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

Pros
We are moving towards an automated environment so the ability to work with Ansible, ServiceNow, and Palo Alto gives us the ability to automate our firewall policy creation. And it does so in a manner where we do not have to worry about a policy being created that may put our organization at risk.The Firewall Analyzer helps us achieve our various IT compliance requirements, like ISO-27001.It detects if the requested network and ports are getting blocked by the network or firewalls by a simple query, which helps to identify the network blocking firewalls in the topology.The most valuable feature is that the tool is capable of simplifying firewall management and configuration in an automated fashion.This Appliance gives you the full Network MAP, which is obtainable from the Routing table.With the solution, we can uncover bottlenecks, streamline, and clean up our firewall rules.It assists us in network security reviews and audits.Breaking down a rule to specify used objects within groups and protocols has proven invaluable for us because we are able to narrow exposure to potential threats, and more generally, areas in which we are exposed.

The filtering of lots of criteria is very valuable.The Automatic Policy Generator saves time because we are able to identify the required policy when a client doesn't know what he needs.The automated reporting on a regular basis is helping us to be compliant with legal requirements.Tufin assists us in maintaining a robust view of our internal network topology.This solution has helped us to meet our compliance mandates. We implemented the Unified Security Policy (USP). This helped enforce what compliance requirements that we had. We have mitigated and remediated issues that have been brought forth due to that USP showing us issues.It's hard to pick the most valuable feature. All of them are valuable, they're all critical for us... ChangeTrack obviously has a lot of very good features, like the risk analysis, the USP, and the Policy Browser.The Topology Map, which feeds into our SecureChange - the latter being an automation platform - there's a lot of synergy between the two.In our current environment, the most valuable feature from Tufin is their Network Map.

Cons
The process to replace a decommissioned device with a new device is not straightforward.Support for Layer 7 policies, including User-ID and threat profiles with Palo Alto firewalls, has been a pain point from us. We would like to include the additional info specifically because we believe it changes the riskiness of the rule if it is only set for a specific user or a group of users.There is huge scope for improvement in the level of support, especially around the issue of resolution time. That is the only negative point I find in the solution.The FireFlow template does not allow the user to perform external actions like sending an email or triggering a specific action.In a complex landscape, with several nodes/equipment, it can be somewhat more difficult to properly visualize the network map.It seems that AlgoSec created a VSYS (Virtual system) for each virtual router name, even though our firewall has only a single VSYS.We would like to have a kind of "Time Capsule" to be able to restore to a certain state from a backup.Priority should be to improve the user interface for the risk and compliance part, making it more responsive and user-friendly.

I would like to see more configuration options on next-generation firewalls, defining possible standards for devices.I would like to see better report integration in this solution.I would like to see the setup of the Unified Security Policy simplified.The product should integrate with the UTM features.The metrics need improvement. They need more consistency or understanding of automation, along lines of customization of automation.Tufin has come a long way when it comes to visibility. What we would like to see is a little bit more on the discovery level, network discovery, which Tufin does not have today.More API integration with third-party platforms is something that we would definitely like to see in upcoming releases.The biggest area where I see a need for improvement is some of the documentation and training stuff. It does a really good job of hitting the big concepts, but it needs like another layer deeper of actually getting into some of the details of how to do some of the things. Conceptually, I understand how the product works, but now how do I start building stuff and integrating it into my environment.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.It seems we have recovered our money on this appliance, so it is money well spent.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.The licensing is very easy to set up, with flexible licensing methods such as subscription and perpetual.

I suggest talking with Tufin about the flexibility of the pricing structure.I suggest talking with Tufin about the flexibility of the pricing structure.The licensing costs are a significant amount of money.I'm saving 20 man-hours a week, so I am seeing some ROI.The cost is pretty high. It's close to seven figures.For us it's around $40,000 or so.Licensing is on a customer by customer basis.The seller of Tufin, when I wanted the solution, was very flexible because the cost on the lease was very high in Latin America. So, he was able to reduce the cost.

Tufin has the below limitations
Tufin had problems with VRFs and didn't understand a negated address object in a Fortinet firewall.

When choosing Firewall Management Software consider this:
The best thing to do upfront is to work out what's taking up time today:
· Evaluating and validating requests (garbage in = garbage out)
· Translating validated requirements into technical implementation plans (traversing multiple firewalls, NAT, router ACLs, etc)
· Dealing with a broad range of products and/or a requirement to do different things in different ways
· Policy risk evaluation (who decides what is/isn't allowed, how and why)
· Human sign-off / change control
· Executing an understood change plan
· Validating an understood change plan.
