Unless you’re under a rock, you know that the WannaCry Ransomware cyberattack swept worldwide headlines last week.
Organizations scrambled to apply the latest Microsoft security patch to their computers to prevent the spread of the attack. It’s estimated that the ransomware attack hit more than 300,000 victims in 150 countries.
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.
Leader in intelligent security management saw significant global growth with highest bookings on record and strong performance in every region and product line.
OVERLAND PARK, KS and DALLAS, TX – March 2, 2017 –
FireMon delivered a strong 2016 with notable highlights:
FireMon, the leader in Network Security and Policy Management (NSPM), today announced that 2016 was the company’s strongest year on record in both revenue and bookings – continuing a 5-year streak of double-digit growth. The firm attributes the success to the addition of many new customers, particularly in North America and APAC, and key senior leadership appointments, including Satin H. Mirchandani as CEO and Paul Calatayud as CTO. FireMon’s Intelligent Security Management solutions have become more and more critical as complexity in network security environments continues to rise.
“Security is dominating the conversation in enterprise companies as they seek the answer to improving security operations and reducing risk,” said Mirchandani. “What they often fail to realize is that due to complex and often poorly managed networked security environments, they’re increasing their operational costs while also making it a lot easier for cyber attacks to be successful. FireMon’s industry leading solutions reduce the risk related to the widening gap between security resources, and the demand on those resources, to effectively manage existing and newly added security technologies.”
As further proof of its strong market position, FireMon achieved a substantial increase in add-on customer bookings and double digit growth in North America, APAC and EMEA. In addition to bookings success, 2016 also saw new product innovations, highlighted by the release of Intelligent Policy Automation – including advanced support for Cisco and Palo Alto Networks devices. FireMon also acquired FortyCloud for multi-cloud security management.
FireMon continued its winning streak with five industry awards in 2016 including:
“We’re confident that 2017 will be another big year for FireMon as we add to our portfolio and carry on delivering intelligent security management solutions that improve our customers’ security postures and reduce the complexity of their security environments,” concluded Mirchandani.
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.
