As a member of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance, Swimlane plays a critical role in the program’s mission to accelerate the development of interoperable security products and simplify product integration within complex customer environments, delivering joint customers better value and more protection against the growing threat landscape. With this integration, Swimlane and McAfee address a rising industry need to shorten response times from security events and more easily remediate compromised systems, leading to a simplified Threat Defense Lifecycle.

“Swimlane streamlines operational efficiency, lowers incident response times, and improves security by integrating with best-of-breed solutions like McAfee ePO,” said Cody Cornell, CEO and founder of Swimlane. “Through integration with McAfee ePO, Swimlane and McAfee now provide our joint customers with highly automated incident response and interoperability with other security platforms. By automating the workflow and response, Swimlane and McAfee joint customers can now respond faster and more consistently to a broad range of advanced attacks that are targeting their endpoints.”

Swimlane helps organizations get the most out of existing resources by automating time-intensive, manual processes and operational workflows in real time. An API-first architecture, extensive out-of-the-box integrations and pre-packaged templates allow organizations to quickly enable orchestration across their entire security infrastructure. Swimlane delivers powerful analytics, real-time dashboards and key performance reporting to maximize the incident response capabilities of over-burdened and understaffed security operations teams.

With the integration of McAfee ePO technology, customers can now automatically initiate incident response workflows to address alarms. Importing configuration data from the McAfee ePO database into Swimlane delivers consolidated event details tied to potential endpoint attacks. This data can be correlated against additional event details pulled from multiple platforms for rapid investigation and triage. Swimlane can also apply tags from the McAfee ePO console to specific endpoints for immediate policy enforcement to help facilitate faster incident response and a greater return on investment from the entire security infrastructure.

“We’re pleased to see Swimlane complete McAfee compatibility testing with ePO to meet multiple use cases that will help joint customers address threats faster and more efficiently,” said D.J. Long, head of McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. “With this integration, joint customers will reap the benefits of reduced operational costs, greater protection and improved compliance.”

Kaspersky to Close Washington Office But Expand Non-State Sales …

A Russian software-maker, whose products are banned for use in federal information systems by the U.S. government, is seeking to remain in the North American market and prove its products have no hidden capabilities.

Kaspersky Lab Inc. will close its Washington D.C. office that was selling to the government and will keep working with non-federal customers in the U.S. via its remaining offices in the country, vice-president Anton Shingarev said in an interview in Moscow. The company also committed in October to open its product’s source code to an independent third-party review and plans to open new offices in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto next year.

“This allows independent experts to verify that our software has no hidden functionality, that it doesn’t send your files to third parties, doesn’t spy on you and fully complies with the end-user agreement,” Shingarev said. 

The U.S. banned government use of Kaspersky software in September, citing founder Eugene Kaspersky’s alleged ties to Russian intelligence and the possibility its products could function as “malicious actors” to compromise federal information systems. The move caused concern about the company’s products in other markets, including the U.K.

Losing state clients may cost “single-digit” percentage decline in the company’s U.S. revenue, Shingarev said, and added that Kaspersky is receiving questions from clients about its software’s security after the government ban.

The U.K. restrictions are different from the U.S. ones, Shingarev said. Britain’s National Cyber Security Centre only “advised” U.K. government bodies working with classified information against choosing Kaspersky software, according to a letter on its website.

“We are in talks with NCSC and are trying to figure out what’s needed to deserve an opposite recommendation,” Shingarev said. “In general, they support the idea of opening the source code of our software for independent audit.”

“What I like about Europe is that their regulators are fact-driven,” he said, adding that the U.S. ban was instead based on “emotions” and “speculations.”

Kaspersky plans to create Transparency Centers in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, within which its software’s code can be analyzed by independent experts. “There will be a SCIF-class facility with security cameras, no internet, and independent experts analyzing our code with Kaspersky employees answering any questions they have,” Shingarev said

Shingarev said the company doesn’t want Russia’s government to block its country’s use of American software — such as products from Symantec Corp. and Intel Corp.-backed McAfee — in retaliation to the U.S. restriction.

“I am against any bans,” he said. “Any protective measures could be very dangerous long-term. We have great expertise in protecting banks against Russian hackers and if U.S. were to ban us from their banks it would be shooting itself in a foot.” 

The same is true for Russia, Shingarev said. “Too aggressive protectionism would kill competition.”
