Waltham, Mass. (PRWEB) September 14, 2016
Cryptzone, a provider of dynamic, context-aware network security software, today announced plans to unveil its AppGate integration with HPE Helion OpenStack, an enterprise-grade distribution of OpenStack® software, the leading open source cloud platform.
AppGate is a dynamic, secure access control platform that dramatically reduces the attack surface for all users across applications and data hosted both on-premises and in the cloud. AppGate provides dynamic, user-centric access control, creating an individualized network ‘segment of one’ where user access is automatically adjusted based on simple policies, and which automatically adapts to user, and environmental changes. Integrating with HPE Helion OpenStack, AppGate helps to improve security, streamline security operations, and provide deep insight into user access activity.
“Cloud environments are dynamic and complex, and managing user access is a continual challenge,” said Jason Garbis, Vice President of Products for Cryptzone. “Cloud platforms manage access control via IP addresses, rather than users. As a result, organizations end up with over-privileged users, unmanaged vulnerabilities and a never-ending manual configuration change treadmill. And, they can’t easily meet security or compliance needs, which ultimately poses a barrier to adoption of cloud platforms.”
AppGate ensures that users can only access those network services and applications to which they’re specifically entitled, and makes all other network resources completely invisible. It establishes a secure, encrypted tunnel between users and authorized network resources. This closes the door on attackers without impacting business user productivity, while providing visibility of user actions on the network.
By taking a user-centric approach to access, and leveraging user context and simple policies to determine which cloud resources each user can access, AppGate streamlines security and extends the value of HPE Helion OpenStack implementations.
In addition, Cryptzone will unveil its integration of AppGate with HPE Security ArcSight. AppGate supplies ArcSight with a rich view of user activity on the network, powers better detection of anomalous behavior and enables automated remediation of user access.
