- Torq Socrates employs a cutting-edge approach called Reason Act Large Language Models, blending AI-based reasoning with continually updated actionable methodologies under the hood.
- Torq’s human-in-the-loop automation ensures that important actions, like quarantining an executive’s laptop or blocking network portions, require human permission.
Torq Ltd., a no-code automation platform company, launches Torq Socrates, an AI-driven Tier-1 analysis agent poised to revolutionize security operations.
Empowered by AI, Torq Socrates hyper-automates critical security operations, including alert triage, incident investigation and contextual data enrichment, and escalation and response. This service combines intelligence signals from a company’s security ecosystems, allowing for autonomous remediation. It continuously learns and evolves through the accumulation and analysis of security events.
The newly introduced service promises “dramatic” efficiencies and improved incident response accuracy, addressing critical challenges security analysts face, like alert fatigue, reduced visibility, false positives, and job burnout.
Torq Socrates employs a cutting-edge approach called Reason Act Large Language Models, blending AI-based reasoning with continually updated actionable methodologies under the hood. Unlike conventional AI systems, this service is tailored to analyze and comprehend an organization’s specific security operations center playbooks, seamlessly integrating as a vital extension of the existing SOC teams. Operating within existing processes, the AI Agent learns and evolves while accumulating and analyzing security events, resulting in enhanced efficiencies and improved incident response accuracy.
Torq emphasizes its exceptional capability to integrate with current security tools seamlessly distinguishes Torq Socrates from other security platforms. Through the power of Torq workflows, Socrates consolidates data from various sources, offering extensive event analysis and executing robust threat containment and remediation strategies. It intelligently prioritizes potential threats, enabling analysts to concentrate on the most critical security incidents.
To address concerns regarding safe AI adoption, Torq Socrates guarantees that sensitive decisions are entirely under human control. Torq’s human-in-the-loop automation ensures critical actions require human approval, such as quarantining an executive’s laptop or blocking network segments.
Doing so ensures responsible AI implementation and grants organizations detailed audits of each action taken, promoting flexibility and transparency. Co-founder and Chief Executive Ofer Smadari expressed ahead of the product’s release, “Based on its capabilities, I anticipate 90% of Tier-1 and Tier-2 tickets will be resolved autonomously going forward. This represents a complete shift in how the industry thinks about SecOps. It goes far past the typical AI augmentation approach by enabling SecOps to replace significant parts of its Tier-1 and Tier-2 response approach with AI, enabling security professionals to focus on big-picture strategic impacts and outcomes.”
In December, Torq made headlines with the launch of Torq Insights, a cutting-edge overlay for security stack management. Insights offer comprehensive reporting and analytics, delivering operational data essential for efficient management, monitoring, and evolution of the security automation stack.
