JR Reagan, global chief information security officer, Deloitte, recently posted an article suggesting that human error is a major impediment to the effectiveness of cyber security programs today. If driverless cars could prevent accidents, could security automation and orchestration minimize the damage resulting from cyber attacks?
Automating the complex threat response process can:
Minimize the risk to assets and intellectual property.
Protect the brand from negative exposure and repercussions.
Reduce the impact, time, and cost resulting from cyber attacks.
Maybe the future has already arrived.
Eliminating human error, automating threat response holistically, and bridging the gap between the Security Operations Center (SOC) and Networking Operations Center (NOC) are essential. Bradford’s leadership team will be onsite at Palo Alto Networks Ignite 2016 to talk about these issues and solutions. We look forward to connecting with customers, prospects, partners and industry experts as we collectively seek to address the cyber-security issues in front of us.
The integration between Bradford’s Network Sentry and Palo Alto Networks’ next-generation firewall and threat prevention solutions is an important component of our automated threat response solution. Through this integration, our joint customers can enhance the fidelity of security events with user, device and connection related information provided by Network Sentry, and can automatically enforce policy-based “containment” actions on the compromised endpoint.
If you’d like to learn more about this approach, please contact us. We’d also love to hear what you think about the driverless cars analogy, and whether the time for Security Automation and Orchestration has arrived.
