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.
