This SANS Tool Talk Webcast will cover how to:

  • Discover, map and migrate business application connectivity
  • Proactively analyze security risk from the business perspective
  • Automate network security policy changes - with zero touch
  • Link cyber-attacks to business processes

Managing your network security policy across on-premise firewalls and cloud security controls is a delicate balancing act. On the one hand you need to reduce risk by minimizing the attack surface, on the other hand you must enable productivity by provisioning connectivity for your critical business applications. However, network security policy management processes have always been complex, time-consuming, and riddled with errors. They dont have to be. On premise and in the cloud, you can simplify and automate network security policy management to make your enterprise more agile, more secure and more compliant all the time.

Manage your network security with a unique lifecycle approach to security policy management to ensure ongoing, secure connectivity for your business applications. 

Through a single pane of glass you can auto-discover application connectivity requirements, proactively analyze risk, rapidly plan and execute network security changes and securely decommission firewall rules - all with zero-touch and seamlessly orchestrated across your heterogeneous public or private cloud, and on-premise network environment.
