With cyberattacks happening at a frequency of every 39 seconds and organizations receiving thousands of alerts each month, security staff today are tasked with monitoring a larger attack surface than in previous years. Meanwhile, with the COVID-19 pandemic, the security landscape has further been challenged and subsequently invited more opportunities for security threats and data breaches, adding to the complexity of the current enterprise environment. This has indeed driven automation in security operations and incident response to rapidly identify and respond to a cyberattack or security breach. The automation of mundane and repetitive tasks releases the workforce from work overload and alert fatigue, which will translate to mitigate vulnerabilities, streamlining security operations, and maximizing existing security budgets while ensuring a better ROI.
Using automation, organizations can make their SecOps, and IT teams more efficient. However, on the rear side, businesses should also understand that automation may bring a lot of complexity. While the SecOps team can assess the impact of the risk, they cannot impact on production. Other challenges include the doubt about the accuracy of detecting threats and the limitation that not all security operations can be completely automated. At such a juncture, Security Automation solution providers play a critical role in providing a level of support and comprehensively understanding business needs to ensure its success.
