How does one choose from the unlimited reservoir of security solutions, tools, and technologies available to security teams? For security operations, nothing can beat the combination of a SOAR and SIEM platform.
SGBox offers a holistic approach to SIEM solutions with the ability to adapt to organizational requirements. Analysis of logs, vulnerability scans, and system monitoring are some of the added benefits that make SGBox the perfect choice for integration with SIRP.
A SOAR platform extends the efficiency, robustness, and response that SIEM alone cannot provide. SIRP SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation and Response) solution integrates with SGBox to manage and enhance incidence response, alert correlation, and orchestrate and automate the repetitive and mundane tasks that delay security operations.
SOAR with SIEM together provide a comprehensive solution that creates an efficient, affordable, and successful plan for organizations; SIRP maximizes security analysts' efficiency while minimizing the response time, and this is made possible after alerts are taken into the SOAR platform through SGBox via the ingestion module.
A SIEM solution ingests large amounts of security data from multiple sources. The alerts are plenty, including false positives, and take up most of the time of a SOC analyst. The phrase “too much of a good thing” also applies here as alert fatigue takes off the security analysts. The number of security alerts being generated is insurmountable, true positive alerts get mixed with false positives, detection and response time increases, resources and tools are exhausted, and many alerts go unnoticed.
Employing SIRP’s SOAR platform enables security teams to process alerts from SGBox SIEM at a faster pace which enables them to reduce response time from hours to a few minutes. Various workflows and playbooks are available in the SIRP platform for investigating and responding to different alerts and events generated by SGBox. Not only does this considerably reduce alert fatigue and workload, but it also decreases time to respond and reduces the overall risk to the organization.
The security alerts triggered by SGBox are ingested into SIRP can be processed manually, semi-automatically, or fully automatically by security teams. Workflows and playbooks are configured to process the alerts based on their type. Enrichment playbooks enrich the alerts by fusing in the information from different sources.
One of the most important use cases for SOC includes ransomware attack response. When a ransomware alert is ingested from the SGBox to SIRP, a case is automatically opened and assigned to an analyst for investigation. The affected host and user information are gathered and analyzed for any past related events. Once initial triage is completed, SIRP can then initiate the mitigation and containment actions to determine the extent of the attack, assess its aftermath, and initiate the response and remediation playbook.
Below is an example of a Playbook that can be executed from SIRP.
Once SIRP gets alerts from SGBOX via its ingestion module, assuming it is a ransomware alert containing workstation, IP address, and user information in the payload, the above playbook gets executed automatically with the following actions:
