OVERLAND PARK, KS and DALLAS, TX – November 14, 2017 — FireMon, the worldwide leader in Network Security Policy Management (NSPM), today announced that the FireMon Security Manager platform, including the Risk Analyzer module, achieved a 5 out of 5-star rating in a technical product evaluation by SC Media.

Peter Stephenson, Technology Editor for SC Media described the Security Manager and Risk Analyzer combination as “one of the most well-focused firewall management tools that we’ve seen.” He continued, “It is a next-generation tool, and it focuses on the firewall(s) in your enterprise. FireMon Security Manager provides continuous visibility into network security devices and polices across the enterprise.  It does this primarily by managing policies on firewalls.

“The Risk Analyzer module provides real-time visibility into risks for assessment of risk posture by policy rule and asset. Security administrators can simulate how attackers might gain access to assets through network vulnerabilities and assess the impact of the potential attack.”

Security Manager and Risk Analyzer also gained 5 out of 5 stars for Features, Documentation, Value for Money, Performance, Support and Ease of Use – proving once again how FireMon is the most complete solution for NSPM.

Stephenson added, “For a next-generation tool this one cannot be beat for the price. It is solid, comprehensive and the user interface and drill-downs are clean and well thought-out. For its price and performance, we make this one our Best Buy this month.”

Firewall policy management is a key to security management across the enterprise because policy remains the bedrock for protecting large, complex, global businesses.

“To receive such high praise from SC Magazine, a household name within our industry, is a fantastic achievement, a proud moment and the reward for all the hard work done by everyone involved at FireMon in trying to make our connected world a more secure place,” said Satin Mirchandani, CEO of FireMon. “To gain 5 out of 5 stars across the board will breed confidence to our global customer base that they are using the best security management solution in the industry.”
