RedSeal Launches Remote Administrator Managed Service to Augment Customers' Security Teams

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RedSeal, the leader in network modeling and cyber risk scoring, today introduced RedSeal Remote Administrator, a new managed service to augment customers’ security teams, make network situational awareness more widely available, and help customers increase their digital resilience.
Most enterprises have dozens of disparate security products in their environment, each requiring administration and maintenance. At the same time, they face a cybersecurity skills gap: there are not enough qualified people to operate even the products they have.
RedSeal Remote Administrator addresses these issues by becoming an essential part of an organization’s security team.  As part of the service, a dedicated network security engineer will maintain and administer RedSeal’s network modeling and risk scoring platform. Customers will always have a single, up-to-date model of all their network environments – including public cloud, private cloud and physical assets – to validate their security, accelerate their investigation, and improve their productivity.
Specifically, RedSeal will provide Remote Administrator customers with the necessary resources to maintain their deployment, keeping it current and in exceptional working order. This includes a daily cadence of reviewing the network model, ensuring that data collection tasks are working, maintaining the topology map to see that new devices are properly placed, providing scheduled reports, and making certain that the platform is performing as expected.
“Security practitioners need to understand how everything is connected in their networks in order to defend them.  It’s essential for our customers to have an updated and working model so they can continuously improve their security,” said Kurt Van Etten, chief product officer at RedSeal.  “RedSeal Remote Administrator augments an organization’s security team to continuously deliver an accurate model.  The service allows customers to benefit from RedSeal situational awareness—without the need for additional headcount or in-house expertise. They can quickly get the information they need.”
Organizations simply need network access (VPN and Jumpbox) to get started with RedSeal Remote Administrator. The service is available internationally and RedSeal Remote Administrator representatives are on call Monday to Friday during U.S. business hours.
