Swimlane augments its automated security platform with RSA Archer suite interoperability

Swimlane continues to expand the reach of its automated incident response and security orchestration platform to global enterprise IT organizations

DENVER, Colo. - (December 21, 2017,PRNewswire) – Swimlane, a leader in security automation and orchestration (SAO), has announced interoperability with the RSA Archer® Suite. Together, Swimlane and RSA can better help customers quickly and efficiently track and report on GRC-related activity without increasing the workload on security operations staff. The interoperability also streamlines security operations through a more centralized approach to automated incident response and security orchestration.

“Swimlane is committed to improving cybersecurity threat response capabilities and lowering incident response times by creating interoperability with the RSA Archer® Suite” said Cody Cornell, CEO and co-founder of Swimlane. “The partnership between RSA and Swimlane will help centralize GRC activities and reporting across all platforms. By automating the workflow and response, Swimlane will help RSA Archer® customers respond faster and more consistently to compliance-mandated incident response processes.”

As the volume of cyberattacks continues to rise, security administrators struggle to keep pace while manually performing repetitive and time-consuming tasks to track, mitigate and resolve security events across multiple platforms. Research by the Ponemon Institute finds that the average security operations team receives 17,000 alerts every week, but is only able to investigate 29 percent of them. And the Global Information Security Workforce Study predicts that the global shortage of cybersecurity professionals will reach 1.8 million by 2022.

Swimlane helps organizations get the most out of existing resources by automating time-intensive, manual processes and operational workflows in real time. An API-first architecture, extensive out-of-the-box integrations and prepackaged templates are designed to allow organizations to quickly enable orchestration across their entire security infrastructure. Swimlane aims to deliver powerful analytics, real-time dashboards and key performance reporting to maximize the incident response capabilities of over-burdened and understaffed security operations.

The RSA Archer® Suite supports business-level management of enterprise governance, risk and compliance (GRC). The RSA Archer Suite is designed to empower business users to tailor applications to meet their business requirements, without the need for coding or development skills. The RSA Archer Suite breadth, depth, adaptability and proven track record of delivering strategic value to customers has won over some of the most demanding Fortune 500 companies. These businesses have seized the power of the RSA Archer platform to make RSA Archer solutions their own, modeling additional business processes in a fraction of the time it would take to develop traditional custom applications.

The RSA Ready certified interoperability between Swimlane and the RSA Archer® Suite helps deliver the visibility and control needed to combat advanced attacks and meet compliance requirements faster and more efficiently. This is done via integrated automation and orchestration that aligns GRC-specific activities with broader incident response processes. Swimlane can retrieve GRC specific incident response data directly from RSA Archer® to update ongoing cases. It can also update records within RSA Archer® to ensure that compliance-related security activities are tracked and mapped to required regulations for future auditing and reporting.
