Swimlane integrates its automated security platform with Trend Micro Deep Discovery

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

DENVER, Colo. - (March, 14, 2017,PRNewswire) – Swimlane, a leader in automated incident response and security orchestration, has announced an integration with Trend Micro Deep Discovery. Together, Swimlane and Trend Micro will help customers quickly identify and respond to targeted attacks and ransomware faster, without increasing the workload on security operations staff. It also helps streamline 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 integrating with world-class solutions like Trend Micro Deep Discovery,” said Cody Cornell, CEO and co-founder of Swimlane. “Trend Micro and Swimlane will provide highly automated responses and facilitate interoperability with other platforms. By automating the workflow and response, Swimlane will help Trend Micro customers respond faster and more consistently to a greater number of targeted attacks and ransomware.”

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 alerts every week, but is only able to investigate 29 percent of them. According to a 2015 analysis of Bureau of Labor statistics reported by the Peninsula Press, there are currently more than 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 Trend Micro customers to automatically initiate incident response workflows in response to any alarm. Customers will also have the option of either manually or automatically launching a toolkit to inspect and clean the targeted device. Importing attack data 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.
