What is most valuable?

For us, it's more important for our firewalls, to maintain the configuration compliance, to look at duplication of rules; clean up functionalities on the firewall and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It's given us more visibility in terms of what are the kinds of configurations that are on these devices, and how many of these are stale rules. So it's helped greatly in… more»

What needs improvement?

The primary room for improvement would be to enable a web interface, which is not something which is there in the product. This is supposed to have come a year, a year and… more»

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

I think for the cost, what we got definitely is worth it. We're looking to expand it come next financial year, that will start from April of 2018. We'll need to look at… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were not using any other solution, not something similar to Skybox at least. Our principle company was using a competitor product from Tufin. Their use case was fairly… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you choose Skybox, then I would say spend a lot of time making sure that your network and your IT segment and all your devices and scope are properly documented. Make… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did a proof of concept with Skybox and Tufin, both. In terms of setup times, in terms of the interface in itself, Tufin was much better. But Skybox had better features… 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»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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?

I think finding the firewall's rules with the highest risk is valuable. In the old days, we had to run reports and look through rule bases trying to find risky rules and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

By letting developers access AlgoSec, we cut down the questions and time we had to spend explaining what ports are open and where. They can now see in one panel. Since… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more object-based reports on groups and object usage. When cleaning up old rules, it is easy to disable the rule and then delete after a while. Trying… more»

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

I would start with only a few firewalls and then grow. You can get your feet wet and add more firewalls in next year's budget.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have used Tufin which does a good job looking at groups and objects but AlgoSec adds more of a risk approach to it.

What other advice do I have?

The solution is pretty solid and intuitive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Tufin.
