Unless you’re under a rock, you know that the WannaCry Ransomware cyberattack swept worldwide headlines last week.
Organizations scrambled to apply the latest Microsoft security patch to their computers to prevent the spread of the attack. It’s estimated that the ransomware attack hit more than 300,000 victims in 150 countries.
With FireMon’s change management workflow capabilities, you learn the full implications of every policy change prior to implementation. Proactive “what-if” impact analysis recommendations prevent disruptions in service and security to keep your network running smoothly.
Defining firewall change management workflow with FireMon enables you to:
Change Detection & Reporting
Isolate, document and, when necessary, alert on every ongoing change implemented throughout your existing firewall policies.
Change Comparison Views
Review every proposed rule change against your existing firewall policies to ensure consistency and prevent redundancy.
Evaluate every proposed text edit against your existing firewall policies to ensure consistency and prevent redundancy.
Perform proactive what-if impact analysis of any proposed changes to your existing firewall policies, prior to implementation.
Create detailed documentation of all changes to your existing firewall policies to track, search and understand revisions.
Aggregate detailed documentation of all rules applied within your existing firewall policies to maintain a comprehensive repository.
Leverage full visibility across all of your existing firewall policies to inform ongoing change and ensure effective implementation.
Utilize standards-based (BPMN 2.0) integration with your existing firewall policy workflow (e.g. ticketing) management processes.
Change Process Workflow
Employ fully customizable workflow process automation for all ongoing changes made to your existing firewall policies.
Audit every change made to your existing firewall policies with full search and historical event logs.
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.
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.
