Business applications rely on complex connectivity flows that span multi-cloud and hybrid networks. In order to quickly and securely provision or change network connectivity, network security operations teams need to understand and map these flows. They also need to be able to identify obsolete traffic flows that may act as a back door to unwanted or malicious traffic.
This is no easy task. It’s difficult to discover and map application flows across complex enterprise environments. There’s usually little to no up-to-date documentation. It can take months to gather this information. Additionally, it’s not always easy to understand and translate business requirements for connectivity into networking terms that can be securely implemented. Consequently, provisioning application connectivity can take weeks. With frequent change requests piling up, the lack of visibility into connectivity requirements causes outages and introduces unnecessary risk.
What you can do
Discover applications, provision network traffic, and change and securely decommission application connectivity
With AlgoSec you can discover, provision, change and securely decommission connectivity for business applications. AlgoSec automatically discovers and maps application connectivity requirements to the network infrastructure, and then translates requests for connectivity changes into networking terms that security and operations teams can understand, approve, and implement.
