By now, the benefits of Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) systems are obvious to just about every CISO and security analyst. The benefits for Security Operations Centers (SOCs) include:
Current SOAR Solutions Only Available to the Top 1% of Enterprises
But while SOCs recognize the benefits of SOAR systems, they can also cite any of a long list of obstacles that can either limit the effectiveness of a SOAR deployment or make a SOAR deployment seem too impractical to pursue at all.
What are these obstacles? Here’s a quick list:
It’s relevant not just to the small SOC teams of two to five people. A CISO leading a 30-person security team recently told me: “I have two people working on Phishing triage full time. If I could spend 20 hours to dedicate to automation, I can save those two FTEs, but I don’t have time to dedicate 20 hours for automation.”
This CISO is hardly alone in feeling resource-constrained.
With security threats increasing in number and sophistication, every SOC I know of has people putting in long days trying to keep their organization safe. They don’t see any way they could find time to sit down and begin documenting their processes and insights so that knowledge can be applied to automating data collection, data analysis, and operational responses.
Introducing Security Automation on Demand
At LogicHub, we know how busy SOCs are, and we understand their objections to taking on new security automation projects. Many SOAR systems are expensive while also being limited in functionality. And documenting procedures can seem like a daunting task, especially if you’re not used to it.
But we’d like to offer SOCs more than our sympathy. We’d like to offer a solution.
That’s why today we’re introducing LogicHub Automation on Demand. This is a new offering that delivers fully automated SOC playbooks, combining the LogicHub Security Automation Platform along with neatly packaged services to build the integrations and implement the automation that’s most important to a SOC.
Our promise is this: We’ll deliver working integration and automated playbooks in just two weeks for a fixed price. That includes building integrations for the tools you need, even if those tools don’t have APIs.
Here is how it works.
Step 1: One of our Security Automation experts will spend an hour with one or two of your analysts to document the most critical playbook or process they need automated.
Some SOC teams believe their processes are too ad hoc to be documented, but we find that once we sit down with analysts and begin asking questions about the tools they use and how they analyze threats, all their processes can actually be documented in a straightforward manner. It’s simply a matter of spending a few hours and asking the right questions. Then, because these processes are documented, they can be automated.
Step 2: Once documented, we submit the playbook for automation to our security automation experts who have years of SOC expertise and also know the LogicHub platform inside-out.
Step 3: 14 days later, our experts build an end-to-end automated playbook and deliver it with the LogicHub platform. They will even help you deploy the playbook into your production environment, and even manage it.
Sounds incredible? It’s true. Finally a solution that is making security automation practical and affordable for even the busiest SOC.
