Overall Satisfaction with FireMon

FireMon Security Manager is being used across the whole organization. It is used to keep track of every firewall policy and what each one does. With more than 23,000 employees, there are a lot of firewalls used on our network.
  • FireMon Security Manager does a great job in validating firewall policies against regulatory requirements and in the utility business there is a lot of regulation to comply to. I think this is a strength because it's getting harder and harder to follow up on all regulation that applies.
  • FireMon Security Manager does a pretty good analysis of all the firewall configurations and it helps to identify rules that are hidden, too permissive or shadowed. It helps keep the firewall configurations clean at all time.
  • Easier to demonstrate when required that our firewall policies comply with regulatory requirements.
Technically speaking FireMon Security Manager scored higher than the AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer. It is also less expensive than other solutions.
Very helpful when audit are taking place.
