AlgoSec BusinessFlow Automates Security Policy Management for Business Applications

Network Security Management Company Introduces Ground-breaking Solution to Centralize Visibility and Simplify Control of Business Application Connectivit

October 30, 2012



Boston, MAAlgoSec, the market leader for Network Security Policy Management, today announcedBusinessFlow, an innovative new product that automates security policy management for business applications and provides the crucial link between application connectivity requirements and the underlying security policy.

“Enterprise applications fuel an organization’s business, but network operations and application management are owned by different groups that have not had an effective way to bridge the gap between application connectivity requirements, network changes and the security policy,” said Avishai Wool, CTO, AlgoSec. “BusinessFlow provides these disparate departments with a centralized and automated way to simplify security policy management of business applications throughout their entire lifecycle by understanding network dependencies and their impact on the security policy.”

Effectively managing the complex connectivity requirements of business applications is a struggle for nearly every large organization. Now, with BusinessFlow, application deployment and ongoing connectivity updates can be executed at a fraction of the time and firewall rules can be safely removed when applications are decommissioned – without impacting the performance or availability of other applications or creating security risks.

Part of the AlgoSec Security Management Suite, BusinessFlow leverages AlgoSec’s Deep Policy Inspection technology and integrates with AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer for policy analysis, traffic simulation and visualization, and AlgoSec FireFlow for security policy change management.

Additional capabilities announced today include:

“Organizational networks and the applications using them are more complex than ever,” said Gartner Analyst Greg Young. “Having a more clear view of a network change on the application or service translates to a simpler security policy and fewer blocks of legitimate activity.”

BusinessFlow will be available in the first quarter of 2013. For more information on BusinessFlow please visit www.algosec.com.
