Overall Satisfaction with FireMon

Haven't had to use support too much and when we do they are very responsive and resolve any issues quickly.
I am a network security engineer for a large ISP and we recently implemented FireMon in our network to help manage our firewalls. We are a growing company and this product helps us consolidate our firewalls to give us a better understanding of how they are being used and how often.
  • FireMon gives a great overview of all firewalls on the network.
  • FireMon tells us what rules are and aren't being used to help us keep our policies manageable.
  • FireMon gives us a better understanding of what areas might need more security.
  • It's great that it can tell us what rules are redundant but it doesn't lay out the rules side by side.
  • Could provide more online training like videos and documentation, to maximize our use of FireMon.
  • FireMon helps us save money by not spending money on more unnecessary equipment. Instead, it gives us the ability to maximize our firewalls by the ability to merge firewalls together because they were being underutilized.
We didn't have to evaluate another product. We liked what FireMon could do and what it could add to our network security team. It was the sexy user interface that really sold us.
We were getting to migrate from one firewall to another and so we went in and removed all the unused rules and redundant rules. By doing this, it made the migration period much shorter and we knew that the rules that we migrating were accurate.
