How Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) Neutralizes the Challenges Facing Your Company’s SOC
Security Operations Centers (SOCs) play an increasingly vital role in the battle to safeguard businesses against the scourge of cyberthreats, bringing together human expertise and technological innovation to help organizations more effectively prevent, detect, analyze and respond to digital attacks. According to a recent Ponemon Institute survey, 67 percent of IT and IT security practitioners consider their company’s SOC essential or very important to their overall cybersecurity strategy. But SOCs grapple with a wide range of issues and obstacles, including a lack of visibility into network traffic, limited interoperability with the organization’s security intelligence tools and ongoing struggles to identify and retain skilled personnel.
