Network risk scorecard and pre-configured comparisons
Lumeta Corporation, a provider of network discovery, mapping and network leak detection offerings, has unveiled an active network discovery offering Ipsonar, which includes advancements in the product’s discovery, visualisation and analysis capabilities.
Lumeta’s IPsonar features an integrated network risk scorecard, the Lumeta Network Index, to distill network discovery data across an enterprise network into a set of high-level metrics from four categories including network topology, network address space, network leaks, device fingerprints.
The scorecard displays items such as unknown networks, network leaks and perimeter router statistics to highlight priority areas of risk for remediation.
The Lumeta Network Index executive scorecard helps organisations quantify and compare levels of network risk over time; measure the effectiveness of security policies; and better understand the impact of network change on the state of the enterprise network as a whole.
Through a consulting engagement, the new scorecard mechanism can be configured to report on a variety of security and compliance metrics in support of internal network policy measurement or key aspects of regulations.
As part of Ipsonar’s Device Discovery module, Lumeta has added Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Certificate identification and HTTPS testing capabilities.
IPsonar Device Discovery SSL Certificate Identification allows users to proactively manage expiry, reducing the risk of SSL downtime; validate security compliance for online transactions, communications and Web-based applications; and identify expired certificates.
The latest release of IPsonar includes a comparison reporting feature, which allows users to compare any two reports, and highlights the differences between the results.
IPsonar is pre-configured with a group of common comparisons, such as unknown devices and total number of routers, and users also have the ability to create and modify their own comparison queries by setting parameters through the intuitive user interface.
Lumeta’s Ipsonar enhances the mapping capabilities to allow users to better interact with the way the map is displayed as well as to allow the map to be controlled in ways which are beneficial when exploring very large data sets.
