3 Reasons why automation is the way forward in cyber security
Cyber security automation combines technical capabilities and software with built-in processes to improve the management of security alerts within an organisation. Cyber security automation can take a complex and growing threat landscape and make it easier for IT teams to manage. In many instances, the biggest hurdle to automation is simply a perceived loss of control. In reality, the right automation tool can actually provide a greater level of visibility and enhanced oversight into the entire cyber security process. Here are three ways that automation will benefit your organisation:
- Uniform Strength
Automation provides the ability to match incoming attacks blow by blow, maintaining the greatest level of protection possible.
- Increased Efficiency
Adding automation into your IT processes helps to streamline workflows and create a much more uniform and efficient environment, directly contributing to your organisation’s bottom line.
- Fewer Errors
Even the most skilled IT professional are likely to make mistakes from time to time. Automation eliminates the problem of human error by removing the human element from some or all of the processes.
One of the biggest challenges IT professionals face is the pressurised task of making critical business decisions on the spot. Automation allows for you to gather, analyse and prioritise crucial data at the click of a button, further enhancing the threat detection and incident management process.
Automated or guided response actions backed by F-Secure experts
Once real threats are detected, F-Secure’s endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution uses automation to stop them immediately. It also provides a visualisation of the attack with all impacted endpoints and guidance on how to isolate and remediate the threat. This is the best way to ensure that your existing resources will be enough to respond swiftly and effectively.
