What is SOAR?
A security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) solutions can integrate with a variety of disparate systems to collect threat data and automate repeatable processes. They can also act as an aggregation point for different tools and platforms. By automating time-consuming tasks, such as incident triage, enrichment, and investigation, SOARs enable security teams to save valuable time and focus on more critical activities, such as threat hunting and remediation. This integrated approach not only increases the efficiency and effectiveness of security operations but also reduces response time and minimizes the risk of human error.
However, like any technology, SOARs are not without their challenges. While SOARs are designed to orchestrate a response and streamline security operations, they are not designed to detect threats or determine where a business’ greatest security risks lie. Moreover, SOARs are often difficult to implement, requiring extensive customization and integration with existing security tools and systems, a process that can be both time-consuming and require specialized expertise.
Resolution Intelligence Cloud is a data analytics platform that uses an open architecture, so it plays well with other security and ops tools. This includes easily integrating with Google Chronicle SOAR (formerly Siemplify) as well as other SOARs and information technology service management (ITSM) solutions, like ServiceNow and Jira. The objective of this centralized platform approach is to enhance communication, collaboration, and coordination among different teams and improve the overall efficiency of incident management. Resolution Intelligence Cloud also facilitates and improves incident response through the use of data-driven insights and analytics. By aggregating and analyzing security data from various sources, the platform gives organizations a comprehensive view of their security posture so they can make more informed decisions to mitigate risks and prevent future incidents.
