FireMon is actively being used by our security team to enforce oversight and compliance standards for our firewall environment. Additional business units are also leveraging the solution to help with reporting. Change management will use the tool to identify rogue changes or changes that may have been implemented outside of our internal change management guidelines. Firewall admins will use the solution to improve the quality of the rules that they generate and to assist with the review and approval workflow. Compliance leverages the solution to help prioritize which devices may need more assistance or a greater amount of overhead needed to remediate.
The main benefit at this time is that it helps us help ourselves and reduce the amount of calories we burn each month or quarter in identifying what issues we need to address in our environment. Getting ready for audit, or quarterly reviews of devices is exponentially easier. Having the ability to automate many of our controls into our workflow on an ongoing basis also reduces the amount of time spent in each of those scheduled reviews/clean up efforts.
Very well suited for reporting, and identifying control failures. I can single-handedly do the analysis work of an entire remediation team - validate my findings, export the information in a format that is friendly to pass along to my admins, track remediation efforts, and update documentation - in one interface.
There are some areas in the reporting that could be tweaked a bit to provide more nimble output. FireMon has a wide variety of pre-generated reports that have a lot of value over the query based reporting. Many of those reports you can run against your entire enterprise, but some you can't....meaning you might have to duplicate the report for a handful of devices depending on your need.
FireMon, a network security policy management (NSPM) platform, is designed to bring visibility, control, and automation to enterprise cloud and hybrid network infrastructures.
The vendor states FireMon customers experience up to 90% improvements in network security policy efficiency while eliminating common misconfigurations which lead to breaches and compliance violations.
