"Without evidence from assurance processes, it’s very difficult to make credible risk-based decisions."

Achieving greater security from consistent compliance 

Financial gain continues to be the top motive for cyber-attacks (Verizon, 2019). So, with large attack surfaces, mission-critical facilities and highly valuable data – it’s no surprise that financial and banking institutions are continually at risk of cyber-attacks.

Add to this digital transformation initiatives, designed to better serve customers and frequent regulatory changes to keep them safe – and cybersecurity leaders in the BFSI sector are faced with increasingly complex, mission-critical networks to protect.

To protect the vital finanical infrastructure and services on which industries, governments and societies depend, Nipper can help improve the security posture of critical networks to develop greater cyber resilience and verify that firewalls, switches and routers meet the cybersecurity standards, with accurate, automated compliance assessments.

Nipper Enterprise is now providing this capability at scale, enabling the assessment of up to 300,000 devices on an up-to-hourly basis, and the roadmap to automatically remediate vulnerabilities and insecure configurations in order to help organizations establish a defendable network.

Accurate, risk-based vulnerability management:
  • Reduce audit times by up to 80%
  • Detect all misconfigurations, even in air-gapped environments
  • Prioritize security risk by criticality
  • Improve MTTR with device specific remediation advice and command-line fixes

Automate RMF assurance:

  • Assure compliance for PCI DSS and other RMF
  • Assessor-ready reports of compliance with 94% of PCI testing procedures relating to network devices 

    Establish a defendable network:

    • Accurate RMF snapshots and real-time evidence of compliance
    • Continuous assessment of firewalls, switches and routers
    • Daily configuration drift monitoring
    • Roadmap to playbook-controlled auto-remediation

    Improving the security and compliance posture of firewalls, switches and routers across the finanical sector.

    PCI DSS is leading the way in network security best practices with the launch of v4.0, which boasts some of the most significant changes to the standard since 2004, reflecting the increase in risk the industry now needs to mitigate. In fact, the council has been leading the way for a long time, having recommended segmentation of the Cardholder Data Environment in many of it's previous iterations. Of course, segmenting other critical parts of the network beyond the CDE will ssssignificantly reduce non PCI-business risk associated with a breach of the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of critical operational systems and/or data. As well as CDE segmentation, v4.0 also recommends:

    • Risk assessing all types of devices - including firewalls, switches and routers
    • Where automation allows, all devices - rather than a sample – should be compliance assessed
    • It promotes security as a continuous process, and that the risk assessment should drive the periodicity of checks.
    • Where daily risk assessments are not achievable due to resource or technology constraints, at the very least, device configurations that have changed, need to be checked.
    • To deliver security from compliance it is necessarcy to fix what is found in risk-prioritised order

    This kind of proactive security is key to protecting networks from preventable attacks. It acknowledges that security within the network boundary is as important as the security on devices forming the perimeter. The aim being to verify that all devices maintain a secure configuration that matches both network policy and functional intent, at all times.

    Improving the security and compliance posture of firewalls, switches and routers across the finanical sector.

    As security within the network perimeter is as important as the security on devices forming the perimeter, validating that every firewall, switching and routing device maintains a secure configuration that matches both network policy and functional intent is now a daily goal.

    The capability to monitor and mitigate configuration drift in real-time – and address critical misconfiguration as they arise – Nipper solutions can help ensure that those within the finanical sector are effectively managing their cyber risk.
