Policy Management & Compliance for a Hybrid Cloud Environment

The global pandemic dispersed a physically close-working team, increasing time to complete compliance assessments and risk of errors due to misconfigurations and manual processes. To perform a policy rule cleanup and meet an upcoming audit deadline, the team chose FireMon to quickly achieve and maintain strict compliance standards.

The Challenge

A resource-strapped team that relied on manual processes faced an annual audit and a growing complex environment. As most of the team’s time was spent reviewing rules for compliance and then manually implementing them, the company knew they had to improve their policy management to meet both current and future compliance and audit needs.

The company sought to:

  • Achieve continuous compliance while reducing audit preparation time
  • Automate rule documentation, clean up, and reporting
  • Remove redundant, overly permissive, and unused rules
  • Eliminate compliance errors from misconfigurations and manual processes
