Partnering SOAR with SIEM could be the one-two punch for improved cyber security strategies.

Can SOAR Be the Answer to Security Issues?

Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) tools allow security operations teams to collect inputs and manage threats. Because there is so much information moving across networks and endpoints, SOAR is an invaluable component in cyber security strategies. The problem is that given that there are different SOAR tools on the market, can you be sure you’re implementing the right ones

Common Problems and Endpoint Monitoring

The number of endpoints has exploded in recent years, which means managing them and protecting them has become vastly more difficult. Even in organizations where the security teams are fully staffed, the volume of alerts coming through is difficult to manage and there are too many false positives, causing wasted time and energy on non-problems.

Manual monitoring leads to frequent human error and the mundane nature of the task is also a cause of burnout. Both situations can lead to cyber security problems that can be costly in a number of ways to the organization. Knowing this, organizations are looking into ways to automate the monitoring of endpoints and seeking out a solution that will integrate with legacy infrastructure.

The security tools that are in place are often outdated and no longer provide the level of protection they once did. Is SOAR technology the miracle cure? Leading security experts agree that SOAR is not going to solve all the problems, but utilizing its automated features can reduce burnout and improve the situations that lead to human error. According to a 2021 survey called “SOAR Report” published by Swimlane, 64% of organizations that have used SOAR for more than five years consider their solution extremely useful.

Can SOAR and SIEM Work Together?

Security information and event management (SIEM) solutions detect threats and many organizations are already using SIEM. Will investing in yet another security solution offer a return on investment or is it just redundant and wasteful spending?

SIEM solutions work well with SOAR solutions because they each bring something different to cyber security. You can save money and time by utilizing both, because while SIEM is great at detecting threats, the expense of how to manage those threats can be complex and expensive, which is where SOAR closes the gap. You can use SOAR solutions’ playbooks and processes that help create response plans that are thorough and don’t come with the costs or complexity associated with SIEM.

The question remains: How do you know which cyber security solutions will be a good fit for your organization? Which solutions offer more than you need and which ones are too basic? At Safari Solutions, we’ve got answers for you. Contact us and let’s talk about a customized solution for your organization.


Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
