Swimlane named a “breakout vendor” in security automation and orchestration

Company recognized for software-defined security methods to help customers speed decisions and automate remediation actions by prominent analyst firm

DENVER, Colo. - (April 26, 2017, PRNewswire)Swimlane, a leader in automated incident response and security orchestration, has been named a breakout vendor by Forrester Research in its April 2017 Breakout Vendors: Security Automation and Orchestration (SAO). According to the Forrester report, authored by Joseph Blankenship, “Security and risk (S&R) professionals are under increasing strain as they struggle to keep pace with cyberthreats, manage a complex technology environment, and hire experienced staff.”

Forrester defines SAO as “technology products that provide automated, coordinated, and policy-based action of security processes across multiple technologies, making security operations faster, less error-prone, and more efficient.” According to Forrester, “The ability to integrate with clients’ existing security infrastructure is key for the adoption of SAO. Swimlane integrates with multiple security technologies by using an API-first architecture that enables clients to create their own integrations that expand beyond those included with the platform.”

“I believe that this report helps validate Swimlane’s status as a leader and innovator in the security automation and orchestration market,” said Swimlane Co-Founder and CEO Cody Cornell. “We agree with Forrester that SAO will see widespread adoption over the next 24 months. As organizations struggle with alert fatigue, security technology proliferation and staffing shortages, they are increasingly aware of the value that automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks while responding to threats across multiple platforms can bring to their security operations.”

Swimlane helps organizations maximize existing resources by automating time-intensive, manual processes and operational workflows across the security infrastructure in real-time. Its API-first architecture provides the extensive out-of-the-box integrations, pre-packaged workflows and playbooks organizations need to quickly orchestrate and manage all alerts throughout the entire security infrastructure. Swimlane provides immediate value through powerful analytics, real-time dashboards and key performance metrics to maximize the incident response capabilities of over-burdened and understaffed IT security operations teams.
