Datashield Bolsters Security with Swimlane Platform

By Rory Lidstone

With the sheer number of malware attacks, as well as the variety of malware itself, on the rise, it’s no surprise that companies continue to struggle with security—especially cloud security. As a result, of course, the threat and vulnerability management market is set to see major growth, reaching $8.6 billion by 2020, according to ABI Research. In the meantime, companies in the cyber security space are here to help protect businesses and service providers from cyber-attacks.

For an example of this, look no further than Swimlane, a developer of cyber security automation solutions, being selected by managed security services provider (MSSP) Datashield to help enterprise customers better detect and defeat advanced security threats. In particular, Datashield will leverage the Swimlane platform to standardize its Security Operations Center (SOC) and Incident Response (IR) procedure across its customer base. The result is more consistent and efficiently delivered scalable, best practice security operations.

"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."

Swimlane is an automated security operations platform that centralizes an organization’s security alerts, alarms and incidents to automate resolution, delivering a better ROI on current and future security investments as a result. With an automated workflow engine and security orchestration, Swimlane reduces manual effort, instead responding automatically to alerts, gathering related threat intelligence, and automating the implementation of security controls.

MSSPs experience many of the same challenges of traditional SOCs, including talent shortages, huge data volumes, data aggregation, and reporting.

"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.
