Organizations face a variety of challenges as they work to secure their systems from the ever-growing number of malicious attacks. Of those, one of the most critical is the combination of a workforce shortage and the increasing number of critical alerts that incident response (IR) and security operations center (SOC) teams receive. Reviewing those alerts and prescribing action are time-intensive tasks that are draining analysts time, keeping them from taking the steps needed to secure the environment.

Swimlane offers a security orchestration, automation and response option that may be useful for organizations looking to increase efficiency of their alert processing and response actions. This review puts the solution through its paces to examine how it can help organizations.

In this webcast, attendees will learn how Swimlane performs with respect to:

  • Ease of use, including contextualized alerts, playbooks of responses and robust reporting
  • Case management, including customizability, access control and case permissions
  • Integration, including out-of-the box integration capabilities, customer support and integrated remediation actions
