Swimlane automated security operations platform wins 2016 MongoDB Innovation Award

DENVER, CO. - (June 29, 2016,PRNewswire) – Swimlane, a developer of cybersecurity automation solutions, has won the 2016 MongoDB Innovation Award in the “Securing the Enterprise Category.”

The awards, which will be presented at MongoDB World 2016, June 28-29, 2016 at the New York Hilton, recognize companies who are using MongoDB to deliver innovative applications that are transforming businesses, and enabling organizations to actualize trends like Big Data and the Internet of Things, and attain impressive scale and agility.

MongoDB is a 21st century database system made for modern applications. It is the same technology used by major websites and mobile apps such as The New York Times, eBay, Craigslist, and BuzzFeed. MongoDB’s seamless data storage engine made it a great fit for Swimlane’s architecture.

Swimlane is an automated security operations platform that enables organizations to automate their response to cybersecurity threats. Swimlane is used by the Fortune 500, U.S. Federal Government and Managed Services Providers, helping them tackle the challenges of ever increasing number cybersecurity attacks, alert fatigue and the vast shortages of qualified cybersecurity professionals.

“MongoDB’s aggregation engine allowed us to create sophisticated statistics on our data being collected with very high performance. It allows us to cluster and deploy large scale infrastructure for data management at a fraction of the price,” said Swimlane Chief Architect Austin McDaniel.

“We have quite a bit of flexibility with MongoDB, all while affording us scalability and high availability. MongoDB’s flexible schema has allowed us to iterate much more rapidly than we could have with other products. At the same time, we can easily drive powerful ad-hoc reporting across our data with MongoDB’s aggregation framework,” said Brant Wheeler Lead API Engineer.

The annual MongoDB Innovation Awards recognize organizations and individuals that are creating groundbreaking applications. These projects represent the best and most innovative work in the industry over the last year, according to Dev Ittycheria, President & CEO, MongoDB.
