Automate and orchestrate the security operations center

Empower security teams to work smarter, boost productivity and respond faster by automating and orchestrating security operations processes.



Alert fatigue. Slow investigations. Slow response.

SOCs are short-staffed. Analysts are drowning in security alerts — too many to fully investigate and resolve each day. And mean time to detect, investigate, triage and address threats is too slow.


Empower your SOC with automation

Work smarter, not harder

Automate your manual security tasks to streamline your team and processes.

From overwhelmed to in-control

Stop being reactive, and use automation to create a proactive security operations team.

Security at machine speed

Threats move fast. Move faster with automated investigation and response.


From 30 minutes to 30 seconds

Address threats in seconds — not minutes or hours. Lower your mean time to respond (MTTR) to threats using playbooks that automate security tasks across a multitude of tools at machine speed.

Work that used to take 30 minutes manually now takes only 30 seconds with automation in Splunk SOAR.

Eliminate grunt work

Work more effectively. With Splunk SOAR, automate repetitive security tasks to increase analyst productivity and efficiency, save time and free up your team to focus on the tasks that matter most for your organization.


Force multiply your team

Orchestrate and automate repetitive tasks, investigation and response so your security team can maximize efficiency and productivity and do more with the people you already have. Make a team of three feel like a team of 10.

With Splunk SOAR, we achieved the equivalent workload of 10 full-time employees, completed by just a small team of analysts, within the first 6 months of the year.

Learn more about SOC automation

Security operations center (SOC) automation is the process of automating manual security tasks associated with investigation and response in order to increase the speed of security operations in a SOC. Security processes that were once performed manually can be completely automated end-to-end to help unburden analysts, reduce grunt work, and reduce MTTR (mean time to respond). Typically referred to as SOAR (security orchestration, automation and response) products, this technology is commonly used alongside a SIEM (security information and event management) to increase the speed of detection, investigation, triage and incident response.

Automating the SOC supports many areas, including incident management. Common SOC automation use cases include incident analysis, security investigation, incident response and emergent threat mitigation. SOAR is typically used to automate investigation and response for phishing, ransomware, endpoint malware and other incidents.
