Unless you’re under a rock, you know that the WannaCry Ransomware cyberattack swept worldwide headlines last week.
Organizations scrambled to apply the latest Microsoft security patch to their computers to prevent the spread of the attack. It’s estimated that the ransomware attack hit more than 300,000 victims in 150 countries.
FireMon announced today, what we here in the company have known for a while now, 2011 was a spectacular year for us at FireMon and we are so proud that we want you to know. Some of the highlights of 2011 for us:
The best part of all of this great news though is that we think this really positions us to make 2012 an even better year. We are poised to really take off as a result of additions to both our team and product line up.
As the people who virtually invented the firewall management space, we are very excited to see firewalls, through the introduction of “next gen firewalls”, become hot again. Security device management and scenario based risk management are two of the most important issues facing organizations. We are uniquely situated to offer solutions and answers to these issues.
In the meantime congratulations to everyone on the FireMon team for a job well done. But most of all a huge thank you to our customers and partners, for without you all none of this would be possible. Thanks to all of you and here is to a great 2012!
So you’ve purchased a new firewall. Now what?
You’ve got to decide which access is allowed, which isn’t allowed and whether or not rules are compliant with internal and regulatory standards.
Things are running along smoothly and then the dreaded “change.” A user submits a new access request and the fun begins. Is this access necessary? Safe? Compliant? And what happens when it’s time to retire unused rules?
How Effective Security Management Can Help Teams Cover the Exponentially Increasing Gap between Technology & the Resources Available to Manage It
Security teams today are under tremendous pressure due to the rising frequency and impact of breaches and a business that wants to move faster and faster. The answer to both of these challenges has always been to add more technology and staff resources.
However, each new technology added creates complexity. More rules are created and more data is generated. As networks continue to evolve, this complexity will only grow. And while staff resources may increase, they will never match the exponential growth of technology.
FireMon calls this phenomenon The Complexity Gap and has set out to help security teams close it.
Join us for this webinar with Frost & Sullivan where we’ll explore the causes of “The Gap” and how workforce multipliers such as intelligence and automation help staff manage their security more efficiently and more effectively.
Helping Enterprise Security Teams Improve Resource Efficiency & Reduce Overall Risk Exposure
Firewall technology has come a long way since its initial, most rudimentary forms. Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) are the latest development, and organizations are accelerating adoption to the new technology. But NGFWs aren’t a fix-all solution.
