Tines vs. Swimlane

Why no-code is not sufficient for security automation

The Pitfalls of Tines’ No-Code Approach

The intrigue of no-code security automation solutions gained momentum for its simplicity and ease of use. While this is true, their simplicity comes with limitations that security teams cannot afford. Simple doesn’t always mean better. Each business is unique and needs a tailored solution based on their current maturity or complexity level with flexibility to scale in the future.

Inability to Handle Large Volumes of Data

Tines is not able to enrich petabytes of data. It’s impossible to predict how many security events you’re going to have tomorrow and as your company grows, making this limitation dangerous and not sustainable for enterprise organizations.

Tines Scale is Limited by Actions and Customization

When you choose a fully-built application, you lose the freedom to fully customize the platform to fit your team’s needs. Tines only enables 7 types of actions to be automated, and no-code means no-customization to trigger additional actions.

Tines Lacks Case Management

The Tines platform does not offer case management or ticket management capabilities. Without these capabilities, it’s impossible to have humans in the loop of automation. This human interaction is essential for applying business logic, extending security automation beyond the security operations center (SOC), and improving risk posture over time.

Lack of Dashboards is a Time Suck

Tines does not have dashboard or reporting capabilities. This means that when you need to audit the efficiency of your processes in Tines, you’ll need to click into every single playbook – or story, as Tines calls it – to validate that the workflow was successful. This lack of visibility is tedious for analysts and will result in gaps going unnoticed.
