SOAR Security comprises numerous advantages for multiple organizations, such as operational reductions, reduced alert fatigue, and facilitates easier SOC Reporting.
FREMONT, CA: In order to reduce manual work and enable fast threat feedback, security orchestration, automation, and response, SOAR solutions help integrate and automate security operations. By automating incident response, complexity is reduced, and effectiveness is increased.
Security analysts can minimize manual work by using SOAR tools to detect, prioritize, and remediate threats. Monitoring threats and incident responses are all part of this process.
SOAR - What Does It Mean?
Insights into security: SOAR's security feature covers machine-based security tasks across complex enterprise infrastructures. Traditionally, organizations handled most of their security burden in-house, with security teams performing these tasks manually. Modern business demands and schedules require security tools that increase the speed and quality of security processes.
Security tasks must be combined with orchestration, automation, and response capabilities to establish a cohesive, organization-wide security strategy. Organizing security-related actions, such as incident investigation and response, is known as security orchestration. Automated security is the execution of these actions by machines. The threat response is a unified framework that security teams can use to plan and manage their response to threats.
Orchestration: SOAR's second component is orchestration. It helps organizations manage their extending inventory of security tools and technologies, which can present new risks, challenges, and attacks. When organizations store more tools than they can track, critical security data often remain siloed in separate tools.
With SOAR, dedicated security teams can correlate insights from multiple tools and systems and find event information. Orchestration capabilities enable de-siloing and centralized analysis of event data. By orchestrating data across all security tools, threat detection can be accelerated, and incident response can be facilitated more quickly.
Security operations centers can use SOAR to scan for indicators of compromise (IoCs) and cross-reference them with threat intelligence sources. Using SOAR, the SOC is able to make sense of massive amounts of data from a single dashboard, improving visibility and supporting a comprehensive cybersecurity approach.
Automation: In order to use security tools efficiently, automation is the third building block of SOAR. Performing repetitive, menial tasks in security processes is a major challenge for many SOCs. To detect real threats, a security team must filter SIEM alerts to identify false positives.
It is helpful to contextualize the threat intelligence, but security feeds will still produce tens or hundreds of false positives that need to be investigated. Alerts are checked against rules that help distinguish between legitimate events and false positives using SOAR.
Response: The final aspect of SOAR is the response. Besides helping other security tools identify threats, SOAR can also remove cybersecurity threats from networks. In order to contain and eradicate malicious actors, the SOAR solution works collaboratively with other tools.
Aside from SOAR's integration and orchestration capabilities, response capabilities help the SOC identify security gaps and address them.
SOAR is becoming an integral part of Cybersecurity: It solves several challenges that traditional solutions cannot address but cause increased workloads and negatively impact productivity and security. By using SOAR solutions, teams can respond to alerts rapidly, addressing real threats in a timely and effective manner.
By sifting through piles of alerts, SOAR technology also reduces the number of repetitive tasks related to other areas. Repetitive tasks are involved in monitoring, detecting, and preventing threats. In order to identify patterns and respond to recurring threats autonomously, SOAR utilizes Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning.

BANGKOK (AP) — Shares fell Monday in Asia after Wall Street benchmarks closed out their worst week since early December. U.S. futures edged higher while oil prices fell. Higher rates pressure business activity and investment prices. Higher rates can drive down inflation, but they raise the risk of a recession. In other trading Monday, U.S. benchmark crude oil lost 15 cents to $76.17 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.26 days ago Herald Review
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Tens of thousands of people filled Mexico City’s vast main plaza Sunday to protest electoral law reforms that they say threaten democracy. The marchers were clad mostly in white and pink — the color of the National Electoral Institute — and shouted slogans like “Don’t Touch my Vote!”The reforms proposed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador were passed last week. Many at Sunday's protest expressed hope that Mexico's Supreme Court would overturn parts of the reform, as courts have done with other presidential initiatives. The electoral institute also issues the secure voter ID cards that are the most commonly accepted form of identification in Mexico, and oversees balloting in the remote and often dangerous corners of the country. While he cannot run for re-election, his Morena party is favored in next year’s national elections and the opposition is in disarray.27 days ago Herald Review
WASHINGTON (AP) — Lawmakers in several Democratic-controlled states are advocating sweeping voter protections this year, reacting to what they view as a broad undermining of voting rights by the Supreme Court and Republican-led states as well as a failed effort in Congress to bolster access to the polls. They seek to implement on a statewide basis many of the protections under the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965, a law that many Democrats and voting rights groups say is being stripped of its most important elements. If the legislation is enacted, the states would join California, New York, Oregon, Washington and Virginia in having comprehensive voting rights laws. Some state voting rights bills also seek to create databases for information that has not always been readily available, such as polling place locations, voting rules and redistricting maps. Passing state voting rights legislation is only half the battle, said state Sen. Jennifer McClellan, a Virginia Democrat who introduced a state voting rights act that passed in 2021 when Democrats controlled both houses of the Legislature and the governor's office.28 days ago Herald Review
OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) — The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for killing more than 70 soldiers, wounding dozens and taking five hostage, in an ambush on a military convoy in northern Burkina Faso. Last week the government confirmed that 51 soldiers died in the Deou ambush but it has not responded to requests for updated numbers or commented on the attack in Tin-Akoff. This is the deadliest ambush on soldiers since the new junta leader, Capt. Ibrahim Traore, seized power in September and analysts say it could threaten his grip on power. Some locals say the increase of jihadi violence against the military is revenge for torture and extrajudicial killings by soldiers against people presumed to be jihadis.28 days ago Herald Review
(AP) — James Abourezk, a South Dakota Democrat who grew up on the Rosebud Indian Reservation, became the first Arab American U.S. senator and was known for his quick wit as he advocated for populist causes, died Friday. While in hospice, James Abourezk was surrounded by his wife Sanaa Abourezk and other family members. Abourezk was the first chair of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs and successfully pressed for the American Indian Policy Review Commission. He led a delegation from South Dakota, including members of the University of South Dakota basketball team, to Cuba for a game with the Cuban national basketball team. He set up a law practice in Rapid City where he specialized in American Indian law, but also remained active in advocacy on international policy.28 days ago Herald Review
The lawsuit filed Thursday contends that the Republican-backed law, which took effect in August, has caused Missouri school districts to remove hundreds of books from their shelves. The ACLU, the Missouri Association of School Librarians and the Missouri Library Association are asking the Circuit Court in Kansas City to find the law unconstitutional or clarify how and when it applies. The law endangers not only school librarians but public and academic librarians who work with K-12 schools, Joe Kohlburn of the Missouri Library Association's Intellectual Freedom Committee said in a statement. The ACLU argues that the law violates educators' due process rights because it is unconstitutionally vague and allows government overreach. The lawsuit notes that federal and state law already prohibits providing obscene and pornographic materials to minors, and that school boards approve procedures for choosing appropriate library materials.29 days ago Herald Review
