Security Platforms and AI Transform the SOC

Security teams are faced with relentless cyberattacks, and they cannot engineer defenses fast enough. SOC teams face limited visibility, insufficient context, and the inability to identify the threats that matter.  Analysts are even more burned out, switching from tool to tool, frantically trying to make sense of what they are seeing. CISOs and SOC leaders face a crisis in confidence within their departments, resulting in even more wasted time, missed threats, and higher risk throughout the organization. 

According to the 2022 Devo SOC Performance Report, 64% of analysts are experiencing a significant amount of pain in their jobs. However, 35% of analysts believe that advanced analytics and machine learning would help alleviate this pain.

AI-powered automation is available today in the Devo Platform to change the paradigm. This technology makes life easier for analysts and their leadership teams. They don’t need to worry about the gaps in skills or the availability of people resources. Instead, they are confident their resources can work more effectively with the threats and data that surface. Analysts who are content are less prone to burnout.

The lack of AI is the reason 96% of security professionals are not fully satisfied with their organization’s use of automation in the SOC.

AI capabilities supercharge the security analyst

SOC leaders are finding they need to evolve, spurring a philosophy of an AI-first SIEM and SOC, with capabilities that augment the work the analyst performs.

The Devo Platform was built for this moment. 

The proven technology of the Devo Platform has been transformed into an AI-powered SIEM, UEBA, and SOAR solution. Security teams can extend their abilities with full visibility, behavioral analytics, and intelligence to quickly and effectively respond to identified threats with the correct decisions. 

Analysts can augment their threat investigation abilities using:

  • Devo Behavior Analytics: Anomalous user and entity behavior detection
  • Devo DeepTrace: Autonomous alert investigation and threat-hunting solution
  • Devo SOAR: ML-powered security orchestration, automation, and response solution

Each organization has different challenges, but one commonality we see is the poor utilization of the security analyst’s time. Let’s take a look at what our customers realize after deploying our platform:

Devo SOAR helped one customer reduce the time they spent on one type of alert from 30 minutes to just 5 minutes. That’s over an 80% reduction in time. If you do the math, it’s 225 alerts/week x 25 minutes saved per alert. That equals 93 analyst hours saved per week!

In addition to time savings, the SOC’s accuracy level improved. In the course of manual investigations, security analysts made 98 mistakes (a 15% error rate), mischaracterizing threats or their security levels. Once the SOC adopted Devo SOAR, error rates dropped to just 21 per month (a 3% error rate).

The Devo Platform provides valuable threat intelligence against today’s and tomorrow’s adversaries to automate core security functions, mitigating the deficit of affordable, experienced cyber talent, while delivering superior value.

Security operations excel with our SIEM, our AI, and your extraordinary people.

The fact is, your analysts aren’t going anywhere. Cybercriminals will continue to find new ways to attack, which is why you want your people to be ready, willing, and able to stop them.  

That’s why we built our technology to help analysts do their best work. 

Devo provides analysts with an intelligent, easy-to-use, AI-powered SIEM that helps investigate the most serious threats that face your organization. With all data, information, and context in a single view, Devo brings an end to swivel chair investigations, shortening them from weeks and days to hours and minutes.
