Continuous Asset Discovery

With key certificates set to expire, this leading financial services company turned to FireMon as their existing solutions lacked necessary highly-granular and enterprise-scale capabilities. Upon implementation, the FireMon team quickly discovered a 30% increase in actual asset count compared to what the organization was aware of.

The Challenge

In addition to the impacts expired certificates would have on the organization such as outages and reputational damage, without a true understanding of what assets lived within their infrastructure, the company was concerned about their security posture due to underpopulation of information in existing vulnerability scanner, IPAM, and SIEM security solutions.

The company sought to:

  • Eliminate 100% of infrastructure blind spots
  • Gain real-time global network visibility and a complete view of all assets across their multi-vendor environment
  • Enrich existing vulnerability management, IPAM, and SIEM solutions which lacked records for hundreds of thousands of devices
