Swimlane Selects Lastline to Augment its Automated Security Platform
Lastline’s industry-leading malware detection plus Swimlane’s security orchestration, automation and response technology sets new standard for enterprise cybersecurity.
REDWOOD CITY, CA, March 27, 2018 – Lastline Inc., the leader in advanced network-based malware protection, today announced a partnership with Swimlane, a leader in security automation and orchestration (SAO). Together, Lastline and Swimlane help enterprises quickly and efficiently identify, inspect, and respond to advanced malware attacks without increasing the workload on security operations staff. The interopability also streamlines security operations through a more centralized approach to security orchestration, automation and response.
“Swimlane is committed to improving cybersecurity threat response capabilities and lowering incident response times by integrating with products like Lastline” said Cody Cornell, CEO and founder of Swimlane. “We are partnering with Lastline so that our customers can lower response times to malware-based attacks and gain valuable context during the incident response process through immediate access to critical threat intelligence and indicators of compromise (IOC) data. By automating the analysis, workflow and response, this partnership will enable enterprises to detect and remediate cyberattacks before valuable data is lost.”
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. And the 2017 Cybersecurity Jobs Report predicts that the global shortage of cybersecurity professionals will result in 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2021.
Together, Lastline and Swimlane help enterprises address these challenges. Integration between Swimlane and Lastline enables customers to automate as much as 90 percent of the incident response process tied to inspecting and responding to advanced malware attacks. This is done via integrated automation and orchestration that allows Swimlane to automate tasks like submitting suspicious files and URLs to Lastline for analysis. Lastline delivers IOCs and threat intelligence to Swimlane in response to alarms from any third-party solution, automatically providing critical event context. Lastline will also create IOCs based on Swimlane incident response reports.
Swimlane has partnered with Lastline for its critical malware detection capability and proven effectiveness, as documented by independent third-party testing. Mirroring the results of the 2016 test, Lastline achieved 100 percent in both malware detection and overall Security Effectiveness in the NSS Labs’ 2017 Breach Detection Systems group test, the only product ever to achieve a perfect score in multiple years.
Lastline provides network breach protection that is innovating the way companies defend against advanced malware with fewer resources and at lower cost. We deliver the visibility, context, analysis, and integrations enterprise security teams need to quickly and completely eradicate network breaches and malware-based threats before damaging and costly data breaches occur. Headquartered in Redwood City, California with offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia, Lastline’s technology is used by Global 5000 enterprises, is offered directly and through resellers and security service providers, and is integrated into leading third-party security technologies worldwide. www.lastline.com
