With Dr. Mike Lloyd, RedSeal CTO

In part one of our discussion with Dr. Mike Lloyd of RedSeal, he shared the steps that form the basis of a cyber resilience plan so that agencies can take to limit – and recover from – the impact of a cyberattack. Continuing the discussion, Lloyd drills deeper into steps any organization can take to become more resilient. 

Bouncing Back After a Breach: A Q&A with Dr. Mike Lloyd of RedSeal

Government Technology Insider | November 13, 2018

With Dr. Mike Lloyd, RedSeal CTO

While preventing a cyberattack is often the sole focus of many security strategies, the reality is, your organization is likely to suffer a breach or other disruption to network operations. How you prepare for an inevitable break-in can make all the difference. The answer lies in cyber resilience. 

That’s the key message from Dr. Mike Lloyd, Chief Technology Officer for RedSeal. Lloyd says that organizations who believe they have fully protected themselves from cyber threats are missing the point. Instead, planning and preparing for “what can possibly go wrong” can help prevent the worst and get you back up and running faster and with much less impact to your operations and your users.

RedSeal Bolsters Digital Resilience Platform to Deliver Most Comprehensive Model of Enterprise Data Centers

Exclusive new features give enterprises ability to strengthen security posture with greater visibility into and across their cyber terrain

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – November 13, 2018 – RedSeal today announced the latest upgrade to its award-winning network modeling and risk scoring platform, trusted by more than 50 U.S. government agencies and hundreds of Global 2000 companies worldwide. To create the most complete network model possible, RedSeal’s platform now validates policies at the application and networking levels, as well as provides endpoint modeling. These exclusive new capabilities bolster users’ understanding of their complete enterprise data centers, including public cloud, private cloud and physical network environments, which in turn extends an enterprise’s foundation for being resilient to cyber events.

Unprecedented Network Context with Application-Based Policies: Layer 7 Application ID

Large enterprises with Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) can now use RedSeal to visualize access and validate policies at the application level (Layer 7), as well as at the networking level (Layers 2, 3 and 4). No other security, network modeling or cyber risk scoring product provides this level of visibility, understanding and validation for an organization’s security posture.

With this kind of visibility within and between their network environments, users can understand and prioritize incidents and vulnerabilities wherever they are. This is a significant new capability because traditional firewall policies are based on the networking level—defined by source, destination, port, and protocol. NGFWs, however, are becoming more prevalent in networks and users can create policies, to be implemented by the firewalls, based on the identities of specific applications or Application IDs. For example, RedSeal can validate a “Deny Skype” policy that has been applied to specific addresses, or across all ports and protocols, further strengthening the user’s security posture.

Expand Picture of Cyber Terrain with Endpoint Information from All Sources

With its capabilities expanding to include endpoint modeling, RedSeal is the only resource that models and consolidates endpoint information from any source. This feature gives RedSeal users the ability to import and store information about their endpoints from multiple sources, including vulnerability scanners, Endpoint Protection and Endpoint Detection Response (EDR) solutions, as well as other applications such as Active Directory.

“A comprehensive understanding of network assets and paths is the foundation of a digital resilience strategy,” said Kurt Van Etten, chief product officer at RedSeal. “With its latest enhancements, RedSeal’s platform is the only product on the market that models Layer 2, 3, 4, and 7 policies and consolidates endpoint information from any source. As a result, RedSeal builds the most complete model available, including public and private clouds, physical assets and endpoint sources. The important new features introduced in our latest product ensure users can confidently validate their security posture, accelerate investigation and improve productivity of network and security teams.

Cyber resilience: not just bouncing back, but a strategy for effective cyber defense

Government Technology Insider | November 8, 2018

With Dr. Mike Lloyd, RedSeal CTO

Most discussions on cybersecurity focus on prevention, but not cyber defense. But, the unfortunate reality is, some attacks will be successful no matter how well you’ve protected your networks. The question then becomes, just how quickly can you get back online and back to business?

For the Government Technology Insider podcast, we asked Dr. Mike Lloyd, Chief Technology Officer for RedSeal about how to achieve “digital resilience” – the ability to prepare for and recover from a cyber attack.
