Swimlane, a Denver-based security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) vendor, has launched a new channel program and technical alliances program. The company also announced that its SOAR solution is now available on Linux with support for Docker and Kubernetes, allowing for an improved DevSecOps approach to cybersecurity.
DevSecOps merges development and operations with security practices in an effort to remove silos and boost information sharing. With Swimlane 4.0, users can install Swimlane on Linux, with support for Docker and Kubernetes and configure the platform in a way that best suits their needs.
The new channel program includes a tiered certification program that provides training, variable discounts and a simplified pricing model based on the number of end users with no cost for alerts, actions, or integrations. The program also enables partners to more effectively leverage demos and proof of concepts (POCs) in the sales process. Based on their level of engagement, partners can also be trained to provide professional services for the Swimlane platform.
Meanwhile, the technical alliance program is designed to help the company’s technology partners get better access to the team, product and community, allowing vendors to create integrations faster and fostering stronger bonds with technology partners.
“As we launch this program, we hope to take an even more collaborative approach to security,” said CEO Cody Cornell. “SOAR is an impactful solution that provides the automation necessary for any enterprise to keep up with an ever-evolving threat landscape.”
Swimlane has vocally supported a collaborative approach to cybersecurity, including extensive information sharing among security operations centers. The two programs included in this announcement tend to support that perspective from both a technical point of view and a sales point of view.
