More than half of federal IT officials in a new survey say their agencies aren’t keeping pace with evolving cybersecurity threats

A new survey of IT leaders at civilian, defense and intelligence agencies explores how prepared agencies are to continue operating during an attack.

WASHINGTON, D.C.  — Two-thirds of federal IT executives in a new survey say their agencies are moderately-to-highly prepared to withstand a cyberattack and continue to function. But a number of gaps in cybersecurity resilience remain.

Nearly 7 in 10 federal civilian agency IT leaders — and more than half (55 percent) of their defense and intelligence agency counterparts — say their agencies aren’t keeping pace with evolving threats, according to the study.

Though 2 in 3 respondents report their agency “has sufficient tools to identify cyberthreats,” well over half still say their agencies “don’t have all the tools and resources they need in place to respond to cyberthreats,” according to the new study, released by CyberScoop and FedScoop, and underwritten by RedSeal.

The study found about roughly two-thirds of IT officials surveyed say their agency can detect — and more than half say they can respond to — cybersecurity incidents within 12 hours. But tracking “incidents” may belie deeper threats lurking in networks, observed Wayne Lloyd, federal chief technology officer at RedSeal.

The study explored how resilient federal agencies are at withstanding cyberattacks, what tools and activities they rely on most to respond to identify and respond to attacks, and the top investment priorities and concerns of agency officials.

Executives are investing most heavily now in data and network protection tools and threat intelligence, but “they still need help overcoming a talent shortage of cybersecurity professionals,” said Wyatt Kash, SVP of Content Strategy at Scoop News Group, which publishes CyberScoop and FedScoop.

The findings are based on responses from more than 100 prequalified federal agency government IT, cybersecurity and mission, business or program executives. All respondents are involved either in identifying IT and network security requirements, evaluating or deciding on solutions and contractors, allocating budgets, or implementing or maintaining cybersecurity solutions. The study was completed in the first quarter of 2018.

XL Catlin and RedSeal Launch Cyber Insurance Industry’s First Dynamic Measure of Resilience to Gauge Risk, Improve Cybersecurity and Insurance Terms

Collaboration delivers unprecedented, continual insights to help underwriters evaluate cyber risk at policy issuance and during the policy; Companies can use information to improve network resilience and policy terms

 NEW YORK, March 27, 2018 XL Catlin and RedSeal today announced a new, dynamic approach to cyber insurance, which uses an objective measurement of a network’s resilience to help underwriters more thoroughly evaluate their clients’ risks over time, helps clients continue to improve their cybersecurity and potentially improve their insurance terms.

Unlike other cyber insurance risk analyses, which rely on surveys and a general understanding of the network at the time of the initial underwriting, XL Catlin’s approach offers its clients a more accurate, dynamic and helpful service.

RedSeal’s patented network modeling and risk scoring platform creates a network model from the inside out, including physical assets, as well as those in public and private cloud environments. With this insight, RedSeal calculates the Digital Resilience Score, a holistic measure of the network’s resilience, similar to a credit worthiness score. The Score evaluates the client’s network to determine:

  • How weaknesses from incorrectly configured devices and third-party software could impact the network;
  • How accessible a company’s valuable assets are to attackers; and
  • The degree to which the network – including all its devices and their connections – is understood.

More resilient networks deliver higher scores, which means they are potentially lower risks. Once an XL Catlin client installs RedSeal and gets their initial Digital Resilience Score, and again during a mid-term evaluation, XL Catlin will determine if the client’s resilience warrants improved terms.

“We see this collaboration as a win-win for all involved,” said John Coletti, chief underwriting officer, cyber and technology, XL Catlin. “We’re giving our clients the option to create a cycle of continuous improvement in their cyber security efforts. Plus, our underwriters have more in-depth information to evaluate their risk and provide the most appropriate policy terms and pricing – and our customers can use the same information to improve their resilience and lower their risk.”

“The cyber insurance industry is evolving quickly, and technology companies are working to provide useful, data-driven solutions that matter,” said Ray Rothrock, CEO and chairman of RedSeal. “RedSeal’s platform of network modeling and scoring provides unique insights and hard to find issues within digital enterprises for both XL Catlin’s underwriters and their clients, which we expect will benefit both. We’re enabling a new, collaborative era in cyber insurance and cybersecurity.”

RedSeal Enhances Digital Resilience Platform, Dramatically Reducing Network Analysis Time and Boosting Security Team Productivity

Expanded coverage of hybrid datacenters creates more complete and accurate network models
New integration apps accelerate incident investigations and bring live traffic into RedSeal platform

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – November 14, 2017 – RedSeal today announced new enhancements and integrations for its market leading network modeling and risk scoring platform, used by more than 40 U.S. government agencies and many Global 2000 companies worldwide.

More Holistic View Across Hybrid Datacenters

Nearly all large enterprises today include on-premise, cloud and virtualized networks, which results in network systems that are large, complex, and constantly changing. This makes it very difficult to have a complete and detailed understanding of the current state of a network. To address this, RedSeal is expanding its Software Defined Networks (SDN) and public cloud capabilities with the addition of Microsoft Azure ARM (Azure Resource Manager) modeling, and support for RedSeal’s virtual appliance to run on Microsoft Hypervisor, Hyper-V. This builds on its existing ability to model networks on Amazon Web Services Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs), and software-defined networks (SDNs) in VMWare NSX, and Cisco ACI.

CIS Benchmarks

RedSeal also announces support for CIS Benchmarks for Cisco, enabling customers to conduct secure configuration checks of their network devices against the CIS standard.

New Integrations for Improved Productivity

To improve security team productivity, RedSeal is adding new integration apps with IBM’s QRadar SIEM and Micro Focus ArcSight’s Enterprise Security Management (ESM) software. RedSeal customers can also bring live traffic information from Gigamon’s Visibility Platform directly into their RedSeal queries. Specifically:

  • Gigamon Visibility Platform customers can now call Gigamon from the RedSeal user interface to see if live traffic is occurring in any detailed path query in RedSeal.
  • Apps for IBM’s QRadar SIEM and Micro Focus ArcSight’s ESM dramatically reduce incident investigation times for users by giving them unprecedented network context and actionable intelligence. By integrating RedSeal’s network modeling platform into their current interface, they will be able to quickly kick off an incident investigation phase by cross launching the RedSeal IR query directly from the console of the product they use.

These add to RedSeal’s existing suite of integration apps with Splunk’s Enterprise Security SIEM, Rapid7’s Insight VM vulnerability management software, and ForeScout’s CounterACT, announced earlier this year.

“Bad actors continue to unleash advanced attacks targeting vulnerabilities enterprises don’t know exist,” Kurt Van Etten, vice president of product management at RedSeal. “The first step to improving digital resilience is to prepare for these unknown and unavoidable attacks by having a complete understanding of access across hybrid datacenters. These new enhancements bring our customers a holistic view of their network, whether on-premise, virtual or in the cloud, while accelerating incident containment times through increased power and deep integrations with current security solutions.”
