SOAR Like An Eagle: The Key to Fast and Full-Lifecycle Incident Response

By Alex MacLachlan June 28, 2018 incident-response, security-orchestration-automation-response

Senior Principal Analyst and ESG Fellow, Jon Oltsik, recently reported on security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platforms in two articles for CSO Magazine. You can read them here and here.

Notably, Jon found that platforms like D3 Security are driving SOAR’s evolution, by combining automation with extensive decision support and case management capabilities. Basically, he saw most SOAR platforms as filling the skills gap with too-rigid automation, rather than actually helping organizations to automate and orchestrate the right processes. Needless to say, it’s an interesting take and one that we wholeheartedly agree with.

Now you can join D3 Director of Cyber Security, Stan Engelbrecht, and ESG Fellow, Jon Oltsik, for an exclusive webinar that looks at real-world incident response challenges and how security orchestration, automation and response tools can help coordinate people, process and technology in the face of cyberattacks.

In particular, we’ll explore Jon’s findings on the evolution of SOAR, and provide a first-hand look at some of the features he thinks are driving the evolution, including:

  • Out-of-the-box security product integrations
  • Visual playbooks that trigger machine-specific API calls
  • Risk-based security actions that balance rules with intelligence
  • Guided case management for incident investigations
  • Extensive report, workflow and automation libraries

Join us on July 19th to learn how to this ongoing evolution can help you SOAR like an eagle, and achieve fast and full-lifecycle incident response.
