In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
Accurate visibility and context
The digital infrastructures for nearly all Global 2000 companies operate across physical, public cloud and private cloud networks. In fact, hybrid data centers are an increasingly popular answer for the fast deployment of new network infrastructure. As a result, enterprise security teams are faced with the daunting challenge of securing profoundly complex, and constantly changing networks.
The RedSeal network modeling and risk scoring platform is the only solution that addresses this universal challenge by capturing the complete, as-built network, from the inside out. It provides actionable intelligence and situational awareness across all network environments, which puts security management and decision making power right in the user's hands.
Faster investigation and incident response.
When an attack happens, RedSeal’s network modeling and risk scoring platform adds critical network context to incident investigation efforts. First responders get a detailed map showing paths between the suspicious host and all reachable assets. They can then drill down to understand the changes required to prevent that access, enabling decision makers to quickly protect the organization, wasting no time on guesswork.
Confidence to become and stay resilient
RedSeal delivers a critical benchmark - the Digital Resilience Score - to help security and IT understand and manage their ability to respond to and rebound from incidents.
The score takes into account the prevalence of high-risk vulnerabilities, device configuration issues, and network visibility gaps. With the insight teams can be confident that they’re wisely deploying and fine-tuning their existing cybersecurity resources and minimizing the impact of an attack.
It’s exceptional for use in the C-Suite too: as it’s a single security metric the board can use to confidently understand the resilience of their network, and the effectiveness of their existing cybersecurity investments in protecting business operations and value.
Trying to manage security without a network model is like trying to protect your country without clearly understanding your borders, where your high value assets are, and all the ways they are vulnerable to attack.
Central to this understanding is knowing the access paths to ones most valuable assets, and having the ability to quickly target cybersecurity resources where they will have the biggest impact.
RedSeal’s network modeling and risk scoring platform is the only solution that can analyze large enterprises’ complex networks across public clouds, private clouds and physical network environments, to create one holistic and easy-to-update, model. RedSeal’s platform gives customers a unified view of their entire hybrid datacenter in a simple-to-understand model. This accurate and up-to-date insight helps security teams validate their security posture, accelerate incident investigation and containment, and works with existing security tools as a force multiplier.
Case in point: for the DoD, the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) uses RedSeal to model and continuously monitor the infrastructure of the Joint Regional Security Stacks (JRSS). Redseal provides visibility into network segmentation and measures overall resilience, delivering risk-based situational awareness and helping to create resilient networks.
RedSeal also provides a Digital Resilience Score (similar to a credit score) that lets you instantly understand how your network is doing, see the impact of changes in your security posture, and look at trends. This insight is available through a smartphone application and the RedSeal dashboard, which provides a broader and deeper summary with easily accessed detail.
RedSeal’s network modeling and risk scoring platform is a trusted and critical component of cyber operations across the Global 2000, and more than 40 U.S. government agencies, including Department of Defense; the intelligence community; FEMA as well as civilian agencies, and state and local governments across the country.
