Benefits

Integrating Cisco ACI with AlgoSec lets you:

  • Automatically design and push security policy changes to Cisco ACI by creating contracts and filters to enforce data center whitelist policy and to firewalls connected to the ACI fabric and to other network security controls in a multi-cloud environment.
  • Proactively assess risk in Cisco ACI contracts and recommend changes needed to eliminate misconfigurations and compliance violations – while making policy changes as well as periodically for the entire multi-cloud environment.
  • Application policy reflection of the data center’s underline security policies as implemented on firewalls and other security devices.
  • Reduce time and effort through security policy automation
  • Facilitate and automate network segmentation within the data center
  • Help avoid outages and eliminate security device misconfigurations
  • Simplify and reduce audit preparation efforts and costs

Key Benefits

AlgoSec’s Network Security Policy Management Solution supports the following use-cases on Palo Alto firewalls

img

End-to-end visibility of your network

Get holistic visibility across your entire network. AlgoSec provides complete visibility into tenants, EPGs, endpoints, and contracts in the ACI fabric. AlgoSec provides quick access to key findings via the AlgoSec App for the Cisco ACI App Center, and helps you stay informed of the device status on your network. Get a detailed change history for every firewall and other managed device, current risk status, and device topology.

Assess risks and maintain compliance

Proactively performs a risk assessment for the policies (contracts) defined in the ACI fabric and defined for firewalls in the fabric. AlgoSec also recommends the necessary changes to eliminate misconfigurations and compliance violations. Before enforcement, AlgoSec proactively assesses risks for new policy change requests to ensure continuous compliance. Additionally, AlgoSec automatically generates audit-ready regulatory compliance reports for regulations (PCI DSS, SOX, GDPR, and more) for your entire network, both within and outside of the entire ACI fabric.

Policy driven application connectivity management

Using AlgoSec for Cisco ACI, you can map application connectivity to ACI contracts and EPGs as well as in-fabric firewall policies, and migrate application connectivity to Cisco ACI. AlgoSec lets users visualize and instantly provision connectivity for business applications, as well as assess the impact of network changes on application availability to minimize outages. View risk and vulnerabilities from the business application perspective and recommend potential changes to the Application policies in the ACI fabric.
