Lately, there has been a lot of discussion and interest on the blog around Firemon’s new Risk Analyzer product. While we are excited about bringing the fastest patented risk analysis and reduction engine to the market, we haven’t stopped developing new features in our flagship Security Manager product. The latest 5.3 release added support for both Palo Alto Networks Next Generation Firewall appliances and Fortinet firewall appliances, including support for Fortnet’s Virtual Domain (VDOM) technology. Firemon continues to be a customer focused organization, and we are excited to add support for these great products as requested by our customers.
We are also very excited about the future direction of Security Manager. Stay tuned for more updates around the integration of Risk Analyzer into Security Manager, and the awesome functionality that will provide organizations in proactively knowing what risks they could introduce when adding or changing firewall or network access rules. In a recent survey conducted by Ernst & Young, only 49% of respondents stated that their information security function is meeting the needs of the organization. The combination of Security Manager and Risk Analyzer enable any security group to quickly and easily know the status of their security posture, and to validate that their information security investment is in fact meeting the needs of the organization.
