What do you think of AlgoSec?

Hi all, As many users do , we are using algosec for policy optimization and violation detection, too. There are some important and really nice to use features that I want to mention about Algosec. Firstly, one of the most useful feature is instantaneous afa report, that you do not have to wait some time to analyze the firewall traffic. When working with some other vendors, someone has to wait at least one week or even more for an accurate analyze and optimization recommendations. You do not have to wait for it when using Algosec. Secondly, web user interface is really user-friendly and easy to use. I can find all the items I look for easily. Soon, we will also use network simulator feature. That will be useful to see the end-to-end traffic, and will increase the visibility in a…
