OVERLAND PARK, KS and GAITHERSBURG, MD--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2014) - FireMon, the leading provider of proactive security intelligence solutions, is partnering with Conquest Security to deliver FireMon Security Manager and Risk Analyzer to federal sector IT organizations. This partnership reinforces FireMon's commitment to helping federal agencies meet DHS Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) recommendations and provide agencies of all sizes with a broad range of acquisition options.

Conquest Security is an information security consulting firm serving government and commercial enterprise organizations. The company's goal is to help clients focus on their greatest information security risks, defend against attacks and exploitations, improve systems availability and resiliency, and reduce costs. Founded in 2005 and based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, Conquest Security is an SBA 8(a) Certified Business.

"Our holistic approach to information security emphasizes good systems management, automated security controls, continuous testing and education," said Mark Williamson, Managing Partner at Conquest Security. "We provide advanced products, professional services and real-world training that enables our clients to improve visibility into IT operations and deploy effective and automated security controls, continuously and automatically tested for effectiveness. We are pleased to partner with FireMon to offer Security Manager and Risk Analyzer to agencies that rely on SBA 8(a) businesses as trusted advisors to help them meet their mission, operations and continuous monitoring objectives."

"Point-in-time data is great for demonstrating compliance or understanding a past event, but it does nothing to proactively make you more secure," said Jody Brazil, president and CTO of FireMon. "The hallmark of FireMon's Security Intelligence Platform is its ability to understand both risk and vulnerability on a continuous and historical basis -- and at a massive scale that analyzes millions of vulnerabilities in just minutes. Offering actionable intelligence that streamlines manual processes to make better security decisions is the key factor behind our tremendous traction in the federal government. We look forward to partnering with Conquest Security to secure our nation's cyber assets and information."

Security Manager and Risk Analyzer allow federal agencies to automate security device management and vulnerability risk analysis -- 2 key requirements of the $6 billion DHS CDM program -- by quickly identifying, understanding and managing changes in overall security posture. Unlike reactive approaches that simply log past events, Security Manager enables users to understand and fix configuration, policy and risk exposures in real-time. Risk Analyzer offers patented risk analysis capabilities that identify and prioritize vulnerabilities on key IT assets that are reachable by adversaries, ensuring that the highest level risks are mitigated first.
