Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR)

Respond fast and effectively to cyberattacks. Proactively automate and orchestrate your response to incidents and minimize impact to your IT environment.

Even the most secure environments may not be able to protect from all breaches. The ability to respond to the incidents that break through is more critical than ever. SOAR goes above and beyond Incident Response Platforms to focus more on automation & orchestration use cases, privacy, disaster recovery, and team management. SOAR Platforms allow you to proactively manage security incidents - enabling you to respond to emerging threats with shortened response times - minimizing impact on your IT environment.

In their 2019 Market Guide, Gartner defines SOAR as “technologies that enable organizations to take inputs from a variety of sources (mostly from security information and event management [SIEM] systems) and apply workflows aligned to processes and procedures.”
