SOC orchestration can be classified as an approach to connecting a variety of security tools. These tools are then integrated into a disparate security system. It is the connection layer that streamlines and distributes security processes and powers security automation. SOC teams usually have dozens of security tools at their disposal for the purpose of prevention, detection, and remediation of threats, but these technologies typically aren’t coordinated through integration. This disjointed ecosystem of mechanisms and procedures forces SOC teams to manually go on a digital goose chase through multiple systems to effectively complete their tasks every day.

The result is an elevated security liability because of the probability of missed alerts, longer dwell times from slow response, as well as lower morale and higher staff turnover. Security orchestration tackles and solves these issues, actualizing harmony between processes and technologies by integrating a wide array of security operation instruments and normalizing related processes so most regular security operations tasks can be completed from a single console
