AlgoSec Review

Integrates well with other solutions to enhance efficiency and transparency


What is our primary use case?

AlgoSec helps us by giving an overview of our Layer 3 network devices. With the solution, we can uncover bottlenecks, streamline, and clean up our firewall rules.

How has it helped my organization?

AlgoSec saves our IT department a lot of time and also creates transparency. A large number of reports can be generated quickly. The reports are based on all known catalogs and are important for management and department heads. The products interlock and share relevant information with each other.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the interaction between AlgoSec's different solutions. From Firewall Analyzer to FireFlow to BusinessFlow, the solutions add value for us and our customers. The basis with the Firewall Analyzer and the corresponding Network Map is one of the core features for transparency.

The ticket system informs all of the people involved with respect to the next steps.

The reporting and documentation components help us to comply with the ISO catalog.

What needs improvement?

It is always possible to improve the product.

We would like to have a kind of "Time Capsule" to be able to restore to a certain state from a backup.

We would like to have a BSI Compliance Report for Germany.

Interfaces are worked on continuously, and small firewall manufacturers such as Sophos should still be included as standard.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than eight months.

What other advice do I have?

All manufacturers on the market are constantly improving. The beautiful and simple thing about AlgoSec is the short distances and that you are heard. If you want a feature implemented, or a report for a certain country adapted or created, then they will take your request seriously right up to the C-Level. The implementation takes place promptly and is customer-friendly.

**Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: As a consulting and integration partner, we use AlgoSec products ourselves, but are also responsible for solution sales in the DACH market.
