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?

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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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.

What is most valuable?

The solution's simplicity of use is its most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs more detailed reporting. In Skybox the reporting is good, but it could be improved. The solution needs to add more automation and orchestration capabilities. Those features would make the solution much stronger.

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. We're not a partner or reseller of the solution. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. I'd recommend those considering the solution to also look at Tufin and AlgoSec. I'd advise anyone considering any of these three options to compare them together and request a detailed… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other solutions before choosing this one. In fact, I'd recommend other companies to also take a look at Tufin and AlgoSec. Evaluating each of these will help organizations pick the best solution for their needs.
