FireMon to Participate at Palo Alto Networks Americas Partner Conference

Proactive Security Intelligence Leader to Showcase Integration with Next-Generation Firewall Platforms and Support for Cutting-Edge Panorama Management Console

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., September 17, 2014

FireMon, the industry leader in proactive security intelligence solutions, today announced that the company will be participating at the Palo Alto Networks Americas Partner Conference, which will take place September 17-19, 2014 at the JW Marriott in Chicago, Illinois. FireMon will be showcasing its Security Intelligence Platform in Booth #7.

Palo Alto Networks’ integrated, application-centric solutions have dramatically shifted the market for network security device management. By combining FireMon’s Security Intelligence Platform with Palo Alto device infrastructure, organizations can address strategic processes such as firewall rules and policy cleanup and change, optimization of overall network enforcement and prioritization of underlying risks.

Notably, FireMon’s Security Intelligence Platform integrates directly with Palo Alto’s Panorama management console, allowing customers to leverage advanced automation in order to address network security complexity and change. And for channel partners, FireMon-Palo Alto joint solutions deliver several benefits including: increased profits via faster, successful firewall deployment and management; demonstrated ROI for device implementation; and consistent, vendor-supported firewall device and policy migration.

The FireMon Security Intelligence Platform allows organizations to remediate exposed vulnerabilities and optimize their existing defenses. The recently introduced Policy Optimizer module helps organizations adapt network security device rules to changing threats, emerging management challenges and evolving compliance requirements such as PCI DSS.

Policy Optimizer is the first solution to automate a traditionally manual, fragmented process bridging the “access gap” existing between network security teams and other involved officials. In conjunction with Security Manager and Risk Analyzer – the core components of the Security Intelligence Platform – Policy Optimizer isolates any potentially problematic rules or policies, allowing users to alter or eliminate risky access and improve their overall security posture.
