Torq Delivers on the Promise of Parallel Execution
Torq debuted Parallel Execution this week. Parallel Execution is a significant evolution for no-code security automation that enables end-users to instantly create multiple branches within an automatic workflow and handle each concurrently before seamlessly merging back into a single flow. Parallel Execution allows users to drop in a simple step to branch workflows “horizontally,” execute each branch in parallel, then instantly merge the output back into a single workflow. This functionality can exponentially speed up tasks like threat intelligence enrichment, enabling users to check multiple sources simultaneously. Instead of waiting for one check before moving to the next, each source is checked simultaneously, reducing total execution time from the cumulative total down to whichever the ‘slowest’ source is.
