Who are the eight best Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) security companies for 2020?
Cybersecurity doesn’t stand still. In fact, it can’t afford to stand still. Hackers continue to innovate their cyberattacks to become increasingly more evasive and damaging. Moreover, businesses need to deal with the increasing complexity of their IT infrastructures. Every day, with the influx of new devices, cloud databases, and applications, it becomes harder to manage security workflows and automate.
Therefore, enterprises have begun to turn away from traditional cybersecurity solutions and seek out SOAR security companies. After all, SOAR allows businesses to aggregate and analyze security information from a diverse set of solutions, including SIEM. Using this data, it can effectively automate security investigations, threat hunting, and remediation. Thus, SOAR can help your IT security team improve and speed its incident response—a key component to modern cybersecurity.
However, selecting the best SOAR company to work with can prove a daunting task. We’re here to help. That’s why our editors have compiled this list of the 22 SOAR security companies to consider when researching new solutions.
