What Is Security Automation and Orchestration (SOAR) ?

Security automation and orchestration tools, also known as O&A or SOAR solutions, are designed to improve the productivity, efficiency and effectiveness of security operations centers and the analysts who work in them. As the term suggests, these tools automate routine, often time-consuming tasks, such as gathering and correlating data from disparate security systems, and they help orchestrate the incident management and incident response lifecycles. In the process, they help security teams address the staffing shortage; bring consistency, discipline and predictability to security operations; and help reduce the time it takes to detect and respond to incidents.

Features

Interactive Investigations

RSA NetWitness Orchestrator facilitates collaborative, “conversation-driven” investigations—both among analysts and between analysts and an intelligent chat bot—in a virtual, ChatOps-powered war room (a key differentiator of the product). The ChatOps interface records entire investigations and indexes them for future learning and knowledge retention. It also features a rich tool kit for investigating related incidents.

Real-Time Execution

Another differentiating feature of RSA NetWitness Orchestrator is its command-line interface, which lets analysts run commands directly from the central console. Combined with the chat bot, the command-line interface facilitates quick investigational pivots and real-time, secured execution of actions right within the console, dramatically decreasing screen-switching and documentation times.

Intelligent Chat Bot

The machine learning-powered chat bot learns from all the interactive commands, playbook executions and other incident actions to help analysts with their investigations. It learns and executes common commands, matches incidents to the appropriate analyst, offers to automate a wide variety of tasks, and recommends actions for incident owners to take.

Auto-Documentation

Auto-documentation of all investigation actions provides a comprehensive audit trail to support regulatory compliance. It also yields powerful knowledge management benefits: Because activities are automatically documented, a sudden personnel loss no longer leads to a permanent loss of expertise.

Complete Incident Management

RSA NetWitness Orchestrator manages all aspects of the incident lifecycle on a common platform, including documentation, evidence collection and journaling; SLA tracking; regulatory compliance activities and more. The incident management capabilities are highly customizable and allow you to bring much more data (including host data) into each case, both of which further set the product apart.

Extensible Integration Framework

RSA NetWitness Orchestrator integrates with 100+ security products out of the box. It’s designed with a powerful SDK that makes it easy for developers to quickly build new integrations in Python or JavaScript—without the need for external tools or environments.

Benefits

Meaningful, Prioritized Alerts

RSA NetWitness Orchestrator aggregates, standardizes and normalizes alerts from your entire stack of security technologies. It enriches these alerts with threat intelligence and other data about your business so that analysts at all levels can more quickly see the full scope of an attack and act decisively on the incidents that matter most.
