  • Hyperautomation is a strategic approach that integrates different tools and technologies to automate business and IT processes.
  • Hyperautomation in cybersecurity involves orchestrated use of multiple technologies like AI, machine learning, RPA, and more to automate and improve processes.

Hyperautomation, a term coined by Gartner, is transforming the cybersecurity landscape by offering a more advanced and comprehensive approach to process automation. It involves the use of various technologies like AI, machine learning, RPA, and more to automate business and IT processes. While traditional automation focuses on specific tasks or processes, hyperautomation takes a holistic, end-to-end approach to automating complex workflows, enabling intelligent decision-making, scalability, flexibility, and continuous improvement. Smart SOAR platforms like D3 Security’s Smart SOAR provide a foundation for hyperautomation in cybersecurity, offering benefits such as consistent response, automated triage and escalation, smarter incident response, automated threat hunting, and compliance checks. As organizations embrace hyperautomation, they can expect operational cost savings and streamlined security incident response across different security tools and technologies.
