So you’ve finally decided to make the leap and adopt SOAR tools into your SOC. Maybe you’ve even narrowed your SOAR solutions down to a few choices. With SOAR being a relatively new and exciting cybersecurity option for organizations, both big and small, it can be easy to get caught up in all of the potential benefits.
Earlier this year, StratoZen changed the security alert playing field with the implementation of our enhanced security notifications. Going above and beyond the typical one sentence basic alert, these notifications provide real and in-depth insight into all different types of cybersecurity threats.

CMMC is a new unified standard for companies in the defense industrial base (DIB) supply chain who are required to protect the confidentiality of federal contract information (FCI) and controlled unclassified information (CUI).
“Today, cyber security operations do not suffer from a ‘Big Data’ problem but rather a ‘Data Analysis’ problem.” – SANS Institute Security Operation Center (SOC) analysts are getting stretched thin and hitting efficiency roadblocks, especially as they gather and analyze alarm data from multiple platforms.
Security information event management (SIEM) software is a suite of solutions that facilitate the collection, oversight, and analysis of log data from multiple computer systems across distributed IT systems. SIEM software’s main purpose is to identify threats and report suspicious activity.
The Center for Internet Security (CIS) critical security controls (initially developed by the SANS Institute and known as SANS Critical Controls) are a list of recommended high-priority and highly effective defensive actions. These actions are the starting point for any business, enterprise, and company looking to improve their cybersecurity, and are viewed as “must-do, do-first” actions.
Watch our Recorded Interview with a MSP Discussing the Impact of COVID-19 on Service Providers and Customers
As part of StratoZen’s effort to support the MSP community during these challenging times, we hosted a live interview with one of our MSP partners. In this interview, moderated by Eric Gravett, CRO of StratoZen, Don Baham, President of Kraft Technology Group and Chris Gebhardt, VP of Operations of StratoZen, discussed the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on both businesses and customers.
To aid organizations in communicating common and emerging threats to users, we are providing a list of example threats that we’re watching specific to the COVID-19 outbreak.
As many companies around the country begin work-from-home policies, we’re seeing an increase in the number of cybersecurity attacks aimed at end users and end user systems. We know that many IT operations teams – both in-house enterprise teams and Service Providers – are scrambling to implement the technical capabilities and processes to enable a remote workforce.
My last post, entitled “What is SOAR and why is it important”, illustrated why SOAR is needed in the industry alongside faster maturation. If you didn’t catch that one, I’d suggest reading it first for context. With that post as the backdrop, I will now focus on how we can solve the two main issues with traditional SIEM and SOC: response time and expertise, both of which SOAR promises to solve.
Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) has been getting a lot of attention recently. I thought it would be good to take a moment and discuss what it is and why it is important to the industry. SOAR Security Definition Gartner was the first to formally define SOAR: “SOAR refers to technologies that enable organizations to collect inputs monitored by the security operations team.
Anyone in the cybersecurity field will tell you that enabling Multi-Factor Authentication is the single most important service to prevent nefarious account take-overs. While this information is true, it is also artificially imputed that with MFA enabled, password security is reduced.
