Importance of Security Automation to Reap Maximum ROI from Tech Stack in 2023


Every organization needs to build a tech stack that is resilient and robust. But what is more critical – tech stack refinement or optimization? And how are leaders going to reap maximum value from it?

The tech stack is an operations asset that requires management and constant improvement.   Companies must confirm that their tech stack comprises the best suitable elements and operates at the highest attainable security level. Companies must also assess and optimize their tech stack to ensure optimal security and seamless back- and front-end operations.

Tech stack optimization ensures that the company gets the most business value. Tech architects know that aligning technical solutions with company objectives and performing security automation is crucial.

Why Focus on Security Automation of Tech Stack?

Security automation is essential because it detects, explores, and remediates cyber threats with or without the help of manual intervention, which human errors may flaw. It involves:

  • Identifying incoming threats.
  • Triaging and prioritizing alerts as they surface.
  • Responding to them on time.
Cybersecurity automation has gained increased importance due to expanding attacks on organization surfaces, a shortage of overall skill, and the rise of various kinds of cyberattacks in the past few years. But the type of security automation depends on the level of security needed for any company’s stack.

As we move to 2023, here are some expected trends in security automation and developments:

Increased Pressure to Maximize Existing Security Stack Value

The current economic climate has caused all enterprises to become more particular about their expenditures. As a result, IT and security leaders will look for modes to derive the highest value from their current tech stack rather than add more solutions. Security automation blends current security investments and leverages their potential, enabling companies to get more bang for their buck.

Security Automation’s Aggressive Foot-print to Grow More

Instead of focusing on retroactively creating workflows and techniques as per historical cyber-attacks, security automation deployments are equipped to take a predictive approach to identify and maybe even stop attacks before they occur. A part of this concerns security groups harnessing early signals of threat intelligence and building guards against them into their workflows and functions. This will lead to an entirely new framework with tremendous capacity that combines the resilience of the security stack and the most potent shielding approach to date.

Bridging the Gaps between Important Systems while Eliminating Others

The security automation ecosystem will be more open, so previously non-suitable security systems will be able to connect. Cybersecurity cannot thrive in emptiness and confusion. Applications, techniques, and tools must become seamlessly interconnected and interoperable, so unnecessary systems and workflows must go. Security automation facilitates the seamless bridging of these systems, bringing them together under one roof for complete monitoring, management, and measurement.

Leaders would prefer tech stack optimization with security automation as it will help gain more value from the investment and offer extra defense to the systems.
