FireMon announces new standard in change automation


FireMon has announced FireMon Intelligent Policy Automation (IPA), its vision for a new standard in firewall change automation that takes into account the impact on compliance and security to reduce the manual effort and unnecessary security risk associated with today’s complex implementations. To date, customers leveraging the IPA framework have reduced the time to complete a change by more than 90%, while maintaining their security posture or even lowering the level of risk.

FireMon Intelligent Policy Automation (IPA) is a lifecycle policy management framework that helps customers make the right changes as fast as responsible, rather than as fast as possible. The framework provides context around access requests to help system administrators and network engineers determine and implement the change that best enables the business without introducing new risk.
