Power and Flexibility: Two Major Benefits of Low-Code Security Automation


Low-code security automation is an ideal solution for businesses that need to respond quickly, innovatively, and effectively to today’s complex challenges. Organizations continue to face more sophisticated and targeted threats than ever. In the face of these new threats, organizations must adopt a proactive security posture – low-code security automation makes this possible without the need to hire more people.

The power and flexibility of low-code enables SOC teams, who may not have extensive experience or bandwidth for complex python scripting, to build powerful automated workflows quickly and easily. This reduces wait time by allowing everyone on your team, not just technical experts, to create response processes that align with your unique business processes.

Powerfully Built Features

The low-code platform’s extensive automation engine is what makes it easy to build complex applications. It allows you to define your application logic in terms of rules, where each rule uses one or more triggers and actions to act automatically when an event occurs.

Dynamic Use Cases. Low-code security automation provides the power and flexibility to handle a wide range of use cases within the SOC, such as incident response, SIEM alert triage, and more. It is also powerful enough to extend beyond SOC with use cases for fraudemployee offshoring and mobile phishing.

Robust case management. In addition to providing visibility into assets, devices, and users across all systems in an organization, low-code technology also acts as a system of record for security. Built-in workflow features are designed to streamline processes and reduce manual effort associated with handling incidents or investigations, allowing you to focus on complex threats that require more human logic.

Flexibility that adapts to you

Low-code security automation gives you the freedom to create the exact solution you need. You can build any type of application in the cloud or on-premises, or deploy it across multiple clouds and data centers.

Endless integrations. Security teams need an automation platform that can adapt to existing security processes, not the other way around. This is why low-code platforms are the most flexible option on the market today. With API-first architecture, these solutions can be integrated with anything to automate any security workflow across your organization.

Scalable cloud security. Cloud-scale security automation is built for the future. It’s a platform that can adapt to the changing needs of security teams and is flexible enough to support new regulations or compliance requirements. The flexibility of cloud security means there’s no infrastructure overhead to manage, easy upgrades, and faster setup times.

Combined to unite the disconnected

There are many reasons security managers choose low-code security automation to help them stay ahead of threats rather than just reacting after they occur. The power and flexibility of low-code platforms help address the challenge of disjointed security tools by providing features such as:

Sophisticated dashboards. Visualized and customizable dashboards allow everyone in your organization, regardless of technical skill level, to monitor key security measures and threats in real time. Low-code dashboards quickly pull data across the technology stack so you can make informed decisions when it matters most.

Automated reports. Schedule reports to better understand the performance, capacity, and value of your organization’s SOC. The power and flexibility of low-code security automation reporting capabilities are hard to find in other tools, like no-code automation.

The main advantage of low-code platforms is undoubtedly their power and flexibility. Old full-code SOAR platforms are powerful but lack flexibility. No-code automation platforms promise accessibility but lack the adaptability and strength that most teams need. Managers and security teams need an automation platform that adapts to ever-changing needs, while also becoming a system of record for security. That’s the power of low code – and therein lies its true value.
