Swimlane’s Automated Security Platform

Managed security services provider (MSSP) Datashield has adopted the Swimlane platform to automate detection and remediation of advance security threats in customer networks, the companies announced today.

The automated security operations platform centralizes security alerts, alarms and incidents, and automatically collects threat intelligence and implements security controls.

Swimlane will be deployed as part of Datashield’s security operations center and incident response procedures.

“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,” Datashield CEO Michael Malone said.  “With the addition of Swimlane it allows us to have centralized, focused alerts and automate our established remediation procedures.”

The platform integrates with existing technology and is billed as a way to help MSSPs mitigate challenges like talent shortages, large data volumes, data aggregation and reporting, while supporting multiple customers with varying detection technologies and approaches. 

Swimlane provides situational awareness of incidents and other events that may be part of a larger attack, and uses security orchestration to quickly analyze and react to threats. 

“Swimlane is the perfect fit for the MSSP environment,” Swimlane co-founder Cody Cornell said. “Our goal is to enable Datashield to manage more clients with lower operating costs, while providing an improved level of service.”
