More RedSeal Pros »

Cons
"I would like the reporting to be more customizable, as per user and auditing needs.""There is room for improvement in the rollback process.""The MAP has a persistent issue with a firewall that is using a double BVI (Bridge virtual interface).""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.""The product is severely lacking in vendor support.""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.""We would like to see them utilize the cloud to help with performance improvement, and with various processes needed on a daily basis.""We have a complaint about the compliance check, in that sometimes we want to keep rules rather than merge them."

More AlgoSec Cons »

"The dashboard should be improved to make correlating data easier to do.""One of the areas of concern is the GUI. It is important to our customers that the GUI looks beautiful. It's a Java Client, so you have a Java dependency."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is flexible with a low cost setup.""The licensing is very easy to set up, with flexible licensing methods such as subscription and perpetual.""My advice is that you must do a POC and show value.""The price is adapted to the product's utilization for each company.""The price is high but the support is extremely poor, so keep that in mind before choosing this product.""AlgoSec is not much more expensive compared to other products available in the market.""The pricing of AlgoSec is fair.""It seems we have recovered our money on this appliance, so it is money well spent."
