National Insurance Provider

Use Case
  • Clean Up & Audit Firewall Policies
  • Intelligently Automate Policy Changes
  • Assess for Policy Compliance
Products Used
The Problem

This national insurance provider had three problems to tackle regarding their firewall policies. First, the number of rules under management was overwhelming staff and processes. They needed to increase visibility and effectiveness of their firewall change request/workflow ticketing process. And they also need help maintaining compliance PCI DSS requirements.

The Solution

FireMon Security Manager enabled the customer to analyze all of their policies for usage and effectiveness. This resulted in an average reduction of policy size of 33%.

Policy Planner gave them a change management workflow system that allowed them to process incoming requests, review the rule base for similar or existing access and design rules they know comply with external and internal requirements.

Finally, with Policy Optimizer in place, they had a built-in system for reviewing, recertifying and decommissioning rules per PCI requirements. The customer is now confident that they maintain 100% PCI compliance across their entire firewall infrastructure.

Managed Service Provider

Use Case
  • Migrate & Upgrade Firewalls
  • Manage Multi-Vendor Firewall Environments
Products Used
The Problem

Each time this Global MSP engaged a new customer, they had to onboard the firewalls – sometimes hundreds per engagement – into their network. Part of the onboarding process required assessing the policies against internal best practices – a manual, line-by-line process that took an average of 16 hours/firewall and was extremely error-prone.

Ignoring this task or making mistakes during the process would result in a breakdown of basic security posture, outages and overall lack of customer satisfaction – an extremely important metric for MSPs who are focused on customer retention and service renewals.

The Solution

With FireMon Security Manager, the MSPs engineers were able to automate the gap analysis by first uploading the internal best practices – a one-time task. Then, for each new firewall, they were able to upload the policies and configurations and Security Manager produced a gap analysis report in a format that is ready for review with the customer, reducing the time it takes to run the report to just 30 minutes with zero oversights or mistakes. This improved the productivity of the engineering group and eliminated the possibility of embarrassing mistakes and/or resulting breaches – all of which increase the customer’s confidence in their services.

The Result

FireMon’s Security Manager automated the tedious, manual process of assessing compliance with internal best practices during the firewall onboarding process, resulting in a 90% time savings and no mistakes.
