Leading security operations platform innovator, ThreatQuotient has announced that the company has been included as a Representative Vendor in the 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) Solutions.
Gartner defines SOAR as solutions that “combine incident response, orchestration and automation, and threat intelligence (TI) management capabilities in a single platform.”
ThreatQuotient has been developing for years a full featured security operations platform designed to provide companies the relevant, contextual intelligence and automation needed to support multiple teams and capabilities. SOAR platforms are evolving towards such security operations and ThreatQuotient’s data-driven approach to it provides high confidence in the intelligence being used, the decisions that are made and the incident response workflows that are executed.
The engine behind this approach is ThreatQ, a threat-centric security operations platform that aggregates, scores, and prioritizes intelligence. ThreatQ as a SOAR platform can help organizations unify their cybersecurity infrastructure and components into a single defense ecosystem, allowing them to accelerate security investigations and significantly improve the mean time to respond to cyber threats.
Additionally, customer-controlled prioritization within ThreatQ is based on an organization’s risk profile and their own set of scoring parameters. ThreatQ automatically filters out noise and reveals the right priorities for action. To ensure teams remain focused on high-priority threats and to reduce false positives, the self-tuning Threat Library automatically learns, recalculates and reevaluates priorities based on a continuous flow of new data and context into ThreatQ. ThreatQ can achieve results such as freeing-up two to three full-time security analysts for higher level tasks with the help of automation and optimization.
On inclusion in Gartner’s Market Guide John Czupak, President and CEO expressed that they are encouraged by the evolving definition and industry understanding of SOAR, which is becoming more inclusive of threat intelligence and security incident response platforms. “ThreatQuotient’s approach to SOAR platforms starts with the threat, because we believe you cannot defend against or respond to what you do not understand. We believe Gartner’s latest Market Guide for SOAR Solutions validates the growing need for tools that are complementary to an organization’s arsenal of products and processes already in place. We are committed to continuing to meet the market need for a security operations platform that improves the effectiveness of the SOC,” he said.
