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.
I am very excited to announce the release of Risk Analyzer, FireMon's patented risk analysis application providing enterprise visibility into risk exposure (Press Release). The product is a revolutionary advancement in how to identify and measure network risk and is now available as part of the FireMon portfolio of security management products. The release of Risk Analyzer marks another significant step towards our vision of enabling enterprises to achieve Better Security through Better Management of their security processes and technology.
This solution builds on the decade of experience we have with firewall and network configuration management. Understanding how network behavior and existing security controls affect the reachability of identified vulnerabilities defines the real exposure of an asset from a particular threat. These calculated scores for the defined risk scenarios provide insight into existing exposure and also permits continuous evaluation of improvement or regression of the security posture.
To learn more about Risk Analyzer check out the web site at http://www.firemon.com/products/riskanalyzer/ where you can also register for an upcoming webinar about the solution.
I look forward to sharing more about this solution and our vision in the coming weeks and months. But for today, I want to share my appreciation for a great team of people that helped bring this vision to reality. Our dedicated and talented product and engineering teams have done a tremendous job building upon great technology to deliver a great product. Thank you!
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.
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.
