BOULDER, Colo., March 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Swimlane, a developer of cyber security automation solutions, today announced that Datashield, a leading Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) has adopted the Swimlane platform to help Datashield enterprise customers better detect and defeat advanced security threats.
Datashield will utilize Swimlane to standardize SOC (Security Operations Center) and IR (Incident Response) procedures across its customer base, allowing for scalable, best-practice security operations to be consistently and efficiently delivered.
Swimlane is an automated security operations platform that centralizes an organization's security alerts, alarms and incidents to automate resolution and deliver a better ROI on current and future security investments. Using an automated workflow engine and security orchestration, Swimlane reduces manual effort by automatically responding to alerts, gathering related threat intelligence and automating the implementation of security controls.
"Swimlane will allow our security teams to spend more time finding malicious activity rather than performing administrative or repetitive tasks, which will provide a higher quality of service for our customers," said Datashield CEO Michael Malone. "With the addition of Swimlane it allows us to have centralized focused alerts and automate our established remediation procedures."
Managed Security Services Providers experience many of the same challenges of traditional SOCs such as talent shortages, huge data volumes, data aggregation, and reporting. However, a security analyst at an MSSP also simultaneously supports multiple customers -- each with their own detection technologies, procedures and intelligence sources. With automation, MSSPs become more effective in their ability to monitor and analyze data, helping organizations identify potential threats and breaches and respond quickly and effectively to neutralize any identified threats.
"Swimlane is the perfect fit for the MSSP environment. Our goal is to enable Datashield to manage more clients with lower operating costs, while providing an improved level of service," said Swimlane co-founder Cody Cornell.
The consequences of missing alerts or slow response times could result in costs of millions of dollars.
Swimlane integrates with an organization's existing technology. Its many distinct features include:
- Centralize security operations activities
- Capture, standardize and scale security processes
- Provide situational awareness of an incident and potentially related events that may be part of a larger attack
- Automate defense with security orchestration with machine-speed decision making and remediation
- Deliver metrics for oversight and insight
