It now takes less than half of the time it took before we had this tool to deploy the flows requested by the business.

With this feature, you can directly permit the end-user to request what he/she needs, and if the security policy is respected it can directly be approved and implemented.

We are moving towards an automated environment so the ability to work with Ansible, ServiceNow, and Palo Alto gives us the ability to automate our firewall policy creation. And it does so in a manner where we do not have to worry about a policy being created that may put our organization at risk.

There are some important and really nice features that I want to mention about AlgoSec. The most useful feature is instantaneous AFA reports, that you do not have to wait (at least one week or even more for a more accurate one) to get optimization recommendations about policy as many other vendors.

We are currently in a rule base performance improvement process and AlgoSec is an invaluable tool to accomplish this.

I think finding the firewall's rules with the highest risk is valuable.

One of the quick wins is to view our device status easily, with out-of-the-box dashboards and charts.

We would like to see more features in the GUI so that we don't have to work with the API as extensively.

It would be easier if the network maps could be updated using the GUI portal instead of from the OS.

It seems that AlgoSec created a VSYS (Virtual system) for each virtual router name, even though our firewall has only a single VSYS.

This product could be improved in several ways including more device support, an automated rollback process and options in active push, software-defined WAN integration and support, and application-aware policy identification and optimization.

Support for Layer 7 policies, including User-ID and threat profiles with Palo Alto firewalls, has been a pain point from us. We would like to include the additional info specifically because we believe it changes the riskiness of the rule if it is only set for a specific user or a group of users.

To be more specific, when we tried to add some devices on AlgoSec it seemed to be done but when you checked the monitor section, some device was always red. Finally, we could handle this part by installing a new software fix but AlgoSec support was weak when we tried to handle this process.

Priority should be to improve the user interface for the risk and compliance part, making it more responsive and user-friendly.

I would like to see more object-based reports on groups and object usage.

A more granular approach and the possibility to separate data and show relevant data to specific key roles or key users would be a great achievement in future releases.
