IANS report demonstrates substantial returns over three years for average FireMon customer using its web-based firewall management platform - even more for MSSPs.
OVERLAND PARK, KAN. – May 10, 2016 – According to a security insight report made available today and carried out by research firm IANS on behalf of security management vendor FireMon, the Security Manager platform by FireMon provides a Return on Security investment (ROS) of $892,240.00 to the average customer over three years. The report also found that customers using Security Manager can realize a 75% reduction in the time spent on security analysis, correlating to an average savings of nearly $225k over a three year period. For large scale deployments where many devices are present, such as in a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP), the returns are even greater. The full report is available to download here.
“Security device management is an area of concern for many organizations as the sheer number of firewalls and Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) protecting their networks increases,” said Matt Dean, Vice President of Product Strategy at FireMon. “Making multi-platform environments with many different technologies work to their fullest potential is no easy feat for any IT team. With Security Manager, customers can see benefits from SME level - with just a few firewalls - to large enterprise or MSSP deployments of over 10,000 devices. It has the incredible ability to scale, enhance visibility, reduce complexity and support enormous networks.”
The average FireMon Security Manager customer has 45 devices under management and the IANS report shows that they can realize value from the solution in well under a month. It states that once acquired and deployed Security Manager “achieved its objective at a lower cost in terms of employee time and also produced better reporting and data as a result of having highly accurate network data.”

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.
En la actualidad, uno de los retos principales es preparar las redes de seguridad, no sólo para enfrentar las amenazas, sino también para enfrentar los cumplimientos. El día 26 de enero se publicó en el Diario Oficial la LEY GENERAL DE PROTECCIÓN DE DATOS PERSONALES EN POSESIÓN DE SUJETOS OBLIGADOS.
¿Está tu red preparada?
¿Cuentas con los procesos necesarios para el cumplimiento?
En esta era digital los datos personales de nuestros clientes y proveedores pasan por una red y se almacenan en una base de datos. Éstos, por ley, deben protegerse por medio de sistemas y procesos. Uno de los objetivos de esta ley es establecer las condiciones de tratamiento de datos personales y fomentar la cultura de protección.
La Ley de protección de datos es mucho más que un simple aviso de privacidad; esta ley describe derechos y obligaciones que de incumplirse pueden ser penalizados. Asiste a este Webinar para conocer más y prepararte. Te mostraremos:
In the fall of 2016, we sought the answer to a very simple question: What benefits do users who have a firewall management tool deployed with their firewalls see over nonusers? To find out, we commissioned Forrester Consulting to survey 188 IT security decision makers.
In their study, “Automate Zero Trust Policy & Enforcement,” Forrester Consulting found that organizations with firewall auditing and configuration tools realize more benefits that those without, including:
In this webinar, guest Speaker Josh Zelonis, Senior Analyst with Forrester, will review and discuss the results of the study with FireMon CTO Paul Calatayud who will bring his own experiences and best practices for deploying firewall management tools to improve productivity and reduce risk.
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.
