Swimlane augments security orchestration, automation and response with VMRay integration

Swimlane expands its capabilities in security orchestration, automation and response by integrating with VMRay Analyzer, an industry-leading threat analysis and detection platform

DENVER, Colo. - (May 1, 2018) — Swimlane, a leader in security automation and orchestration (SAO), announced integration with VMRay, a leading provider of advanced threat analysis and detection. The integration between Swimlane and VMRay helps customers rapidly inspect and classify potentially malicious files at scale, performing deep malware analysis and automating the incident response process for faster and more efficient advanced threat protection.

“Swimlane is committed to helping overburdened security operations teams respond to more alerts faster, and with greater accuracy, by partnering with companies like VMRay,” said Cody Cornell, CEO and co-founder of Swimlane. “Integration with VMRay allows our joint customers to benefit from comprehensive dynamic threat analysis delivered via VMRay’s agentless hypervisor-based network sandbox and real-time reputation engine, while leveraging Swimlane’s security orchestration, automation and response capabilities to automate the incident response process and better protect their networks.”

“VMRay has been focused since founding on providing the most accurate, evasion-proof threat analysis, whether interactive or automated and regardless of scale. Security solutions can no longer exist in silos. Partners like Swimlane are important for us to enable our customers to easily integrate our best-in-class platform into their wider security ecosystem,” said Chad Loeven, VP of sales and marketing for VMRay.

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 2017 Cybersecurity Jobs Report predicts that the global shortage of cybersecurity professionals will result in 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2021.

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.

Integration between Swimlane and VMRay allows customers to automate as much as 90 percent of the incident response process tied to inspecting and remediating malicious files. This is done via integrated automation and orchestration that allows Swimlane to automatically submit files and MD5 hashes to VMRay for sandbox analysis. Depending on the results, specific actions can be triggered as a part of any associated playbook for automatic and immediate remediation. These results are also automatically entered into Swimlane’s dynamic case management for rapid analysis by security operations professionals.
