Why the World's Top MSSPs are Ditching Legacy SOAR for Hyperautomation

Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), desperate to automate repetitive tasks, initially turned to SOAR to reduce their workload and improve threat response times. Unfortunately, legacy SOAR tools still face scalability, flexibility, and integration challenges. As the complexity and volume of cyber threats continue to grow, the limitations of legacy SOAR have become more apparent, necessitating the move towards more advanced automation technologies like Torq Hyperautomation.

How To Stop MFA Fatigue Attacks

As organizations continue to digitize and passwords proliferate across systems, applications, and even assets, identity and access management (IAM) has become a pillar of cybersecurity. One component of IAM has become ubiquitous with access security: multi-factor authentication (MFA). MFA is an access control technique that adds a layer of security to user logins and access by making the user verify their identity.

Global SOC Survey Reveals Hope for SecOps Teams As Post-SOAR Hyperautomation Boosts Analyst Retention and Tenure

The SANS 2024 SOC Survey, a comprehensive new Torq-sponsored study, reveals that for the first time in decades, the tenure of SOC and Security Analysts is increasing. They’re choosing to remain at their posts for three-to-five years, up from an average of one-to-three years. Modern post-SOAR hyperautomation solutions are playing a significant role in alleviating the burdens these cybersecurity pros face.

Securing the Future: The Synergy of SOC as a Service and Cloud Security Consulting

In an era where digital transformation is no longer a choice but a necessity, the importance of robust cybersecurity measures cannot be overstated. Organizations worldwide are increasingly turning to cloud solutions to drive efficiency and innovation. However, this shift brings new challenges in securing digital assets. Two pivotal services in this landscape are SOC as a Service (SOCaaS) and Cloud Security Consulting. These services not only provide essential protection but also deliver strategic insights into managing and mitigating cyber risks effectively.

Exploring the Future of SOC Automation with Francis Odum

The future of SOC automation is dynamic and rapidly evolving, promising to revolutionize how security operations centers (SOCs) tackle their most pressing challenges. As cybersecurity threats grow in volume and sophistication, SOC teams are increasingly overwhelmed by alert fatigue, false positives, and a critical shortage of skilled professionals.

7 Challenges in Scaling SOC Operations and How to Overcome Them

In the past four years, cyberattacks have more than doubled. Cybercriminals are leveraging emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) to facilitate more sophisticated attacks. Geopolitical tumult has increased cyber risk. Couple these factors with a near-ubiquitous desire for businesses to expand their operations, and it’s easy to understand the need for scaling Security Operations Center (SOC) operations.

Believe the Hype: New Gartner Report Places Automated Incident Response on the "Slope of Enlightenment" and SOAR in the "Trough of Disillusionment"

Gartner just hammered another nail into the coffin of SOAR. The just-released “Gartner IT Service Management software (ITSM) Hype Cycle” report confirms SecOps professionals are profoundly unhappy with antiquated, legacy SOAR products and vendors.

Unified Defense: The Importance of Security Operations Center Integration

As cyber threats continuously evolve, hackers are refining their attack tactics and the frequency of assaults. Over the past several years, 63% of Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts report the size of their attack surface has increased, according to Security Magazine. Similarly, our 2023 Threat Roundup research discovered the enterprise is experiencing 13 attacks every second.
