Cybersecurity fundamentals: Emphasize and automate the cybersecurity basics
Ask your security teams what they need (besides more staff) and you may be surprised. Rather than the latest, shiniest security tool, they may want help with the cybersecurity basics. These critical tasks are the fundamentals of cybersecurity — monitoring network changes, evaluating devices to see if they’re securely configured, making sure that only authorized people have access to critical data, keeping your network in compliance with relevant policies and regulations – but can be time-consuming and tedious. However, it is through those mundane, basic tasks that security is created.
Most cybersecurity breaches are caused by exploiting oversights in those basic things. A ‘temporary’ connection left open. Default passwords or patches not installed on critical devices. Whole sections of the network not under security management.
RedSeal automates those basic cybersecurity activities, increasing confidence that you’ve left no obvious openings in your network.
