“As the complexity and sophistication of attacks persist, security teams are making every effort to mature their operations with security automation at the centre. Swimlane offers customers a system of record for security operations with the ability to enable automation in and outside of the SOC. Swimlane’s low-code approach to automation means customers can unlock new use cases previously not possible with traditional security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR).”

Swimlane’s entry into the META market follows its recent $70 million growth fundraising round headed by Activate Capital. Swimlane is expected to exhibit its low-code security automation tool at Gitex Global together with its META-based CEOs.
