Sunnyvale, Calif., & Boston, Mass., –– Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of enterprise network firewall solutions today announced a strategic alliance with AlgoSec, the market leader for Security Policy Management. Through this partnership, Hillstone Networks has integrated its full range of firewall solutions with AlgoSec’s security policy management suite to enable joint customers to streamline and automate operations, enhance visibility and improve security, compliance and business agility.
Hillstone Networks’ next generation firewall solutions for the enterprise and data center discover abnormal traffic behaviors to identify advanced threats and slash risk before there’s any business damage. AlgoSec delivers an automated solution for managing complex policies across firewalls and related security infrastructure, to streamline security operations and change management, ensure continuous compliance, and deliver a tighter security policy that offers better protection against cyber-attacks.
Through this integrated offering, Algosec now displays Hillstone firewalls, including subnets and zones, on its interactive network topology map, providing end-to-end visibility.

Additionally, AlgoSec provides real-time monitoring and alerting on changes to registered Hillstone firewall rules to quickly uncover problems such as unauthorized or risky changes, and inefficient or unnecessary policies. AlgoSec can scale to support any large-scale heterogeneous distributed enterprise environment. In conjunction with Hillstone’s Intelligent Next-Generation Firewall, AlgoSec is a critical component to ensure a customer’s network is compliant for auditing purposes.
