Automated Policy Management & Continuous Compliance

Facing a rapidly-approaching compliance deadline, a multinational oil and gas company turned to FireMon for help automating their policy workflows in order to achieve compliance while saving time, resources, and eliminating opportunities for errors and misconfigurations.

The Challenge

Due to pressure resulting from a recent pipeline cyberattack, urgent policy cleanup was necessary to meet new internal compliance practices within 90 days. The company lacked the visibility and automation across their complex, multi-vendor environment necessary to meet the 90-day deadline.

The company sought to:

  • Meet new internal compliance standards within 90 days
  • Eliminate manual firewall rule audit policy and rule changes
  • Gain consistent policy management across a hybrid cloud environment
