As your business grows, so does the pressure on your security team to do more. Automation is essential, but it's not a panacea for the breadth and scope of today's threats.

Feedback from FireMon customers shows they know automation can help them. They believe that anywhere from 50 to 60 percent of recurring, cyclic tasks could be automated. Automation brings with it many connotations, and while the prospect of reducing the workload of security teams is no doubt appealing, it's important to understand what automation can accomplish and what it can't.

This webinar will discuss 7 myths associated with Security Automation:

  • Automation is a substitute for warm seats
  • Automation is not orchestration
  • Everything should be automated
  • Automation is only for incident response
  • Automation equals better security
  • Automation is only for big organizations
  • You can set it and forget it
