IDC Technology Assessment Guide: Guide for Extracting Value from SOAR Faster with NDR

SOAR has tremendous potential to accelerate security operations. It can automatically find and reject false positives before they reach security teams, helping them focus on what matters. But to really be useful, SOAR requires data integrations with other security tooling. One critical tool is network detection and response (NDR). See how NDR software extracts metadata from packets, applies insights about the packet based on user and device behaviors and network events, and cross-correlates with threat intelligence or attack simulation to find adversaries.
