Cloud Computing: AlgoSec and Security On-Demand Team Up On New Managed Security Offering

The new cloud-based managed security service integrates risk management, change control, and firewall operations efficiency into an easy-to-deploy product.

Security On-Demand, a hybrid cloud security provider, and AlgoSec, a network security policy management provider, has partnered on a cloud-based managed security service integrating risk management, change control, and firewall operations efficiency into a single managed security offering. Built on AlgoSec’s Security Management Suite, the new offering includes Policy Compliance Analysis On-Demand and ChangeFlow On-Demand.

This new offering includes Policy Compliance Analysis (PCA) On-Demand, a cloud-based managed firewall and security policy configuration analysis service. This service, which provides ongoing risk analysis monitoring on network systems and data, helps Security On-Demand take corrective action after identifying security flaws or vulnerabilities.

The new managed security offering also includes ChangeFlow On-Demand, a SaaS-based change management workflow product for security devices. Designed to provide workflow and management for firewall rule and router changes, ChangeFlow On-Demand incorporates information from the PCA On-Demand service, which includes the results of a firewall or router’s policy risk analysis before a change is approved.

The offerings work together in managing the network security lifecycle, aiding in compliance and operational efficiency. According to the companies, the offering reduces issues that typically occur with traditional managed security products, such as cost and testing procedures.

While interesting for SMB channel partners looking to bolster their own network security, it is unclear if VARs or partners from either company will be able to resell the hybrid offering.
