I am a contractor and I work on security. At this company, we primarily use FireMon for firewall rule analysis and as part of our firewall rule certification process. Our environment is on-premises using VM hosts.

We use the Security Manager module. We use it to report and audit firewall changes. We also use it to track the hygiene of our firewalls in addition to the changes made to them. Since it normalizes the firewall config, we are able to do custom searches and make custom controls to build out those audits and reports, making sure that we are applying firewall rules correctly. There are a lot of built-in reports as well, which help us to identify rules and objects that are being used. We are an enterprise environment. We are definitely not the largest of FireMon's customers, deployment-wise.

We have a single server and we're a small group. We use FireMon to track all of our firewall rule changes. The security section lets you see where your unused rules are and it lets us go in there, optimize it, and make the firewall more secure.

We act as a business partner for our clients. We're implementors. Each client has a different use case.

The primary use case is for compliance and monitoring of firewall changes. This solution allows us to secure our firewalls.

The primary use case is optimizing firewall rules.

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.

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.

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.
