Hexadite Named a “Breakout Vendor” in Security Automation and Orchestration (SAO) by Independent Research Firm

Today, we’re proud to announce that Hexadite has been named a Breakout Vendor by Forrester, one of the most influential research and advisory firms in the world, in a recent report titled Breakout Vendors: Security Automation and Orchestration (SAO).

Organizations are realizing that manual approaches to cybersecurity are no longer sustainable and that technology is mature enough to ease the burden they’ve been shouldering. Being named a Breakout Vendor by Forrester – in an area where the firm’s predicting widespread adoption – is an honor that we consider to be validation for our approach. By automating the entire incident response cycle from alert to investigation and remediation, Hexadite AIRS is in a unique position to help security teams move beyond simply reacting to threats.

Influential Firm Predicts SAO Will Gain Widespread Adoption In 24 Months

The report, authored by Joseph Blankenship with Stephanie Balaouras, Bill Barringham, and Rachel Birrell, defines Security Automation and Orchestration as

“technology products that provide automated, coordinated, and policy-based action of security processes across multiple technologies, making security operations faster, less error-prone, and more efficient.”

By giving security teams a much-needed helping hand, the report goes on to state that SAO tools:

  • Act as security middleware
  • Inform and educate analysts
  • Enable automation without the need for coding skills
  • Enable automated response

Hexadite AIRS uses artificial intelligence to investigate every alert that an organization’s existing security solutions create, and can take remediation actions when it verifies a threat. It’s the only security automation solution capable of automatically investigating alerts and remediating threats without human intervention or through a semi-automated mode that requires analyst approval. Its ability to be quickly deployed and automatically start investigating and remediating threats provides immediate return on investment (ROI), while still giving organizations the ability to customize actions without requiring any coding skills.

As Forrester states in its report:

Hexadite seeks to speed the threat detection, investigation, and remediation process with automation and a combination of third-party integrations and artificial intelligence. The solution offers customization features that allow clients to change the solution to fit their environment.
