BOULDER, CO. May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/– Swimlane, a developer of cybersecurity automation solutions, today announced that it has been named to Gartner’s list of “Cool Vendors 2016” in the category of Security Infrastructure Protection.
Swimlane centralizes an organization’s security alerts, alarms and incidents to automate resolution and deliver a better ROI on current and future security investments. Using an automated workflow engine and security orchestration, Swimlane reduces manual effort by automatically responding to alerts, gathering related threat intelligence and automating the implementation of security controls.
Gartner annually recognizes Cool Vendors in key technology areas through a series of research reports that evaluate their innovative approaches to solving persistent customer challenges. Gartner’s definition of a Cool Vendor is a small company offering a technology or service that is innovative, impactful and intriguing.
“We believe being selected as a Gartner Cool Vendor is further validation that we’re on the right track to innovate and fill a market void for streamlining and automating security operations,” said Cody Cornell, co-founder of Swimlane. “While enterprises have spent a lot of resources and money on threat detection, not a lot of attention has been paid to improving the operational performance through automating security response. With automation, enterprises as well as managed security service providers can become more effective in their ability to significantly reduce process execution time; lower operating costs; improve incident response capabilities; and deliver more robust security operations services to the enterprise or customers.”
“In the face of increasing threats, Gartner clients struggle to run their security programs, automate processes in repeatable ways and contend with the acute labor shortage of qualified security professionals,” said Craig Lawson, Research VP at Gartner.
