For the past ten years, Faiz and I have run a cybersecurity company, and during that time, we have seen an inconceivable change within the field. The exploding variety and developing complexity of attacks has driven organizations to spend billions of dollars every year on cybersecurity in an attempt to keep pace with risk levels. As we consulted with different organizations, we found that in spite of the money being spent, a void in the information security landscape remained—which is the reason why we founded SIRP.
Organizations have now reached a point where handling large volume of data manually is not possible. Even though there are a number of amazing security solutions and technologies available that are very proficient at identifying security attacks, but even with these tools, the majority of industry experts and organizations alike have expressed concerns about the shortage. Security teams in general are struggling to fight back and respond to the huge volume of security alerts generated from a number of security technologies on a daily basis.
To comprehend how to solve this problem, we have to understand what causes it in the first place. The myriad of detection and prevention solutions let security analysts know that a possible attack is occurring. Put simply, “There’s a problem here. Somebody please go fix it.” If you had only five or ten, potential threats coming to your security team each day that would not be an issue but today hundreds or thousands of threat alerts with varying degrees of complexity occur on a daily basis. To neutralize that volume and innovation in cybersecurity landscape, organizations are utilizing numerous diverse security tools.
Between the growing number of threats and the number of tools needed to detect them, it has become nearly impossible for security teams to manually address each alert thoroughly. In addition, when incidents go unresolved, inevitably, some threats slip through the cracks. In other words, the current process is simply unsustainable. What is needed now to complement threat detection solutions is automated incident response platforms that:
These are just some of the that SIRP’s Security Orchestration, Automation and Response Platform provides to the organizations. Throughout the process, we examine how functions like security orchestration and automation can be applied in your environment. We also provide suggestions for getting the most out of your cybersecurity framework, review industry trends and appropriate news, and provide insight into how organizations can tackle difficult challenges. I could not be more excited to present you my vision on SIRP and more in the months to come.
