What is most valuable?* Being able to visualize end-to-end access * Being able to create a network topology map as the network is being built. * Being able to understand the state of the network, measure resilience, verify compliance, and accelerate incident response.
How has it helped my organization?RedSeal helps you prioritize and allocate your scarce human and capital resources where they have the biggest impact to protect your most-valuable digital assets.
What needs improvement?* Integration with other security tools. * Have the ability to create custom reports: Currently, within RedSeal you only have the option to run the canned reports. A great improvement to the product would be able to create custom reports.

It allows me to ask "what if" questions regarding traffic flows. We use it to track the causes of alarms.

How has it helped my organization?Fairly regularly, there are alerts that are raised in security systems regarding traffic flows that violate security policies. We often use RedSeal to locate recent changes in configurations or routing paths that have caused the alarms. The faster we can do that, the faster we can assess and… more»
What needs improvement?The network mapping/visualization could be improved significantly. It’s pretty cumbersome to use and not very easy to visually drill down to something of interest. The performance seems slow as well.
What other advice do I have?Include both operational and administration training in the project, as it pays for itself by many factors.

RedSeal is crucial for vulnerability/network access audit reporting. I would like to see a faster, thinner UI.
What is most valuable?The Vulnerability and Risk Management feature is valuable to us for keeping the security posture up-to-date and conducting regular continuous audits.
How has it helped my organization?It helps in auditing customer access review and vulnerability review. Without RedSeal, it seems impossible to do vulnerability/network access audit reporting.
What needs improvement?There is room for improvement regarding customization and automation of reports. I would also like to see improved analysis time, and more attention to simplifying the product and making it more intuitive. Make the UI faster and thinner. More regression testing of new features needs to be done.

What is most valuable?The most valuable feature I enjoy that is provided by this security analytics platform is the ability to measure resilience. With our RedSeal Digital Resilience Score, we can measure, benchmark, and set targets to actively manage the digital resilience of our network and security infrastructure.
How has it helped my organization?With our RedSeal's security analytics platform we have built an accurate, up-to-date model of our organization's entire infrastructure and as-built network to visualize access paths. We prioritized what required a fix, and targeted existing cybersecurity resources on our most valuable assets.
What needs improvement?Although we are talking about a very robust platform, I would like to see the Windows compatible VM version come back. This is because I used v7.1.3 for Windows and it seemed more user friendly.
What other advice do I have?It is at the top of its class and Redseal provides world class support. RedSeal is a robust, sturdy and stable solution that will not only reveal vulnerabilities in your network structure but it will also point to all the affected connections allowing you to quarantine the affected areas without… more»

I recommend you consider this solution if you want to understand your network environment as it relates to configuration issues, host/node vulnerabilities and firewall configurations.
What is most valuable?The ability to create a comprehensive network map and tie it to vulnerability data. This was invaluable in providing critical context to remediation emphasis, planning and benchmarking.
How has it helped my organization?Besides remediation efforts, it provided a global view of the network that was unfiltered by any one group, specifically the networking staff.
What needs improvement?I did not like the Java dependency. The product needs to make use of HTML5 or something that is browser agnostic.
What other advice do I have?If you want to understand your network environment as it relates to configuration issues, host/node vulnerabilities and firewall configurations, then I highly recommend that RedSeal be considered. You might think you know your network and… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?I was not part of the selection process and to my knowledge I don't think any other products were reviewed. However, since then I have looked at similar products and to my understanding there is some comparable functions but not an exact… more»
