Average hours saved per reported email(hours)

Average total cost per hour($)

You can enter how much money it cost the company when a SOC team member spends time (hours) on each reported suspicious email to analyze, investigate, delete or other such actions.

An example from real life scenario. There is a SOC team who has five members and only one person is dedicated to taking these "analyze, share results with the reporter, investigate, delete phishing email" actions of each email reported by employees.

The person spends approximately one hour on each email, and depending on the salary, the person's one hour is equal to 200$ to the company, then set the "average hours = 1 hour" and set the "average total cost = 200$" in the widget settings.

The product will calculate based on this information how much money and time is saved by using the Incident Responder based on the each reported email to the product.

Use Cases

SOAR Integration

In case the end user reports an email, the relevant email is analyzed by the services with which the Incident Responder product is integrated. If the analysis result appears to be malicious, the institution's SOC team will apply additional measures such as using antivirus, firewall, EDR, proxy etc. to target this malicious email. This manual process will take a lot of time and will delay the intervention to the incident in a timely manner.

If the email reported to the platform is determined to be phishing or malicious after analysis, your current SOAR solution can obtain this detail from the platform via API and automatically perform the necessary actions on your solutions such as EDR, Proxy, and Firewall. In this way, the process will be manageable due to the quick action taken. API usage details are explained in detail in this document.
