FireMon Security Manager Wins Gold for Policy and User Management in ISPG 2018 Global Excellence Awards

FireMon also named a Silver winner in Cyber Security Vendor Achievement of the Year category for bridging the gap between enterprise risk and network teams with FireMon Risk Analyzer

OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS, and DALLAS, TEXAS – March 22, 2018 FireMon, provider of continuous security for the hybrid enterprise, today announced the Image open-ended up to 1920 px wide - 2018-GEA-Gold.gifFireMon Security Manager platform took home top honors in the Policy and User Management category in the 2018 Global Excellence Awards® organized by Info Security Products Guide. Now in its 14th year, the Global Excellence Awards recognize cyber security and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

The FireMon Security Manager platform helps organizations address the inherent complexity and changing requirements of today’s networks by providing continuous, real-time visibility into network security devices and policies across the enterprise. Using FireMon Security Manager, IT and security professionals have the actionable data they need to quickly adapt network defenses as business demands evolve and new threats emerge.

“Firewall policy management has traditionally been enforced manually, with security personnel implementing controls and rules to each asset in the enterprise,” said Satin H. Mirchandani, CEO of FireMon. “In today’s dynamic business environments, where applications and assets are continuously implemented, changed and de-commissioned, this manual and fragmented approach is too slow and error prone to adequately support requirements for business agility.”

He continues, “We designed FireMon Security Manager to help enterprises master policy management and reduce the risk associated with firewall sprawl, resulting in better decision-making, operational efficiency and maximum return on investment. This recognition from Info Security Products Guide validates the advancements we’ve made in firewall policy management as well as the value we bring to our customers.”

FireMon was also named a silver award winner in the Cyber Security Vendor Achievement of the Year category for bridging the gap between enterprise risk and network teams with its re-launch of FireMon Risk Analyzer last July. Security practitioners must be able to identify weaknesses and areas of vulnerability within their network infrastructures, and FireMon Risk Analyzer overlays vulnerability scan data onto network configuration data for a complete picture of risk exposure. Built on 15 years of real-world cybersecurity problem-solving and the unique capabilities that come with that experience, FireMon Risk Analyzer is a key component of the FireMon platform’s ability to deliver continuous security for hybrid enterprises with a powerful fusion of vulnerability management, continuous compliance and security orchestration.

Winners of the 2018 Global Excellence Awards will be honored at an awards ceremony on April 16, 2018, in San Francisco.
