By: Mike ChappleAdjunct Research Advisor

Abstract

This IDC Perspective discusses the role that automation can play in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of an organization's cybersecurity program. It includes eight suggestions of areas where technology leaders can immediately achieve gains through security automation and discusses strategies for identifying areas of future potential within an organization. It also presents 2018 IDC data that illustrates and supports the need for automation in support of digital transformation.

"Automation plays an increasingly important role in cybersecurity programs," said Mike Chapple, adjunct research analyst at IDC's IT Executive Programs. "Automation serves as a force multiplier by taking routine tasks off the plate of the cybersecurity team and allowing specialists to focus their effort on adding higher-level value to the organization."
