Intent-Based Networking and Security

When your perfectly written policy becomes obsolete the moment it’s implemented, the time for intent-based security is here. With intent-based networking (IBNS), network and security teams command their desired state, moving away from writing rules for right now which is never what the future looks like.

Continuous Security for Intent-Based Networking

Intent-based networking is leaving the academic ivory tower and is now commonly seen in most enterprises. Good idea, right? But how do you manage it all? With changes happening every 0.000031 seconds, how do you report, document, audit or see how threats could be affecting the enterprise?

FireMon is the only solution ready for intent-based networking with the powerful fusion of vulnerability management, continuous compliance and orchestration. Never write a firewall rule again.

  • Translation: You create the intent, FireMon translates the intent into the right security control
  • Automation: Once intent is finalized, FireMon implements the rule instantly
  • Awareness: FireMon takes information from the network, looking for changes in the desired state
  • Remediation: FireMon detects any drift and kicks off the self-healing to return to the desired state

Vulnerability Management

Build security intent in the context of exposures and threats with risk analysis and risk scoring.   

Combine vulnerabilities with security policies, use attack simulation to show just how an exposure turns to exploit. Create your security intent based on risk scoring and threat exposures: future-proofing your network policies.

Continuous Compliance

Audits are made easy with intent-based documentation and standards all in one place. You are always audit-ready.

Real-time compliance checks across over 350 controls takes out the guesswork for security intent. And with dynamic remediation, FireMon will automatically modify rules and policies if compliance drifts.

Command security intent instead of translating requests and writing firewall rules.   

Create your desired state, FireMon’s policy compute engine will translate and implement to any firewall, cloud or virtual enforcement point. Stop writing rules. Build your security intent, we’ll handle the rest in the world’s only security intent orchestration platform.

  • Real-Time Monitoring: Continuous awareness of network states, automatic remediation
  • Full Data Retention: Intention pushes downstream to enforcement, firewall or cloud systems
  • Customizable Search & Reporting: Move fast, find the threats, restore business connections
  • Automation & Orchestration: Make changes in seconds when your desired state starts to drift
