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

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

Palo Alto Networks Prisma Cloud

  • Efficient and real-time--Palo Alto Networks Prisma Cloud monitors the multi-cloud environment in real time without any lag. The radar in the tool is a single pane of glass for all the containers and images in all your environments. Radar gives a 50,000 foot view at a glance and lets you know what the pain points are in the environment and where more focus is required.
  • Serverless functions and static repositories are supported out of the box. The user needs to make a successful connection, and after that, the tool continuously monitors the functions and repositories at all times and provides alerts and incidents in case something major is happening in the environment.
  • Minimalistic Graphical User Interface--Lets the user do a lot with fewer clicks. You can easily navigate through the tool with relatively few clicks and get your work done.
  • A number of authentication mechnisms are supported out of the box, one of which--AD authentication--is the most popular.

Cons

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

Palo Alto Networks Prisma Cloud

  • IAM control need enhancement as there are few features missing
  • Support on all Container solution such as Pivotal PCF
  • Number of Security Policy for scanning is less and required more policy to identify a security issue
  • Cloud is not hosted in India
  • Firewall Policy on Container required some enhancement for blocking communication between workload
  • Enabling Proxy for connecting on-prem workload container to cloud
  • Solution should not require write access to a cloud account. It should have capabilities of using existing cloud API for remediation or making changes on Cloud

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

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

Scalability

FireMon

FireMon 8.1
Based on 37 answers
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

  • 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)
