How effective are your firewall policies?
FireMon’s firewall policy analysis and reporting capability provides a single, detailed view of every security device on the network to help you identify gaps and redundancies in firewall policy. The results are better defenses, faster response times and improved compliance.
Optimizing firewall policy management with FireMon enables you to:
Identify any unused rules and objects in existing policies to prevent unseen gaps in defense and reduce unnecessary complexity.
Discover hidden and redundant rules that make your policies less effective – reducing complexity and informing proper documentation.
Quickly search all devices within the enterprise domain from a single place in the application.
Gauge the efficacy of your existing firewall policies, including comparative scoring, to understand current access enforcement.
Isolate access-based risks based on your existing firewall policies, gaining the ability to rapidly mitigate problems by adapting rules.
Map and analyze all access paths created by your existing firewall policies to ensure proper network defense and segmentation.
Calculate and assess the comparative level of security risk associated with your existing firewall policies to prioritize improvement.
Trace the source and destination of every rule in each of your existing firewall policies (including NAT) to understand traffic flow.
Isolate, document and, when necessary, alert on every ongoing change implemented throughout your existing firewall policies.
Automate workflow and recertification of your existing firewall policies to validate ongoing standards compliance (PCI DSS).
Examine all rule sets applied within your existing firewall policies to continually assess and improve network enforcement.
Pre-approve existing firewall rules and policies specific to your environment to speed analysis and ongoing management.
So you’ve purchased a new firewall. Now what?
You’ve got to decide which access is allowed, which isn’t allowed and whether or not rules are compliant with internal and regulatory standards.
Things are running along smoothly and then the dreaded “change.” A user submits a new access request and the fun begins. Is this access necessary? Safe? Compliant? And what happens when it’s time to retire unused rules?
How Effective Security Management Can Help Teams Cover the Exponentially Increasing Gap between Technology & the Resources Available to Manage It
Security teams today are under tremendous pressure due to the rising frequency and impact of breaches and a business that wants to move faster and faster. The answer to both of these challenges has always been to add more technology and staff resources.
However, each new technology added creates complexity. More rules are created and more data is generated. As networks continue to evolve, this complexity will only grow. And while staff resources may increase, they will never match the exponential growth of technology.
FireMon calls this phenomenon The Complexity Gap and has set out to help security teams close it.
Join us for this webinar with Frost & Sullivan where we’ll explore the causes of “The Gap” and how workforce multipliers such as intelligence and automation help staff manage their security more efficiently and more effectively.
Helping Enterprise Security Teams Improve Resource Efficiency & Reduce Overall Risk Exposure
Firewall technology has come a long way since its initial, most rudimentary forms. Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) are the latest development, and organizations are accelerating adoption to the new technology. But NGFWs aren’t a fix-all solution.
