AlgoSec’s new product manages network objects in firewall, SDN and cloud platforms to securely accelerate connectivity changesAlgoSec, a global cybersecurity leader in securing application connectivity, has announced its new product, AlgoSec ObjectFlow, a network security object management solution for hybrid environments spanning cloud networks, SDNs and on-premises.
According to Rik Turner, principal analyst at Omdia “in the complex environments that ensue from modern architectures such as SDN, as well as hybrid and multi-cloud environments, there is a very real risk of overlapping objects, making their management from a security perspective a real headache. There is clearly the potential for automation to be applied to further streamline management.”
AlgoSec ObjectFlow offers the most comprehensive visibility and control of network objects across an entire hybrid environment. As a turnkey SaaS based solution, customers can leverage ObjectFlow’s advantages within minutes upon activation.
Professor Avishai Wool, AlgoSec CTO and co-founder states that ObjectFlow addresses a dire need in the market for optimal network object management as “most enterprise networks rely on a vast number of network objects that often refer to the same addresses in various forms, creating duplications and inconsistencies that can slow down changes to network connectivity and security policies. As a result, this leads to an increased risk of misconfigurations, outages and security breaches.”
Key benefits that ObjectFlow delivers to IT, network and security experts include:
- Single source of truth
ObjectFlow is a central repository of all network objects used in security policies, allowing customers to maintain consistency of definitions across the multiple management systems used by various vendors.
- Object discovery and complete object visibility
ObjectFlow helps enterprises tap into SDNs and firewalls to discover all the objects on a network. Unique naming conventions can be created and organized based on individual needs and from multiple vendors.
- Automation of object changes
ObjectFlow makes automation of object changes possible from a central location. With official vendor API Integrations, manual labor is avoided, allowing for changes to be made within minutes instead of days.
- Risk reduction
ObjectFlow provides full visibility and uniformity over network objects, breaking down organizational silos. With these processes in place, objects can be easily identifiable, allowing networks to be completely secure.
“Network security objects are the bread and butter of your network security posture,” said Eran Shiff, Vice President, Product of AlgoSec. “With ObjectFlow we give organizations a simple, effective way to manage their network security objects in a centralized object management solution. It helps IT teams to secure application connectivity and reduce the time spent by the security team, increasing efficiency across the board.”
