More than 50% of security operations centers (SOCs) receive 10,000+ alerts per day, according to a recent study published earlier this year. When faced with such high alert volumes, blue teams must prioritize critical alerts over the noise created by false positives.
It’s here that an effective collaboration between Solarnet Communications Ltd, led by its CEO & Founder, Michael Smith, and a large UK-based financial services enterprise [name withheld to maintain confidentiality], has made all the difference. Smith emphasizes, “You want your analysts working on critical alerts…It’s not about reducing your SOC… but what it can do is really help focus your teams in the right areas.”
The cornerstone of their successful partnership lies in the implementation of Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) technology. Specifically, the adoption of D3’s Smart SOAR. It has been a game-changer in transforming the enterprise’s cybersecurity posture, helping streamline its security operations.
Alert fatigue is a chronic problem in many SOCs. Smith describes the situation as a “minefield” for security professionals struggling to identify critical alerts. This is where D3’s Smart SOAR shines:
Smart SOAR can do more than just filter out false positives; it fundamentally transforms your organization’s approach to security threats with:
The benefits of Smart SOAR extend beyond security incident response:
A crucial advantage of Smart SOAR, as emphasized by Smith, is its vendor-agnostic nature. Smith appreciates the fact that Smart SOAR is “agnostic to SIEM and agnostic to security tools and vendors as a whole.” This flexibility allows for more advanced use cases without the need for significant capital investment.
Sampana highlights Smart SOAR’s flexibility and customer-centric approach. He says that D3 Security offers what “other big brands” don’t – the freedom to change things according to your needs. As Sampana puts it, “Whatever you want, whatever you need, they help you with it.”
