Security policy management solutions provider, AlgoSec, has signed Observatory Crest as the sole distributor of its network Security Management Suite in Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).
The agreement includes all three products within the suite: AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer, Fireflow, and BusinessFlow.
The product suite intends to simplify multi-vendor firewall management by automating policy analysis and change management across network security devices, including firewalls, VPNs, and proxies.
“Ever more complex network setups are not only a management nightmare but opened security holes due to device misconfiguration and poor change management process,” Observatory Crest director, Martin Christmas, said. “Obviously, the chance of firewall misconfiguration increases with the number and complexity of security policies for the mix of vendor products.”
As such, the partnership is designed to assist channel partners and clients in eliminating the complications associated with managing increasingly convoluted networks.
According to Christmas, a key component is the the single console view of groups of devices which helps administrators gain greater visibility into and tighter control of their security infrastructure.
