What’s Your Automation ROI?

We all know that one of the key benefits to automation is increased efficiency—you get more done with fewer resources and in a shorter amount of time. Another way to increase your efficiency is by having native abilities to track, measure, calculate, and report the benefits of the automation tool.

ROI analysis, if performed at all, is done manually through log analysis and complex spreadsheets. We want to take the lead in quantifying returns and help you easily understand the time savings, dollar savings, and true resource expansion associated with security automation and orchestration. After all, automation is awesome, but there is an added level of satisfaction when you know, with certainty, the technical and business impact that the solution is providing.
