FireMon + Microsoft Azure

Comprehensive firewall rule management to reduce risk, manage change, and enforce compliance

See it in Action

Manage policy through a single interface – across Microsoft Azure cloud-based firewalls and cloud security groups


Simplify & Automate Firewall Policy Management

Every day, enterprise network environments become increasingly complex due to the constant introduction of new devices, applications, and cloud services. Manual tools are not sufficient to keep up with the pace, leaving firewall and security policies nearly impossible to manage and open the door to compliance violations and misconfigurations that can lead to unplanned outdates and data breaches. To mitigate these risks, FireMon Security Manager is essential in enabling Microsoft Azure users to efficiently manage policies to eliminate policy-related risk, accurately change rules, and meet internal and external compliance requirements.

The FireMon-Microsoft Azure partnership enables companies to effectively manage the complexity of firewall policies to:

  • Reduce policy related risk by finding high-risk vulnerabilities embedded in firewall policies
  • Manage firewall rule changes and policies that span Microsoft Azure and devices from other vendors
  • Achieve and maintain compliance of firewall policies with internal and external standards
  • Migrate firewall policy to Microsoft Azure to simplify rule review, cleaning, and staging for migration
  • Manage multi-vendor firewall policy by gathering devices and policies across the entire environment with built-in support for 80 vendors

Reduce Policy Risk

FireMon complements Microsoft Azure firewalls by offering policy evaluation, to identify risk related items and unnecessary complexity that can lead to misconfiguration and human error.

  • Attack policy complexity and reduce risk
  • Reduce policy complexity that can lead to increased risk
  • Eliminate high risk, overly permissive rules
  • Ensure dormant unused rules are not available for potential exploitation
  • Remove shadow rules that can be misleading if performing manual policy analysis

Manage Change

FireMon gathers rules and policies from every firewall across the environment, including Microsoft Azure firewalls and firewalls from other vendors, then stores them in a centralized rule repository.

With this customers can:

  • Automate rule change workflows that span the entire rule creation and change process
  • Policy change automation recommends rules and can optionally deploy them to devices across the network

Achieve and Maintain Compliance

Enforce security and compliance across a range of network devices, whether an entire network is 100%  Microsoft Azure firewalls and Microsoft Azure firewall management consoles, or a combination of various vendors.

With FireMon, customers can:

  • Produce accurate compliance reports in minutes
  • Run built-in or customized reports for standards including PCI DSS, NERC-CIP, NIST, and GDPR
  • Identify policy violation in existing rules and catch new ones before they’re deployed
  • Automate rule reviews and recertification
