FireMon expands API integrations for increased security, flexibility
FireMon announced at RSA Conference 2020 expanded capabilities for API integrations with ServiceNow, Cisco ACI and Swimlane to help customers improve network security visibility, control, and efficiency while maximizing the value of their investments in security and IT service management systems.
The FireMon API provides security professionals unlimited flexibility to customize change management workflows, increase visibility across tools and infrastructures, and maximize resources and cost efficiencies.
“In today’s hyperconnected world where the speed of business is accelerating faster than ever before, APIs are an essential connection to furthering digital transformations,” said Tim Woods, vice president of technology alliances at FireMon.
“Leveraging our strong API integrations enables enterprises to optimize their security postures, maximize their resources, and securely drive forward business innovation and growth.”
FireMon offers a robust set of API integrations that dramatically increase security, provide a new level of flexibility and help to accelerate security deployment timelines.
Providing industry-leading capabilities, FireMon supports out-of-the-box, API-driven, and custom integrations with an ecosystem of security operations technologies critical to threat detection, response, policy enforcement and IT service management.
IT Service Management (ITSM) integration with ServiceNow
Customers can work with their existing ServiceNow workflows to create policy-driven actions from FireMon Policy Planner, which enables security operations teams to implement changes with absolute precision across the rule lifecycle.
This integration also eliminates the need to create new workflows, while easily embedding security capabilities into current IT management processes in a shorter timeframe.
Software Defined Network (SDN) integration with Cisco ACI
The Cisco ACI integration can span across hybrid infrastructures, including physical, virtual, and multi-cloud environments to deliver consistent visibility, adaptive control via effective policy management, and application-centric security.
The integration increases overall enterprise security infrastructure and accessibility in one location and provides continuous compliance through adaptive network security enforcement.
SOAR integration with Swimlane
Provides a new highly integrated security, orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) workflow to decrease security operations process time. It supports continuous compliance through centralized collection and storing of security-related changes happening across the enterprise.
The integration also improves efficiencies by diversifying use cases for threat detection and mitigation and by better incorporating with SecOps teams to help manage future network changes and needs.
“The ability to easily exchange information between disparate security solutions through APIs can also increase the total value and efficiency of the combined solutions,” said Jeffrey Styles, vice president of global field engineering at FireMon.
“This idea has also been reinforced by analyst firms like Forrester, who say that it’s essential to have advanced security APIs to control and manage systems outside of an organization’s security infrastructure.”
