Continuous monitoring of network infrastructures
Skybox Security announced Skybox Network Assurance 6.0, a solution for continuous monitoring of network infrastructures.
New versions of FFIEC, PCI, FISMA and other regulations recommend that organizations put into place processes to systematically and frequently assess and remediate risks to network infrastructures. With Network Assurance 6.0, security managers have immediate situational awareness of potential threats to the network infrastructure, and can interact with security information through a network map interface.
Skybox Network Assurance 6.0 delivers network modeling and access path analysis, making it possible to check the configurations of thousands of network devices and provide answers to network access questions.
In a performance test of a network with 800 network devices, Skybox Network Assurance was able to determine all routes and destinations accessible from a given access point in less than ten seconds. In comparison, manual route troubleshooting can take a full day and alternative software solutions are 10-50 times slower.
The solution provides map-based controls, making it easy for network security managers to examine network topology from a birds-eye view or at the detailed device level. Map-based controls also support filtering, grouping and route troubleshooting from the network map.
Skybox Network Assurance addresses requirements for continuous monitoring, policy compliance, change management, and security risk management. The solution helps companies meet regulations such as: PCI 2.0, FFIEC, NERC CIP, FISMA, SOX/COBIT, HITECH Act, HIPAA and the National Infrastructure Protection Plan.
