Northstar

 

Provides the visibility you need to track and reduce risk.
Know what you’re protecting​​.

You can’t secure what you can’t see

By leveraging data that already exists in the security and enterprise tools deployed in your environment, NorthStar provides the crucial visibility you need to quantify the scope of what is being protected and the exposures that represent the greatest risk to your business – all in a single pane of glass.

See your complete data clearly

NorthStar produces reliable and actionable security intelligence through interactive and configurable dashboards. With the flexibility for globalized and localized views, as well as granular, role-based access controls, NorthStar automatically keeps track of what’s changed over time and gives you the ability to drill down to the specific action items, even if you’re starting from a summary view.

Added accuracy WITHOUT adding agents.

We can ensure your data is comprehensive and accurate — without deploying any agents. How? NorthStar inherently assumes your data will be ‘dirty’, untrusted, and/or incomplete. Through our automated process, NorthStar ‘cleans’ the data by scoring and analyzing the quality of the information gathered ensuring only the most accurate data is presented. NorthStar applies your business rules to ensure results reflect the environment and security posture in easy-to-configure dashboards — the way YOU want to see it.

What makes NorthStar better?

NorthStar implements true continuous auditing and monitoring by providing near real-time and historical tracking of what things are — the state —  as opposed to what they are doing —  the activity.
