Roswell, GA – AlgoSec, the market leader for Network Security Policy Management, today announced a key partnership with Palo Alto Networks, the network security company. The AlgoSec Security Management Suite is now fully integrated with Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Enterprise Firewalls, to deliver the first solution that automates the change management workflow for application and user-aware security policies, in addition to providing automated policy optimization, risk assessment and compliance reporting.
“Organizations are increasingly deploying Next-Generation Firewalls with granular control of network traffic to prevent sophisticated attacks. However, managing these increased controls can result in more complexity, underscoring the need for intelligent automation,” said Nimmy Reichenberg, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, AlgoSec. “Through our partnership with Palo Alto Networks, AlgoSec enables organizations to more effectively realize the benefits of next-generation firewall technology, streamlining operations and maintaining a secure and optimized policy.”
The AlgoSec Security Management Suite automates firewall management and provides IT with visibility and control of complex, multi-vendor networks. It combines AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer and AlgoSec FireFlow, which automatically analyze and optimize complex policies to improve operational efficiency and compliance, reduce risk, and streamline the security change workflow. In 2011, AlgoSec boasted YoY growth of 95%.
This partnership enables Palo Alto Networks customers to automate the management of application and user-aware policies over time, and significantly reduce the burden and potential risk of change requests.
“More organizations are turning to Palo Alto Networks to more effectively prevent today’s application-based threats without impacting organizational productivity,” said Punit Minocha, vice president of business and corporate development, Palo Alto Networks. “With this partnership, Palo Alto Networks customers can easily incorporate AlgoSec into their process for automating policy management, including the entire change request workflow, while ensuring a strengthened security posture.”
This solution will be demonstrated at RSA in AlgoSec’s booth #344.
