Organizations that have not yet accepted automation are running out of time. Automation will ultimately be a required component in everyday operations among all organizations in every sector.

Fremont, CA: There is often the fear that cybersecurity automation will ultimately replace humans when it comes to cybersecurity automation. While those concerns are understandable, the fact is that automation in security operations is intended to assist rather than impede security personnel. With the rapid growth of cyber threats, cybersecurity automation gradually becomes a requirement rather than a luxury.

There is often the fear that cybersecurity automation will eventually substitute humans for cybersecurity automation. While those concerns are intelligible, the reality is that automation in security operations is aimed at assisting rather than impeding security personnel. With the rapid growth of cyber threats, cybersecurity automation gradually becomes a requirement rather than a luxury.

Role of automation in cybersecurity operations

Automation's target in cybersecurity operations is to relieve cybersecurity firms' workload by automating recurring actions. Security automation permits security teams to automate time-consuming and repetitive processes to enhance SecOps workflow and increase productivity. Security automation, allowed by the groundbreaking technology SOAR, gives SOCs a significant boost in SecOps, causing a 10x rise in SOC productivity and an 80% reduction in incident response time.

SOAR is a technology that enables businesses to turn operational security processes into a workflow and orchestrate present technologies to better recognize, track, and alleviate cyber incidents.

Analysts have many jobs and processes, and automation enables them to select which repetitive operations they wish to automate and which they wish to complete manually.

Drawbacks of automation in cybersecurity operations

The drawback of automation is that some people believe technology can completely replace humans in security operations. The fact is that, no matter how advanced automation is in terms of autonomy, it still needs human guidance and navigation. Although automation can do duties on its own, it must be trained.

With a SOAR solution, analysts may replicate threat response processes and decide which functions should be automatic and which should not. Manual control of the automation process must be improved and tailored to the manner the business wants the automation process controlled.
