SAN MATEO, Calif., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- RedSeal Systems, Inc., the leading provider of security posture management solutions, today announced that GSN: Government Security News has recognized RedSeal Network Advisor as a finalist in its Homeland Security Awards competition for the second year in a row in the Security Compliance, Auditing, and Vulnerability Management Solution category.

The Homeland Security Awards finalists were selected by a panel of objective and independent judges.  These awards were created by Government Security News to salute dedicated officials and their agencies and departments at federal, state and local levels of government who have created effective and cost-efficient security programs.  They were also created to salute the outstanding vendors of IT and Physical Security products who have introduced innovative, amazing technologies and products that protect our nation and its people 24/7.

According to Adrian Courtenay, Chairman of World Business Media, LLC, "the entries from the vendors of IT and physical security products were dazzling in their technological brilliance, reflecting the great public-private partnership that keeps our homeland safe and secure."

RedSeal Network Advisor is software that automatically assesses the security posture of a network so organizations can strengthen their cyber-defenses.  With the ability to continuously gather and analyze the end-to-end interaction of firewall, router and load balancer configurations, RedSeal Network Advisor allows an organization to comprehensively identify security holes in its infrastructure that could be exploited--before they are discovered by hackers.  RedSeal also validates that corporate network security policy is enforced and enables rapid remediation of unintended exposures.

"The federal government took some important steps recently to enhance its cyber security requirements, moving away from annual assessments and emphasizing the need for continuous network monitoring as part of FISMA reform," said Steve Dauber, Vice President of Marketing at RedSeal Systems.  "RedSeal's security posture management software plays an important role in fulfilling FISMA compliance by offering an automated approach to identify security holes, proactively protecting our nation's IT networks against sophisticated cyber attacks.  We're proud to once again be recognized by Government Security News as a finalist in this prestigious competition, among the nation's top IT security companies."

The Winners will be presented their Awards at a gala Awards Dinner on the evening of Monday, November 8th at the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C.
