OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - Secure Passage, the leading provider of firewall policy, risk, and compliance management solutions, announced today that it is changing its company name to FireMon, effective immediately. FireMon serves more than 300 enterprise customers and manages more than 40,000 firewalls worldwide.

The company delivered the industry's first firewall change-management solution, FireMon, in 2001. "In the years since we first released the FireMon product, the FireMon brand strengthened so much that we were known mostly by our product name," stated President and CTO Jody Brazil. "As Secure Passage grew to address the evolving needs of the firewall management community, it became clear that the vision of FireMon encompassed the vision of the company: to improve security with better management. It just made sense to transition the company name to FireMon."

Company management remains unchanged, and FireMon continues to focus on providing premier security analysis and compliance solutions. "The primary discernable change that our customers will see," said Brazil, "is the use of the FireMon company name and the new logo on our website and other materials."

In addition to transitioning its name, the company is rebranding its flagship product as 'FireMon Security Manager.' "As we transitioned the FireMon brand to represent the company, we needed to update our product name for clarity," said Matt Dean, COO of FireMon. "The software product that our customers have come to know and rely on will not change. But by renaming it 'FireMon Security Manager,' we maintain brand continuity while distinguishing our solution as a product under the FireMon name."

Beginning today, the company has launched an updated website which can be found at www.firemon.com. Effective immediately, all future business activity will be conducted using the new name. There has been no change in the company's management or ownership.
