Cons

  • Enhanced integration via API (typically, this is only known by few Algosec users)
No photo available
  • Needs more supported devices and firewall supported vendors.
  • Needs to push other add on modules to show the full capability of the FireMon Security Manager. eg policy planner, policy optimiser, risk analysis.
  • Needs aggressive marketing in the Philippine Market. A lot of customers are not aware that there is a solution for firewall optimization and management.
  • A lot of add on features are not introduced or not being used by the customer.

The reason I rate FireMon so high overall because the support that this application provides me to accomplish my work is really solid. Anytime I've run into an issue using FireMon the support team was quick to respond and remediate the problem. Additionally, this tool is very user-friendly compared to other applications that are competitors to FireMon. The training that was provided to learn how to use FireMon was thorough and helpful in acquainting me with this application.
