White Paper

Streamlining IR Operations with Orchestration and Automation

Effective response measures prevent minor security incidents from becoming major data breaches. Organizations can limit the impact of any given event if attacks are stopped early. Unfortunately, incident response (IR) teams charged with handling security alerts and investigating incidents are overwhelmed and understaffed. On average, a 2016 BakerHostetler3 report estimates it takes 50 days for companies to detect, investigate, and contain security incidents.

This white paper examines:

  • Challenges IR teams face with response, given the myriad of tools available
  • Key features to look for when evaluating a modern incident response solution
  • Business impact of implementing response automation
