Nguyen Thac Nam, CEO of Nessar Vietnam said, “Currently, organisations often rely on a combination of manual procedures and various tools to manage the policies and rules within their security system. This leads to labor-intensive and highly ineffective security system operations, unnecessary complexity, increased risk of misconfiguration, and creates vulnerabilities that can be exploited by attackers.”

“With FireMon’s solution, we believe that our customers will be able to solve these problems, minimise the risks, and improve the security of their systems,” Nam continued.

Le Xuan Que, deputy director of Viettel IDC added, “The collaboration with FireMon and Nessar aims to enhance and diversify Viettel IDC’s cybersecurity, complementing its in-house solutions. With this cooperation, we believe that customers in Vietnam will benefit from breakthrough network security solutions that not only optimise management but also effectively monitor and protect their network systems.”

FireMon’s solutions help remove 80 per cent of security policy misconfiguration issues, optimise system operation with 90 per cent automation during policy creation, and improve system complexity by 40 per cent by eliminating unnecessary policies. With these outstanding capabilities, customers are able to operate their systems with high efficiency, safety, and cost optimisation.

Shikwang (SK) Jang, Asia-Pacific vice president of FireMon said, “We are delighted to collaborate with Nessar and Viettel IDC to bring FireMon’s 22 years of experience in network security policy management solutions to customers in Vietnam.”

“With Nessar and Viettel IDC’s experience in IT and network security solutions, we believe that this collaboration will deliver incredible value to our customers and considerably boost our capacity to safeguard networks and data in Vietnam. As customers’ systems become increasingly large and complex, many administrators encounter misconfigurations in firewalls or other network devices, which can create vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit to infiltrate their systems. This is one of the many different challenges that the FireMon solution can comprehensively address,” Jang said.
