John Moran, DFLabs’ Senior Product Manager TV Interview with Chuck Harold at Black Hat 2018

DFLabs’ Senior Product Manager, John Moran joins Chuck Harold from Security Guy TV for an interview at Black Hat 2018 in Las Vegas. In this short interview, John Moran introduces the concept of security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) technology, and explains what will happen if companies don’t start with automation. He further gives examples of how orchestration and automation of the incident response process actually help a company defend itself against growing sophisticated cyber attacks. He points out that automation doesn’t mean replacing and firing people, on the contrary, how to make the teams within a company work more effectively.

What Happens When You Combine SOAR with Existing Security Technologies

Security teams and Security Operations Centers across the industry face many similar challenges, some of which include increased workload, budget constraints, competition for skilled analysts and repeating manual processes.

Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) are facing many of these challenges, multiplied by the scale at which they operate.  Enterprises across the globe are increasingly turning to Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) solutions to address these growing challenges.

It now seems clear that SOAR is not just a feature. It is actually becoming a critical component of an advanced security program.  Our existing manual processes simply do not scale to the level they must.

Enterprises cannot continue to respond to today’s growing security threats effectively without some level of automation and orchestration.  Gartner predicts that the adoption of SOAR solutions will increase enormously over the next several years.

Four Reasons Why Companies Fail At Incident Response

DFLabs’s CEO Dario Forte pinpoints the main reasons why many companies today still can’t seem to create the suitable plan when it comes to incident response.

Today, a vast number of companies throughout many different industries are still exposed to continuous security breaches of various kinds. This year only, companies such as Best Buy, Delta, Orbitz, Panera, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Sears, have all been victims to some type of cyber-security threat.

Security threats have become very sophisticated with the rise of new technologies and companies need to fight them back. However, these are not always tested for security flaws and create difficult gaps for companies in their battle for protection of their assets.
