Swimlane named finalist in Info Security Products Guide’s 11th Annual 2015 Global Excellence Awards

Automated incident response company tops list with industry powerhouses and leading innovators

TEMPE, Ariz. - (March 4, 2015,PRNewswire) — Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Swimlane a finalist for the 11th Annual 2015 Global Excellence Awards in the New Products category. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

Swimlane centralizes an organization’s security alerts, alarms and incidents to automate resolution and deliver a better ROI on current and future security investments. Using software-defined security (SDSec) methods and security orchestration, Swimlane reduces manual effort by automatically responding to alerts, gathering related threat intelligence and automating the implementation of security controls, which also aides in protecting the organization from future attacks.

Swimlane Co-Founders CEO Cody Cornell and COO Brian Kafenbaum, information security consultants to some of the world’s largest companies and government organizations, created Swimlane from their cybersecurity consulting and services firm, Phoenix Data Security. The software platform was developed to fill a market gap for a solution that would significantly reduce the expense and time associated with the manual effort of managing the rapidly growing number of security activities that is required of a modern Security Operations Center (SOC).

“Swimlane was founded on the ideal of closing the critical loop when it comes to security threats to an organization,” says Swimlane CEO Cody Cornell. “Not paying attention to incident response leaves a company vulnerable regardless of how many monitoring safeguards are in place. We are honored to be selected as a finalist and look forward to continuing to working with businesses on improving their security operations automation.”
