SOAR playbooks are where the rubber meets the road; where incident response SOPs are codified to leverage SOAR’s automated and orchestrated response capabilities, help eliminate human error, and increase SOC speed and efficiency. By integrating SOAR, SOC teams can triage, investigate, and mitigate threats more quickly and accurately than by traditional, manual methods. This ability is not just a luxury in the current digital age, but a necessity, given the magnitude and complexity of the cybersecurity threats organizations face. As a recent study reveals, most SOC teams face more than 10,000 security alerts each day on average.
But not all SOAR platforms are going to help you achieve the same level of security outcomes. D3 Security’s Smart SOAR is built differently from tools that we refer to as Dumb SOAR. Starting at the ingestion stage, Smart SOAR’s unique two-tiered approach to automation at the event and incident level significantly saves time and resources by filtering out unnecessary alerts. Another key differentiator is Smart SOAR’s alert normalization capabilities. As you manage more data sources and playbooks for your use cases, the value of alert normalization becomes more apparent. It enables smarter, strategic automation, making security operations more efficient and effective. Additionally, Smart SOAR’s mesh architecture enables different security tools to work together to identify and respond to threats effectively. Here’s why we believe Smart SOAR is the best playbook solution for enterprises and MSSPs.
Take control of all your playbook operations using D3 Smart SOAR’s intuitive playbook editor. This ‘command center’ gives you a one-stop shop for your playbook library, handy integrations, utility commands, and even a panel for testing your playbooks. It’s all about simplifying your incident response workflows. The editor showcases an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop interface designed for automating those critical security tasks, eliminating the need for intricate manual scripting. But don’t worry, for those who enjoy getting their hands dirty with code, we’ve got you covered. You still have the option to roll up your sleeves and dive into some Python coding if that’s your thing.
Smart SOAR is unique in its deep-dive approach to integrations. We have a dedicated team that manages our technology integrations, and this team gets hands-on with a careful study of every tool’s API with which we integrate, to gain a holistic view of each tool’s capabilities. Our integrations often ping multiple APIs in a single command, then mix and tweak the results to save you time. Sure, it’s a lot of work on our end, but it ensures that the data you get has everything you need to aid with your cyber incident response.
Smart SOAR offers hundreds of pre-built utility commands that help you automate a variety of actions, from data processing and enrichment, TTP and IOC searches, custom correlations, remedial actions, and more. You can also create custom utility commands using Python, in case you have a use case that isn’t covered in our library.
Use our built-in playbook and action testing feature to ensure smooth and safe operations before going live. Test each step, including actions and conditional logic, without interfering with production data or leaving the playbook editor. Effectively manage your playbook lifecycles using access controls, version controls with rollback capability, and reusable blocks and utilities. Run analytics on playbooks to identify and capitalize on improvement opportunities.
Tackle phishing, ransomware, crypto-jacking, and other threats that impact your team the most with Smart SOAR’s out-of-the-box playbooks and integrations. Smart SOAR comes with comprehensive playbooks for real-world security automation use cases, reducing the need for teams to build playbooks from scratch.
