“By 2019, 40% of large enterprises will require specialized, automated tools to meet regulatory obligations in the event of a serious information security incident.” Gartner.
Automating your cyber security incident response helps to:
- Create standard security processes, reduce manual work and provide more consistent, reliable response actions.
- Reduce workload – respond to weaknesses or policy violations with automated review and remediation that preserves security best practices.
- Reduce response times – integrate with both configuration assessments and event management to provide the fastest response to incidents with the maximum information available to your security administrators.
- Reduce costs of securing systems and networks while enabling more scalable, repeatable incident responses, and streamlining your organization’s compliance efforts.
Automated Cyber Security Incident Response enables data enrichment
When an attack occurs, there’s information generated about the incident, but you need more than just incident data. You also need to collect relevant information about the context of the incident, which often must be correlated from multiple disparate systems, such as:
- Intelligence Feeds
- Intrusion Detection / Prevention Systems (IDS / IPS)
- Anti-Virus Software
- File Integrity Checkers
- OS, App, & Network Device Logs
- National Vulnerability Database (NVD)
- Help Desk Ticketing Systems
