Add a Step to Create Cases and Alerts

LogicHub provides a case management feature that enables a security team to collaborate, investigate, and escalate incidents with detailed information and logs. The case management feature is integrated with playbooks. This allows you to automate the creation of cases and alerts. And with the advanced features that LogicHub playbooks provide, the number of false positives can be kept low.
