One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is AlgoSec vs FireMon. One user says about Algosec, "This product allowed us to identify unused rules more easily and doing this simplifies policies in our firewall. We now have documentation of our application with objects sync with real configuration."Another user says about FireMon, "The ability for spotting the shadowed-based rules helps us to eliminate overlapping rules that may not be otherwise needed or maybe under-used. It helps us to identify that stuff and gives us the ability to go back and audit the firewalls." In your experience, which is better and why?

One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is AlgoSec vs Tufin Which of these two solutions would you recommend for Firewall Security Management? Why? Thanks! --Rhea
Tom JudNeither, I would go with FireMon. They are the market leader. when it comes to Traffic Flow Analysis, Scalability, architecture and vision, they are the clear leader.
reviewer547968It very depends what you expect from such system. Tufin and AlgoSec have another approach to same things. The better way to take decision is to make an PoC with both systems. You can than discover if both of them covers all configuration features of Firewall, L3 devices, Load Balancers, Cloud Services, Proxy etc, which you are using in your Network Infrastructure. There is no simple answer for such question.
