Shine a light on hidden network threats
Using a decentralized network management system to support a network environment for over 30,000 employees was a logistical nightmare for this network security team. By using Skybox Network Assurance, this organization was able to centralize the management of its network devices, easily troubleshoot network access issues, diagnose security incidents, and provide detailed network compliance reports.
Step 1 – Collect. Skybox® 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.
Step 2 – 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.
Step 3 – 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.
