LOUISVILLE, Colo., April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Swimlane (https://swimlane.com), a leader in automated incident response and security orchestration, today announced it was named a Breakout Vendor by Forrester Research in its April 2017 Breakout Vendors: Security Automation and Orchestration (SAO).

SAO is defined by Forrester as "Technology products that provide automated, coordinated, and policy-based action of security processes across multiple technologies, making security operations faster, less error-prone, and more efficient." According to Forrester, "The ability to integrate with clients' existing security infrastructure is key for the adoption of SAO.
