Security, Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) allow organizations to collect data about security threats from multiple sources to automate an appropriate response on repetitive tasks. As an analyst you need to juggle and pivot several times a day between multiple tools and devices to evaluate a huge amount information and deal with flood of repetitive tasks such as alerts, tickets, email, threat intelligence data, etc. The end goal is to centralize everything in one location to improve analysis using captured institutionalized knowledge.

If you are already using a SOAR tool, what were the main reasons to buy it and did it improve your ability to standardize response procedure in a digital workflow format and standardize best practice?

If you are not using SOAR but are considering implementing it, what are the main qualities you are looking for in this tool?
