CertiFire provides firewall setting, configuration and management capabilities

Skybox Security : 27 January, 2010  (New Product)
CertiFire firewall management software package from Skybox Security brings improved ability for risk mitigation and compliance management on firewalls
Skybox Security has announced general availability of Skybox CertiFire. For the first time, the enterprise-level features and performance of Skybox solutions are available in a package specifically designed for mid-size enterprises with several hundred employees or more.

CertiFire automatically collects and analyses firewall settings and configuration data to find potential security and compliance risks in minutes, rather than hours or days.

CertiFire addresses the need for mid-size enterprises to keep multiple firewalls secure and in compliance with policies, especially given the challenges of ensuring network availability and compliance with limited IT budgets and resources. CertiFire automates the most time-consuming firewall management tasks, providing accurate, complete, and action-oriented firewall information fast.

This easy-to-use product allows IT managers to automatically check firewalls in minutes, locating conflicting firewall rules, misconfigurations and other issues needing immediate attention. Prospective customers can download the product and try it out for a period of 14 days at no charge.

"Managing complex firewall deployments is not just a problem for large enterprises," says Scott Crawford, managing research director with Enterprise Management Associates. "It's an enterprise-class headache felt by mid-sized organizations as well. The challenge in this market is delivering realistic solutions appropriate to the need that also deliver a sufficiently comprehensive feature set. With the entrance of Skybox Security into the mid-market, many more companies can now take advantage of the Skybox feature-rich firewall management capabilities through a simple to use, downloadable product that was designed for the needs of this class of organization."

"We chose the CertiFire solution after a careful evaluation process," explains Rafi Hirsh, Manager of the IT Infrastructure and Security Department at Clalit Health Services, the largest HMO in Israel. "The product is very simple to deploy and presents results quickly in a standardized way. CertiFire improves firewall management and saves us time and money".

CertiFire delivers high performance and enterprise-level functionality in a package designed especially for mid-size organisations. It automatically analyses firewall settings in minutes instead of hours, allowing IT teams to resolve firewall configuration and compliance issues before they cause harm.

CertiFire delivers advanced analytics and enterprise-level features that have been stress-tested for years in some of the most challenging networks in the world. It is extremely easy to install and maintain, providing critical firewall information with minimal effort.

"Mid-market companies may have 10 or 20 firewalls, rather than hundreds, but they are subject to the same security challenges and regulatory requirements as large enterprises," explained Gidi Cohen, CEO of Skybox Security. "That's why we designed CertiFire, and we are delighted to see that the response has been very positive from mid-market customers around the world."
