We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The interface is intuitive and it is easy for the users."
"The most valuable feature is the centrally managed rule. I also like the central orchestration."
"Once this solution is set up, we hardly have to touch it."
"The most valuable feature is alerting, which lets me know when someone has made a change."
"There are a lot of benefits to using the reporting. It gives us duplicate objects, duplicate services, shadow firewall rules, and the firewall rules not needed for a given number of days or months."
"It allows administrators to visualize the traffic flow, and troubleshoot when necessary."
"You can easily scale the solution if you need to."
"The solution is quite scalable."
"The technical support is pretty good."
"It provides very good reports. It can easily integrate with multiple firewalls, such as Cisco, Juniper, Palo Alto, and Checkpoint. We can push a policy from Tufin to a firewall, which is a very good feature. We can monitor all access rules and the operating system of a firewall."
"The reporting on offer is very good. Tufin makes nice reports."
"The system should be more customizable."
"Enabling and configuring the logging is not that straightforward."
"This solution is suitable for a small-scale enterprise and may not scale up to a very high volume of traffic or a large number of servers."
"I would like to see visibility into the FW features like IPS/Content Filter policies, the same way it does for FW rules/policies."
"There are pros and cons to the workflow. You cannot customize it fully and there are some limitations. You cannot create a pure object, a firewall, IP, or service (single layer) object. You can only create a firewall object group. That is one of the challenges."
"They need to offer more support to vendors, such as Cisco, Checkpoint, Fortinet, and Forcepoint."
"The initial setup can be tough."
"The older version that we have doesn't support some newer firewall vendors."
"The pricing of the solution is rather expensive."
"Currently, we are able to monitor access rules and the operating system of a firewall. It would be great if we can also monitor the configuration of the firewall through Tufin."
"The pricing could be a bit more competitive."
"The AWS Firewall Manager is a little on the costly side."
"The licensing is on a pay-as-you-go basis and we are billed monthly."
"I believe our cost is more than $100,000 per year."
"It's quite an expensive solution."
"Price could always be better, but there are always consequences."
"The price is on the cheaper side."
"Its price is reasonable, but it could be lower. It has been cost-effective for us. We have a contract for three years."
"Because we're quite a large company, the price wasn't too much of a factor for us."
