RedSeal Launches Five New Services to Measurably Reduce Cyber Risk Across Remote Workforces

Secure remote workforce, cyber and cloud cyber visibility assessments along with tiered service offerings ensure overtaxed network infrastructures continue to be secure

SAN JOSE, Calif.— In direct response to expanding remote work operations, today RedSeal announced five new services to help enterprises establish safe and secure environments, understand new cyber risks and ensure business continuity.

According to Q1-2020 research, demand for VPNs peaked at 65 percent above average and remains 22 percent higher than pre-pandemic levels (Top10VPN). By focusing on cybersecurity fundamentals, RedSeal’s award-winning cyber terrain analytics platform helps government agencies and Global 2000 companies measurably reduce their cyber risk over these increasingly dynamic attack surfaces.

In the face of rigorous new demands, RedSeal gives security and management teams the most holistic understanding of their organization’s cyber risks – across physical, cloud and virtual networks – including remote endpoints. To further support customers’ success, RedSeal is offering five services packages to improve cyber visibility, cloud cyber visibility, compliance, and risk vulnerability efforts.

“COVID forced a crash course on remote working for companies worldwide; as a result, it’s now an integral and permanent part of business operations,” said Ray Rothrock, CEO and chairman of RedSeal. “The rush required organizations to make significant changes to their networks and potentially expose critical data. Now, our services help address organizations’ urgent need to securely accommodate increased numbers of remote workers while also mitigating exposure to cybersecurity threats.”

RedSeal Secure Remote Work Assessment

This 30-day remote assessment is the fastest way for new customers to get peace of mind that their remote workforce has access to applications and systems without compromising their security posture. The RedSeal Secure Remote Work Assessment helps organizations understand if their network inventory is accurate, if their network devices are securely configured, and if their network is adequately protected.

The company supports the NIST guidelines for enterprise telework security by highlighting configuration gaps in the remote work infrastructure and validating the secure configuration of VPN concentration points.

RedSeal Cyber Visibility Assessment Package

Like the Remote Work Assessment, the RedSeal Cyber Visibility Assessment helps new customers quickly understand if their network device inventory is accurate and if those devices are securely configured. Specifically, during this 30-day remote assessment, a RedSeal professional services engineer will:

  • Identify discrepancies and potential gaps in inventory understanding
  • Review network device configurations and confirm if they adhere to specific and industry-wide best practices, and report any discrepancies
  • Review a network map to identify interconnectivity – and potential risks – between devices
  • Share advice for remediating device configurations that do not comply with best practices

RedSeal Cloud – Cyber Visibility Assessment

The 30-day remote RedSeal Cloud – Cyber Visibility Assessment gives new and existing RedSeal customers the ability to visualize the interconnectivity of their cloud environment and assess the accuracy of their cloud inventory. It includes licenses from one of three RedSeal supported vendors: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Three RedSeal Managed Service Packages

To support current and future work at home/shelter in place scenarios, RedSeal’s Managed Service Packages ensure that network infrastructures can accommodate an increase of remote workers while maintaining their security posture. The three step-up offerings help organizations address their most critical issues. Specifically:

  • Cyber Visibility Package provides an ongoing understanding of what assets are on a network and how they are connected. The service monitors established baseline security controls and network best practices and includes a roadmap — developed and executed — for the security team. Prioritized recommendations for controls, basic security and operational hygiene maintenance are also provided.
  • Cyber Compliance Package includes the Cyber Visibility Package, plus monitoring to ensure compliance with regulatory and internal network segmentation requirements, as well as accelerated security change reviews.
  • Cyber Risk Management Package builds on the Cyber Visibility and Cyber Compliance Packages with strategic remediation, moving efforts from “patch everything” to “patch what matters the most,” to ensure focus stays on asset criticality and reachability from untrusted connections.

Complimentary RedSeal Health Check Service

The free RedSeal Health Check Service is for RedSeal customers who have lacked resources to maximize the benefits of their cyber terrain analytics platform; new RedSeal administrators who want to efficiently operationalize their platform, as well as management teams who want confirmation that RedSeal is delivering on business outcomes.

The multipoint evaluation reviews the RedSeal deployment to determine how well it’s aligned with business goals and prioritizes recommendations and remediation advice to ensure it meets expectations.

RedSeal Launches New Suite of Professional Services to Accelerate Hybrid Network Modeling and Enhance Risk Management

Cybersecurity services increase productivity for resource-constrained security teams

SAN JOSE, Calif. — RedSeal, the leader in network cyber risk modeling for hybrid environments, today introduced a new portfolio of professional services to help customers reduce cyber risk and improve the productivity of their security teams. Organizations in both public and private sectors use the RedSeal platform – which acts as a force multiplier for every security device within a network – to gain critical cyber and business insights. These services expedite deployment, accelerate time-to-value and expand the impact of RedSeal’s platform while offloading burdensome tasks from already overloaded teams.

“Every organization faces either a chronic shortage of skilled cybersecurity personnel or is challenged by managing dozens of security products, or both. This makes it difficult to effectively use the products they have, which ultimately impacts their security posture,” said Ray Rothrock, chairman and CEO of RedSeal. “To address this, our tiered set of services helps customers with everything from speeding the implementation of our platform, to transforming their approach to risk management through managed services.”

The RedSeal platform automates critical cyber risk management functions so organizations can be confident in their approach to managing risk, even within a resource-constrained environment. RedSeal’s services guide customers through the process of leveraging the deep insights contained within the platform, beginning with network discovery and understanding.

“Once you know what you have and can see how everything is connected – across complex cloud and physical environments – then you can use those insights to prioritize and fix areas of risk,” continued Rothrock.

Recognizing that risk management is a continuous process, RedSeal created a professional services portfolio with three main service offerings: Build Project, Run Subscriptions and Managed Subscriptions.

RedSeal Build Project:  This offering accelerates implementation of the RedSeal platform and establishes a baseline network model and associated metrics. Specific deliverables include network device configuration assessment, network access assessment, vulnerability risk prioritization, a built and validated network model, security segmentation and a briefing for the in-house team.

RedSeal Run Subscriptions:  Nearly all RedSeal customers find additional uses for their RedSeal platform as their networks continue to evolve. To help extend the value and further operationalize the platform, RedSeal offers three levels of Run Subscription Services. With each service level, a RedSeal security engineer will work with the organization’s cybersecurity team to deliver assessments and prioritized risk mitigation recommendations.

  • Run Operate Level: The RedSeal security engineer will focus on secure configuration assessments, network model assessments and network access assessments, and transfer that knowledge to the in-house team.
  • Run Accelerate Level: This includes all activities in the Operate level, plus the security engineer addresses security segmentation and compliance monitoring, vulnerability risk prioritization and security change reviews.
  • Run Transform Level: In addition to the Operate and Accelerate activities, the RedSeal security engineer will perform incident investigation, security posture monitoring and strategic security program management.

Managed Subscription Services: For organizations that require additional support, RedSeal’s Managed Subscription Services expand on the selected Run subscription level. In addition to the outcomes customers can expect with Operate, Accelerate or Transform, a RedSeal platform administrator will optimize, upgrade and maintain the platform for the customer.

To meet a customer’s specific needs, RedSeal will also offer customized services, such as integrating the RedSeal platform with existing business process systems or implementing a specific set of best practices.

RedSeal Launches Remote Administrator Managed Service to Augment Customers’ Security Teams and Make Network Situational Awareness More Widely Available

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 10, 2018 — RedSeal, the leader in network modeling and cyber risk scoring, today introduced RedSeal Remote Administrator, a new managed service to augment customers’ security teams, make network situational awareness more widely available, and help customers increase their digital resilience.

Most enterprises have dozens of disparate security products in their environment, each requiring administration and maintenance. At the same time, they face a cybersecurity skills gap: there are not enough qualified people to operate even the products they have.

RedSeal Remote Administrator addresses these issues by becoming an essential part of an organization’s security team.  As part of the service, a dedicated network security engineer will maintain and administer RedSeal’s network modeling and risk scoring platform. Customers will always have a single, up-to-date model of all their network environments – including public cloud, private cloud and physical assets – to validate their security, accelerate their investigation, and improve their productivity.

Specifically, RedSeal will provide Remote Administrator customers with the necessary resources to maintain their deployment, keeping it current and in exceptional working order. This includes a daily cadence of reviewing the network model, ensuring that data collection tasks are working, maintaining the topology map to see that new devices are properly placed, providing scheduled reports, and making certain that the platform is performing as expected.

“Security practitioners need to understand how everything is connected in their networks in order to defend them.  It’s essential for our customers to have an updated and working model so they can continuously improve their security,” said Kurt Van Etten, chief product officer at RedSeal.  “RedSeal Remote Administrator augments an organization’s security team to continuously deliver an accurate model.  The service allows customers to benefit from RedSeal situational awareness—without the need for additional headcount or in-house expertise. They can quickly get the information they need.”

Organizations simply need network access (VPN and Jumpbox) to get started with RedSeal Remote Administrator. The service is available internationally and RedSeal Remote Administrator representatives are on call Monday to Friday during U.S. business hours.
