Automating Rule Recertification with Policy Optimizer
Firewall policy management becomes increasingly complex as new rules are added to support access requests and changing business demands. The problem is these rules are rarely reviewed or removed, increasing exposure to risk. When they are reviewed, IT teams are left stringing together email chains, spreadsheets and proprietary knowledge to determine why the rule exists and if it should be renewed. FireMon Policy Optimizer automates this entire process, creating a single workflow for firewall rule review, recertification and removal, so IT teams can quickly validate current access configurations with stakeholders and identify and eliminate risky rules.
