Having a security analyst does not guarantee that an organization is not at risk. In fact, the risk of human error may open a company up to more potential issues. So, what is one to do? Cyber security automation can be an affordable solution, saving the company time and money, while preventing potentially damaging attacks. Unlike having a system manually monitored, there is not a delayed response time. Rather, the automated system detects the threat and takes the proper action. These systems are also intelligent. They can detect if potential threats require an intervention. An analyst would be notified and then must decide the risk level and whether interventions are needed. Another problem automated systems solve is whether further investigation is needed. An individual or team doing this could take hours, only to find that it was not necessary. Automation is the modern way to handle security needs.
