AlgoSec Security Management Solution v 2017.2 Links Cyber Security Vulnerabilities with Business Processes Subject to PCI-DSS; Extends Device Support for Cisco Firepower and Microsoft Azure

Ridgefield Park, NJ (August 29, 2017) – AlgoSec, the leading provider of business-driven security policy management solutions, today released the AlgoSec Security Management Solution version 2017.2. In this new version, AlgoSec intensifies its focus on delivering new capabilities that align security with business processes, and enabling business continuity and digital transformation by enhancing and extending support across the hybrid cloud and on-premise enterprise network.

Link Vulnerabilities to Business Processes to Support the Latest PCI DSS Requirements

AlgoSec 2017.2 uniquely maps and correlates security vulnerability data to their respective applications and processes within the scope of the PCI DSS audit. This gives users the information they need to focus and proactively prioritize any necessary remediation efforts based on business priorities and audit requirements. This data is presented in AlgoSec’s out-of-the-box PCI DSS report, making it easy for organizations to support requirement 6.1 of the PCI DSS v3.2 regulatory standard.

Extend Support Across the Hybrid Cloud and On-Premise Enterprise Network

With version 2017.2, AlgoSec enables organizations to define and enforce security across any heterogeneous on-premise and cloud platform, using a cohesive security policy to assess risk and compliance, as well as troubleshoot network topology issues and change management problems for the entire enterprise network.

Enhanced security device support in version 2017.2 includes:

  • Cisco Firepower: AlgoSec v2017.2 supports Cisco Firepower Next Generation Firewalls, including Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC) and Cisco Firepower Threat Defense. Support includes policy visibility, change monitoring, risk analysis, regulatory compliance, network connectivity/topology visualization and traffic simulations.
  • Microsoft Azure Network Security Groups Analysis: AlgoSec 2017.2 supports Microsoft Azure Network Security Groups. Support includes policy visibility, change monitoring, risk analysis, regulatory compliance, network connectivity/topology visualization and traffic simulation.

Out-of-the-Box Support for NERC CIP 6.0

With version 2017.2 AlgoSec adds out-of-the box support for the NERC CIP 6.0 regulatory compliance report, to support AlgoSec’s many customers in the electric and power industry.

“Network security must ensure that the organization’s applications drive the business. This is especially critical as organizations implement new digital transformation initiatives and migrate their business applications to the cloud,” said Edy Almer, VP of Product at AlgoSec. “This new version further extends AlgoSec’s business-driven security management automation capabilities that power today’s heterogeneous enterprise networks and the business applications that rely on it to maximize agility, while ensuring security and compliance.”
