Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The complete and end-to-end visibility and analysis it provides of the policy rule base is invaluable and saves countless time and effort.""Optimizing the operation making it possible to focus on other improvements.""Rather than logging in on separate firewalls, AlgoSec enables you to make changes on all firewalls from one pane of glass.""AlgoSec Firewall Analyser improves the firewall rules dramatically by identifying rules and objects that are not needed and consolidates rules and rule re-ordering.""Firewall Analyzer is valuable because it makes searching our existing policies so simple.""In my opinion, the most valuable features are the network map, unused rules reports (IPT), and active change.""This is something that increases business efficiency and helps avoid bottlenecks in our NOC team.""It helps us to streamline our firewall rules, identify risks, and provide better visibility. This product has significantly saved the time and human efforts in creating and deploying firewall rules. It is now easier for our cybersecurity team to analyze firewalls rules and ACLs, using them in a more efficient manner."

"Overall the solution does a good job."

More ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer Pros »

"The license rekeying needed for when you need to change a firewall usually takes a bit of time.""One important thing they should improve is their support level. We have a lot of trouble with the basic enterprise support level. They are very slow to respond and solve problems.""The blacklisting and whitelisting of IP addresses should be improved. There are many false positives.""The reports are lacking information when they come out. They will not pull the URL or application information from Cisco FTDs. I know this works for Palo Alto Firewalls, which we currently do not have. If they could improve the integration with Cisco FTDs as a whole, that would be immensely helpful.""The risky rules reporting should have more information available in the risky rules report - especially when you export the data into a .CSV format. .CSV format being a text-based visualization, some information and formatting cause the reports to lose meaning and only become just another character in the file since it cannot port over some properties (like severity represented by colors).""The Firewall Analyzer module can be improved to implement a vulnerability management solution, or they can link Firewall Analyzer with a vulnerability management solution in order to get a better overview of what's going on in our network in terms of vulnerabilities.""The GUI has not been upgraded for a long time and could use updating.""Algosec should also be exploring the integration with the open source firewalls as well."

"The solution lacks a lot of features that other products have in the marketplace."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The initial cost was high for us.""It seems we have recovered our money on this appliance, so it is money well spent.""The pricing for this solution seems to be reasonable for the functionality.""Licensing is very easy to set up. The pricing is relative to how you want to expand and harden your network security.""I would suggest that you start with a VM, get a PoC with a temp license, and try it out. You will love it.""The pricing for this solution is not cheap, but we get good value for what we pay.""The cost of the tool can be recovered with AlgoSec automations.""I propose to purchase licenses for all of the networking devices in the network, because if not all of the devices are integrated then the query of particular access cannot be discovered entirely."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The most valuable feature is the automation that can be accomplished by using scripts. If we didn't have AlgoSec, I would have to do everything manually.
Top Answer: Licensing AlgoSec is easy. To license AlgoSec, you must get a MAC address on the AlgoSec server, then you can deploy the AlgoSec server in your environment. And if you get a MAC address, you must… more »
Top Answer: When we send multiple requests across at once, sometimes it causes errors and FireFlow gets stuck. In cases like this, we have to go back in and fix it.
