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.
I love March Madness; from the great basketball games to the bracket mania it inspires. The competition is thrilling and the passion of the players is inspiring. Each year, I fill out a bracket or two, but rarely succeed in picking the winner, let alone winning the office pool. This year is no different, with my entire bracket completely decimated. But, I am not alone this year. According to ESPN, only 2 people out of nearly 5.9 million predicted the teams in the final four and over 70% didn't pick even one of the teams (me included).
But, undeterred from my obvious lack of picking bracket winners, FireMon has published its own bracket challenge. In the spirit of March Madness, we would like to hear from you which features you would like to advance each round in our FireMon Feature Challenge. It is as simple as liking our page and then picking a winner in each of the three rounds. One lucky participant will receive a $50 gift card.
Over the past 10 years at FireMon, we have created a number of industry firsts with very innovative solutions designed to help our customers better manage their security infrastructure. From our very first feature of Graphical Change Comparison to more recent innovations such as Traffic Flow Analysis and Rule Recommendation, FireMon has delivered products to solve the very real and challenging issues of managing security. We look forward to hearing which features you think deserve to win the FireMon Feature Challenge.
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.
