“Before RedSeal it was challenging to give our CEO a true assessment of the company’s IT risk. With RedSeal, we now have a clear picture of our ongoing risk posture and continuously know where we stand.” - Kanon Cozad, SVP and Director, Enterprise Architecture - UMB Financial Corporation
Meeting The Demands Of Continuous Monitoring
RedSeal Networks capabilities have widespread applicability throughout both the Federal government and private enterprise as organizations strive to improve their overall security posture. The RedSeal platform automatically assesses the security infrastructure of a network so organizations can strengthen their cyber-defenses.
With RedSeal, organizations can rapidly and efficiently address the need to test, track and validate the “effectiveness of information security policies, procedures, and practices” via “automation of management, operational and technical controls.”
By providing detailed visibility into the ongoing efficacy of all firewalls and network security devices across the entire enterprise, RedSeal delivers strategic security monitoring and risk assessment capabilities that:
- Track the security state of information systems on an ongoing basis and maintain required access authorization
- Support FISMA requirements for assessment of security controls with a frequency depending on their importance in protecting critical assets
- Assess the security impact on information systems resulting from planned and unplanned changes to their hardware, software, firmware, or operational environment
Operational dashboards and multi-level reports convey relevant metrics highlighting key trends in the protection of specific digital assets – and the ability to foster continuous adherence with regulatory requirements. The RedSeal 6 platform is an integrated security, compliance and risk management system that offers clear visibility into the current security state and regulatory compliance, and identifies the inherent risk within operational networks.
By maintaining this complete and continuous awareness of all IT defenses, informed with the full context of underlying hosts’ specific business value and grounded in quantitative metrics, RedSeal produces an otherwise unavailable level of insight into IT security, compliance and risk mitigation – cutting through the ocean of event logs and data to more effectively measure key indicators of security effectiveness.
