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.
Proactive Security Intelligence Leader to Showcase Integration with Next-Generation Firewall Platforms and Support for Cutting-Edge Panorama Management Console
OVERLAND PARK, Kan., September 17, 2014
FireMon, the industry leader in proactive security intelligence solutions, today announced that the company will be participating at the Palo Alto Networks Americas Partner Conference, which will take place September 17-19, 2014 at the JW Marriott in Chicago, Illinois. FireMon will be showcasing its Security Intelligence Platform in Booth #7.
Palo Alto Networks’ integrated, application-centric solutions have dramatically shifted the market for network security device management. By combining FireMon’s Security Intelligence Platform with Palo Alto device infrastructure, organizations can address strategic processes such as firewall rules and policy cleanup and change, optimization of overall network enforcement and prioritization of underlying risks.
Notably, FireMon’s Security Intelligence Platform integrates directly with Palo Alto’s Panorama management console, allowing customers to leverage advanced automation in order to address network security complexity and change. And for channel partners, FireMon-Palo Alto joint solutions deliver several benefits including: increased profits via faster, successful firewall deployment and management; demonstrated ROI for device implementation; and consistent, vendor-supported firewall device and policy migration.
The FireMon Security Intelligence Platform allows organizations to remediate exposed vulnerabilities and optimize their existing defenses. The recently introduced Policy Optimizer module helps organizations adapt network security device rules to changing threats, emerging management challenges and evolving compliance requirements such as PCI DSS.
Policy Optimizer is the first solution to automate a traditionally manual, fragmented process bridging the “access gap” existing between network security teams and other involved officials. In conjunction with Security Manager and Risk Analyzer – the core components of the Security Intelligence Platform – Policy Optimizer isolates any potentially problematic rules or policies, allowing users to alter or eliminate risky access and improve their overall security posture.
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.

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.
