Next Generation SOC Analyst Tools: Drones and Robots with Computer Image

Security operation center (SOC) analysts are overburdened, but there are technologies like AI-enabled robotics that are poised to radically improve the efficiencies of security operations.

This is a pressing need. More than half of surveyed SOC analysts report that they are not properly equipped to deal with new and emerging threats or have the necessary tools to appropriately respond. This can leave a gaping hole in an organization's ability to manage risk and ensure business continuity.

Although automated technologies now exist, manual processes are commonplace and exacerbate the issue, placing even more of a burden on the analysts. Nearly 75% of SOC analysts spend hours, even days, manually investigating a single threat when edge AI deployed on a robotic device can cut that time by 90%. While investing many resources into a single threat, a third of prioritized alerts fail to be investigated as additional alerts are received, while another third of alerts are false positives.

New technologies like security drones, robots, advanced sensors, and computer vision are now revolutionizing the way that security intelligence is automatically gathered, displayed, and prioritized. The leveraging of these technologies and their further integration into security operations will re-shape traditional observe and report positions while increasing demand for highly-trained SOC analysts. Entirely new proactive workflows will be created to increase both security and efficiency for organizations.

In this roundtable, experts in the field will be discussing the role technology and AI will have in creating the Security Workforce of the Future
