Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for data security and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, today announced the release of Netwrix Auditor for Network Devices as a part of the new Netwrix Auditor 9.7 platform. The application enables organisations to detect and investigate network security threats and is targeted at network specialists, IT administrators, IT managers and security analysts.
Netwrix Auditor for Network Devices enables organisations to reduce the risk of attackers taking control of critical network infrastructure or insiders inadvertently or deliberately jeopardising security. With the application, IT professionals can:
Detect and investigate scanning threats and other attacks
Promptly spot and investigate any outliers in the typically minimal user activity around network devices. This includes authorised attempts to log in directly or via VPN, as well as suspicious changes aimed at manipulating traffic to and from network or masking illegitimate access to critical systems.
Enforce strong and effective controls for network security
Comply with requirements of regulations and best practices frameworks such as PCI DSS, NIST and CIS Critical Security Controls by monitoring access to network devices and changes to their configurations.
Minimise costly network downtime
Reduce the time required to detect and respond to hardware issues and unauthorised changes that violate established network segmentation settings, jeopardising the performance and security of the network.
Netwrix Auditor is a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation that enables control over changes, configurations and access in hybrid IT environments to protect data regardless of its location. The platform provides security intelligence to identify security holes, detect anomalies in user behavior and investigate threat patterns in time to prevent real damage.
“Visibility into user activity across the entire IT environment is essential for keeping your sensitive data safe against cyber threats. Network devices are the first line of defence against attacks; if you fail to quickly recognise that one of them is compromised, it might already be too late to worry about the security of the data you store. Netwrix is glad to provide visibility into activity around network devices and help organisations spot and investigate potential threats to their network infrastructure, prove compliance with major standards and frameworks, and ensure uninterrupted network performance,” said Steve Dickson, CEO of Netwrix.
