Incident Response

Continuous, automated validation of SIEM and​ SOAR efficacy –
IR preparation acceleration ​


SOC and SIEM Validation​

Security Operations Centers are using a variety of security solutions and are facing challenges detecting
and responding to all events. Even with SIEM, the aggregated data must be analyzed in context to
prioritize mitigation efforts. Moreover, some events go undetected despite the SIEM. ​

IR Optimization​

SOAR playbooks and Incident Response routines need to be flexible to adapt to emerging threats. They
also need to be customized to specific environments. Simulating tabletop exercises is a necessary
practice to refine those playbooks and routines. Simulated attacks are an essential part of a preemptive
cybersecurity strategy. ​

Whether optimizing SIEM operations or running tabletop exercises, Cymulate provides a scalable
solution for testing and tuning the efficacy of security controls, validating processes, and identifying gaps.


SIEM, SOC & IR Optimization Challenges​

Challenges for Security Operations and ​Incident Response Teams​

Insufficient SOC Visibility

Insufficient SOC Visibility

SOC teams lack data the data required to ensure their security tools are accurately detecting attacks

Alert Fatigue Risk

Alert Fatigue Risk

The large number of security controls, some inadequately configured, increase the number of false positives, leading to alert fatigue​

Continuous IR Adaptation

Continuous IR Adaptation

A constantly evolving threat landscape and continual deployments require frequent reconfigurations and IR playbook updates​

Inefficient SIEM Configuration

Inefficient SIEM Configuration

Configuring a SIEM is complex, and findings often lack context for prioritizing incident response

Cymulate for SIEM, SOC
and IR Optimization​

Production-safe attack simulations assess the efficacy of the SIEM,
SOC and overall detection and response. Organizations use
Cymulate platform to validate their processes and identify security
gaps. The ability to prioritize and remediate with context, results in
improved security and a reduced number of false alerts. ​

In addition, the platform can be leveraged for running up-to-date
incident response tabletop exercises at will. With minimal to no
interference with daily operations, security teams can continuously
tune their playbooks. ​
