When Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) and Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) first arrived a decade or so ago, they were heralded as breakthrough advances.

TIP and SOAR may yet live up to that promise. I had an evocative discussion about this at RSA Conference 2023 with Willy Leichter, vice president of marketing, and Neal Dennis, threat intelligence specialist, at Cyware, which supplies a cyber fusion solution built around advanced TIP and SOAR services. For a full drill down, please give the accompanying podcast a listen.

TIP and SOAR may have been slightly ahead of the curve; today, they argued, TIP and SOAR align perfectly with the challenge of defending hybrid cloud and multi-cloud networks.

Leichter observes that the first-generation TIP and SOAR products fulfilled narrowly defined roles. Versions today can ingest and analyze threat feeds much more comprehensively, and, most importantly, share it strategically, he says.

Leichter stressed the importance of sharing intel to form a collective defense: “If the first healthcare company that’s targeted by a new ransomware attack alerts everyone else, we’re all going to be much safer,” he says.

He cited Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs), which facilitate the sharing and dissemination of threat intel among stakeholders in different industry sectors, as a good model.

Dennis acknowledged that “cloud-native” security services provided by Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud, are part of the equation, as well. However, even though these services are steadily improving, they only go so far, he cautions.

The cybersecurity landscape is rapidly evolving. I’ll keep watch and keep reporting.
