Efficient incident response with SOAR

Security Operations Center (SOC) in enterprises handles a massive number of alerts daily, manual responses to these alerts are time-consuming and make it difficult for analysts to focus on high-priority tasks. The SOC teams necessitate a solution that can ease the team’s workload and increase operational efficiency, reduce costly repetition, and increase productivity.

Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) platforms collect inputs like alerts from the SIEM system and other security technologies, then perform incident analysis and triage through a combination of human and machine power.

With the help of SOAR tools, an organization can define incident analysis and response processes in digital workflows. Their network and security analysts can gather information about threats from various unrelated sources and use machine learning to automate responses to low-level threats.

Orchestration and automation in SOAR

SOAR enables organizations to collect data about security threats and respond to security events without human assistance. It collects required data through data pipelines and network security and management tool suites, such as SIEMS, firewalls, and threat intelligence APIs. SOAR platforms then perform coordination of security actions to support processes or workflow across multiple tool suites for incident management

SOAR platforms offer better alert management through workflow and collaboration, ticket and case management, orchestration and automation, and threat intelligence management.

The workflow-and-collaboration engine initially requires documentation of workflows or processes but once configured it helps security teams apply detailed workflows consistently. These workflows are then organized and standardized so that all the required professionals, including SOC analysts, IT analysts, and quality assurance staff, are given their part at the appropriate time with the appropriate context.

Ticket and case management helps the SOAR platform identify its ability to address incident case management and provides security teams with the SIRP functionality to track cases, document processes, manage knowledge, and report compliance issues. The case-management system helps other engines by making information or processes available and benefits different sections to enlarge case-relevant information.

Orchestration and automation bring greater efficiency and value to security teams and other users. SOAR platforms connect to other technologies, such as SIEMS or firewalls, to orchestrate. Once connected, it automates security tasks in the various tools within a secure network or adds a layer of abstraction where the security professional can interact with SOAR for better incident response.

Threat-intelligence management helps leverage machine-readable threat-intelligence feeds for aggregation, deduplication, and distribution. SOAR’s connectivity again is a force multiplier, given its connection with other security tools, threat intelligence can be rapidly pushed downstream to a SIEM or firewall.

Benefits of SOAR

SOAR platform offers a number of benefits and can enhance the incident response capabilities of organizations of all sizes. SOAR tools can automatically execute repetitive tasks and improve incident response with seamless tool integration and data reporting. The main benefits of SOAR include:

  • Reduced Manual Operations

It enables SOC teams to perform faster through automated solutions for repetitive tasks, which allows analysts to focus on higher-value work. SOAR tools enable teams of all sizes to handle security processes and incident response in a timely manner.

  • Speed up Incident Response

On average breach goes undetected for 228 days in organizations, which provides threat actors with enough time to harm critical data. Timely remediation of these threats is crucial for the safety of organizations.  SOAR provides security automation and incident response playbooks to build workflows with little human intervention. SOAR enables SOC teams to timely to suspend user accounts, quarantine infected endpoints, and block specific IP addresses.

  • Mitigate Alert Fatigue

SOAR tools also help reduce alert fatigue as SOC teams encounter more than a thousand security alerts per day. With custom dashboards and AI-enhanced detection and remediation, SecOps analysts can spend more time investigating threats based on their importance, rather than scrutinizing through a sea of alerts.

  • Integrate Siloed Tools

SOAR platform integrates a variety of security tools to meet an organization’s unique needs. It offers easy integrations for Cloud Security, Email Security, IT and Infrastructure, SIEM & Log Management, Threat Intelligence, and Identity and Access Management.

  • Easier SOC Reporting

SOC teams can gain access to automatic, reliable reporting, both with easy-to-configure templates and with custom reports. SOC reporting speeds up the incident response process by enabling teams to view all relevant data related to potential breaches as they occur. With SOAR tools, analysts can schedule automatic reports or pull on-demand reports in seconds.

 Enable your SOC Team with SOAR

In today’s volatile and sophisticated environment SOC teams require practical tools to tackle the abundance of incoming threats and security alerts. Security analysts can add SOAR tools to their toolkits to decrease workloads, respond to incidents faster, and automate alert triage, investigation, and response. SOAR platform can be easily customized to fit the varied requirement of organizations like people, security procedures, and technology. Security teams can better utilize their expertise to counter advanced threats and quickly handle alerts without adding additional workload.

D3 Security launched D3 Chronos

D3 Security has introduced D3 Chronos, a simplified SOAR package for managed security services providers (MSSPs) that can reduce alert-handling times by 90% in under two weeks. D3 Chronos is designed to provide return on investment and prioritize MSSPs’ effectiveness and business outcomes, in contrast to full-scale SOAR implementations that can take months. By optimizing the customer-to-analyst ratios, D3 Chronos enables MSSPs to onboard their clients and automate triage, both of which boost profitability. 

Denis Barnett, VP of Sales at D3 Security, “In today’s competitive managed services landscape, everyone needs automation, but not every MSSP has the resources to commit to a full-scale SOAR implementation. D3 Chronos fills a critical gap in the market by making the revenue-generating potential of SOAR immediately accessible to every MSSP without compromising the power of the software.” 

MSSPs can begin saving time and money by connecting D3 Chronos to the alert sources of their clients. The pricing structure of D3 Chronos is flexible, and it includes a pay-monthly option for smaller businesses that fits the revenue cycle of MSSPs while assisting them in reducing capital expenditures. 

D3 Security’s Event Pipeline, a SOAR technology that works globally to normalize, deduplicate, and triage incoming events, filtering out 90-98% of events and removing false positives before they reach a human analyst, recently made a breakthrough that allowed the development of D3 Chronos. 

D3 Chronos is made for busy MSSPs who want to automate their client growth and increase profits. According to D3 Security, automating triage alone can result in annual savings of more than $1 million for an MSSP processing 400 events per day. 

D3 Chronos also automates tracking of client SLAs and billable hours in addition to the triage and enrichment pipeline. When a situation necessitates a second level of investigation, D3 Chronos compiles the findings into a report for the client, saving MSSP analysts a tremendous amount of time. Growing D3 Chronos MSSPs are supported as they develop with new SOAR options that are suited to their requirements.
