Jul 20, 2017 Threat Hunting? Ditch the SIEM

Threat hunting remains an undeveloped competency for far too many organizations. When surveyed, security professionals confess an overall lack of competency to detect and respond to advanced attacks that slip through their defenses. In my experience, many organizations still rely on alerts from a SIEM (among other prevention systems). Most security teams will painstakingly build models for indicators of compromise, receive alerts from their SIEM, and “do the best they can” to eliminate the intrusion. What are the results?

Jul 13, 2017 If You Are Not Looking at Risk Vulnerability, You Are Only Seeing Part of the Security Picture

How do you know if your security posture is where it needs to be? Most organizations look at standards, be it national standards, industry standards or their own corporate standards. They may also look at their industry’s best practices. But if you aren’t looking at your risk vulnerability, you are likely not looking at the entire spectrum of your network’s security posture.

FireMon Named Best Security Solution in GTRA’s GOVTek Awards Program

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., June 26, 2014 –

FireMon, the industry leader in proactive security intelligence solutions, today announced that it was named Best Security Solution in the Government Technology Research Alliance’s (GTRA) GOVTek Executive Government Technology Awards program. A total of 25 industry-leading technology providers competed for top honors in this highly competitive category. FireMon was recognized on Monday, June 23 at GTRA’s GOVTek Awards Gala, a celebration of government and industry IT leaders whose vision, innovation and accomplishments have improved efficiency, the delivery of government services, citizen engagement, information sharing and national security.

“We are honored to be chosen by GTRA as the Best Security Solution. This prestigious award is a testament to the innovation and dedication of the entire FireMon team, and underscores our collective commitment to delivering strategic cybersecurity solutions to the federal sector to secure our homeland,” said Al Nieves, vice president, federal solutions for FireMon. “America must have the best equipped and best trained cyberdefenders in the world. We are continually expanding the FireMon Security Intelligence Platform to help agency IT security teams automate manual processes and proactively strengthen their overall security posture to increase resource effectiveness and reduce their attack surface in the face of a relentless threat landscape.”

Providing continuous, real-time visibility into network security infrastructure, policy effectiveness and underlying IT risk, the FireMon Security Intelligence Platform allows organizations to remediate exposed vulnerabilities and optimize their existing defenses. The Platform allows federal agencies to automate security device management and vulnerability risk analysis – two key requirements of the $6 billion Department of Homeland Security Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program – by quickly identifying, understanding and managing changes in overall security posture.

Unlike reactive approaches that simply log past events, FireMon Security Manager – the foundation of the Security Intelligence Platform – enables users to understand and fix configuration, policy and risk exposures in real-time. Complementing Security Manager, Risk Analyzer offers patented risk analysis capabilities that identify and prioritize vulnerabilities on key IT assets that are reachable by adversaries, ensuring that the greatest impact risks are mitigated first. Security Manager and Risk Analyzer are currently listed as “In Evaluation” for Common Criteria NIAP certification.

Earlier this month, FireMon introduced the new Policy Optimizer module, designed to help government entities rapidly improve network security device rules and policies in response to changing threats, emerging management challenges and evolving compliance requirements. Used in conjunction with Security Manager, this new module automates what traditionally has been a manual and fragmented process, empowering security teams with the ability to engage directly with key stakeholders – e.g., line-of-business, audit/compliance and IT risk management – to gather data and validate rule requests, eliminate unneeded rules and make implemented rules more targeted, productive and effective, while maintaining the highest levels of security control.

About FireMon

FireMon is the industry leader in proactive security intelligence solutions for large organizations that deliver continuous control of infrastructure, policy and IT risk. The FireMon Security Intelligence Platform is a massively scalable, high-performance foundation for network risk detection, change workflow automation, firewall rule base clean-up, compliance audit assessment and security operations cost reduction.

The Return on Security Analysis for FireMon’s Security Manager
IANS
Large Healthcare Provider
The customer sought a data analysis tool to correlate application data with network and security data to spot service-impacting anomalies. They did not have an accurate picture of interoperability between applications and the underlying infrastructure.
Major Airline
Following a merger with another airline, this customer was left managing a large number of firewalls and routers from different security vendors using a home-grown application.
National Insurance Provider
This national insurance provider had three problems to tackle regarding their firewall policies. First, the number of rules under management was overwhelming staff and processes. They needed to increase visibility and effectiveness of their firewall change request/workflow ticketing process. And they also need help maintaining compliance PCI DSS requirements.
Managed Service Provider
Each time this Global MSP engaged a new customer, they had to onboard the firewalls – sometimes hundreds per engagement – into their network. Part of the onboarding process required assessing the policies against internal best practices – a manual, line-by-line process that took an average of 16 hours/firewall and was extremely error-prone.
