Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR)
Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) is a set of security software solutions that helps security teams improve efficiency by better managing threats and vulnerabilities, automating repetitive tasks, and effectively responding to security incidents. SOAR is becoming a popular way to mitigate the challenges security teams face—defending against and responding to increasingly complex threats with a small staff.
What are orchestration and automation?
Orchestration refers to integrating disparate security software systems that a security team might already use. By integrating these systems, the team can build and automate custom workflows for detecting threats faster and reducing the time required to remediate security incidents.
Automation refers to automating repetitive, tedious, time-consuming tasks. Unlike orchestration, which deals with workflows, automation focuses on processes. For example, a security team might automate deleting phishing emails from its organization’s employee email inboxes. This saves valuable time for IT security analysts who are already stretched thin.
