Avasant Analyst Insights

Practice Maturity

  • SecureWorks is transitioning its product portfolio and is focusing on SaaS-based solutions, which its CEO terms as “SOC of the future”. It introduced Red Cloak Threat Detection and Response (TDR), managed detection and response along with security operations expertise. These solutions primarily target organizations that already have internal security capabilities in place.
  • Its iSensor intrusion prevention system (IPS) leverages ML/AI to access telemetry data gathered from multiple security controls and highlight threats on real-time bases to the on-premise cybersecurity team with Secureworks Advanced Endpoint Threat Detection.
  • As customers increasingly transition to the cloud, it has partnered with Microsoft to offer its advanced detection and response capabilities to Microsoft ATP and O365 customers.
  • It also introduced its Orchestration and Automation solution, which includes open-source, digital playbooks that help automate customer-specific workflows. It not only helps enrich incident data but also automates response activities.
