LOUISVILLE, Colo., June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Swimlane, a leader in automated incident response and security orchestration, announced today an interoperability with the RSA NetWitness Suite®. Together, Swimlane and RSA can better help customers quickly identify and investigate malicious network behavior, without increasing the workload on security operations staff. The interoperability also streamlines security operations through a more centralized approach to automated incident response and security orchestration.

"Swimlane is committed to improving cybersecurity threat response capabilities and lowering incident response times by creating interoperability with best-of-breed solutions like the RSA Netwitness Suite," said Cody Cornell, CEO and founder of Swimlane. "RSA and Swimlane will provide highly automated responses and facilitate interoperability with other platforms. By automating the workflow and response, Swimlane will help RSA NetWitness Suite customers respond faster and more consistently to network-based attacks."

As the volume of cyberattacks continues to rise, security administrators struggle to keep pace while manually performing repetitive and time-consuming tasks to track, mitigate and resolve security events across multiple platforms. Research by the Ponemon Institute finds that the average security operations team receives 17,000 alerts every week, but is only able to investigate 29 percent of them. According to a 2015 analysis of Bureau of Labor statistics reported by the Peninsula Press, there are currently more than 209,000 unfilled cybersecurity positions in the U.S. alone.

Swimlane helps organizations get the most out of existing resources by automating time-intensive, manual processes and operational workflows in real time. An API-first architecture, extensive out-of-the-box integrations and prepackaged templates are designed to allow organizations to quickly enable orchestration across their entire security infrastructure. Swimlane aims to deliver powerful analytics, real-time dashboards and key performance reporting to maximize the incident response capabilities of over-burdened and understaffed security operations.

RSA NetWitness Suite is a threat detection and response platform designed to allow security teams to rapidly detect and understand the full scope of a compromise by leveraging logs, packets, endpoints and threat intelligence. By aligning business context to security risks, the RSA NetWitness Suite is engineered to close the gaps of technology-only solutions by leveraging the most advanced capabilities to analyze, prioritize, and investigate threats, thus making security analysts up to 3x more effective and efficient.

The interoperability with Swimlane is designed allow RSA NetWitness Suite customers to automate incident response workflows to respond to cyber attacks. Customers will have the option of collecting PCAPs and logs from RSA NetWitness Suite, either automatically or on-click, for additional investigation within Swimlane. Importing RSA NetWitness Suite data into Swimlane will deliver consolidated event details from multiple platforms for rapid investigation and alarm triage interoperabilities with additional security platforms will enable the execution of automated actions in response to any alarm. This should deliver stronger threat protection and a greater return on investment from the entire security infrastructure.
