There's lots to keep you busy!
The number of devices in most security networks isn’t decreasing. In fact, many large enterprise networks add dozens of new devices every year. Each device contains an immense amount of data that can be vital to the security of the organization. But collecting data is only useful if you can easily access, process, analyze and share it with others.
Juniper Networks has one of the best firewall solutions on the market and we are pleased to have been a partner of Juniper’s for some time. We have grown FireMon’s support for NetScreen dramatically over the years, and FireMon continues to be the most full-featured firewall management solution for Juniper firewalls.
Our change management process tool, Policy Planner, is a great workflow solution for Juniper firewalls. Users can enter requirements directly into the web-based interface, where Policy Planner captures the business requirement and compliance justification. Then, FireMon uses its knowledge of the firewall configuration to see if the change is necessary. If it’s not, you can close the ticket. If a change is necessary, FireMon will give you some interesting additional information, like if any rules already provide similar access or where the traffic is dropped, to help with placement of a new rule.
All of those analysis features are built on our leading Policy Test engine. Policy Test allows for the offline modeling of packets through the firewall policy to see how the rules currently handle the traffic. It’s a great tool for testing behavior or searching the policy (like every rule that has a specific network as a destination, or every rule that contains the HTTP service).
Policy Test has been updated recently for Juniper firewalls to include analysis of interfaces, zones and routes. So as you test scenarios, you can see the routing and zone information in the same result with the security rules that impact the traffic.
Another feature that our Juniper customers love is Traffic Flow Analysis. Traffic Flow inspects a security rule and identifies flows -- which sources are using which destinations over which services. With this info, you can understand your policies better and clean up rules that are defined too broadly.
As always, our compliance framework is great for analyzing configurations against PCI, NERC or best practice standards and is completely customizable to accommodate your unique needs.
If you use NetScreen firewalls today, I’d invite you to come try FireMon. We offer free trials of our software and we know you’ll be excited about the management functionality we can provide to augment your Juniper administration. You can learn more here.
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:
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.
