Automation Plays a Critical Role in Cybersecurity

Automation Plays a Critical Role in Cybersecurity

Automation is sometimes misconceived as a troublesome or unreliable addition to business. It’s not about replacing people with machines, it’s about getting more done with the people you have. Having an attitude that doubts technology and believes nothing can replace human processing can quickly put you at a disadvantage compared to your competitors.

The global cost of cybercrime is on the rise, and is now estimated to be near $600 billion total. Cyberattacks are becoming more frequent which means your cybersecurity needs to be more vigilant. Automation is what is causing these frequent attacks, and the only way to combat this is to fight fire with fire. 

There are a few ways automation does just that. 

Security Automation Has Become Intelligent

Data needs to be processed and analyzed in order to become usable information. Often times, the rate in which data needs to be processed simply cannot be achieved manually. This inability to meet required data processing rates can leave your business vulnerable. 

Look at it this way. Every device on your network, from your workstations, to your servers, to your firewall, your antivirus, and everything else that handles cybersecurity, all generate logs of what goes through them. These logs can help you determine problems and threats on the network, but there tends to be so much data in the logs to go through that a single person can’t be thorough enough to catch everything.

Automation can utilize machine learning and spot anomalies and only report the important things back to IT. This system can also be set up to automatically isolate a device from the rest of the network as soon as a potential problem is detected, to prevent it from spreading.

Automation processes data at a rate which cannot be matched by employees. More so, automation has the ability to learn and adapt. This makes the accuracy in which it processes data unsurpassable.

Where does automation provide the greatest value in advancing your business’ cybersecurity? 

Data-Supported Interfaces

Without data organization or processing, drawing conclusions or making predictions is a difficult task. Reading and comprehending the data that has been organized by automation ensures you will catch threats more effectively. 

A Stronger Defense Than Offence

Cybersecurity is almost like a game of football. However, if your defense fails the cybercriminal doesn’t get a point on the scoreboard. Instead, they receive all of your data, and your business will experience devastating effects. Cybersecurity relies on defending against threats before they make it far enough down the field. Automation utilizes machine learning and rapid processing rates to protect your business from threats you otherwise never would have seen coming. 

Detecting Threats

When automation is utilized, your business will be able to detect faults in your cybersecurity. Even if your IT staff is on site for eight hours a day, five days a week, if a fault is detected, time is of the essence. You don’t want your business’ data being served on a silver platter over the weekend if a fault is detected and nobody is available to react to the insecurity.
