Brief Overview

AlgoSec’s Security Management Solution gives organizations holistic, single-console security management of their entire network, including public and private clouds, as well as on-premise deployments. This ensures smoother, faster, safer, and more compliant network security management.

A 2019 survey by the Cloud Security Alliance of 700 IT and security professionals from a variety of organizations found that 42.5% had experienced a network or application outage over the previous year. The leading cause was operational — human errors in the management of security and network devices. These are the result of simple, manual mistakes while making complex changes to security devices and policies.

According to Gartner, “by 2023, 99% of firewall breaches will be caused by firewall misconfigurations, not firewall flaws.”

AlgoSec’s solution eliminates these mistakes by enabling IT and security teams to manage and control all their security devices – from cloud controls in public clouds such as Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, etc, SDNs, and on-premise firewalls from one single console. With zero-touch automation, the solution can then automatically push the change to all devices, working with the organization’s existing business processes.

This dramatically accelerates change processes and enables better enforcement and auditing for regulatory compliance. It also helps organizations overcome skills gaps and staffing limitations. AlgoSec’s automation accelerates change processes to boost agility without compromising security.

AlgoSec also reduces audit preparation efforts and costs by up to 80% by automatically generating pre-configured reports for a wide variety of regulations including PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, NERC, and many more.

Over 1,800 leading organizations, including 20 of the Fortune 50, have relied on AlgoSec to automate and orchestrate network security policy management across their cloud, SDN, and on-premise networks.
