What is Security Orchestration?
Security orchestration is the method of aligning disparate security tools and technologies by integrating multiple systems and platforms to enable streamlined security processes, empowering security automation for accelerated incident response.
It helps to translate complex incident response processes and tasks into consistent, repeatable, measurable, and effective workflows. Combined with human collaboration, security orchestration brings together people, processes, and technologies to increase the overall efficiency of security operations teams.
Streamline Incident Response Processes
With the increasing complexity of cyber attacks, investigations, and incident response can be difficult to manage. Security orchestration provides security teams with a guided approach to responding to security alerts with a defined step by step process. These streamlined processes and workflows ensure organizations adhere to the latest regulations, such as data breach notification and reporting.
Typically, analysts would consume valuable time manually pulling and filtering data from a number of separate tools and resources. With all tools working together as one, they can focus their efforts on specific investigation tasks and the responses needed, as well as proactively hunting for threats.
Orchestration helps to improve security operations productivity and performance, as well as increase the ROI on existing security tools and technologies already being deployed.
