The Elemental Security Platform (ESP) is an advanced enterprise level security compliance automation system that is suited for any size organization — in the cloud, datacenter or on premise. ESP is the game changing self-adaptive policy enforcement driven cyber security solution that ensures critical digital assets are continuously in compliance hence always protected. As a highly integrated, comprehensive, scalable system the Elemental solution is the answer to effective information security, auditable compliance and risk management. It achieves this through automatic deployment, consistent monitoring and pervasive enforcement of cyber security policies and controls
Security Policy Management
Automation of security policies is a key component of the Elemental solution. ESP admins express and deploy policies simply byselecting from an extensive library of security controls and policy templates. Elemental also makes it simple to define target groups or security zones and automatically apply policies to all hosts in the group. As the activity of hosts and their security posture changes, group membership also changes automatically and the correct policies are applied accordingly, which makes the ESP system selfadaptive to a changing security context.
Security and Regulatory Compliance
Elemental provides the framework to achieve compliance with industry and government regulations, this includes an extensive policy library.
Auto-Discovery – the Elemental agents passively monitor the network for new computers. Unauthorized machines are quickly discovered and classified to identify their operating system, hardware details, and networking activity.
Protect Critical Resources
Layered Protection – ESP provides highly targeted, granular, and always-on host level access controls that ensures only secure and authorized systems are granted access to critical resources.
Elemental Security Operations Center
The Elemental system provides extensive reporting capabilities, including a suite of executive dashboards, detailed views and histories of compliance, risk and value, network traffic activity, and trouble ticket administration. The ESP reporting makes it easy for administrators to document the state of their networked systems and to identify changes that occur on individual systems or in the communications among systems.
The ESP programmatically determines the value and risk of machines based on a myriad of observed characteristics, roles, behavior, and usage information. The ESP quantifies the value and risk of all machines on the network, both managed and unmanaged, through the analysis of multiple factors including compliance, trust, system properties, the type and volume of networking activity, stored information, as well as the roles of machines and users. This capability identifies high value and at-risk systems enabling organizations to identify, mitigate, and manage IT risks.
