AlgoSec Review

Reduces costs and errors for compliance and audit preparation

What is our primary use case?

AlgoSec is a global tool that has been purchased to get a centralized view of our infrastructure. This enables us to review our security posture and implement a compliance strategy.

AlgoSec is also used for in-depth firewall analysis and intelligent policy tuning and optimization. It helps in regulatory compliance metrics and overall firewall security optimization. It is currently used by the network security, audit, and internal control departments of organizations, giving overall insight/visibility and enhancing improved security across the enterprise.

It has been really helpful in automating changes. This helps us to reduce operational work drastically. The product has centralized visibility, unified management, and reporting across an entire hybrid environment. It can be deployed on-premises, in a private cloud, public cloud, and in SDN platforms. It automatically discovers applications and their connectivity flows, then associates connectivity with their underlying firewall rules.

AlgoSec's solutions are incredibly powerful, providing us with intelligent process improvement that has directly translated into the highest level of security and compliance for our internal network.
