Swimlane integrates its automated security platform with HPE Security Arcsight ESM

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

DENVER, Colo. - (Jan. 24, 2017, PRNewswire) – Swimlane, a leader in automated incident response and security orchestration, has announced an integration with HPE Security ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager (ESM), HPE’s comprehensive security information and event management solution that identifies and prioritizes threats in real time. Swimlane’s integration with HPE Security ArcSight ESM will help customers quickly identify and respond to a greater number of cyber threats without increasing the workload on security operations staff. It also helps streamline security operations through a more centralized approach to security orchestration and automated incident response.

“Swimlane is committed to increasing the speed of cybersecurity threat response times by integrating with world-class solutions like HPE Security ArcSight ESM,” said Cody Cornell, CEO and co-founder of Swimlane. “Swimlane’s integration with ArcSight will provide highly automated responses and facilitate interoperability with other platforms. By automating the workflow and response, Swimlane will help ArcSight customers respond faster and more consistently to a greater number of threats.”

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. Recent research by the Ponemon Institute found that the average security operations team receives 17,000 malware alerts every week, but is only able to investigate 29 percent of them. According to a 2015 analysis of Bureau of Labor statistics by the Peninsula Press, there are currently over 209,000 unfilled cybersecurity positions in the U.S. alone.

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 allow organizations to quickly enable orchestration across their entire security infrastructure. Swimlane delivers powerful analytics, real-time dashboards and key performance reporting to maximize the incident response capabilities of over-burdened and understaffed security operations.

The integration with Swimlane will allow HPE ArcSight ESM customers to automatically initiate incident response workflows in response to any alarm. Customers will also have the option of manually initiating workflows through a simple right click within the ArcSight ESM console. Importing security event data from ArcSight into Swimlane will deliver consolidated event details from multiple platforms for rapid investigation and alarm triage. This will ensure faster incident response and a greater return on investment from the entire security infrastructure.
