We like that we have been able to identify risky rules, based on the criteria we have set. We also like the ability to push policies from AlgoSec to the firewalls to ensure risky policies are never created in the first place. That's a feature that will help us in the future as well. We are moving towards an automated environment so the ability to work with Ansible, ServiceNow, and Palo Alto gives us the ability to automate our firewall policy creation. And it does so in a manner where we do not have to worry about a policy being created that may put our organization at risk. View full review »

We loved the automatic policy or network topology change features in the AlgoSec appliance. It detects the changes and alerts when someone is trying to make changes in the firewalls or network devices during abnormal change-time windows. It detects if the requested network and ports are getting blocked by the network or firewalls by a simple query, which helps to identify the network blocking firewalls in the topology.

Currently, we are using almost all the features of the product to take as much advantage as we can of what it offers. But our primary use is compliance reporting and the Firewall Analyzer helps us achieve our various IT compliance requirements, like ISO-27001. View full review »
Andre Santiago says in an AlgoSec review
Senior Consultant at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most valuable feature is that the tool is capable of simplifying firewall management and configuration in an automated fashion. Additionally, the fact that it is also possible to implement a FW management workflow clearly supports the improvement of the 'way of working' and operation of the FW environment. View full review »

Network Administrator at a government with 10,001+ employees
This appliance has a lot of great features to offer. You can buy the physical appliance or VM depending on your company requirements. Features we like are: * Multi-approval AlgoSec Fireflow rule creation system. The end-user can only implement the rule if it is approved by all of the IT groups. * Very good integration with other vendor's products like Cisco or Palo Alto Firewalls. * This Appliance gives you the full Network MAP, which is obtainable from the Routing table. * It is easy to find whether a security policy is blocked, as well as where and by which device.

The simplicity, efficiency, and effectiveness of it are valuable. There are a lot of templates that are already built-in. They give you quick-to-create and quick-to-apply policies that are typically a little more complicated for people. View full review »

Security Engineer at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
The feature we find the most valuable is the Firewall Analyzer. This helps us know which devices are between the source and destination on the flows that we need to open for the business. The audit tools are also very important to us because we can easily have everything that needs to be presented to the security auditors. We are in the process of implementing FireFlow in our daily operation, which will make our lives even easier. The idea is to search the Firewall Analyzer for the equipment between the source and destination, and then automatically jump off to FireFlow and open a ticket. This will then automatically implement what is needed without the need to go into the Firewall itself. This will save us a lot of time and will help us to onboard junior engineers very quickly, getting them up to speed on our network and daily operation in record time. Until now we are very satisfied and surprised about the results we have been having with FireFlow, and expect to be fully working with this tool within the next three months. View full review »

Sharath K says in a Skybox Security Suite review
Sr. Consultant at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
For us, it's more important for our firewalls, to maintain the configuration compliance, to look at duplication of rules; clean up functionalities on the firewall and compliance of the firewall. That's where it's most important. We're still looking at making use of this tool for other purposes, but it's still a work in progress at this moment. We are using Network Assurance, primarily for our devices like routers and switches. Change Manager is still a work in progress for us. While we have that module, we're still working on customizing it. It's understandable and it works well, right now. We are looking at automating that whole change management procedure using a third-party API integration along with Skybox. So that's still a work in progress at the moment. View full review »
Joe Stehle says in a Tufin review
Network Infrastructure Engineer at a legal firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most valuable feature is alerting, which lets me know when someone has made a change. When something stops working I can see what has been done and by whom. This solution is easy to set up and use. It is very easy to see what has changed when comparing two different revisions. View full review »

User at a sports company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The automation of the firewall rule deployment, working together with our ticketing system, is the most valuable feature of this solution. The needs as required by a user request are automatically validated and configured in the specified firewalls without any human action. This improves the firewall team's workload. View full review »
Sergi Triguero says in an AlgoSec review
Service Delivery manager at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I think maybe FireFlow could be the most valuable feature according to to the feedback of our technical teams. This allows them to easily add, modify, and remove rules from the firewalls. Another good point is that we avoid the old procedure of end-user requesting rules, a security team in the middle validating, and then the final implementor doing the job. With this feature, you can directly permit the end-user to request what he/she needs, and if the security policy is respected it can directly be approved and implemented. View full review »
Mustafa Karanfil says in an AlgoSec review
Network Security Engineer at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
The most valuable feature is the reporting, including the policy report and regulatory compliance reports. In the Intelligent Policy Tuner, the tighten permissive rules tab allows us to reduce the number of rules in each policy. I can easily control, report, and reduce the rules for policies. Also in the Rules Cleanup tab, I am removing unused rules as I feel confident in deleting these types of rules. Our Information team read Regulatory Compliance Reports that can easily track the compliance status of each device. View full review »
Marcelo T says in an AlgoSec review
Network Engineer at a energy/utilities company with 10,001+ employees
FireFlow is the most valuable feature because we changed the way to set up rules on the firewalls. Additionally, we changed all the internal processes and now each employee can request, by himself, all flows needed for the business. AlgoSec is like a single pane of glass. View full review »

User at a wireless company with 10,001+ employees
The most valuable feature is traffic simulation because, with this function, it has become more practical to know if something is released or blocked in my environment. IPT is valuable because this function is of great help to have a more effective security policy. View full review »

Before this solution, we used Excel sheets. This approach did not provide ways to filter the options for implementing changes. The filtering of lots of criteria is very valuable. View full review »

What I really like about this program, is the easy integration of the firewalls and the core management interface, which is almost exactly the same as the single firewall. View full review »
Peter Cheng says in a Tufin review
Owner at SIS International HK Limited
The most valuable feature of this solution is the Interactive Map. The interactive map would show our network topology, which would benefit in terms of understanding our environment (especially for new staff) and first-level investigation (including end-to-end firewall path analysis).
