Real-time Visibility and Continuous Compliance

One of the world’s largest enterprises needed to gain real-time visibility into its complex global network and modernize policy management to improve agility and ensure compliance with stringent regional standards.

Use Cases

Enforce Compliance

Industry: Energy


Increased efficiency in policy change processes


Faster compliance reporting


Visibility into 300 firewalls and 500 routers & switches

The Challenge

The company wanted to be first to address a national initiative for improved cybersecurity, which called for near-continuous compliance. Standing in the way was poor visibility into a hybrid network of 300 firewalls and 500 network devices, manual processes to manage network policies, and minimal rule documentation. The inability to assess rule changes in real-time jeopardized compliance by hindering recertification and audit preparations.

The company sought to:

  • Automate network security management
  • Significantly increase visibility, fully orchestrate policy and rule management and recertification
  • Accelerate compliance reviews
  • Automate and streamline the company’s unique workflows
