SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Gluware, Inc., the leader in intelligent network automation for the cloud era, and an ONUG Fall 2021 Thought Leadership sponsor, announced new security and compliance capabilities that extend the enterprise benefits of the Gluware Intelligent Network Automation solution. The capabilities in Gluware 4.2, the latest update to the company's intent-based, no-code/low-code automation suite, will enable enterprises to improve the implementation and maintenance of security and compliance by delivering an out-of-the-box solution with new applications for vulnerability reporting, config drift and audit, and syslog messaging.
According to the Cloud Security Alliance, network security is the top enterprise concern when adopting the cloud. Given the complexity and chaos introduced into enterprise networks by cloud adoption and digital transformation, Gluware 4.2 is designed to enhance enterprise IT and network teams' ability to maintain an aggressive security posture and audit confidence. Its newest capabilities include:
- Integration with the NIST National Vulnerabilities Database to correlate its multi-vendor vulnerabilities with devices in network infrastructure
- Enhancements to config drift and audit capabilities for more complex auditing of network configurations and evaluating compliance and security rules
- Updates to syslog messaging enabling messages related to automation activities to be sent to collectors to enhance visibility, auditing, and security
"Network breaches are extremely disruptive, especially when they result in downtime or the leak of sensitive information. Compliance is another concern as it can create heavy workloads for already stretched-thin IT and network teams," said Jeff Gray, CEO and co-founder, Gluware. "We've seen these issues play out in customer environments time and time again. It is so important that our intelligent network automation capabilities provide a powerful, reliable, and secure solution to quickly de-risk network environments out of the box."
