8 Key Ways Security Automation and Orchestration Tools Transform Security Operations

In the attempt to stay ahead of cyberattackers, more and more companies turn to a new category of security tools: security automation and orchestration solutions.

Gartner, which named the products as Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) solutions, reported that less than 1 percent of businesses with more than five IT security professionals were using SOAR tools by the end of last year. Furthermore, the firm predicts that by 2020, 15 percent of those organizations will be using the tools.

Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) found somewhat higher numbers of enterprises using SOAR tools. According to their research, “19 percent of enterprise organizations have adopted security operations automation and orchestration technologies extensively, 39 percent have done so on a limited basis, and 26 percent are currently engaged in a project to automate/orchestrate security operations.”

DFLabs has been listed among the leading security automation and orchestration vendors around the globe.
