SOAR leader honored amongst industry-leading cybersecurity products and services

DENVER — (July 26, 2019) — Swimlane, a leader in security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR), has been named a finalist for the inaugural Black Unicorn Awards, which will be awarded at Black Hat 2019. Cyber Defense Magazine has tapped Swimlane as one of 30 cybersecurity companies with the potential to reach a $1 billion market value as determined by private or public investment.

"It's exciting to see Swimlane making it into the finalist round among other cybersecurity industry leaders in the first Black Unicorn awards," said judges Robert Herjavec of the Herjavec Group, David DeWalt of NightDragon Security and Gary Miliefsky of Cyber Defense Media Group.

“We are thrilled to be selected as a finalist for the Black Unicorn Awards of 2019. We have always been committed to empowering security professionals and meeting the global need for effective cybersecurity solutions, and we are honored that our company is being recognized as a major player in the space,” said Cody Cornell, CEO of Swimlane.

Swimlane recently raised $23 million of Series B funding, which came as a result of its significant growth in the SOAR marketplace.
