AlgoSec Releases Update to Security Management Suite
The company's Security Management Suite provides user-friendly workflows that navigate the user through the entire migration process.AlgoSec released version 6.8 of its Security Management Suite, an integrated solution for managing complex network security policies from the business application layer to the network infrastructure. AlgoSec’s Security Management Suite delivers holistic visibility together with unified automated security policy management across traditional and next-generation firewalls. The software manages network policies both on-premises and across provider controls such as Amazon Security Groups deployed in the public cloud. "Migration of business applications to the cloud is now a given--and sooner rather than later," Nimmy Reichenberg vice president at AlgoSec, told eWEEK. "But security and operations teams currently lack the technology solutions, knowledge and visibility to migrate and manage them effectively in the public cloud. This is because the security controls used in public cloud are very different to the traditional firewalls used in on-premises datacenters." Reichenberg said key challenges of managing network security in the public cloud include unifying visibility of security controls across on-premises datacenters and public cloud environments; understanding how to define and provision cloud security controls, and how to migrate applications, along with their connectivity requirements, to the public cloud.
Other key issues include ensuring compliance and assessing risk in the public cloud and processing changes to the network security policy in the cloud.
