Continuous Monitoring is Essential

"Government networks are changing every single day as agencies embrace digital transformation and shift to the cloud. However, if federal agencies are not continuously monitoring their network device configurations, they are in essence inherently trusting the operation of those devices.
This practice is not only counter to Zero Trust principles, but it also is proving to be a very soft target for bad actors to exploit and to gain a foothold into sensitive government systems and data."

Continuous misconfiguration
detection and response

Nipper Enterprise accurately assesses the security risk and compliance posture of up to 300,000 firewalls, routers and switches on an up to hourly basis, prioritizing findings based on the ease of exploitation and network impact of the misconfigurations detected.

The solution connects directly to network devices to access the configuration file (for continuous monitoring) or ingests previously extracted configuration (for compliance snapshots). Risk findings are produced in a variety of formats, including JSON and syslog, enabling integration with existing SIEM, SOAR and ITSM SOC and NOC solutions.
