Labor intensive security solutions like signature-based heuristics, machine learning and threat hunting all necessitate a large SOC operation to monitor and manage. Machine learning tools don’t minimize this demand on skilled human expertise, as a large team of cyber researchers is needed to train the ML model and repeatedly place heuristics on new malware - a significant expense that is built into the cost of the product.
