DFLabs Releases New Version 4.4 of IncMan SOAR Platform with Automated Triage for Incident Response

DFLabs SOAR has released a new version of the IncMan SOAR platform that uses automated event triage which will help to significantly reduce the number of cyber security incidents generated from alerts. This capability, first of its kind, called START (Simple Triage And Rapid Treatment) Triage, is being used by a major European bank to eliminate manual first line assessment of suspected fraudulent online transactions. In addition, this new version of IncMan SOAR includes even more enhancements including several new bidirectional integrations from a variety of product categories including SIEM, network defense, endpoint protection and threat intelligence, that expand its orchestration and automation capabilities even further. 

Not every alert deserves to become and be processed as a security incident, yet that is how SOAR products currently operate. The new release of IncMan SOAR is breaking this cycle,” said Michele Zambelli, CTO of DFLabs. “By applying our automation engine, enrichment and containment capabilities to events using a triage process, we can dramatically reduce the number that are turned into incidents and placed into the queue for deeper assessment by IncMan and security analysts.

The new version 4.4 with triage of DFLabs IncMan SOAR Platform will be available immediately from DFLabs and its business partners worldwide.

DFLabs will demonstrate the new version 4.4 of IncMan SOAR with triage at Black Hat booth #IC2329 on August 8-9, 2018 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
