By integrating Lumeta’s discovery capabilities as a foundation, the Allgress solution will be able to provide more comprehensive risk management capabilities and give CISOs the true risk impact of each corporate initiative
Somerset, NJ and Livermore, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2014
Lumeta Corporation, the leader in network situational awareness, announced today that its IPsonar and ESI solutions are now seamlessly integrated with the Allgress Insight Risk Management Suite. Lumeta provides comprehensive visibility into all pathways and connected devices on a network, including leaks and vulnerabilities – information that the Allgress solution will aggregate with additional data and turn into meaningful, actionable risk-specific intelligence.
Lumeta’s network situational awareness solutions use active scanning and passive listening techniques to discover all network connections and devices – including previously unknown networks, leak paths, and the network perimeter. Gathering comprehensive intelligence on a network is a foundational step to any security and risk management program.
The insight uncovered by Lumeta is fed into the Vulnerability Management module of the Allgress Insight Risk Management Suite, and then shared across all integrated Allgress product modules for analytics, trend analysis and to better understand attack vectoring.
Allgress enables IT risk and security professionals to apply business context to information technology risk management so executives can rapidly make informed decisions that align with business priorities. Allgress collects data from disparate enterprise risk silos to pull together a unified view of information security and compliance risk posture across a global network. Covering the areas of vulnerability management, incident management, risk analysis, and security and compliance assessment, Allgress delivers highly visual and intuitive heat maps and compliance reports that translate that data into the language of business.
“By integrating with Allgress, we are helping our customers align IT risk management in the context of supporting business objectives,” said Matt Webster, chief technology officer of Lumeta.
Key capabilities of the integrated solution include:
- Centralized data store that allows you to consolidate and filter all vulnerability scanning data
- Demonstrate in real time the true impact of changes on the security profile
- Trending and time-series views that reveal vulnerability volumes, severity levels and mitigation progress
- A visual and comprehensive picture of holistic risk
- Compare network segments to see where threats are most prevalent in order to prioritize resource allocation
“By integrating Lumeta’s discovery capabilities as a foundation, the Allgress solution will be able to provide more comprehensive risk management capabilities and give CISOs the true risk impact of each corporate initiative,” said Gordon Shevlin, chief executive officer of Allgress.
The Lumeta connector is available now ‘out of the box’ within Allgress v5.1; no separate file package is required nor is there additional cost. (Current clients of Allgress simply need to upgrade to v5.1 to take advantage of the integration functionality.)
