Security Automation

Staying Ahead Of Threats with Security Automation

For security teams racing to identify threats and prioritize initiatives, security automation is the key to more timely alerts, faster recognition of threats, accelerated response and greater security orchestration.

Security automation enables technology to handle tasks that would otherwise be performed manually by security specialists. By automating security program workflows and elements like alert triage and indicator enrichment, security analysts have more time for advanced security analytics and enhancing security strategy, programs and security operations.
