SOCless is a serverless framework built to help security teams easily automate their incident response and operations processes.


SOCless uses the AWS Step Functions and AWS Lambda services to execute user-defined workflows. The workflows, called Playbooks, are defined as JSON objects and triggered by real-time alerts from data sources or AWS CloudWatch schedules.
