Continuous Compliance & Automated Policy Management
Due to enormous business growth, an automobile manufacturer’s security environment scaled faster than their manual processes could keep up with. The company turned to FireMon to help achieve and maintain compliance, while saving time, resources, and eliminating manual processes that often result in errors and misconfigurations.
Reduction in time to review and clean firewall rules
Rapid growth far outpaced the manual processes used to manage the company’s hybrid on-premises and cloud environment. In addition, new internal compliance standards and a strong desire to maintain a stellar security reputation led the company to seek a real-time security policy management solution that could scale alongside their business.
The company sought to:
- Gain a single, comprehensive view of policy across their hybrid and multivendor environment
- Automate rule documentation, clean up, and reporting
- Remove redundant, overly permissive, and unused rules
- Eliminate compliance errors from misconfigurations and manual processes
