AlgoSec Review

Provides a good optimization function that matches our needs related to other vendors

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case was the firewall policy cleaning and optimisation, plus compliance control and some change auditing.

How has it helped my organization?

AlgoSec provides a good optimization function that matches our needs related to other vendors. It allows us to clean useless rules and objects.

What is most valuable?

We are only using Firewall Analyzer, which is really good compared to other vendors. The other features (FireFlow and BusinessFlow) still aren't mature, and their licensing is expensive.

What needs improvement?

The production needs to be smarter and maybe have some AI capabilities to provide better firewall optimization and workflow integration.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is more stable than in the past.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The report takes time, and the virtual appliance is a resource consumer.

How are customer service and technical support?

The documentation is clear. The support is available but restricted to some requests that need advance service (not free).

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

Yes, AlgoSec provides a better solution for the firewall rule optimization that matches our production need.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was simple, and only firewall integration could take time due to some complex interaction.

What about the implementation team?

The implementation was in-house; the product is still simple to manage.

What was our ROI?

Reduced the firewall load due to a good rule table and then extended the firewall life cycle.

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

Compare with other products to see which one matches the best their needs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Tufin, Skybox.

What other advice do I have?
