Overall Satisfaction with FireMon

Cybersecurity and Network departments use the product, for auditing, keeping track of changes, security, real-time change information, historic log information, dupe rules/object cleanup. and long term trend reports.
  • Correlate large rule sets and uncountable objects into a human usable format
  • Allows you to pick a supplied compliance assessment and allows you to create a custom one to fulfill your needs
  • Gives you an Enterprise dashboard with percentages that you can drill down to the devices--as the rules are constantly changing to fit business needs this helps reduce security flaws a human will miss.
  • It centers on policy, compliance, and change--the three areas we all need help in.
  • Setting up a new compliance assessment or modifying an existing one
You count the current and new devices for the years and you're done. Not a set as in most other applications where you buy 10, 25, or 100, and end up paying for something you are not using.
  • Reduced audit compliance support time by 90%
  • Reduced firewall maintenance time by 50%
  • Reduce upper-management report time by 90%
We have Fortinet, Cisco, and Palo Alto in-house, and FireMon works with all of these. We are moving into the cloud now using Palo Alto, and we don't see any Issue adding this to FireMon.
We have daily reports (change reports delivered each morning and the color coding reduces the read time of these reports). We have weekly compliance and monthly unused reports that deduce staff time and in some cases show us information we would never have had the time to find without this tool.
Change control is the key to every security audit, and FireMon allows us and auditors to research all changes done. We created a company best practices compliance report and deliver it weekly to security and management.
FireMon red-flagged an issue we did have in our enterprise, and we were able to remove the to deduce security risks.
Nothing like FireMon. We have other tools but 99% of them are looking at specific areas and not the enterprise security on a dashboard.
It's a must-have tool for the security department.
