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

Pros
It gives us the ability to go to one place to look for potential firewall rules that are inappropriate, or which don't meet compliance. Instead of manually searching hundreds of firewalls for a policy, we can go to this one location and find the rules which are now out of compliance.It is the single place where we go to review all of our firewall changes. The solution makes it easier for us to track all the changes made. It is a central place where we can look at all the firewall rules, because we have three different firewall vendors. It save us time and creates efficiencies by looking at the general picture.The most valuable feature is the reporting capability because everything that we do is a result of our being able to query a report, based on our environment and our PCI compliance efforts.The Security Manager part of FireMon... gives me an eye on everything that's out there, everything that I cannot see. Because I'm not a network admin, I cannot go to a firewall itself, but at least I have FireMon so that I can go in and view everything that I want to view. And I can eliminate whatever I see that is wrong,It provides us with a single pane of glass for our on-prem environment, to see configuration. We have not implemented into the cloud yet. We can search for an object group and see where it lives on any firewall in the enterprise or find security rules, no matter what firewall they're on.The most valuable features are Policy Optimizer and Firewall Manager for different brands of firewall.Vendor agnostic when it comes to integrating with other product.Policy test, access path analysis, and change reports.

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 AWS integration is still not mature for us to use. It is just not ready for our use case for AWS connectivity. Therefore, it does not provide us with a single pane of glass for our cloud environments, because we can't manage our cloud environment with the tool.The stability has been fairly decent, but there have been a few issues. My coworker has had some issues in the past where he has had to work with support.The current health and monitoring of the devices is atrocious... Imagine you have a list of 200 devices, and you can grade each of those devices as either green, yellow, or red. However, there might be three different reasons for you to go to red, or eight different reasons to go to yellow, and all of those things could be combined... Out of all those categories, I only find one or two of them that are, perhaps, pertinent.We're working on implementing FireMon with our ticketing system service now. Having that would be an improvement.Some of the core functionality in our environment doesn't seem to work. We will get buggy code releases. They need to work on their Q&A of every code release.We are looking for more integration with SIEM and other tools.A phone app would be nice. This is the reason why it is not perfect yet.Policy Planner requirements section is good, but could use some improvement to allow flexibility to enter different types of requests (modifying an existing policy, object or service group, for example) in a structured task format that can be auto-verified.

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
We don't license all of the devices in our network, so it does not provide us with a comprehensive visibility of all devices in a hybrid network at this time.We pay for it yearly.Regarding additional costs, if you want things like Policy Optimizer, extra features, that's extra.The pricing is very good, very straightforward. It also came in cheaper than AlgoSec and Tufin.Relative to what it offers, the price is fair.Pricing model seems fair.

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.Our licensing costs are three million total and then we pay for maintenance, which is an additional cost for three years.
