Enabling Automation in Security Operations - Assessing Automation Potential of Products and Services White Paper


As organizations automate operational security processes, they are discovering that not all products and services support these initiatives. The main issue is that the functionality and information available via the Application Programming Interface (API) may be different than what they have access to via the user interface. It is important to assess products and services, those already deployed as well as those under consideration, to determine if they have limited automation potential. This assessment requires more detail than just making sure there is an API and is not easily discernable from a typical vendor demonstration.
