Deployment of advanced security technologies can create the illusion of comprehensive protection, but all too often, there are subsequent changes to the infrastructure that can greatly influence the end results. The only way to know if your security components are working as the security architects intended is to continuously verify their functions, an arduous task unless network automation is applied. NetBrain understands the security intentions of your designers and allows it to be part of your standard operating best practices- through continuous automation.
Continuous Security Policy and Zone Enforcement
By understanding what’s expected of each of your security components when deployed and then continuously verifying that these still exist, you can defend your organization’s security architecture and its implementation.
NetBrain protects your most valuable assets through continuous and automated verification of enterprise-wide and granular security policies, access controls, dynamic routing schemes, and edge access restrictions.
Rethink Network Security with Intent Enforcement
Verify network connectivity as a function of all of the security components to assure protection is in force as the architects intended.
Align Productivity and Security by Verifying Intents
Ensure the interaction between devices, users, and data conforms to the security architects’ intended access-control policies.
Automate Enforcement of Security Intents
Network design Intents add intelligence to maintain baseline security policies automatically.
Design Compliance, Always!
When it comes to network security, design compliance is everything. Modern infrastructures have broad attack surfaces that require a continuous verification of accessibility.
Continuously Audit Your Network’s Compliance
NetBrain’s automation engine keeps network device configurations, connectivity, and access policies in check with your intended design.
Identify and Prevent Compliance Drift
Stop Risks from Becoming Widespread Problems
Pre-define security rules to use network intent to remediate issues before they impact your business.
Isolate Network Devices, Quickly
When your SIEM or IDS/IPS solution detects malware or ransomware, every second gives the malicious code time to infect more devices. NetBrain enables you to quickly isolate all involved network devices in the vicinity, allowing time to properly resolve abnormalities while in quarantine.
Locate Network Devices in Seconds
With just the IP, MAC address, or DNS name, NetBrain’s One-IP Table quickly helps your team pinpoint the exact location of any network device, right down to the switch port it is connected to.
Visualize Network Neighbors
Create a visual que of the device and its network neighbors and a map you can export.
Stop Layer 3 Threat Spread
Shunt traffic, disable ports, or update policies to quickly stop attacker traffic and data exfiltration at the speed of a machine so you can take immediate action.
Map the Attack Path
View and share a map of the attack path of potentially malicious traffic with layer 2 contexts.
Diagnose the Threat Path
See potentially malicious traffic along any path with context including L2 devices and their conditions.
Compare the Attack Path Against its Benchmark
View configurations for changes by comparing to design or intent-based benchmarks, called Golden Paths.
Visualize Infrastructure Changes
Visualize infrastructure changes across the hybrid network and identify all impacted devices, services, and application dependencies – in seconds.
Simplify Audit Preparation
Leverage NetBrain’s single source of truth based on its end-to-end network auto-discovery technology. NetBrain’s advanced Digital Twin technology enables real-time Dynamic Maps to be generated and verified at any time.
Auto-Discover the Hybrid Network
Generate real-time dynamic maps of the network from edge to cloud anytime on the fly.
Ease preparation for compliance audits by saving and exporting dynamic maps natively to Microsoft Word or Visio including all diagnostic data, configuration files, and routing tables.
The Human Error Factor
Ensure design intentions for network device changes and the resulting connectivity changes are preserved. Even successful device changes can result in unintended consequences. Leverage rollbacks to quickly restore any previous configuration.
