by | Aug 30, 2023 | Integrated Solutions, RidgeBot

As technology evolves, so do the tactics of cybercriminals. Today, businesses face an ever-growing array of threats that can compromise their valuable assets, and the need for robust cybersecurity solutions is more critical than ever. Fortinet and Ridge Security‘s integrated solution bridges the gap between automated security testing and efficient threat response. By combining the capabilities of FortiSOAR and RidgeBot, organizations can automate penetration testing, asset profiling, and security validation to enhance their overall security posture.

The partnership between Fortinet and Ridge Security brings together the best of both worlds. FortiSOAR, a powerful security orchestration, automation, and response platform, simplifies SecOps workflows by centralizing and automating tasks. RidgeBot, on the other hand, is an intelligent software bot that conducts continuous penetration testing and vulnerability validation. This integration equips organizations with the tools they need to automate their defenses and enhance their ability to respond swiftly to threats.

By integrating RidgeBot with FortiSOAR, organizations reap the following benefits:

  • Cost-effective Security: Automated penetration testing and validation reduce reliance on manual processes, making security testing more efficient and affordable.
  • Informed Decision-Making: The integration provides high-fidelity threat intelligence that empowers SecOps teams to make informed decisions in response to complex threats.
  • Enhanced FortiSOAR Capabilities: RidgeBot enriches FortiSOAR by bringing security validation, asset profiling, and attack surface identification into the fold, creating a holistic defense strategy.
  • Coordinated Defense: By consolidating threat intelligence and integrating existing security infrastructure, organizations can implement a more coordinated defense strategy.
  • Streamlined Processes: The integration optimizes SecOps workflows, processes, and strategies by centralizing information and actions within a single interface.

One practical application of this integration is automating penetration and exploitation tasks. By incorporating RidgeBot tasks into FortiSOAR playbooks through the RidgeBot Connector, SecOps teams can seamlessly manage, execute, and analyze automated security tests. The results of these tests feed into FortiSOAR, enabling teams to plan and execute appropriate actions effectively.

By combining the strengths of automated penetration testing with robust security orchestration and response capabilities, organizations can strengthen their defenses and respond more effectively to emerging threats. In today’s fast-paced threat landscape, such integrations are vital for safeguarding sensitive data and ensuring business continuity.
