“The threat landscape today is now so complex that enterprises must simultaneously understand the big picture and the devil in the details,” said Brazil. “This requires a global understanding and prioritization of risk. It also demands the ability to anticipate and rectify changes in policy or network configuration that at best may result in non-compliance, and at worst can open up gaping security holes offering a pathway to critical assets. FireMon’s expertise in understanding these dynamics and providing the tools organizations need to manage it is what’s driving a rapidly expanding number of customers to team with us.”
