A SOAR tool can orchestrate security actions (like
investigations, triage, response) across various security
products in a team’s arsenal, and automate otherwise
manual repetitive security tasks.
But not all SOAR tools are created equal. A best-ofbreed
SOAR solution will provide a set of capabilities
Investing in a Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) platform is a wise
