Exclusive agreement between the organisations reflects strength of FireMon solution to eliminate firewall misconfigurations.
Lenexa, KS, May 23, 2023 — FireMon, the leading network security policy management (NSPM) company that brings visibility, control, and automation to enterprise cloud and hybrid network infrastructure, has today announced a strategic partnership with Essen Vision, a Mumbai headquartered digital security specialist offering professional services to more than 250 enterprise customers across India. This will see Essen Vision become the country’s first partner for FireMon NSPM solutions since it started investing in the region late last year.
Recent statistics show that Indian companies experienced more than 1,700 cyberattacks per week over the last six months, compared to the global average of slightly more than 980. The cybersecurity services industry in the country has grown from $4.3 billion in 2019 to more than $8.4 billion in 2021, representing a growth rate of 40.33%.
As a result, companies have turned to strengthen their firewall real estate. However, the large number of firewalls being rapidly implemented results in the challenge of effectively managing them. One of the most common threats to business security is accidental firewall policy misconfigurations. Manual rule and policy management of complex ground-to-cloud networks introduce countless opportunities for error.
Most breaches that occur are the result of attackers taking advantage of these misconfigurations. It’s because of these threats, coupled with an ever-tightening and evolving regulatory compliance landscape, that Essen Vision has chosen to partner with FireMon. Their collaboration will see them provide Indian businesses with the means to better detect, respond, and prevent cyberattacks from happening while prioritizing compliance as an essential function.
The partnership will centre around FireMon’s comprehensive NSPM solution, which Essen Vision will offer its customers. This solution will enable organisations to centralise company policy and automates policy management, regardless of how many firewalls, cloud security groups, and other policy-control devices are on a network. FireMon knows every detail of every device and intelligently designs rule changes that are optimised for each business environment. FireMon’s automated change management dynamically and continuously responds to evolving requirements and environments, even after policies have been deployed.
“FireMon investing into the region at a time when firewall management solutions are really needed is exciting for us. We look forward to working closely with FireMon to deliver enhanced infrastructure security controls to our enterprise customers across India. With the financial and reputational damage caused by cyberattacks becoming increasingly significant, working with FireMon to expand on our value proposition better enables us to address the network security needs of our customers,” said Ronny Ferrao, COO of Essen Vision.
“FireMon is well equipped in the Indian market. Not only do we have an experienced team on the ground, but the agreement with Essen Vision, a well-established partner in the country, means the cybersecurity needs of companies can be quickly addressed to strengthen their firewall defences against a rapidly evolving threat landscape,” said Pratap Mondal, SAARC Country Manager at FireMon.
“The partnership with Essen Vision affirms the importance and relevance of providing NSPM solutions to the Indian market. Furthermore, it reinforces the strength of the FireMon portfolio of solutions as we have been selected as a vendor of choice for Essen Vision. Real-time change monitoring is crucial to stay ahead of problems before they start. FireMon monitors policy changes across the entire environment on any device, whether on-premises or in the cloud. We look forward to closely working with Essen Vision in the country,” said Shikwang Jang, AVP for APAC at FireMon.
