Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management

Scenarios most suited -1) All the Cyber Security focused development environments2) Definitely a must for Financial Clients since it deals with live money transactions - Hence it is imperative to keep the Network and tech asset environment secure, and compliant to standards3) IAM is another area where it plays an IMP part - For eg one of our healthcare clients where they wanted to restrict access4) Dashboards are also great, we can share the results to GISO/CISO level folks - Custom dashboard feature

FireMon

The networking team needed insight into traffic for a particular application and had reached out to see if FireMon could provide insight into the traffic flow to help with troubleshooting. It simply made a traffic report that was auto emailed to the team about the issue, and it gave great insight on how often it was being used.

Pros

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management

  • Integration with public cloud providers.
  • Rich UI with great dashboards.
  • Great assets inventory.
  • Clarity module.

FireMon

  • PCI Reporting - After identifying which firewalls and rulesets are in scope, producing a report artifact to satisfy PCI requirements on Firewall reviews is literally a two-click operation.
  • Storing Rule Metadata - FireMon stores metadata (prefilled fields, standard fields, and custom fields) for each rule in each policy which is valuable for context during firewall reviews in particular
  • API - FireMon exposes most if not all of its functionality via REST API

Cons

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management

  • There is not a comprehensive amount of documentation on how to set up best practices.
  • Our initial set up assistance from Proofpoint approved vendor did not go smoothly.
  • The ability to add more customized widgets in the main overview screen would be helpful.

FireMon

  • Some features could be added to the existing functionality which include NAT rules usage
  • Rule expiration normalization from firewalls rather than entering them in rule documentation
  • .csv exports of the files from the firewall pane only gives usage for 30 days by default and that should be increased

I would give a 10 but if for some crazy reason Firemon does not add support for Firepower (without using FMC) before renewal then we'd have a major problem but I have absolute confidence this will not be an issue

FireMon technical support is awesome! They respond quickly to our requests and they are well trained and very knowledgeable about the tool. Some issues have to be referred to the development team, but technical support largely provides solutions for any issues that we may have.

Alternatives Considered

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management

First and foremost reason of our client selecting CheckPoint CloudGuard Posture Management / Dome9 was because they already had CheckPoint Firewalls which are in active use e.g. R75.40 and R82.x products. Customization Vs these other Vendors is another great assetReporting is one more standout feature, + Multi-cloud capabilities Centralized dashboarding is smooth to navigate as compared to other VendorsSyslog handling is much better as compared to some other vendors , Memory and space issues if planned well are less

FireMon

I has worked with AlgoSec and while they are very similar product, I find the FireMon is easier to understand and get rolling with. While both require some learning, FireMon is by far the easier one. Once you have an understanding of how things are arranged and labeled you can easily import firewalls and begin to work on them to improve them

Firemon Is easily scalable and maintainable with any size team. Although it requires some tech debt, it is well worth the time to invest to ensure compliance is visible and reports are accurate. Although our environment is very large we do not fully utilize the scalability of the Firemon product.

Return on Investment

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management

  • For production environments it is worth the investment.
  • Getting to know how many assets you have helps with cost savings.
Oscar Martinez | TrustRadius Reviewer

FireMon

  • The use of FireMon has eliminated the backlog in firewall policy changes, approval, and implementation.
  • FireMon has greatly increased the accuracy of changes, and reduced the risk of planned changes (3 incidents in over 27000 change tickets--most with multiple policy changes in each, is a stellar record)
