AlgoSec Review

Unused rule optimization and rule tracking help keep our team up to date


What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is for firewall rule optimization and rule tracking for changes in 80 Palo Alto firewalls. There are 30 clustered and 20 standalone in the environment. Formerly, it was Check Point with almost the same quantity.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has helped the team to be updated with changes globally.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the unused rule optimization, where it clears the policy when appropriate.

What needs improvement?

The pricing structure is not good because there is no difference between a Data Center firewall for a small branch. The pricing for smaller installations should be lowered because sometimes there is just no ROI to add AlgoSec to the small branch offices with only 10 rules.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using AlgoSec for seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution looks very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Our impression of the scalability is great.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have no experience with technical support.

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

Other than Check Point, we did not use another solution prior to AlgoSec.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We had assistance from Bynet. They are very good professionals.

What was our ROI?

There is not so much ROI for us. We are using it basically for SOX purposes but find it useful on the way.

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

Pricing is great if you have a small number of large firewalls, otherwise, it does not bring ROI.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before choosing this solution.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
