Mitigating Gartner’s Network Security Worst Practices

by

Welcome to our special blog series: Mitigating Gartner’s Network Security Worst Practices.

Over the course of more than 3,000 client interactions in the past year, Gartner has observed several common network security “worst practices.” The result is this great research paper titled “Avoid These “Dirty Dozen” Network Security Worst Practices”.

According to the report clients “often underestimate, or are even unaware of, the potential negative impact of these practices. CISOs should assume that their organizations suffer from at least some of these issues and work to avoid them. Avoiding these practices will improve security posture and increase network availability and user satisfaction. Furthermore, most of these practices can be achieved without making large capital investments.[1]”

Here at AlgoSec, we’re no strangers to observing the network security practices of the world’s leading organizations. We have also been fortunate enough to work alongside our customers to not only understand their challenges, but also to develop solutions that help them mitigate and even completely avoid these common pitfalls.

In this special blog series we’ll take a deeper dive into the network security worst practices identified by Gartner and, over the course of the next few weeks, examine how each of the 9 worst practices that we specifically address can be mitigated using automated security policy management.
