What is Security Orchestration?
Security orchestration involves interweaving people, processes, and technology in the most effective manner to strengthen the security posture of an organization. By streamlining security processes, connecting disparate security tools and technologies, and maintaining the right balance of machine-powered security automation and human intervention, security orchestration empowers security professionals to effectively and efficiently carry out security operations and incident response.
How is Security Orchestration different from Security Automation?
It’s common industry practice to use ‘security orchestration’ and ‘security automation’ interchangeably, but these terms are not the same.
Security automation is making machines do task-oriented ‘human work’. Security orchestration is making different products (both security and non-security) integrate with each other and automating tasks across products through workflows, while also allowing for end user oversight and interaction.
Security automation is a subset of security orchestration. Security orchestration involves the combination of people, processes, and technology to improve an organization’s security posture.
The Need for Security Automation and Orchestration
Security teams are wilting under dual pressures.
On one hand, the volume and complexity of alerts are increasing, demanding accuracy and agility in response to ensure that no alert slips through the cracks.
On the other hand, resources are scarce. SOCs face an uphill battle in trying to extract maximal value from existing product and personnel investments. CISOs now need to quantify security ROI before executive buy-in.
