Our Approach to Intelligent Security Management

We know that enterprise security teams are under more pressure than ever. Networks are growing more complex as are the compliance regulations keeping them in check. Attacks are increasing in both volume and frequency, creating an avalanche of threat data that’s impossible to keep up with. To stay on top of it all, while also meeting the demands of the business, requires more than just the right tools and people. It requires more intelligent management.

Vulnerability & Risk Management


Too many risks to manage?

Put out the fire before it starts.

Outside threats have the potential to scale the wall through any access point on the network. However, not all threats are created equal. If the asset is of high value, customer credit card info for example, its compromise would have a bigger impact than that of a lesser-value asset.

FireMon allows network and security teams to map the potential paths an attacker could take based on real-time configuration data and vulnerability scanner feeds. Then it helps prioritize the gaps for remediation, so the most impactful get taken care of first.

How We Do It

  • Reachability analysis calculates how easy it would be for an attacker to reach assets through and assess the potential damage
  • Graphical attack paths trace the possible path an attacker might use and identifies where an attack can be stopped with the least amount of time and effort
  • Risk scoring measures attack simulations for risk and impact. Re-score once you make improvements to determine the impact of the change.
  • Patch simulation patches systems virtually so you can compare various patch scenarios to prioritize efforts to those with the biggest impact
  • Access path analysis traces all potential traffic paths, identifies problematic routes and then recommends adjustments to redirect access

  • 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.
