RedSeal Selected by Betfair for Proactive Network Security

Global Online Betting Market Leader Embraces RedSeal Security Solutions

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - RedSeal Systems, Inc. today announced that online gaming giant Betfair has selected RedSeal's proactive network security assessment solutions to further strengthen its defensive infrastructure and protect critical information systems.

RedSeal empowers enterprise organizations to analyze any possible path of access permitted or denied across their entire network to understand real-world points of IT risk before they can be compromised.

Rather than addressing individual threats, aggregating log data or auditing the behavior of individual firewalls or routers, RedSeal models the interaction of all network defenses to provide detailed visibility into any gaps in security, empower continuous compliance with industry regulations and ensure protection of key business assets.

By providing management with the unique ability to identify exposure to real-world threats and create metrics to trend the efficacy of network security defenses over time, RedSeal allows organizations with complex infrastructure to understand and improve the effectiveness of their overall security strategy.

"The complexity and incessant change in today's enterprise networks has made it impossible for people to manage security without the aid of automation," said Dr. Mike Lloyd, Chief Technology Officer at RedSeal. "We're very pleased to list Betfair as a customer, as they are a high-profile leader in their industry who recognized RedSeal as a solution that's necessary to address today's real-world security challenges."

Facilitating Betfair's adoption of RedSeal was UK security systems integration specialists Armadillo, which has established a long-standing reputation within the gaming industry, along with other key verticals including the government and financial services sectors.

"RedSeal represents a tremendous opportunity for enterprise organizations to adopt a powerful, innovative new methodology for visualizing network security to bolster compliance and improve protection of assets and information," said Mark Newns, CEO of Armadillo. "We're proud to have helped bring RedSeal into a respected organization such as Betfair and believe that there's huge potential for this solution to advance network security and risk management across our entire customer base."
