SAN FRANCISCO, March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- (RSA Conference 2016, North Hall, Booth #3334) – AccelOps today announced an integration that will combine AccelOps patented analytics and monitoring capabilities with the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall, bringing together a more comprehensive and holistic single-pane-of-glass view of corporate networks, whether on-premises, virtual or in the Cloud.
- NOC and SOC analytics through a single pane of glass: AccelOps' patented unified network analytics software integrates, and cross-correlates, real-time data that has historically been managed in separate departments - Network Operations Centers (NOC) and Security Operations Centers (SOC). The integration provides a comprehensive view of the network to deliver real-time, contextual identification of threats to security, compliance and performance standards.
- Self-learning CMBD with auto discovery: AccelOps' self-learning Centralized Management Database (CMDB) automatically discovers devices (physical and virtual), applications and users connected to the network, and their respective interrelationships, establishing a baseline topology. Once the baseline CMDB has been established, the integration continues to monitor and track any changes to the environment, including Palo Alto Networks firewall data.
- Complete end-to-end network management and security solution: Analytics and data about every network device includes details from physical location to CPU usage, configuration changes and more, as well as Palo Alto Networks' firewall logins that are monitored, reported on and validated against trusted user policies. A simple-to-set-up, multi-tenant architecture provides managed service providers, security operations personnel and IT administrators with the ability to create virtual and logical reporting domains for more contextual oversight into departments or unique data domains.
- Real-time compliance management and reporting out-of-the-box: Hundreds of "out-of-the-box" compliance reports aid Palo Alto Networks users to quickly get the details they need in managing and auditing against compliance standards including PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOX, ITIL, FISMA, NERC-CIP and SANS Critical Control, to name a few.
Tom Kelly, AccelOps CEO, said: "Security is no longer just about protecting information – it is also critical in maintaining trust with customers and protecting a company's brand and reputation. With today's dynamic, data-driven businesses and the accelerated growth of Internet of Things devices, it is necessary to identify and address cybersecurity threats as soon as they occur. We look forward to sharing this combined value proposition with our customers and channel partners."
Terry Ramos, Palo Alto Networks vice president, business development, said: "Networks, cloud and endpoints continuously suffer from sophisticated and persistent attacks. The integration with AccelOps provides our customers with real-time threat knowledge and increased visibility synchronized with automated protection across layer 2 and layer 3 end points to effectively guard against today's advanced threats."
AccelOps is fundamentally changing the way organizations identify and manage threats, unifying network security monitoring and network performance analytics by providing unprecedented insight into the network. AccelOps virtual appliance software monitors security, performance and compliance in local and virtualized infrastructures, resulting in a unified view of the environment.
