FireMon to showcase real-time visibility and automated analysis for security policy and data in microsegmented environments at VMworld® 2017 conference in Las Vegas
OVERLAND PARK, KS & DALLAS, TX – August 24, 2017 – As business demands accelerate adoption of software-defined datacenters (SDCC), the question has become “Where does security fit?” With its Intelligent Security Management platform, FireMon advances security management to support the speed and security required for adoption of this next generation of networks. The platform, and its ability to provide real-time visibility and automated analysis for security controls and data within microsegmented environments, will be available for demonstration in Booth #1413 August 27-30 at the VMworld® 2017 conference in Las Vegas.
In its 2017 State of the Firewall Report, FireMon found that 67% of organizations have adopted or have plans to adopt SDN with VMware NSX® being the most popular solution under consideration. The continued evolution of networking adds a layer of complexity in management, and especially security. Already resource-strapped security teams are being pressured to move faster all while maintaining the network’s security posture.
The FireMon platform aims to support security teams caught in the transition, providing a holistic, centralized view of security policy and data across the entire infrastructure. This enables organizations to automate management of SDN products or network virtualization platforms such as VMware NSX next to their traditional, on-premises firewalls for consistent, cross-platform management of security controls.
“The cyberthreat landscape continues to grow and constant security vigilance at the cloud, storage, desktop, server and network layer is more critical than ever – regardless of where those resources reside,” said Tim Woods, Vice President of Technology Alliances, FireMon. “Enterprise-wide scale, visibility and automation are no longer a nice-to-have but requirements for these hybrid network deployments. And the FireMon platform is uniquely positioned to deliver on that requirement.”
The current release of FireMon’s Intelligent Security Management platform supports the following capabilities for VMware NSX:
“Collaborating with FireMon helps to deliver a sophisticated virtualized network to enterprises around the globe,” said Brian Lazear, senior director, product management, Networking and Security Business Unit, VMware. “Their support for the NSX platform will help mutual customers adopt new networking paradigms with confidence.”

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.
