Swimlane adds codified best-practices and real-time collaboration built for security teams to track, manage and respond to threats with executive-level metrics and reporting
DENVER – June 30, 2021 – Swimlane today announced enhancements to its security automation platform that enables security operations teams to bridge the divide between data overload and true end-to-end security automation. As security automation has become a requirement for organizations to stay secure, Swimlane’s architecture addresses each unique customer environment and maximizes the efficiency of all three phases of security – observability, analysis, and real-time response.
Combatting today’s malicious actors requires distributed defenses with an end-to-end, hybrid-cloud approach to automation that can rapidly scale with the growth of data, infrastructure proliferation, and the needs of the business. Swimlane’s one-of-a-kind extensible platform supports both on premise and cloud deployments to ensure security operations teams have the most visibility and robust defensive posture possible. Additionally, the Swimlane platform enables organizations to leverage automation outside of the security operation center (SOC), extending visibility into the far reaches of the enterprise and across multiple departments.
New Features and Updated Swimlane Platform Highlights
- Swimlane QuickStart Service
- Standardized, out-of-the-box applications to alleviate common security operations pain points including analyst burn-out, executive visibility, audit support, and data actionability.
- Swimlane Collaboration Hub
- Integrates Swimlane with common communication channels within an organization to collaborate with the security team’s business partners to break down cross-organizational communication silos. This includes common ticketing systems, chat, email, and file sharing applications such as Jira, Slack, Google Workspace, and Microsoft Office 365 to allow analysts managing security activities to collaborate, communicate and disseminate information with teams outside of the SOC.
- Swimlane Dashboard and Report Publisher
- Easily showcase and demonstrate security operations activities, ROI, and progress toward key organizational goals by scheduling and sharing dashboards and reports with metrics across SOC and non-SOC staff.
“Without security automation, organizations today are blind,” said Cody Cornell, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Swimlane. “Our focus on the customer shines through with this latest release that brings true automation to security teams with visibility and ROI that can extend beyond the SOC.”
“Swimlane is bringing customers the sophistication and features they need for their established lines of communication and preferred methods of collaboration,” said James Brear, CEO, Swimlane. “With this release, we are empowering organizations with a low-code automation solution to build automation solutions that work for them, rather than forcing them to fit into a vendor’s preconceived box or template.”
Swimlane’s momentum in the market is supported by industry recognition and continued growth. Most recently, Swimlane was recognized by the 2021 Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) Global InfoSec Awards as the “Most Innovative” winner for the Security Investigation Platform category. The company also announced key additions to Swimlane’s leadership team, a strategic partnership, released enhanced integrations, expanded operations in EMEA and APAC, and announced $40 million in new financing.
Swimlane is the leader in low-code security automation. The Swimlane Turbine platform unifies security operations in-and-beyond the SOC into a single system of record that helps reduce process and data fatigue, while helping security leaders overcome chronic staffing shortages and more easily quantify business value and the efficacy of security operations.
