Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It saves time by allowing administrators to test network traffic and pinpoint which rules are being triggered for a particular traffic flow.""We have not seen many faults reported from our customers.""The features that are most valuable are the interactive topology map and the traffic simulation queries.""It assists in provisioning the application rapidly, which increases the organization's revenue.""We are currently in a rule base performance improvement process and AlgoSec is an invaluable tool to accomplish this.""One of the quick wins is to view our device status easily, with out-of-the-box dashboards and charts.""AlgoSec has reduced the need for additional manpower and we can now use the time to tackle other security-related issues.""The most valuable features are the FW report, traffic simulation, and the FireFlow system to help manage requests."

"Change Manager is most important because of the impact on each other of a network change or a firewall change. We want to understand this and to know, beforehand, what the impact of a change will be. We are a large network so that is a very important tool.""The solution's simplicity of use is its most valuable feature.""The port division management was the solution's most valuable aspect for our organization.""The most valuable features are Firewall Assurance and Vulnerability Control.""The most valuable feature is firewall management.""The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it gathers all the information from firewalls and then generates a report for me. I can then do some analytics and mediation based on what Skybox Security Suite provided.""The solution offers very nice dashboards and they've recently added a very good Java-based web interface."

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 solution needs to add more automation and orchestration capabilities. Those features would make the solution much stronger.""The solution was quite technical. It would be easier to manage if the solution was more specific about aspects of the solution and provided more advisory around how to use it effectively. It would help users a lot if they were more clear about everything.""The most recent update was not tested with all of the vendors before it was released, so some of the features are misbehaving.""The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich.""They can improve the user interface. They can also improve the web version. They have a so-called Java client in their roadmap, but I'm not sure when it will come.""The support could be improved."

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."

More AlgoSec Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing is on the higher side. In terms of licensing, you should buy the complete suite rather than buying only the Change Manager. I think Change Manager with Vulnerability Control is something that would be interesting to look at.""The price is not expensive.""Currently, the licensing costs me about $300 USD for the year. This is a huge amount for my environment."
