Enrichment is the process of adding intelligence and context to security events and incidents. This measures the quantity and quality of threat intelligence sources available to each vendor’s SOAR solution.

Case management also includes automation of preliminary analysis, background triage, facilitation of collaboration between analysts, and interoperability with ticketing systems.


API Support

This measure illustrates each solution’s API options, including protocols, formats, and authentication methods supported. 


Analyst Interface

This category appraises the utility of and presentation of information within the analyst interface. The analyst interface should allow queries to be easily built and executed, extensive drill down and linking of data between screens, map and timeline views, attack and response visualizations, incident-to-artifact relationship visualization, root cause analysis, etc. 



This category describes the features that enable analysts to conduct investigations, including methods for building queries, IOC updates, ability to create custom IOCs, behavioral analysis for creating baseline profiles, ML-enhanced detection and classification of outliers, and integration with SIEM and other analytics tools. 



Automation seeks to expedite investigations, threat hunting, and responses by packaging common activities such as aspects of event correlation, case creation and maintenance, alerting and communications, threat intelligence gathering, threat intelligence updates, and generation of recommendations. We expect modern SOAR solutions to be able to remove the statistical noise and reduce false positives without human intervention, by relying on techniques like behavior analysis and machine learning.


Threat Hunting

Threat hunting is a proactive cyber defense activity. Analysts sometimes need to search for signs of intrusions or other malicious behavior that may not be already identified as IOCs. SOAR platforms support threat hunting by building flexibility that allow analysts to customize their workspace to conduct these exploratory processes. This classification rates the features available for and their extensibility for threat hunting.
