Configuration security & compliance at scale

Zero Trust

Continuously verify that networks are adequately segmented and devices are managed and compliant to IT security policies.

Configuration Security: Zero Trust Baseline Protection

Zero Trust assumes a hostile environment, where networks have been breached and are under attack. It’s why preventing lateral movement (with deny all/permit by exception configurations) inside the perimeter - where 80% of network traffic exists - is considered a ‘baseline protection’ for ZT.

And as switches and routers are as important as firewalls in maintaining effective segmentation, verifying, rather than trusting that devices maintain a secure and compliant configuration is a continuous requirement.

Evidence continuous compliance with STIGs

Determine the security and compliance state of every network device, every day, with ‘pass/fail’ evidence of compliance with vendor hardening guides and security controls.

Minimize risk of privilege escalation and unauthorized lateral movement

Assure networks are effectively segmented through advanced contextualization of device settings, stopping the proliferation of APTs, ransomware and insider threats.

Reduce the attack surface

View and remediate misconfigurations through an attacker’s lens to help prevent incidents, respond to the most critical ones first, and analyze levels of compromise.

Configuration Security Fundamentals

Stopping configuration drift before it compromises.

Federal agencies face several challenges as they transition towards Zero Trust. Recent research highlights the current approach to configuration security is a major one…
