The editors of Solutions Review work to research SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response), and cybersecurity in general, on a constant basis. We compile technology research papers and reports, product updates, and capability trends. Then, we compile it into best practices articles posted every week (and multiple times a week at that).
Obviously, we offer a lot of SOAR articles and best practices. Sorting through all of them could feel daunting to the IT decision-maker. Additionally, many enterprise-level decision makers don’t fully understand SOAR, as it remains a emerging market at time of writing. For the record, 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.
To help you understand this distinct cybersecurity market, we compiled some of our best SOAR articles and best practices for your perusal. Check it out here!
