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.

“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.”
