FireMon Review

It’s helpful during our firewall and network devices audit.

What is most valuable?

Security Manager: It effectively manages the complexity and change associated with today’s network security infrastructure and has a good hold in the market.

How has it helped my organization?

It’s very helpful during our firewall and network devices audit, and also beneficial when backup is required of network security devices.

What needs improvement?

I am desperately looking forward to seeing FireMon considered as a good backup solution for network security devices, which can store up to the last 10 incremental backups. This way, the business can grow with multiple solutions to customer.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using it for five years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I have not really encountered any deployment, stability or scalability issues. Installation and upgrade are quite simple and easy.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is satisfactory.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously we were using AlgoSec, but it requires to be updated from time to time. Also, it wasn’t found to be a fruitful solution and has a lot of room for improvement.

How was the initial setup?

We recently installed FireMon on VMware architecture and it was very smooth and without issues.

What about the implementation team?

Implementation was easy and documents are available in FireMon Center, so the in-house support team implemented it without any issues.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Per-device license is little costly, but with such good features it’s understandable.

What other advice do I have?

It is a good solution for audit trails and end-user visibility.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
