My years of experience managing security programs, across a broad spectrum of industries, has given me a greater understanding of how technology and people both play a critical role in influencing the overall security posture of any organization.
FireMon celebrated an amazing 2013 as noted in our recent press release. The company also held it's Global Sales Kickoff in mid-January, the theme of which was Building the Fire 2014. I thought I would share a couple of observations from the event with our blog readers.
First, the growth of FireMon was phenomenal to see! When I joined the company in August of 2011, I was the 21st employee at FireMon. Having the honor and privilege of being the emcee for the kickoff, I found myself looking out at 103 other FireMon employees on the first morning of kickoff. There was a palpable sense that the company was truly about to explode as our President & CTO Jody Brazil shared the explosive growth numbers that we experienced in 2013. This was reinforced throughout the kickoff as all divisions discussed the growth experienced both in sales, technology enhancements and in employees within each division.
Secondly, the future direction of FireMon was exciting to see. The product roadmap and vision for 2014 was laid out for the company, and the continued focus on real-time, proactive Security Intelligence reinforced FireMon's market-leading focus on security management and risk analysis. A number of new and exciting technologies and enhancements will be rolling out throughout 2014 within the FireMon Security Platform, and we are excited to share these with you as they come out.
Finally, the amazing culture of fun and teamwork that FireMon has built over the years was on display throughout the event. The FireMon Band, G Fish & Special Sauce, made their debut performance on the first night of the kickoff. The diverse talents of employees from Sales, Development and Executive Management were on display, accompanied by sing alongs and dancing from the entire company. A small sampling of the band is below:
FireMon is on a phenominal growth curve. We entered 2014 with 56 open positions around the world. While we have filled a number of them, there are still openings available. If you would like to be a part of a fun, dynamic, winning culture on the cutting edge of Security Intelligence, we invite you to join us as we Build The Fire in 2014.
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.
En la actualidad, uno de los retos principales es preparar las redes de seguridad, no sólo para enfrentar las amenazas, sino también para enfrentar los cumplimientos. El día 26 de enero se publicó en el Diario Oficial la LEY GENERAL DE PROTECCIÓN DE DATOS PERSONALES EN POSESIÓN DE SUJETOS OBLIGADOS.
¿Está tu red preparada?
¿Cuentas con los procesos necesarios para el cumplimiento?
En esta era digital los datos personales de nuestros clientes y proveedores pasan por una red y se almacenan en una base de datos. Éstos, por ley, deben protegerse por medio de sistemas y procesos. Uno de los objetivos de esta ley es establecer las condiciones de tratamiento de datos personales y fomentar la cultura de protección.
La Ley de protección de datos es mucho más que un simple aviso de privacidad; esta ley describe derechos y obligaciones que de incumplirse pueden ser penalizados. Asiste a este Webinar para conocer más y prepararte. Te mostraremos:
In the fall of 2016, we sought the answer to a very simple question: What benefits do users who have a firewall management tool deployed with their firewalls see over nonusers? To find out, we commissioned Forrester Consulting to survey 188 IT security decision makers.
In their study, “Automate Zero Trust Policy & Enforcement,” Forrester Consulting found that organizations with firewall auditing and configuration tools realize more benefits that those without, including:
In this webinar, guest Speaker Josh Zelonis, Senior Analyst with Forrester, will review and discuss the results of the study with FireMon CTO Paul Calatayud who will bring his own experiences and best practices for deploying firewall management tools to improve productivity and reduce risk.
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.
