I like the fact that Tufin was able to integrate with our firewalls, which include Palo Alto and FortiGate.The change workflow process is flexible and customizable... If we have a firewall completed and we want to redo it, if we need to re-engineer a particular firewall and open a different destination, we can do that by creating a break-fix... That is one of its useful tools.The most valuable features are the Security Risks and Best Practices reporting/Rule base cleanup.SecureChange is the most interesting part. It all comes down to having the user request firewall access and SecureChange, based on workflows, takes care of it, sending two or three emails to the business approvers. With one click, you can automate a firewall rule.The change workflow process is flexible and customizable. I was really impressed with it. It's pretty easy. You can add automatic validation steps. Depending on the security matrix, you can pre-allow whatever flow you want.The most valuable function is the SecureChange where it is able to automate everything from the validation of the rules to the pushing of the rules.The policy overview is valuable.Our customer has the ability to centrally monitor and view all changes that have been made in the network, and they are able to revert any problems that they encounter, if somebody has made a problematic change.

Cons
We had some challenges with the initial setup, but it was more on a learning curve basis.My pain point is the automation process is not well-documented. There are some things that they could improve on there.

Our project is running on Riverbed for SDN. I don't know if Tufin can integrate with Riverbed. Other than that, I have no issues with this product.When it comes to web services, in my experience, Tomcat has always gone down; after a certain amount of load it breaks down and we have to get things restored again.I feel that the user interface is a bit dated.The interface is like a 1990s kind of thing. It's a little ugly. There are many things that you cannot tweak, little things like the column width and how you display the information. You end up exporting everything to an Excel file and doing your work there.The documentation site is horrible as well. It has a tree structure, and you really get lost quite easily.There is room for improvement in the speed of Tufin. It is using so many of my VM resources and yet it is still a bit slow... Even though we are allocating 130 gigs of RAM, we still have to wait for a few minutes for a single report to be generated. Otherwise it would be a perfect tool.The key area for improvement is the integration to F5. One of the things that we encountered with another customer is that there were some limitations when we tried to migrate policies from F5 into Tufin.I would rate their reports as a four out of ten. I don't like the way that they are shown. It is too hard to export and send them to our clients.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.

There is no issue with the pricing because we used a VM. That kept the cost low, as compared to an appliance.It's not that expensive, except for Security Groups. For us, just the Security Groups were about half of the total price. The total was about €500,000 a year, of which €200,000 was for Security Groups.Pricing is quite high. We did compare it with AlgoSec but the pricing is not much different between the two.Pricing played a big part here... The customer had evaluated other products but, due to price as well as support, they chose Tufin.If you don't buy their premium support, their technical support is not great and you can only call during daytime hours. So, we ended up purchasing their premium support.We are seeing ROI in terms of having SecureApp.We did look at less expensive solutions than Tufin, but being a corporation, this solution made sense.Our engineers are spending less time on manual processes: 20 to 30 hour plus.
