Better Security Through More Effective Firewall Management

The FireMon platform allows you to monitor and assess the effectiveness of your network device congfigurations, giving you continuous visibility into and control over firewall infrastructure, network security policies and underlying IT risks.

Give it a try today.
Welcome to FireMon

Network security infrastructure is rapidly growing in complexity and changing to meet evolving security needs. This can lead to reactive, inefficient security policies that open your network up to risk. With the FireMon platform, you get continuous, real-time visibility into your existing security infrastructure so you can proactively identify redundant, risky and out-of-date policies. The result is more effective security and firewall management, lower cost of operations and reduced exposure to risk.

Capabilities Designed for Today’s Complex, Ever-Changing Networks

The FireMon Security Intelligence Platform offers a set of feature-rich capabilities that enable practitioners to effectively manage firewall policies and changes, ensure network compliance and assess network risk.

Firewall Policy Management Capabilities

FireMon’s firewall policy analysis and reporting capabilities provide practitioners with detailed understanding of existing network defenses to eliminate necessary network access and improve overall performance.
Identify any unused rules in your existing firewall policies to prevent unseen gaps in defense and reduce unnecessary complexity.
Discover hidden rules that make your firewall policies less effective, increasing visibility and informing proper documentation.
Leverage FireMon’s proprietary Security Information Query Language (SiQL) to locate and examine any existing firewall policies.
Gauge the efficacy of your existing firewall policies, including comparative scoring, to understand current access enforcement.
Map and analyze all access paths created by your existing firewall policies to ensure proper network defense and segmentation.
Trace the source and destination of every rule in each of your existing firewall policies (including NAT) to understand traffic flow.
Examine all rule sets applied within your existing firewall policies to continually assess and improve network enforcement.
Aggregate detailed documentation of all rules applied within your existing firewall policies to maintain a comprehensive repository.
Pre-approve existing firewall rules and policies specific to your environment to speed analysis and ongoing management.

Network Compliance & Audit Capabilities

With FireMon’s policy compliance assessment capabilities, practitioners can validate firewall configuration against compliance requirements with rules recertification and full documentation.
Identify and document every rule in your existing firewall policies to both achieve and report on compliance requirements.
Leverage predefined best practice analysis, standards-based assessments and reporting to audit your existing firewall policies.
Isolate and visualize access-based exposures related to your existing firewall policies to prioritize vulnerability mitigation.
Define and employ unique security controls for customized, repeatable analysis and reporting of your existing firewall policies.
Analyze and understand the effectiveness of rules incorporated in your existing firewall policies to ensure optimal compliance.
Leverage full visibility across all of your existing firewall policies to inform ongoing change and ensure effective implementation.

Firewall Change Management Capabilities

The FireMon platform integrates with policy management workflows to give practitioners visibility into the implications of each change prior to change implementation.
Isolate, document and, when necessary, alert on every ongoing change implemented throughout your existing firewall policies.
Review every proposed rule change against your existing firewall policies to ensure consistency and prevent redundancy.
Evaluate every proposed text edit against your existing firewall policies to ensure consistency and prevent redundancy.
Perform proactive what-if impact analysis of any proposed changes to your existing firewall policies, prior to implementation.
Retain the ability to audit every change made to your existing firewall policies with full search and historical event logs.
Monitor, alert and document all ongoing changes made to your existing firewall policies to verify proper implementation.
Create detailed documentation of all changes to your existing firewall policies to track, search and understand revisions.
Employ fully customizable workflow process automation for all ongoing changes made to your existing firewall policies.
Automate workflow and recertification of your existing firewall policies to validate ongoing standards compliance (PCI DSS).
Utilize standards-based (BPMN 2.0) integration with your existing firewall policy workflow (e.g. ticketing) management processes.

Network Security & Risk Analysis Capabilities

FireMon visualizes access controls so practitioners can see potential attack paths and prioritize vulnerability remediation. With the addition of Immediate Insight, users can also perform real-time security event analysis.
Leverage network-wide visibility into your existing firewall policies to prioritize mitigation based on current access levels.
Understand the specific risks introduced by your existing firewall policies by simulating potential network attack paths.
Chart the specific attack paths open across your existing firewall policies to produce detailed threat route visualizations.
Isolate access-based risks based on your existing firewall policies, gaining the ability to rapidly mitigate problems by adapting rules.
