Overall Satisfaction with FireMon

FireMon is being used within my team. It allows us to view all of our rules in one console and run queries against those rules.
  • Runs queries against existing rules.
  • Requires a lot of care and feeding, often our log collector disconnects and must be reconnected.
  • Service Packs are required to be added/updated much too often.
  • Whenever we make any changes in our firewall environment, FireMon takes a ton of time to get working properly again.
  • The canned queries are lacking, more should be added and improved.
FireMon isn't an intuitive tool and wouldn't be much use across departments outside of IT.
  • Reduced number of unused rules.
Tufin works much better with CheckPoint.
If the information is in FireMon, I can run an unused rule report which helps with rule cleanup.
