Network complexity is one of the biggest threats to IT security assurance, and nowhere is this threat more evident than in the enterprise, nor more significant than in assuring confidence in network security systems themselves. With the introduction of Security Manager 7.0 and Policy Planner 3.0 announced in February 2013, FireMon specifically targets enterprise and MSSP concerns. Building on the combination of risk analysis and network security posture management developed through Security Manager versions 6.0 and 6.1 released in 2012, this latest FireMon release introduces the continuous assessment capability needed in complex networks, best-practices modeling that embraces a control-oriented rather than device-oriented approach, business process technology standards for integrating with change management and service support, and other features that give enterprises and MSSPs a platform aligned with the more strategic approach required to manage large or complex environments. Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) summarizes these new capabilities in light of the value that complex network security configuration control brings not only to enterprise security, but also to the reliability and performance of IT in delivering business priorities at scale.
