How to Mitigate Security Risks in the the Cloud

CloudTweaks | August 3, 2021

Enterprises continue to spend billions annually on security technology, yet cyber breaches continue to come fast and furious. So what exactly is going on here? Why are the odds stacked against the good guys?

It turns out there are some pretty good reasons why security remains so elusive. Many organizations simply don’t have the staffing resources to do battle with a heavily automated enemy.

AI, cyber terrain analytics improve hybrid multicloud security

VenturebBeat | May 21, 2021

Typical hybrid cloud IT integration strategies have fundamental design flaws that CIOs and CISOs need to address if they’re going to avert another attack on the scale of SolarWinds.

…any network mapping platform needs to excel at visualization and provide insightful analysis at a graphical level to identify potential security anomalies and actual breach activity. Useful in understanding this is the following example of how RedSeal’s cyber risk modeling software for hybrid cloud environments works.

RedSeal Named Winner of TMC’s Cloud Computing Product of the Year Awards

Technology Marketing Corporation | March 26, 2021

RedSeal was named of a winner of Technology Marketing Corporation’s Cloud Computing Product of the Year Awards,. The awards, presented by Cloud Computing magazine, honors vendors with the most innovative, useful, and beneficial cloud products and services that have been available to deploy within the past year.

RedSeal Delivers the Most Comprehensive Cloud Security Solution to Reduce Cyber Risk by Identifying Network Resources Exposed to the Internet

Integration with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure expands visibility to include majority of public and private clouds and on-premises network environments

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Today RedSeal, announced its integration with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, cementing its position as the most comprehensive solution for measurably reducing cyber risk across cloud and hybrid cloud environments. Now, RedSeal can consolidate network data from four of the five most prevalent cloud infrastructures – Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure– as well as VMware NSX and Cisco ACI, and physical networks, to provide the most holistic network security awareness.

To accurately identify and locate assets unintentionally exposed to the internet, RedSeal brings data from network environments into one comprehensive, dynamic visualization. With 93% of enterprises having a multi-cloud strategy and 87% having a hybrid cloud strategy, the demand for unified, holistic insight is unprecedented. (The 2020 Cloud Computing Trends report).

“Across enterprises, security teams, CISOs and CIOs are struggling to secure the large and quickly growing cache of enterprise assets moving to various cloud environments,” said Chris Steffen, research director for information security at EMA. “RedSeal can play an important role in helping these teams and individuals understand their complex network environments, while delivering confidence that there is no unintended exposure in their network.”

Distinguishing itself from other cloud security products, RedSeal provides cyber teams with mission-critical insights, including:

  • Understanding exactly what resources exist and where they are, across all public, private cloud and on-premises environments
  • If any of those resources are unintentionally exposed to the internet
  • What access is possible within and between cloud and on-premises environments
  • Confirmation of the riskiest vulnerabilities in the cloud, so they can be remediated first

In addition, RedSeal automates essential processes, such as:

  • Verifying that network devices and cloud environments meet security best practices
  • Validating cloud network segmentation policies
  • Continuously monitoring compliance with internal policies and external regulations

“Organizations are using a combination of cloud native and third-party security controls from multiple vendors,” said Kurt Van Etten, chief product officer at RedSeal. “Only RedSeal can accurately evaluate all these controls in one place.”

Fully Managed Services Formally Available

To help inundated security teams reduce security risk and ensure their network is configured the way they intended, RedSeal is formally offering additional value via three levels of subscription-based, professional services. All three tiers include a RedSeal security engineer who will work collaboratively with cybersecurity teams on an ongoing basis to deliver various assessments and make prioritized recommendations to mitigate risks. For subscribers, RedSeal will optimize, upgrade and maintain the RedSeal solution, along with their security engineer’s assessments and recommendations. The three levels are:

  • Cyber Visibility — includes assessments of both the network and endpoint inventory, as well as their secure configurations
  • Cyber Compliance — adds network segmentation and compliance monitoring as well as security change reviews, in addition to the Cyber Visibility offerings. As a result, staff can be confident that they are continuously monitoring compliance with policies and regulations like PCI DSS and NERC-CIP, and validating segmentation policies
  • Cyber Risk Management adds incident investigation, security posture monitoring, vulnerability risk prioritization and cyber risk assessment, in addition to the offerings from the other two tiers

In 2020, RedSeal won Cloud Computing Magazine’s Security Excellence Award and Security Today’s New Product of the Year for its cloud security solutions and services.

Simplifying security: how to navigate the integration challenge

Computer Fraud & Security | January 2021

We deploy a lot of security technology, but breaches continue. Either we’re bad at this or the game is stacked against us.

It turns out it’s the latter – there are structural reasons why security remains so elusive. We’re short staffed, up against a heavily automated group of adversaries, and our IT infrastructure is fragmenting. Mike Lloyd at RedSeal suggests that we need to find a better way to target investments in security to where they are most needed, and then integrate a single view of our ever-widening attack surface.
