How Is

UiPath automating cybersecurity operations?

State of the CIO Study 2022 reports that over 51% CIOs have commenced focussing their time and expertise on security management. It further says that over 76% CIOs think that their investment in security management will increase in the coming year. With remote working being the new normal with increasing dependency on digital solutions, there is a whole new range of cybersecurity issues that analysts and experts needs to tackle.

With this newfound security demands and urgency, professionals employ artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain and other SecOps tools to improve their security infrastructure and operations. Nonetheless, these SecOps tools alone cannot be responsible for reinforcing security or boosting it. It is where a cybersecurity engineer might involve in defining new policies and rules to strengthen the infrastructure, scan for threats, breaches, or vulnerabilities, undergo continuous security audits to track critical points in the enterprise system that can be attacked in the near future.


Tackling the queue to not miss any alerts

It is only usual for your teams to handle as many security issues that come their way. In fact, a survey states that more than one-third of IT security managers and security analysts ignore security threats when the queue is full. This is where UiPath can help you with their automation capabilities. It provides with an easy-to-use and robust security capabilities to enable complete SOAR (security orchestration automation and response).

Setting up identity controls

In most companies, IT analysts manage different user profiles, roles, and access controls. They are even responsible for managing activities related to it like adding/removing user access, user provisioning, resetting user passwords, and unlocking user accounts. UiPath and its seamless integration with identity access management (IAM) tools like Microsoft Azure AD assists in automating such activities. A UiPath Robot leverages interactive user interface and API capabilities to monitor IT service management (ITSM) tickets.

Such trigger-based robots undergo necessary actions on user identities, update the ITSM tickets, and inform users about the final solution.

The best part, you can integrate these UiPath Robots to chatbots and other platforms like Slack to provide employees with an engaging, real-time experience.

In fact, UiPath automates this entire process, in turn reducing the manual labor and energy spend by more than 15%. Moreover, the automation procedures reduced the average handling time of ITSM tickets from two hours to two minutes per ticket. Overall, this computes to a 98% decrease in the time spent on resolving tickets, which allows your team to focus on more creative and complex tasks.

UiPath even has an IT service desk chatbot integrated with Slack to help employees with a seamless experience and resolve issues in a matter of second without indulging the desk staff.

Detection and prevention of threats

Protecting and preventing against breaches is also a critical undertaking for security professionals. In fact, an IBM study states that organisations who have implemented a full-scale security automation strategy experienced an average breach cost of $2.9 million. On the contrary, organisations that did not put any such strategy in place experienced $6.71 million in breaches, double the initial cost.

UiPath enforces security processes such as endpoint detection and response (EDR), extended detection and response (XDR), security information and event management (SIEM), and other activities to prevent threats and automate security actions. As soon as the UiPath Robot detects a breach or a compromise in the enterprise system, these security tools initiate actions like activating firewalls or blocking IP addresses in the system. Similarly, a UiPath Robot can also perform firewall rules assessment using its UI and API capabilities to disable or delete firewalls.

Handling email phishing with UiPath Robots

UiPath Robots can check email threads for issues or threats and trigger remediation actions. These robots can automate endpoint protection protocols, vulnerability assessment, potential threat identification, and detection controls. All these activities combined prevent brute attacks, blocking more than 20,000 issues with UiPath automation.

Incident responses

Despite popular opinion, even the best of the security automation tools cannot fool-proof your enterprise system against attacks. Security incidents still occur every now and then and the only way your team can handle it is via incident response management. Incident responses are all about implementing the right strategy at the right time. In fact, an IBM study validates this by saying that organisations that had an incident response team on the ready experienced an average breach cost of $3.25 million while those that did not place any such strategy into place experienced an average cost of $5.71 million.

That said, UiPath allows you to automate the following incident response actions:

  • Delete malware infected files or quarantine them
  • Block URL access outside perimeter
  • Quarantine a device from the network
  • Retrieve information about compromised users
  • Search for files with a particular access
  • Look up for IP addresses

Once you have automated these activities, you can standardise incident response process and accelerate the remediation action.

Performing audit and checking for compliances

It is imperative for organisations to stay compliant and relevant in the market. To attain the same, they need to follow several industry standards like SOX, HIPAA, and GDPR and run audits for the same. Once undertaken, these audits supply you with evidence that you need to analyse the current security excellence of your systems. Such assessments help with information mapping, control testing, and other general IT control. Your team can automate these activities to ensure that stringent security protocols are being followed while focussing on more cognitive tasks.

UiPath Robots assist with compliance monitoring and management and preventing failures while alerting managers about the ongoing security issues. UiPath automatically notifies you about any compliance violation and also provides the stakeholders with necessary information they need to prevent any breach from happening. Moreover, UiPath can help you with generation of comprehensive reports and sending out to the respective parties without having to do this process manually. As per UiPath, their robot is currently being used for SOX compliance testing and evidence collection. Moreover, they are also assessing the completeness, accuracy, and existence of more than 1000 invoices in their system.

Pre-built packages for security operations automation

Other than the UI and API capabilities of UiPath, it also consists of several pre-built activity packs and workflow packages that empower organisations to kickstart their security operations automation process. Moreover, UiPath offers strategic partnerships with major security platforms, the latter being natively integrated to enable endpoint detection and end-to-end security automation.
