AlgoSec Review

I have found the firewall optimisation feature to be very valuable

What is our primary use case?

I use AlgoSec for my firewall rule optimisation, compliance baseline auditing, firewall change reviews, etc.

How has it helped my organization?

AlgoSec has helped tighten the rules on my firewalls, reduce the risks or exposure, and also meet regulatory compliance.

What is most valuable?

I have found the firewall optimisation feature to be very valuable because most developers don't know the ports or services their applications are running. After running the rules on any services for a short while, AlgoSec helps get the right service ports and IP addresses.

What needs improvement?

The product or service could be improved by orchestration or automation that will help in changing the rule sets on the firewalls based on the detected used services/ports and IP addresses. 

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

AlgoSec has been very stable compared with its pairs.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution's scalability is impressive.

How are customer service and technical support?

Service/technical support are good at their job and responsive.

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

No, I didn't.

How was the initial setup?

It is quite easy to deploy and manage.

What about the implementation team?

Implemented through a vendor and their level of expertise is high.

What was our ROI?

Worth every penny, and the value realisation is great.

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

AlgoSec is worth every penny for the value or return of investment. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No evaluations. AlgoSec was recommended, and we got a trial version for a period.

What other advice do I have?
