Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR)

Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) is a term for software technologies that help organizations automatically handle IT security alerts and gather data about security threats. As the name suggests, SOAR tools fall under three categories: orchestration (integrating and connecting different applications), automation (analyzing massive amounts of logs and other data), and response (reporting and reacting to security threats once detected).

SOAR technologies can help SMBs synthesize and optimize their IT security operations, even without the resources or budget for an in-house IT security team. SOAR platforms offer benefits such as quicker response times, more accurate threat analysis, and unifying IT security.
