FireMon Scalability

It's very scalable. We have about 60 users configured and that's because everyone on both my team and the networking team has access to it. But we never have more than four concurrent users. We intend to increase usage, but the goal is to move down the path of integration with our ticketing solution and the actual firewalls themselves. Right now they communicate, but they're not necessarily integrated. Once we achieve that, then instead of network engineers logging into firewalls to do firewall things, they'll be shoehorned into performing everything that they're doing now within FireMon - meaning Security Manager - rather than it being something they pull up whenever they have a use for it. The intent is to make it more of a foundational piece of our operational procedures. View full review »

It's highly scalable, as long as you have servers. You can scale it to pretty much anything. We've had thousands of devices in it. View full review »

All the vendors in this space seem to overpromise and underdeliver on scalability. They all claim they scale the best, but none of them really do. This is an area that could be improved. It is the same with high availability. High availability for geographic separation is also an area that could be improved. Right now, at this stage, only our firewall admins are using it. This is a team of about 20. View full review »

It seems fairly scalable. There are not a whole lot of users. It is mainly just my team. Every once in a while, one of my users will submit a request for it, but that doesn't happen very often. It is primarily just my team. View full review »
