FireMon Presents the New Standard for Change Management: Intelligent Policy Automation

Wednesday, August 31, 2016


Firewall administration continues to be a manual process for many organizations. And manual usually means slow, and tedious, and error-prone. This results in missed SLAs and increased operational expenses, because, of course, just “ANY” rule won’t do.

By applying intelligence to the planning process, FireMon helps you identify the necessary changes and analyze the impact prior to committing to the change.

In this webinar, Matt Dean, Vice President of Product, will introduce FireMon Intelligent Policy Automation – a standard-setting, full lifecycle management platform that combines automation with contextual analysis to ensure you’re not just speeding up the changes, but optimizing them for both business and security.

2016 State of the Firewall

Tuesday, March 29, 2016


FireMon is proud to present its 2nd Annual State of the Firewall Report based on a November 2015 survey of 700 IT security practitioners, representing a range of professional roles, organization sizes and industry verticals. Survey participants were asked 21 questions about their current firewall infrastructure and management challenges as well as questions about adoption and impact of emerging technologies such as NGFW, SDN and cloud.

When compared with results from the 2015 study, the responses revealed three trends that we will explore during this webinar:

  1. Firewalls remain an extremely valuable part of the network security infrastructure.
  2. Next-generation firewalls continue to see broad adoptions, adding complexity to security management.
  3. Awareness around SDN and its impact on network security has increased.

Rule Recertification without Spreadsheets

Thursday, March 17, 2016


Firewall policy management becomes increasingly complex as new rules are added to support access requests and changing business demands. The problem is these rules are rarely reviewed or removed. When they are reviewed, IT teams are left stringing together email chains, spreadsheets and proprietary knowledge to determine why the rule exists and if it should be renewed.

FireMon Policy Optimizer automates this entire process, creating a single workflow for firewall rule review, recertification and removal. This means IT teams can quickly validate current access configurations with stakeholders, meet mandatory compliance requirements and identify and eliminate risky rules.

During this discussion of Policy Optimizer’s automated rule review capabilities, we will cover:

  • Multi-stakeholder rule review workflow
  • Automated policy and rule recertification
  • Secure removal of unsafe or out-of-date rules

Billions have been invested in SIEM to automate data analysis. Yet SIEM Solutions continue to struggle with the variety and complexity of data coming through.

Tuesday, August 11, 2015
The recent data breach at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) demonstrated how dangerous improper third-party access can be to an organization.

How do you know what access is normal and what is not? And how can you catch improper access before it impacts your business?

Automating PCI 1.1.7 with FireMon Policy Optimizer

Tuesday, August 12, 2014
If PCI DSS compliance is needed for your business, FireMon has a new offering – Policy Optimizer – that can dramatically reduce the cost of PCI compliance
