The security operations center (SOC) is constantly overwhelmed. Analysts are drowning in security alerts, with far too many threats to investigate and resolve. Security operations work is rife with these types of monotonous, routine and repetitive tasks — especially at the tier-1 analyst level.
To make matters worse, there’s a significant shortage of cybersecurity professionals, making it that much harder to respond to the thousands of alerts that come in daily.
Combined, all of these factors result in painfully slow threat detection and response — not great for the business, or for keeping users and assets safe.
The good news? Your security team can go from overwhelmed to in control with Splunk SOAR. You can eliminate analyst grunt work, streamline your security operations, and detect, triage and respond to alerts faster than ever.
Security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) can tackle even the most mundane or repetitive of tasks. Any process that involves detection, investigation, containment — or even logistical items, like cross-functional communication via tickets — can be orchestrated across the many IT and security tools that you own, and automated without any human interaction.
In this e-book, we’ll walk you through five common use cases for SOAR, the steps you need to take for each use case, and how to automate these steps using a pre-built playbook from Splunk SOAR.
