Redefining Security Orchestration And Automation With Cortex XSOAR
According to Gartner, by the end of 2022, 30% of businesses with a securit team larger than 5 will use SOAR tools in their SOC. Cortex XSOAR is a comprehensive SOAR platform that combines security orchestration, case management, real-time collaboration and native threat intel management to serve security teams across the incident lifecycle.
Redefining Security Orchestration and Automation with Cortex XSOAR
Cortex XSOAR is a comprehensive security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform that unifies case management, automation, real-time collaboration, and threat intelligence management to serve security teams across the incident lifecycle.
With the ever expanding security horizon, security professionals are always looking for things to make their life and jobs easier. When it comes to security orchestration and automation (SOAR), it can be a complicated environment. This environment is similar to an ecosystem. And just like any ecosystem, it can go terribly wrong if not managed properly.
Any great tool can only be as useful if it can integrate with other partners. That's what makes Cortex XSOAR exceptional with 360+ integrations. With so many integrations, this opens up Cortex XSOAR to several great capabilities at your fingertips. Users also have the ability to combine the real-time threat detection capability of Google Chronicle with the security orchestration and automation features of Cortex XSOAR to better understand threat activity within their organizations and automate remediation across affected assets.
Today, Palo Alto Networks is announcing the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace, around their Cortex XSOAR, security orchestration, automation, and response platform. The marketplace, which will make available validated content packs from vendors, channel partners and customers, is designed principally to foster the exchange of ideas around the XSOAR platform, with automation being a principal focus.

In the continuous fight against cyber threats, it has never been more crucial for security operations teams to be equipped with the proper weapons. Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) solutions are quickly becoming a necessity for Security Operation Center (SOC) teams to allow more effective and efficient threat detection, triage, investigation, and remediation. Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) is a set of technologies that enables a Security Operation Center (SOC) to classify, analyze, and remediate threats using standardized workflows and automation in order to improve SOC efficiency.
In 2022, Gartner has revised its SOAR security definition to include solutions that integrate incident response, orchestration and automation, and threat intelligence platform management capabilities on a single platform. According to Gartner's 2022 Market Guide for Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response Solutions, modern enterprises use SOAR tools to document and implement security processes, support security incident management, provide machine-based assistance to security teams, and better operationalize threat intelligence.
Security automation is all about streamlining and improving the efficiency of security operations because it deals with a variety of single tasks, whereas security orchestration connects all of your security tools so that they feed into one another, thereby creating a fast and efficient workflow process from start to finish.
Consider user provisioning and de-provisioning as an example. Numerous businesses use single sign-on (SSO) systems, which may significantly simplify the login process while protecting users and data. However, not all applications offer SSO, which poses a significant security risk for individuals with varying levels of access across platforms. Security orchestration provides a solid solution to this issue.
With security orchestration in place, SOCs may automate the addition or removal of users in various circumstances by using pre-built connectors with the business's applications and a custom procedure to guarantee that access is allowed only to personnel who need it.
While XDR provides enterprises with additional security capabilities and increased protection, it cannot replace SIEM and SOAR entirely. SOAR provides essential orchestration features that assist the security team in optimizing resources and establishing activity priorities. It is essential to retain the SOAR system and connect it with the XDR solution, since XDR solutions often lack these features.
