Infosecurity Europe: Westcon deal will help companies make better use of what security tech they already have in fighting threats
US security firm FireMon has entered the UK with a distribution agreement with Westcon. FireMon’s UK entry was announced at this week’s Infosecurity Europe 2016 show in London.
The company addresses network security infrastructure, policy and risk management issues with a suite of products that arm security and IT personnel with contextual intelligence to identify threats within their networks and to make quick decisions.
Its full range of products will be distributed by WestConGroup through its Westcon Security Solutions portfolio.
“Organisations have invested millions in defence technologies and equipment often solving just one security issue at a time,” said Ottavio Camponeschi, VP EMEA, FireMon. “Disparate layers of prevention tools – hardware and software based – firewalls, IPS, web gateway protection, anti-intrusion and so forth have created a complex, unmanageable environment.
“This complexity is exactly the problem facing the market today. Despite massive investments in defences organisations are still vulnerable, and that’s where FireMon’s technology can help.”
FireMon’s suite of security management products allows customers to increase their security posture by connecting all the dots of disparate networking technologies into one heterogeneous environment. It is a complete package of policy analysis, risk management and automated change workflows, that gives security professionals a centralised view of the traffic, rule usage and changes happening across their environment.
“The reality is that IT managers and CISOs already have the tools at their disposal to secure their organisations, but they have not been configured or managed to effectively meet the changing demands of the business,” said Camponeschi.
“By working with channel partners, I am confident that we will deliver the right products to not only meet these market demands, but also enable organisations to realise greater operational efficiencies and a lower total cost of ownership.”
