AlgoSec Review

The change management feature is great for environments with multiple firewall engineers


What is our primary use case?

We used AlgoSec during a migration between firewall vendors. We needed a tool that could help evaluate the effectiveness of our existing rule base and inventory network objects.

How has it helped my organization?

Running AlgoSec helped us clean up years worth of obsolete rules and objects. This left us with a clean and up-to-date policy on our new firewalls.

What is most valuable?

  • Policy risk mitigation identifies and helps tighten risky rules rendering the policy more secure. 
  • The change management feature is great for environments with multiple firewall engineers.

What needs improvement?

The only thing I had slight issues with is the web UI which is a bit tricky to navigate. It can be difficult to find what you're looking for without having to click around for a bit, but once you get to know where things are, it's not bad.

For how long have I used the solution?

Trial/evaluations only.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This is the first solution of this kind I have used.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Setup is a breeze.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did not evaluate any other solutions.

What other advice do I have?

No.
