"Up until now, what SOAR did was build engines to connect all the [security] products to do the orchestration and automation," he says. "Now we are at a stage where adding machine learning will help the SOC do a lot of sophisticated things."

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Sarel discusses:

  • Common misconceptions about SOAR;
  • SOAR's evolution and the changes in thinking needed;
  • Recommendations for security teams adopting SOAR.

Sarel is the co-founder and vice president of product at Demisto.
