Skybox Network Assurance
Find hidden network security threats!
||Validate Network Control - Access compliance checks - Troubleshoot security & availability issues
Support: Check Point | Nokia | Juniper| Fortinet |Cisco | McAfee |Symantec
How it works:
Collect: Network Assurance automatically collects configuration data from all network devices including firewalls, routers, and load balancers as well as information on corporate security policies, and industry best practices.
Map and Analyze: The network analysis engine normalizes the data into a device configuration database and creates a model and a visual map of the network. Using the model, network access compliance, network changes, and availability issues are evaluated quickly with no impact to the live network.
Report and Act: The output provides useful information to several groups within the organization. The corporate security team verifies network compliance with corporate policies. The network operations team is able to balance network security and availability while planning error-free deployments.
