In the high-stakes world of cybersecurity, Security Operations Centers (SOCs) are no strangers to the constant hum of alerts, notifications, and warnings. Amidst this dissonance, security teams struggle to pinpoint the critical issues that demand their attention, often leading to overlooked vulnerabilities and a less efficient response to threats. With this challenge in mind, we embarked on a mission to transform the SOC landscape, utilizing the power of artificial intelligence to sift through the noise and enable teams to focus on what truly matters.
The Overwhelming Challenge of Alert Fatigue
The traditional SOC grapples with an onslaught of alerts from various tools and systems, many of which prove to be insignificant or irrelevant in the long run. According to the Voice of the SOC Analyst report, analysts are mired in time-consuming tasks and frustrated with the volume and lack of context around alerts. This deluge of information not only consumes valuable time and resources but also increases the likelihood of false positives and negatives, leaving organizations exposed to genuine threats. Our vision acknowledges the tradeoff between false positives and false negatives and strives to minimize their impact.
Harnessing AI for a Smarter SOC
At the heart of our approach lies the deployment of intelligent autonomous agents that harness the latest advances in AI to process alerts dynamically and non-deterministically. By allowing these AI-driven agents to manage alerts, human intervention is reserved for situations that genuinely demand expertise and attention. This drastically reduces alert processing time and allows security teams to focus on more pressing issues.
Over time, our system automatically identifies opportunities for deterministic automations and suggests them for unsupervised alert processing. This not only eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming setup but also ensures that the AI consistently detects and proposes automation opportunities. As a result, the number of alerts is reduced, as a portion of them are processed automatically.
Empowering Analysts for a Safer Future
With automation in place, security analysts can focus on higher-impact tasks, such as improving processes and procedures, developing advanced detection and alert rules, and becoming more knowledgeable about threat actor tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). In essence, they can better plan for the future, contributing to a safer and more secure digital environment.
Inviting Collaboration for a Better Cybersecurity Future
We understand the importance of collaboration and open communication in addressing the complex challenges of cybersecurity. Our goal is to work together with those who share our vision to make a meaningful impact on the SOC landscape.
