Verdict: Worried about GDPR compliance? Don’t be as FireMon’s Intelligent Security Management (ISM) Platform keeps you ahead of the game with sophisticated firewall monitoring,
risk analysis and automated change management IT security professionals already faced with a mountain of data protection regulations will find their jobs are about to get a lot tougher. The EU GDPR (general data protection regulations) come into force in May 2018 and that means businesses of all sizes must protect against security breaches involving personal data or be hit hard with punitive fines. Firewalls are the first line of defense and it’s now imperative that administrators start working on compliance with clear and effective configuration and change management policies. This will be challenging in geographically distributed, multi-vendor environments and FireMon’s Intelligent Security Management Platform lightens the load by providing a suite of tools for firewall and network device visibility, compliance audits, risk analysis and change management. The complete suite is seamlessly integrated into a web-based management console that provides a single pane of glass view of your entire security infrastructure. ISM runs on FMOS (FireMon Operating System) – a hardened Linux OS based on CentOS which provides a highly scalable, distributed architecture capable of delivering real-time security intelligence and event analytics across thousands of firewalls.
