FireMon Primary Use Case

Daniel James
Security Engineer at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees
We use FireMon for compliance reporting. Also, because it provides a roadmap for us to start doing workflow automation - not to be confused with other forms of automation that occur in the firewall realm - we use it to see the processes and procedures that we can automate and enforce. These include approval processes, review processes, and pre- and post-implementation validation. View full review »

We use it to go through unused rules, for cleaning up stuff. We have a bi-weekly meeting where we go through firewalls and look for any unused rules or any rules that are redundant and any high ports that are being used that we're not supposed to use. View full review »

We use it for firewall cleanup, redundant rule removal, and unused rule removal. We are using the solution to identify anything that might have overly permissive rules or things outside of PCI compliance. We use it to proactively find those kinds of issues. There's more we could be doing with it for sure, we just haven't had the time yet. We currently have it covering every single firewall we have, which is a lot. There are potential plans to add routers and switches into it again, or even start adding in hybrid cloud solutions, things like that, that we won't be able to see. Honestly, we won't have a single pane of glass without FireMon, so we do have intentions of deploying it at a larger scale, and actually turning on some of those features which we don't use today.
