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.
The purpose of this document is to walk the user through new integration for collecting Security Manager Change Events into Immediate Insight.
Part A – Integration Pre-Requisites
Note: this integration requires Immediate Insight version app-2016-02-04 (or newer), which can be obtained by typing ‘update’ from the Immediate Insight CLI (internet connectivity required). Security Manager 8.2 or newer is required.
Immediate Insight and Security Manager must be configured with correct certificates so that they can exchange data. Here are the required steps:
Part B - Live Collection of Security Manager Events into Immediate Insight
To collect live Change events from Security Manager, you need to configure a Security Manager Collector in Immediate Insight. You will need valid web console admin level credentials & connectivity to Security Manager.
Login to Immediate Insight GUI,
Part C – Confirm Security Manager Change Events are coming into the system.
Go to the DataFlow -> Collectors screen
Scroll down to your new Security Manager Collector, and check that the Status says ‘running’ (it can take a minute or so to initially change from ‘Connecting’ to ‘Running’) – if it does not say ‘Running’ confirm your credentials, certificates, and network connectivity before proceeding.
If Status is ‘running’ you will see Security Manager Change Events show up as indicated by the ‘Records’ counter.
Note: depending on how Security Manager Configuration Change Monitoring is setup, it may take anywhere from minutes to hours to see data, below is an example of configuring hourly change monitoring in Security Manager for a particular device managed by Security Manger. Note that both ‘Change Monitoring’ and ‘Log Monitoring’ must be enabled, the default ‘Check for Change Interval’ may be too long to be useful, if so change it. (please see Security Manager documentation for full details on configuring Change monitoring)
Part D – Search some sample Security Manager Change Events in Immediate Insight
Go back to the Immediate Insight Search tab, then do one of the following to search for Security Manager Change event records.
Searches can also be combined with other non-Security Manager data sources allowing for context and correlation of information from across your security related ecosystem. (For further details on Searching with Immediate insight please consult the User Guide)
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.
