RedSeal Systems Launches Network Security Assurance Software to Prevent Data Breaches  
SAM MATEO, Calif. —- To address the accelerating trend of data breaches worldwide, RedSeal Systems today announced RedSeal Network Advisor 4.0, the industry's first enterprise-wide network security assurance software. RedSeal Network Advisor continuously analyzes the end-to-end interaction of firewalls, routers and load balancers throughout an organization to comprehensively identify security holes in the infrastructure. RedSeal also validates that corporate network security policy is enforced, enables rapid remediation of unintended exposures and demonstrates regulatory compliance to auditors. "Many enterprise networks are burdened by complex sets of access rules distributed across firewalls, routers, and other infrastructure devices. With every new rule or rule change there is the potential to create a gap in the network's defense and violate an enterprise security policy or a mandated control," said Phil Schacter, vice president and service director for The Burton Group's Security and Risk Management Strategies.
