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.The most valuable feature is alerting, which lets me know when someone has made a change.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 product could use some method of allowing for more customization and open integration with other controls.The solution should improve the speed at which they make changes on the system. Historically, they've been a bit slow in that respect. They should apply changes to the box quicker and more often.I would like more dashboard management.The general customer feedback is when saving the configuration, it takes a long time. That needs to be fixed. The troubleshooting, the debugging part is also a little bit of a pain. It's not user-friendly on the interface to do our debugging when comparing it with other firewalls, like Forcepoint.There is room for improvement in the integration within endpoint detection. They need to do some integration between endpoints and the firewalls.Customer support can improve.The dual WAN functionality is missing in this solution.Panorama needs to work on its configuration issues.

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.I would like to see visibility into the FW features like IPS/Content Filter policies, the same way it does for FW rules/policies.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We pay approximately $3,000 a year in order to use the product.You only pay for the license and there are no additional costs.Initially, Palo Alto looks expensive, but if you dig deeper then you will find that it is very comparable, or even cheaper than other solutions.It has freed up staff time, which is where we are seeing ROI.With the URL filtering, we probably went down from around four hours in response time to about five minutes.The licensing is not cheap. There are always hidden costs. You have support costs, or maybe you need to buy more optics on how the solution fits into the rest of your environment. It is possible some of the rest of your environment will need to change too.

I believe our cost is more than $100,000 per year.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.
