In a recent survey at Black Hat 2017, conference attendees shared their thoughts on the state of security incident response.

Siloed teams and systems were rated the #1 roadblock to automating security incident response.

It’s time for organizations to consider a new approach to security incident response–one that brings IT and security teams together through automated workflows to prioritize and resolve real threats fast.
