Acronym for security orchestration, automation, and response. SOAR is a collection of compatible software programs that allow an organization to collect data about security threats from multiple sources and create automated incident response workflows. SOAR, which integrates all of an organization’s security tools, systems, and applications, is gaining momentum in the market. According to Gartner, about 70% of organizations are expected to add SOAR capabilities to their dedicated security operations centers (SOCs) by 2021. Via automation and integration, SOAR solutions help businesses better handle disparate security products, increased alerts, and the security skills shortage.
