Pros
This Appliance gives you the full Network MAP, which is obtainable from the Routing table.We are in the process of implementing FireFlow in our daily operation, which will make our lives even easier. The idea is to search the Firewall Analyzer for the equipment between the source and destination, and then automatically jump off to FireFlow and open a ticket. This will then automatically implement what is needed without the need to go into the Firewall itself. This will save us a lot of time and will help us to onboard junior engineers very quickly, getting them up to speed on our network and daily operation in record time.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.The automation of the firewall rule deployment, working together with our ticketing system, is the most valuable feature of this solution. The needs as required by a user request are automatically validated and configured in the specified firewalls without any human action.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.The most valuable feature is the reporting, including the policy report and regulatory compliance reports.The most valuable feature is traffic simulation because, with this function, it has become more practical to know if something is released or blocked in my environment.FireFlow is the most valuable feature because we changed the way to set up rules on the firewalls.

Cons
It seems that AlgoSec created a VSYS (Virtual system) for each virtual router name, even though our firewall has only a single VSYS.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.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.The interface needs to be more user-friendly for low-profile users so that we can give some kind of access to specific people around the company for self-configuration of specific rules.It would be easier if the network maps could be updated using the GUI portal instead of from the OS.Cisco Firepower device support is limited in our AlgoSec system and I think AlgoSec can improve in that area.I believe Active Change needs to be improved because not all products are supported, and some functions cannot be implemented by Active Change either.I would like to have AlgoSec update the topology maps from the GUI portal, rather than having to go into the OS.

It would be awesome if the product could monitor services for applications.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It seems we have recovered our money on this appliance, so it is money well spent.The pricing of AlgoSec is fair.The pricing for this solution seems to be reasonable for the functionality.AlgoSec is not much more expensive compared to other products available in the market.The price is high but the support is extremely poor, so keep that in mind before choosing this product.The price is adapted to the product's utilization for each company.My advice is that you must do a POC and show value.The pricing for this solution is not cheap, but we get good value for what we pay.
