Nipper Enterprise for routers, switches & firewalls

Continuous Security &
Compliance Assurance at Scale

Minimizing network infrastructure attack surface with continuous monitoring of routers, switches and firewalls for security control and RMF compliance

Bringing the Power and Accuracy of Nipper to the Entire Enterprise

Designed to assure network security and compliance, in accordance with vendor device-hardening best practices, Zero Trust segmentation, and control and risk management frameworks - Nipper Enterprise delivers fast, accurate visibility of configuration posture at scale.

Network owners use Nipper Enterprise to increase the coverage and cadence of assessments, evidence continuous compliance with military and industry regulations, and minimize their attack surface via MITRE ATT&CK® misconfiguration prioritization.

Identifying and Addressing Configuration Drift, in Real-time

Automating an inside-out view of security and compliance vulnerabilities across network infrastructure – Nipper Enterprise enables risk-prioritized remediation to shut down attack vectors that pose real-world threats to the enterprise.

Configuration drift detection

Gain immediate awareness of any device configuration changes, providing assurance that planned network changes have not created new vulnerabilities as well as alerting to unplanned changes (indicators of compromise).

Automate snapshot views, prioritized for risk, of the security and compliance posture of every router, switch and firewall in a Configuration Management Database (CMDB) on a monthly basis or at a more frequent cadence as required.

Check the CMDB for configuration changes and automatically trigger an audit of those changed files for a proactive way to assess the impact of configuration drift as it occurs, without the need for direct, credentialed device access.

How it works

Stateless and passive, Nipper Enterprise is a horizontally scalable, agentless web-based application that is accessed through modern web browsers to support a range of internal and external use cases.


Flexible Deployment

Flexible Deployment
Nipper Enterprise can be deployed either on-premise with an OVA, enabling deployment in offline environments, or on a virtual private cloud with an AMI.

Enterprise Integrations

ICON - Integration
The solution provides Rest APIs and JSON outputs for integration with trusted 2FA, SIEM, SOAR, GRC and ITSM/trouble-ticketing solutions.

Stateless & Passive

ICON - Stateless & Passive - Minimal Top & Bottom Padding
Nipper Enterprise does not require access to devices as it connects to a CMDB or Git repository, to proactively monitor configuration drift.

Proactive Audits

ICON - Proactive Assessment
New or changed device configurations in the repository, trigger Nipper Enterprise to proactively fetch the latest (changed) configs for assessment.

Automatic Labeling

ICON - Automatic Labelling
Configuration repository labels are inherited automatically, with only labels passed to third-party solutions.

Customizable Scheduling

Customizable Scheduling (1)
Audits can be scheduled according to device labels indicating, for example, network criticality, location, device type, vendor, etc.

Configurable Parameters

ICON - Configurable Parameters
Detailed check descriptions and configurable parameters help ensure network checks reflect organizational policies and risk profile.

Agnostic Data Pipeline

ICON - Agnostic Data Pipeline
Risk-prioritized findings are provided in both human-readable and machine-readable formats, enabling integrations with third-party security and compliance tools.

Snapshot Reporting

ICON - Snapshot Reporting
Review ‘point in time’ security and compliance posture snapshots to forensically analyze the extent to which a network has been compromised following signs of an attack.

Air-gapped Assessments

ICON - Air-gapped Assessments
Assess and assure security and compliance, even in offline networks. Assessment methodology does not require direct access to devices, enabling deployment in offline networks.

Supported Devices

ServiceNow CMDB -Nipper Enterprise Integration

The Nipper Enterprise ServiceNow CMDB app, available within the ServiceNow app store, allows Nipper Enterprise users to integrate their ServiceNow CMDB with Nipper Enterprise via an authenticated read only API. This allows the solution to sync and provide continuous, passive and proactive security and evidence-based compliance assessments of networking devices - routers, switches and firewalls - at network scale. 

 So, you can: 

  • Continuously monitor for configuration drift, and 
  • Gain immediate awareness of configuration changes with automated risk analysis. 

The app continuously monitors and tracks changes to the segmentation data and configuration data. Change notifications are pushed to Nipper Enterprise via the app, allowing it to remain in sync and perform proactive assessments as and when the listed networking devices’ configurations change.
