The problems in cybersecurity are well known. We see a high volume of attacks, new tools providing increasing numbers of alerts, and fewer staff to triage and remediate them. Full automation, seen as the complete replacement of people by machines, is neither practical nor desirable, but replacing manual, tedious security tasks with automation - including identification, correlation and response - leads to more accurate results quicker with more time for skilled analysts to tackle the most complex threats. Join this session to discover how to implement security automation into your legacy systems while optimizing investment and resource use, and gain the best possible outcome for your organization's security posture.
