SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--RedSeal Networks, the leader in network infrastructure security management (NISM), today announced the integration of its award-winning RedSeal Platform with leading trouble ticket and workflow solutions from ServiceNow and BMC Software. By providing seamless, coherent integration with these ticketing systems, RedSeal Networks enables organizations of all sizes to immediately enhance the overall security posture of their change management processes without requiring IT staff to learn a different ticketing or change management solution.
“The RedSeal Platform takes a holistic network-wide view in order to determine the impact of changes on security posture, rather than having to reactively analyze every change, or even worse, guess because of limitations of products that look at changes for only one technology type on the network.”
Security, risk management and networking operations teams face the daunting task of effectively, efficiently, and securely managing change management processes across the entire organization. With the RedSeal Platform, the change management processes can be made more cost-effective and secure.
“Companies need to be able to ensure that for every change that is made, internal security policies will not be violated and the network is not opened to new attacks,” said Parveen Jain, CEO, RedSeal Networks. “The RedSeal Platform takes a holistic network-wide view in order to determine the impact of changes on security posture, rather than having to reactively analyze every change, or even worse, guess because of limitations of products that look at changes for only one technology type on the network.”
In addition to making workflow processes and related decisions more secure, by integrating the RedSeal Platform with leading ticketing and workflow solutions, either on-premises or in the cloud, RedSeal Networks is also addressing a specific customer need by enabling companies to bring on a network infrastructure security management solution without having to make any changes to their processes and workflow system that they already have in place.
“It is no secret that companies of all sizes want and need to properly leverage existing technology investments, and that is no different when it comes to the use of trouble ticket systems and existing internal processes,” said Jain. “Rather than force the burden of adopting a proprietary trouble ticket system on customers, RedSeal utilizes an open approach so that our technology can be seamlessly integrated with any workflow system.”
The RedSeal Platform’s key integration benefits include:
- Adaptability and Future-Proofing: The RedSeal Platform can be used in mid-to-large size enterprises without struggling with performance and flexibility.
- Openness: Built on a REST API, the RedSeal Platform can be used with any workflow system and does not require companies to adopt yet another proprietary ticketing system.
- Cloud Ready: Out-of-the-box integration with ServiceNow supports companies who are moving to cloud-based IT process management.
- Comprehensiveness: The RedSeal Platform assesses risk and access policy compliance in context of the enterprise’s entire network infrastructure, including routers, firewalls, load-balancers and other network devices. This comprehensive NISM-based approach overcomes the security limitations inherent in best-effort methods that evaluate firewalls in isolation.
“Security technologies need to not only perform their advertised functions, but also need to be seen as business enablers across the IT organization,” concluded Jain. “By seamlessly integrating into existing workflow, the RedSeal Platform delivers its advanced security functions quickly and easily.”
