FireMon Valuable Features

The most valuable feature is the reporting capability because everything that we do is a result of our being able to query a report, based on our environment and our PCI compliance efforts. View full review »

I'm working mostly with the Security Manager part of FireMon. It gives me an eye on everything that's out there, everything that I cannot see. Because I'm not a network admin, I cannot go to a firewall itself, but at least I have FireMon so that I can go in and view everything that I want to view. And I can eliminate whatever I see that is wrong. We also use FireMon to conduct a full inventory of our assets so that we can secure everything. For example, our parent company has three retail brands. The other day, my director asked me for an inventory of all brands: every firewall, Cisco device, whatever we are using, and to give him a break down. I was able to go to FireMon, grab everything, put it in an Excel sheet, and break it down by brand and by DMZ and PCI environment as well. In addition, it's very easy to navigate. Very easy.

I have found the reporting on unused rules and redundant rules to be the most useful to me. We run those reports and then we can come back and fix things that are bad. And overall, the reporting mechanism for anything is pretty good. We use it to baseline, to make sure our configs are accurate across all of our devices. It provides us with a single pane of glass for our on-prem environment, to see configuration. We have not implemented into the cloud yet. We can search for an object group and see where it lives on any firewall in the enterprise, or find security rules no matter what firewall they're on. We don't use the automation feature, which means we don't do a deployment of any changes, so we don't yet have a single pane for deploying all policies. We know it's capable, it's just that we don't have that function on. View full review »

The policy overview is the most valuable feature for each of the firewalls that we manage right now, as it reduces the complexity of the firewall rule set. View full review »

The most valuable feature is being able to review all the firewall changes in the Policy Planner, and then in the policy review feature. This solution provide us with comprehensive visibility of all our devices in a hybrid network. It is fairly straightforward to use. View full review »
