Security Automation Is More Than Automation
It’s no secret that security operations is under fire. In most enterprises, the only thing standing between a normal day and a financially devastating data breach is the security analyst. Yet, despite decades of investment in cyber security protection, detection, and intelligence tools, the analyst lacks a centralized software platform to operationalize all of this data in time to effectively prevent breaches from occurring. Drowning in a sea of alerts, and with the business on the line, SOC analysts are desperately seeking solutions. Automation is being hailed as the answer. But what does "security automation" really mean?

Why it's so difficult for SOC teams to trust automation
In the complex corporate security environment, automation is increasingly the "go-to" answer for organizations lost in a sea of alerts, logs and data. For many, it's the only way to address their most critical processes and it's what keeps them moving from task to task in a fluid manner. But there is a danger in putting too much faith into automation and orchestration alone.
SOCs Require More Than a Band-Aid Approach
The “health” of security operations centers (SOC) is declining: it is becoming harder and harder for security teams to successfully prevent and remediate breaches. Everyone in the industry intuitively understands that breaches are unavoidable. The goal is to find and terminate the attacker’s actions as fast as possible, shortening the time from breach to mitigation of the threat.
