Overall Satisfaction with FireMon

We use FireMon Security Manager, not only for our internal FW administration but also as part of our Managed Services. More specifically, it's part of our offer for managed firewalls service. This allows us to include more task to offer in the service like periodically cleaning firewall policies and other complains repots, i.e PCI reports.
  • TFA reports - show very detailed information that allows the admin to replace a wide-open FW policy to one or several accurate and narrow FW policies.
  • Change reports - In a very simple way, shows clearly who made what change and when. Also, it's able to highlight changes made between not consecutive configurations.
  • Dashboards - Allows us to drill-down in a simple and intuitive way, find the information needed in an investigation or any other search.
  • For TFA logging if we can have more options to run to choose, not only 1 day, 1 week, 1 month.
I'd like a better way to increase the licenses in MSSP firewall model, to manage multi-tenancy in an easy way.
  • Positive, a faster way to complete firewall reviews with less technical resources.
For our organization, it makes a lot of sense because our expertise is not across all firewall vendors. FireMon's tools allow the analysis of the different type of FW devices
After using FireMon to perform quarterly firewall reports, we've reduced admin time by half.
We have benefitted when co-administration exists for a network or security device. Between different areas inside a company or with a third party, the risk of misconfigurations and human errors increases. Having the possibility to have scheduled and automated reports being emailed to stakeholders when a non-approved or other defined type of change happens allows the company to contain and control the issue.
Well suited in firewalls with legacy configurations, for companies that are PCI compliant and need specific reports for internal/external audits, or for companies with co-administration.
Less appropriate for new network and security implementations.
