Beyond a SOAR Platform: Augmentation vs Automation

Augmentation Vs Automation, What’s The Difference?

Augmentation is the ability to automate any process that you require within your own framework. Traditional security automation platforms aim to automate processes that they dictate, limiting you to their predetermined framework. Preventing you from truly optimizing your security process. This is because security teams need to automate as many processes as possible. The traditional SOAR platform structure prevents them from doing that. By leveraging a platform to your requirements and augmenting the entire process, you’re able to strengthen your incident response. Reduce the likelihood of human error and truly maximize your team’s skillset. In addition, providing them the full ability to focus on higher-level alerts, as well as threat hunting.

Only responding directly to the threat is not enough. We believe SOCs need to augment subroutines, which will maximize the security process. As out-of-band programs are updated by non-CyOP’s™ users (for example IT) automation can be kicked off to augment alerts and incidents (i.e closing alerts, updating status or providing additional context). This allows infinite orchestration from in or outside the product.

What Augmentation Can Do For You

CyOPs™ has the unique ability to automate on any point of data such as due data, criticality, or use. Also, if a certain critically has been reached you can decide to take a computer offline instead of contacting the IT team. Playbooks can be triggered by more than just an alert, tailor the platform to complete tasks. Build efficiencies and automate every task, change, or update your desire. Use automation to augment your entire SOC instead of limiting yourself to only automating one thing. Enhance your security and giving you additional time, allowing you to continue to maximize your ROI, while truly eliminating alert fatigue.

Why Augmentation is Right For You

Build efficiencies and automate every task, change, or update to your desire. Use automation to augment your entire SOC instead of limiting yourself to only automating one thing. Enhance your security, giving you additional time, allowing you to continue to maximize your ROI truly eliminating alert fatigue.
