Who are the top SOAR Vendors to Watch in 2020?
As we enter the new decade, we begin to see a disruption of the SIEM marketplace. Enterprises increasingly look to automate and optimize their cybersecurity workflow processes. Additionally, they seek to unify the cybersecurity data inputs generated by disparate solutions like SIEM. With the dissolution of the traditional digital perimeter, business IT security teams look to speed their incident response.
Therefore, early adopter enterprises now turn to SOAR solutions. These tools set forth data orchestration through solution integration to facilitate security automation in a single interface. Also, SOAR provides dashboards, reporting and threat intelligence features as well as machine learning to bolster incident management.
SOAR platforms offer a look into the future of organizational cybersecurity. Thus, Solutions Review is proud to present our Five SOAR Vendors to Watch in 2020. Here they are:
