Have you ever noticed trees that are marked with spray paint? Now, I’m no tree spray paint marking expert, but it’s my understanding that different colors or symbols can signify different things, such as trees that need to be removed, are damaged but may survive, need to be treated, or are a danger to public utilities.

Combining security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) is a no-brainer. CrowdStrike has been the greatest evangelist of the 1-10-60 security benchmark (that’s one minute to detect a breach, 10 minutes to triage it, and 60 minutes to contain it), and with most companies falling considerably short of this benchmark, automation and orchestration can bring you that much closer.

Today we are joined by Axel Schulz, who, like a few others who have graced the “Sitdown With a SOC Star” series space, did not enter the security operations field in a traditional way. And he wants to scream that fact from the rooftops, as it just may encourage others to not overthink their previous experience and eventually help close the incontrovertible talent deficit facing the industry. He’s also fanatic about threat detection & response, playbooks and bicycling.

But adversity can bring opportunity, and many of the businesses that prospered because of COVID-19 were the ones able to offer customers something that the crisis took away from them.

When Siemplify revealed roughly a year ago that it was launching Siemplify Cloud, an industry-first, cloud-native version of its security orchestration and automation (SOAR) platform, the announcement was about more than a product. “We had to change all our mindsets as a company,” recalls Alon Cohen, Siemplify co-founder and CTO. “There are different processes between being a SaaS (software-as-a-service) company and an on-premises company.”

Long before he was forced to reconcile his passion for the Boston Red Sox with a new love interest, or became the king of late night, Jimmy Fallon made the “IT guy” famous. As Nick Burns, “Your Company’s Computer Guy,” Fallon expertly (and hilariously) personified the brutish, condescending and dismissive IT admin we all fear, the person with simply no time for their perceived lowly technical knowledge and unsuspecting nature of the average end-user.

The adoption of security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platforms has grown significantly in recent years.

Business guru Peter Drucker is famous for saying that you can't manage what you don't measure, and those words ring especially true in the security operations center (SOC). The SOC is home to great responsibility to the business, as it sits as ground zero for threat detection and response. But it also can be unwieldy due to a number of challenges, including an overreliance on manual processes, disparate sources of information and intelligence, and a lack of skills and people power to handle all the alerts and cases coming through.

One of the big reasons security operations centers excel at what they do is because they are a centralized unit charged with monitoring, assessing and addressing activity across a company's IT infrastructure. But with many SOCs shifting to remote arrangements, this cohesion has come undone. Yet, you and your team must charge on, and the good news is you can overcome any bumpy adjustment period by ensuring you have all of your bases covered.
