The steady stream of significant data security breaches at enterprises and government agencies hasn't slowed down one bit. Verizon's 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report concludes that "no locale, industry, or organization is bulletproof when it comes to the compromise of data." The report examined 53,000 security incidents, including- including more than 2,200 confirmed breaches spanning 65 countries. These breaches have impacted a variety industries. At the top of the victim-industry list are finance, the public sector, technology/information services, retail and healthcare. High-profile examples from each of these dominate the headlines on nearly a weekly basis. For every major cyber security event that becomes a mainstream news story, there are thousands of organizations dealing with the same issues and picking up the same pieces, just out of the spotlight. That's enough to keep even the most prepared and seasoned IT decision maker up at night.
According to the latest Gartner forecast, information security spending is expected to grow by 8% in 2018 to reach $96 billion. This proves that the default strategy for proactively preventing breaches is to throw many at the problem, hoping that by purchasing a wide array of security tools such as firewalls, malware and ADT prevention, the organization will be out of harm’s way. If the best, most expensive security solutions aren’t deployed properly, or network policies are poorly managed, an organization will inevitably still deal with disaster.
The reality is that enterprises remain more vulnerable and exposed than ever before due to incredibly complex networks with thousands of rules and objects distributed across hundreds of firewalls, routers and switches from different vendors, equating to nearly endless endpoints. Adding to this complexity is the increased implementation of hybrid clouds, which provide agility and cost-effectiveness but also heightens the risk of compromising network security and increasing the attack surface. Managing a secure network can no longer rely on outdated and manual processes, and when they are handled that way they become a revolving door to hackers despite the huge amounts of money spent on cyber security solutions.

- Reduce your attack surface by identify existing risky or non-compliant access and automate rule decommissioning
- Retain a state of optimal policy health and compliance by tracking and recertifying or eliminating violations against security policy
- Simulate access to identify vulnerable access paths of an attack (e.g. WannaCry) to assess your networks susceptibility to exploitation
- Eliminate misconfigurations by automating the provisioning and validation of changes to policy
- Segment your network to increase your control over network zones and identify vulnerable access for mitigation during a security incident
- Leverage supported integrations to extend automation to your security operations such as incident discovery, incident containment, and incident response.
- Provide visibility across the physical network, SDN, and hybrid cloud
