Analyst Commentary: Syncurity has some interesting options for increasing SOC analyst productivity through playbook automation, SANS' Pescatore says.

There are several others vying for attention in this sector, Lindstrom notes, pointing to Cybric, Cybersponse, IBM/Resilient, FireEye/Invotas, ServiceNow, and SIEMplify, as examples.

'There's a lot of really good innovation here,' ESG's Oltsik says. 'The question remains where does that technology live? Part of the SIEM, or is it stand-alone, or rolled into [something like] ServiceNow? The market hasn't decided yet.'

Story -> Potentially Valuable; Site -> Problematic Viewing and Printing
This topic and story is presented as a white paper.  To read the story, we must click the next arrow 13 times to see all 14 pages.  This is time consuming as the site loads so many advertisements.  There is no simple way to print the story, as the print function show only 1 of 14, 2 of 14, etc.  This may be by design, but I find it a serious barrier and will seek other sources for this material.
