This week, a credit service in India called Creditseva suffered a data breach which exposed details of some 48,000 citizens – including driver’s licenses, home addresses and credit reports. The company was notified by Kromtech security researchers of the breach when they noticed the information on an insecure Amazon S3 bucket.
To date, SIEM vendors have not provided the market with the functions needed for producing world-class threat hunting. Again, threat hunting is a method. In order to follow this method, we have to have tools that accelerate and amplify our human work, rather than using technologies that brush aside our method in favor of operating within their paradigm. Too many threat hunting programs are sputtering because we continue to believe that the method should conform to the technology, but that gets things backwards.
Vulnerability scanning has its place but I’ve often found that it produces a mountain of data with little guidance for prioritizing updates other than a relative high/medium/low risk rating of the exploit itself and of the device’s value.

Intelligent Security Management solutions continue to outpace the market
FireMon delivers outstanding Q3 with remarkable highlights:
OVERLAND PARK, KS and DALLAS, TX – November 7, 2016 – FireMon, the global leader in network security policy management, today announced its largest bookings quarter in history as well as an impressive 53% growth in new customers over Q2 2016.
Year-to-date renewal rates topped 90%, which the company attributes to an increased focus on customer success that resulted in an industry-leading 96% customer satisfaction rating.
“The success we achieved this quarter highlights the execution capabilities of the high-performance FireMon team as they focus on solving customer problems,” said Satin H. Mirchandani, who was appointed CEO this September. “Our customers are faced with daunting security management challenges that increase exponentially as they move to new platforms such as cloud and SDN. Our solutions address this challenge head on, and our position in the industry is a direct reflection of that.”
FireMon made two additional executive hires in the third quarter. Blue Coat veteran, Kurt Mills joined the team as VP of Worldwide Channels and former CISO at Surescripts, Paul Calatayud, joined as CTO. Last week, they announced the acquisition of cloud infrastructure security broker FortyCloud, which expands FireMon’s cloud security solutions.
FireMon also announced its standard-setting vision for Intelligent Policy Automation (IPA). Recognizing the failures in change management solutions today, FireMon’s IPA framework provides context for access requests to help system administrators and network engineers more effectively implement changes that best enable the business without introducing new risk. To date, customers leveraging the IPA framework have reduced the time to complete a change, and more completely understand the risk associated with the change, by more than 90%.
FireMon closed the quarter with another feather in its cap, taking home the Enterprise Security Solution of the Year at the Computing Security Awards in London for its Security Manager platform.
FireMon’s Intelligent Security Management platform enables users with Cisco Systems switches, routers and firewalls (Pix, ASA, FirePower) to work smarter, applying intelligence to the entire security program

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.
