FireMon and Nuspire Collaborate to Eliminate Complexity of Firewall Policy Management

Lenexa, KS, April 19, 2023 — FireMon, the leading network security policy management company that brings visibility, control and automation to enterprise cloud and hybrid network infrastructure, has today announced that Nuspire, a leading managed security services provider (MSSP), has augmented Nuspire’s Management Gateway Service with FireMon Security Manager. The new solution, Nuspire Firewall Policy Review, powered by FireMon, provides organizations with complete visibility into their network security, offering clear analysis and recommendations across all firewalls to optimize their security posture.

Gartner estimates firewall misconfigurations will cause 99% of all firewall breaches through 2023. If technology leaders do not perform regular firewall policy updates, it’s only a matter of time until their business experiences a breach. This latest solution by FireMon for Nuspire delivers consolidated security policy management for firewalls and cloud security groups to automate policy changes and minimize risk. Since creating the first-ever policy management solution in 2001, FireMon has grown to become the industry’s only real-time security policy management solution delivering complete visibility and control across an organization’s entire IT landscape.

“It’s an arduous task to manage changes and additions to things like firewall rules, network and service objects and users, as well as simply keeping up on basic configuration settings. Even with a well-established change management policy, doing these tasks manually is a recipe for mistakes and their occurrence is virtually inevitable. Misconfigurations and rule errors can have serious consequences for a business. FireMon and Nuspire have joined forces to help address and eliminate firewall policy misconfigurations – one of the biggest security issues businesses face today,” said Jody Brazil, CEO at FireMon.

Nuspire Firewall Policy Review, powered by FireMon, combines the industry expertise of Nuspire with powerful automation and data from FireMon to give extraordinary visibility into network risks. With this solution in place, organizations can fortify their perimeter regardless of where their teams are located. It delivers user-friendly reports with analyses and recommendations that can be used as a risk roadmap to prioritize security improvements.

“The joint offering between Nuspire and FireMon takes a best-in-class technology platform, powered with subject matter expertise, and introduces a level of automation that removes the manual burden of updating firewall policies – all while following best practices optimized for our clients,” said Lewie Dunsworth, CEO at Nuspire. “For organizations, this integrated offering shifts the balance of time toward addressing the most business-critical firewall issues, giving decision-makers the confidence that their on-premise, cloud and distributed environments are secure against even the most advanced threats.”
