If your reading this your organizations may have already been breached or is currently under attack. We are living in the 21st century, a time of self-driving and electric cars. However, there is a negative side to everything. The main downturn to the ever-improving world of technology is the fact that cyber attacks have become something we consider commonplace.


Cybercriminals have become masters at launching sophisticated and harder-to-detect phishing attacks. Unfortunately, as hackers have gotten more advanced, our technology to fend them off has not. This ultimately puts SOC teams in a very stressful situation as they attempt to fight virtual battles without the resources they need to win.


The Challenges of Manual Processing

Many organizations continue to rely on silo-based tools to collect data, ultimately creating an insurmountable quantity of alerts that must be normalized, analyzed, and prioritized. Relying on manual processes to manage the piles of data is the main reason why your team is failing to address the critical issues in a timely manner. The time and energy required to manually go through that pile of data and filter out all the false positives also leave your team with less time to deal with the real issues at hand.


It takes a lot of time to respond to an attack when you are relying on manual processes. Hackers know this and exploit it. The longer it takes to respond to the attack the more data the hacker can steal and the more computers they can infect. This ultimately leaves your organization at the mercy of attackers.


The Solution is Automated Security Operations

Organizations are challenged with the constant overload of data. To make matters worse, the growing number of cyberattacks has outpaced the availability of qualified security professionals. Despite attempts by colleges to provide more cybersecurity programs, the projected number of graduates is not expected to narrow the margin between cyber hackers and cyber defenders.


However, security automation is becoming the most logical option concerning threat detection. Increasing the level of automation with tools that can automate simple, mindless yet time-consuming tasks is becoming a much higher priority as we look to the future.


A fully automated system can streamline the workflow of dozens of team members. It can collect all alerts and initiate the required responses within minutes. By reducing the time it takes to detect the issue, you are in turn also reducing the overall workload of your SOC.
