Overall Satisfaction with FireMon

Old, not well-documented SCADA system. Helped identify and mitigate security issues, firewall rule optimizations, etc. Compliance with DOE security framework.
  • Fast, easy drill down to problem hosts
  • Central dashboard of multiple interfaces for ease of monitoring and tracking
  • Even with older, not widely used applications integration and use was easy
  • None, well laid out and logical to use
  • Easy to ask questions of support staff, not a negative but all I can think of
I was involved with only a small part of what would be considered a small network, yet it still covered two states and nearly every type of network traffic. At our transfer rates, FireMon had no problems that I could see.
  • Verified firewall changes when phasing out unused/little used firewall rules.
  • Helped ensure no 'leaks' of traffic through same firewalls.
The system it was used on was very old and very unique software and traffic types/patterns. FireMon had no issues with the analyzing or monitoring of the same.
Used as a 'check and balance' with other tools to make 100% sure we were not missing things.
Integrated with parts of the DOE Cyber Security framework easily. Can point to reports from FireMon for SOX compliance.
It is used as a 'check and balance' with other software/hardware tools, invaluable in this role.

Do you think FireMon delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with FireMon's feature set?


Did FireMon live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of FireMon go as expected?


Would you buy FireMon again?


The Dell product ran on its own hardware, which failed often. The reports were not available to us in real-time, we had to request them. Many false detections of issues.
Great when testing new/changed firewall rules especially as a 'check and balance' with other network tools.
