Is Cybersecurity automation a wise thinking  

937

The very first topic which is trending on Google and related to Information Security is Cybersecurity Automation. It’s nothing but offering/using products that are enriched with automated tools such as vulnerability management where cyber vulnerabilities are automatically detected and fixed on an enterprise network.

 

In technical terms, such tools are referred to as Security Automation and Orchestration (SAOR) products which are purpose-built to track down threats, analyze their severity and quarantine them in time.

 

How it is important to organizations?

 

As organizations are increasingly emphasizing going digital, it is also giving rise to technical complexities such as incompatibility with applications and such. Thus, as a result of such tech blunders, organizations are finding it hard to perform as per requirement, stay competitive in the market and interact with customers.

 

If this continues, then companies might find it difficult to lead if their in-house Cybersecurity tools fail to keep up with the changing environment like defending, monitoring and responding to threats.

 

This is where Cybersecurity automation helps the security teams to redesign and implement innovative security strategies, including zero trust and cyber hygiene within an enterprise.

 

As security vulnerabilities can be identified in time with automation, it can help technical teams in providing actionable insights into corporate networks.

 

However, not all seems to be good with automation as the benefits can only be reaped if the Cybersecurity teams are in a position to manifest the flaws with smart thinking- especially in code and developmental practices. Also going forward with a hybrid approach will help eliminate complex integration tasks which are otherwise tedious to deal with.

 

Remember, as the complexity in the field of Cybersecurity increase, the need for automated tools and techniques becomes a necessity. So, organizational heads should think wisely and make such tools surely included in their security roadmaps.
