Algosec Incident Response

Tie Incident Response to Business Processes, Prioritize and Automate Remediation

SIEM solutions collect, correlate and analyze the logs generated by your technology infrastructure, security systems and business applications. The Security Operations Center (SOC) team uses this information to identify and flag suspicious activity for further investigation. However, given the vast amount of data many of these alerts are false alarms.

This research report uncovers key trends and best practices for managing network security across on-premise data centers and the public cloud.

Vulnerability solution brief

Solution brief: Vulnerability assessments

Assess and prioritize vulnerabilities from the business perspective

Vulnerability management has always been a cornerstone of a sound information security program, but traditional scanners uncover too many vulnerabilities for any business to adequately address. Additionally, vulnerability information is typically presented for IP addresses and servers, and not in a context that business owners can understand. Given the number of vulnerabilities across the network, effectively prioritizing risk and remediation efforts based on the business application and existing firewall risks has a major impact on security and business productivity.

Application-centric vulnerability management

AlgoSec AppViz integrates with leading vulnerability scanners to map vulnerabilities with their associated data center applications, including their servers and complex connectivity requirements. Organizations can view network vulnerabilities with the business in mind. As application components, connectivity requirements, and vulnerabilities frequently change, AlgoSec ensures organizations have the most up-to-date and accurate information to prioritize risk. VULNERABILITY MANAGEMENT

Key benefits

  • Map vulnerabilities and severity levels to business applications
  • Ensure the most effective prioritization of vulnerabilities with application context
  • Improve accountability by enabling business owners to “own the risk”
  • Reduce risk of faulty firewall rules by associating the related vulnerabilities

Enable the business to “own the risk” 

Vulnerability information can be aggregated to provide an application-centric view, displaying all risks associated with a line of business. Security teams can then effectively communicate with business and application owners, giving them visibility so they can be accountable and “own the risk.”

own the risk

Seamless integration with network vulnerability scanners

AlgoSec seamlessly integrates with QualysGuard, Tenable Nessus Professional, and Rapid7 Nexpose vulnerability scanners to automatically pull in the vulnerability information including CVSS scores, details, and remedy recommendations.

Security rating per application

Get a holistic view of business risk. Vulnerabilities and their severity are scored across each application server as well as aggregated per application.

Continuously updated vulnerability scores

As application connectivity flows change, the vulnerability scores automatically update to ensure a continuous view of the application’s risk.

Visibility of un-scanned servers per application

AlgoSec also highlights all servers that have not been scanned for vulnerabilities within a specific time frame.

Tie vulnerability scanner data to risky rules

AlgoSec provides calculated vulnerability scanner data as part of the risky rules report. Now you can access vulnerability data, such as vulnerability scores and counts, at the level of each rule.. Tie Vulnerability Scanner Data to Firewall Risky Rules

Identify vulnerabilities before making a change

Before implementing a security policy change, identify the potential vulnerabilities that the change exposes. Be confident these changes are not posing new risks on the network. Vulnerability scanner data
