Security Best Practices & Security Rating Feature

As the complex enterprise network shifts to meet evolving business needs, configurations and policies need to be dynamically changed and enforced. As a result, security measures and countermeasures need to be provisioned and tuned over in a rapid fashion which adds to the ongoing pressure on network and security teams. Inevitable errors and misconfigurations are introduced, which fail to provide the trust and assurance that critical assets are being protected.

Based on Security Best Practices and Standards, the capabilities of the Security Fabric can be further leveraged through the Security Rating Feature. This feature provides a mechanism to continually assess the Security Fabric, validate that configurations are working effectively, and provide awareness of risks and vulnerabilities which may impact daily business operations.
