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.
Security management comes to the forefront at cybersecurity industry’s top annual conference, FireMon says it’s time to manage complexity by looking at security from a new angle.
Booth #S1121, South Hall, Moscone Center, San Francisco
February 13-16, 2017
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – February 14, 2017 – FireMon, the leader in Network Security Policy Management (NSPM), is previewing its Intelligent Security Management (ISM) platform in Booth #S1121 at the RSA Conference in San Francisco this week. ISM helps companies gain visibility into their complex security infrastructures and operate more proactively to both prevent and detect potential breaches.
Enterprise security teams face a number of pressures to keep up with the speed of business, manage more advanced threats and adhere to increasingly strict compliance demands. In response, they have invested in more and more point solutions and as well as the staff to manage them. Gartner estimated IT security spending reached 81.6 billion in 2016. However, breaches are more prevalent than ever with 1,093 security incidents disclosed in the U.S. alone last year.
FireMon ISM addresses the gap created by the need to manage security technology and the staff available to deliver that management. ISM provides benchmarking, simulation, analysis and automation tools that enable organizations to manage and adapt their environment in a more cost effective, proactive manner.
“With the speed of business accelerating, the complexity of security infrastructure multiplying and the severity of cyber threats increasing, security teams are struggling to keep up,” said Michael Callahan, Chief Marketing Officer at FireMon. “FireMon is turning security management on its head and helping customers control their security destinies with Intelligent Security Management.”
Anchored by its policy management platform, Security Manager, and its security analytics platform, Immediate Insight, FireMon enables users to plan and monitor the security policies intended to prevent breaches as well as identify and remediate threats as identified by security alert data.
Four applications of Intelligent Security Management will be on display in FireMon’s booth at the RSA Conference:

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.
