FAA to Benefit from Discovery of Additional Network Connections Identified by Lumeta IPsonar
SOMERSET, N.J., Jan. 8 - Lumeta, the leading provider of network assurance solutions for enterprises and government agencies, today announced that they have successfully integrated Lumeta IPsonar® data into a leading SIM platform. Other SIM customers will benefit by having additional security events, for example previously unknown network connectivity and improperly configured network defenses, discovered by IPsonar and then automatically reported into the SIM solution. This will allow customers to easily correlate, prioritize and mitigate network security risks discovered by IPsonar using the SIM solution's correlation and reporting capabilities.
The Lumeta IPsonar SIM connector allows customers to run IPsonar scans and automatically integrate the discovered hosts, routers, leaking devices and open service ports into the SIM solution. From there, the SIM can correlate the events according to the customer's business rules, presenting them with a prioritized list of threats including context-sensitive detail. The joint solution accelerates remediation, reducing cost and risk while providing an additional level of intelligence and prioritization for all detected threats.
The Federal Aviation Administration assisted in the development of this integration as an early trial customer, and will be among the first to benefit. The agency was attracted by the opportunity to bring Lumeta's unique data in order to create an advanced network threat assessment solution.
IPsonar discovers every asset on a network, including assets not currently under management, visualizes the connectivity between assets and networks to uncover risk patterns and policy weaknesses, and enables network and security teams to bring unknown assets under management while deploying security technology more effectively to mitigate risk. Using IPsonar, IT organizations can deploy new business services, maintain existing service levels and minimize network security risk to ensure compliant operations.
"Our network assurance solution is able to measure the effectiveness of security policies and controls in a dynamic infrastructure, while at the same time discover the complete picture of network connectivity - these unique capabilities are a perfect addition to a leading SIM reporting engine," said Michael Markulec, executive vice president, technology and operations. "The ability to prioritize threats is critical for managing the networks of today's organizations. By providing the network perspective, client can now remediate risks that were previously unknown or very challenging to uncover."
