Intelligently Automate Incident Response​

With LogRhythm’s SmartResponse™, you’re in power to decide the best solution to automate work so your team can focus on complex incident response that requires skill and creativity. Choose from fully automated playbook actions or semi-automated, approval-based response actions that allow users to review before countermeasures are executed.

SmartResponse SOAR security automation use cases include:

Endpoint quarantine:

Identify the network port where a suspicious device is located and disable the port/device.

Collect machine data:

Gather forensic data from a suspicious endpoint during a malware investigation.

Suspend users:

If your team suspects an account has been compromised, they can halt a user’s account access no matter what device they use.

Kill processes:

Discontinue any unknown or blacklisted process on a critical device with an automated SmartResponse action.

Suspend network access:

If data exfiltration is occurring, your team can kill the connection by updating the access control list used by your firewalls.

Frequently Asked Questions

Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) is a collection of technologies that helps a SOC qualify, investigate and remediate threats utilizing standardized workflows and automation to increase security operation center (SOC) efficiency.

Security automation is the process of executing security-operation related tasks, without manual intervention. Automation allows security analysts to save time on menial tasks and focus more on strategic tasks that involve decision making.

Security orchestration is a method of connecting and integrating security technologies to streamline processes and enable security teams.

Security, orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) enables security teams to effectively collaborate, qualify, and manage incidents with improved quality and speed by prioritizing and standardizing incident response activities in the workflow.

SOAR solutions can reduce time to qualify and investigate threats, streamline workflows with standardized response processes, increase security analysts’ productivity, and reduce mean time to response (MTTR).

Easily Collaborate on Security Orchestration

If your team lacks a centralized place to collaborate and search through previous investigations, incidents may slip through the cracks. SOAR security capabilities make it easy for your team to create and track remediation and recovery during an investigation with Case Management. An analyst can easily escalate a case, label a priority to it, and assign a collaborator.

With these security orchestration capabilities, your team will be able to centralize all associated case evidence in LogRhythm’s evidence locker repository for final resolution and easy access in the future.
