Torq Insights Drives Industry-Leading Analytics
In late 2022, Torq delivered its latest platform innovation with Torq Insights, a comprehensive reporting and analytics overlay that provides the operational data needed to consistently manage, monitor, and iteratively evolve the security automation stack, to ensure it’s providing maximum protection while driving optimal efficiency.
“Torq Insights shows me how actively my team is using the platform to improve our overall security posture and makes everyone’s lives easier and more productive,” said Phillip Tarrant, SOC Technical Manager, Compuquip. “It allows me to see my teammates’ progress with Torq by showing the value they’re getting out of it. The ‘total runs’ analytics capability is huge. It’s amazing to see that Torq is handling 80,000+ runs a week for Compuquip without a single hiccup.”
Torq Delivers on the Promise of Parallel Execution
Torq’s recently-introduced Parallel Execution capability is a significant evolution for no-code security automation that enables users to instantly create multiple branches within an automatic workflow, and handle each concurrently before seamlessly merging back into a single flow. While some SOAR platforms claim to support parallel processing, these solutions require massive engineering efforts to deploy.
Torq now offers true no-code parallel computing, to provide easier workflow design, adaptable iterating, and more powerful execution, which security teams have long asked for. Now, teams can focus on actual security responses without sacrificing precious time and resources to develop the workflows that deliver them.
New Tel Aviv Office Presence
In 2022, Torq opened a three-floor, state-of-the-art office in the heart of Tel Aviv, Israel. The office is designed to expand as Torq’s staff and operations continue scaling during the next several years. It includes a customer visitor center, comprehensive R&D facilities, and extensive collaborative environments designed to harness and channel the company’s collective energy as it solves critical customer security challenges.
