We felt like we were able to do a lot of firewall cleanup without having a full-time admin manually looking at logs.
It has allowed us to let application developers see our rule base and help them know if they need to request a rule or not during development.
Finding unused objects within rules has helped a lot.

It permits us to save a lot of time and make some firewall policy clean up. Then, when we add firewall change requests to management through this tool, it decreases the time for design and implementation significantly.
The Firewall Analyser feature is the most important and valuable part of this tool. This provides quick and simple visibility on the firewall's risk assessment.

AlgoSec contributes more in the security space for our company, especially in automatically ​finding the high risk and medium risk rules instead of manually reviewing over a few thousand rules.
ABF is a wonderful module where you can keep the footprint for your firewall rules up-to-date, like CMDB.
The Compliance module is one of the best features which can help anyone to perform security review with predefined security matrix configurations. The compliance module can save a lot of time for security reviews and provide full visibility of the risk required in firewall change requests.

I like the auto-mapping features and configuration overview. We use this for many things, but primarily for quick reactions to security events, audit, project management, and quick operational efficiencies.
It improves audibility and security by having instant access to firewall configurations.
It has the ability to create architectures improving performance and reducing costs.

It saves time by allowing administrators to test network traffic and pinpoint which rules are being triggered for a particular traffic flow.

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

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.

Default standard support at Level 1 is to answer by upgrading to the latest released version, if you are not using it yet.
Improve the dashboarding capability for FireFlow which is currently very limited in terms of presentation and customisation.

ABF is not very mature compare to AFA and AFF, but the module and concepts are quite good. I would suggest more concentration on ABF, especially on object and application permissions.

​Needs better technical support and quicker response times.​
Having the ability to patch an issue as oppose to upgrading the entire suite.
