What is most valuable?

The rule provisioning is the most valuable feature. We had a ticketing system, like Remedy, which had a homegrown product. It would take your source destination port and do a bit of analysis, then… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It is definitely a time saver. We can process more rules on a daily basis. It allows the customers to request their own rules. Sometimes, they need a little help, but they can submit it. As long as it… more»

What needs improvement?

We like what we have seen out of SecureTrack 2.0 with its improved search capabilities, where you can do greater than, less than, not equal, etc. Right now, if you're in there and you want to do a… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

The previous solution was written in-house. We had a product called Skybox and whoever wrote the app would query Skybox for compliance, etc. Then, it would generate a spreadsheet, and we had to work… more»

What other advice do I have?

Give Tufin a good look. The Tufin team is always trying to stay on top of it. When Check Point came out with a R80.10, it wasn't very long before Tufin could generate rules or provision to R80.10… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did PoCs. We looked at FireMon, AlgoSec, etc. Tufin came out on top, so we started implementing it, as it was the product that we chose. With AlgoSec, you had to pay them for all of your workflows… more»

What is most valuable?

The policy overview is the most valuable feature for each of the firewalls that we manage right now, as it reduces the complexity of the firewall rule set.

How has it helped my organization?

The firewall administrators have gained time back by using this tool, simplifying the firewall rule set. The solution helps to clean up rules which have not been reviewed… more»

What needs improvement?

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… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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. I'm not… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't use a previous solution.

What other advice do I have?

Each deployment scenario will be unique. A robust proof of concept is key to make sure it will meet all of your intended use cases. The solution is managing 25 percent of… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

During our proof of concept phase, we also evaluated Tufin, AlgoSec, and Skybox. We chose FireMon based on a few different things, but the main one was that they were a… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that the tool is capable of simplifying firewall management and configuration in an automated fashion. Additionally, the fact that it is also possible to implement a FW management workflow clearly supports the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

AlgoSec is a powerful firewall management tool. I have supported a client implementing the firewall analyzer in an environment with several firewall vendors and poor management. The implementation went smoothly, with good support from the… more»

What needs improvement?

The network mapping interface could be improved in the next version. In a complex landscape, with several nodes/equipment, it can be somewhat more difficult to properly visualize the network map. It requires several zoom-in and zoom-out… more»

What other advice do I have?

Do not underestimate the configuration effort, especially on a more complex landscape.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated other options before choosing this solution including Skybox and Palo Alto Panorama.
