Cybersecurity Automation for Federal Agencies

The end of fiscal year 2024 marks the deadline for when all U.S. federal agencies will be required to have implemented a SOAR solution. Ensure compliance and improve SecOps performance with low-code security automation.

are prepared for Zero Trust



Not all federal agencies are prepared to meet the U.S. government Zero Trust requirements.

Rely on low-code security automation



Many federal agencies have the tools in place to help them to meet all the criteria of implementing Zero Trust.

Deployment models with feature-parody



Complete deployment control. From on-premises to air-gapped or cloud-native Swimlane is full-featured.

Comply with the zero trust mandate

The Biden Administration executive order M-21-31 states that security automation orchestration and response (SOAR) is required in order to comply with the 2024 zero trust mandiate. More than half of federal agencies already use low-code security automation in order to implement zero trust and comply with federal regulatory requirements.

Strengthen defenses against nation-state attacks

Governments across the world are often the targets of advanced persistent threats (APT) and nation-state actors. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) offers open-source intelligence to help organizations defend against malicious state-sponsored adversaries. Many federal agencies rely on security automation platforms to integrate and orchestrate their defenses against these sophisticated attacks.

Recruit, retain and enhance security talent 

35% of federal agencies believe they will never have a fully-staffed security team with the proper skills. That’s why federal agencies are levering low-code security to “lighten the load” of implementing the
SOAR component of the executive order. Once implemented, security teams benefit from the efficiencies and scale that security automation offers.

Gain intelligence-driven security insights

Integrate disparate security technologies into a single automation pipeline to gain visibility. Robust case management with customizable dashboards and reporting enable fast, precise decision making for public sector cybersecurity teams.

The Drawbacks of No-Code Security Automation

Lack of Features

47% of surveyed participants said that no-code solutions lack features like reporting and case management capabilities

Deployment limitations

44% of participants said these solutions do not support all environments, including public cloud and hybrid environments.

Short Term Solution

43% of participants said that no-code tools will have to be replaced in the short term as it does not answer all federal agencies’ needs.

We used to spend hours manually digging into multiple systems and looking through approved software lists… Now authorized software is usually a 15-20 minute incident. It’s all been automated.

US Government Agency

I liked that with Swimlane we didn’t need to devote a lot of resources to deploy or maintain new point solutions, integrations, or use cases. It’s incredible how agile the system is and how little we have to invest in getting it up and running.

Case Study: US Gov Agency Security

An in-depth analysis of a a large managed security services provider (MSSP) with several 24/7 security operations centers (SOCs) located around the world that faced the common challenge of scaling a growing number of customers with limited analyst headcount and how they addressed the challenge with Swimlane’s security automation platform.
