My years of experience managing security programs, across a broad spectrum of industries, has given me a greater understanding of how technology and people both play a critical role in influencing the overall security posture of any organization.
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.
En la actualidad, uno de los retos principales es preparar las redes de seguridad, no sólo para enfrentar las amenazas, sino también para enfrentar los cumplimientos. El día 26 de enero se publicó en el Diario Oficial la LEY GENERAL DE PROTECCIÓN DE DATOS PERSONALES EN POSESIÓN DE SUJETOS OBLIGADOS.
¿Está tu red preparada?
¿Cuentas con los procesos necesarios para el cumplimiento?
En esta era digital los datos personales de nuestros clientes y proveedores pasan por una red y se almacenan en una base de datos. Éstos, por ley, deben protegerse por medio de sistemas y procesos. Uno de los objetivos de esta ley es establecer las condiciones de tratamiento de datos personales y fomentar la cultura de protección.
La Ley de protección de datos es mucho más que un simple aviso de privacidad; esta ley describe derechos y obligaciones que de incumplirse pueden ser penalizados. Asiste a este Webinar para conocer más y prepararte. Te mostraremos:
In the fall of 2016, we sought the answer to a very simple question: What benefits do users who have a firewall management tool deployed with their firewalls see over nonusers? To find out, we commissioned Forrester Consulting to survey 188 IT security decision makers.
In their study, “Automate Zero Trust Policy & Enforcement,” Forrester Consulting found that organizations with firewall auditing and configuration tools realize more benefits that those without, including:
In this webinar, guest Speaker Josh Zelonis, Senior Analyst with Forrester, will review and discuss the results of the study with FireMon CTO Paul Calatayud who will bring his own experiences and best practices for deploying firewall management tools to improve productivity and reduce risk.
OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS & DALLAS, TEXAS – March 14, 2017 – FireMon, the leader in Intelligent Security Management, today announced results from a survey conducted at the recent RSA Conference that gauged the attitudes of 350 IT security professionals towards the skills shortage in cybersecurity. It found that a remarkably high 93% of respondents place more importance on experience rather than qualifications when it comes to hiring. A further 73% claimed that it didn’t matter whether IT staff were college graduates when it came to getting the job done.
Main survey findings:
“Combatting the skills gap does not lie solely with more people getting degrees and certifications,” said Jeremy Martin, Vice President of Engineering, FireMon. “Experience has been shown to be much more important, which could is good news for security-minded folks who learn by experimenting with code and tearing apart systems. That is not to diminish those with qualifications, but instead to encourage those with real-world experience to apply for the IT security jobs they think they might not otherwise get.”
It was also good news for those IT professionals who have good communication skills, but perhaps not the best technical skills, as respondents were split down the middle as to what was more important. Another 90% of IT security professionals surveyed agreed that in order to keep up with the rapidly changing threat landscape, IT security professionals would have to become more business savvy.
“Good communication skills can’t be overlooked,” continued Martin. “We need people with those skills to become facilitators to the business. The key to the skills gap will be identifying these opportunities and matching them with individuals who can relay the IT security messages to the rest of the company or senior management in ways that makes sense in business terms.”
A final key finding was that a third of respondents said they could use more intelligent IT security products. With more intuitive technology, staffing resources could be freed up from mundane tasks to focus their knowledge where it really counts.
“With all of the complexity surrounding IT security infrastructure, from the various security technologies, routers, switches, firewalls and so forth, finding ways to make management tools and workflows more intelligent can shoulder some of the burden and fill in interim staffing gaps,” concluded Martin.
Using the FireMon Intelligent Security Management platform, today’s leading enterprise organizations, government agencies, and managed security providers have dramatically improved effectiveness of network defenses, accelerating business agility optimizing return on investment.

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.
