AlgoSec Introduces the Industry's First Firewall Management Solution for Virtualized Environments

AlgoSec Security Management Suite Automates Analysis, Auditing and Change Management for Hypervisor-Level Firewalls

ROSWELL, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/11 -- AlgoSec, the market leader for Network Security Policy Management, today announced the industry's first solution for managing firewalls in virtual environments. AlgoSec Security Management Suite simplifies hypervisor-level firewall management by automating the analysis and change management workflows, enabling organizations with hybrid environments to enhance their IT operations, security and compliance.

"The dynamic nature of virtualization, especially the rapid provisioning of new applications and desktops across data centers, presents a new set of security challenges for IT organizations," said Eric Ogren, principal analyst of the Ogren Group. "Firewall rules management software is a critical must-have capability to control access and ensure tight security for companies evolving from physical to virtual environments."

More organizations are virtualizing their network environments to consolidate infrastructure and save money, but struggle with the complexity of managing hypervisor-level firewalls that extend the security policy to traffic flowing between virtual machines. AlgoSec Security Management Suite today introduces support for Check Point Security Gateway Virtual Edition, in addition to its existing support for a wide variety of physical firewalls, enabling organizations to automate analysis, auditing and change management workflows.

"Managing the configuration of physical firewalls is complex, as IT professionals must pour through hundreds to thousands of rules -- across different geographies and firewall vendors," said Avishai Wool, CTO, AlgoSec. "This complexity is further extended through the implementation of firewalls for virtualized environments, so it is imperative that organizations can effectively manage firewall policies in hybrid environments -- to reduce risk from misconfigurations, improve IT and business productivity and ensure compliance."

AlgoSec Security Management Suite integrates AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer, which automates firewall, router and VPN audit and analysis, with AlgoSec FireFlow, which automates the policy change workflow process, from submission and design to risk analysis, implementation, validation and audit. AlgoSec Security Management Suite with support for Check Point Security Gateway Virtual Edition is available immediately. For more information please visit www.algosec.com
