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.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., April 27, 2016 – FireMon CEO Jim Lewandowski today announced the security management firm achieved record growth in revenue, bookings and new customers for 2015. He also introduced former Juniper Networks and McAfee marketing executive, Michael Callahan, as Chief Marketing Officer – the first in the Company’s 12-year history.
With the increasing importance placed on cybersecurity in organizations and the vast amounts of equipment deployed in large enterprises to prevent cyber-attacks, the requirement for cohesive management of these technologies has never been greater. FireMon capitalized on this need with their comprehensive security management solutions, achieving a nearly 40% year-over-year growth in revenue for 2015, which resulted in cumulative growth of more than 400% in the last five years.
The 2015 results capped off a landmark year of accomplishments for FireMon:
FireMon closed the first quarter of 2016 with the hiring of CMO Michael Callahan, completing the executive leadership team. Callahan previously led global branding and communications as the VP of Corporate Marketing for Juniper Networks. He has also held executive marketing roles including field marketing, partner marketing, product marketing and product management for market-leading players in the security industry such as HP, 3Com/TippingPoint and McAfee.
“I’ve been impressed with the tremendous growth potential I’ve seen in the short time I’ve been at FireMon,” said Michael Callahan, Chief Marketing Officer. “I look forward to building the FireMon brand globally and driving continued growth through programs that highlight FireMon’s differentiated solutions to customers’ security management challenges.”
