Tufin Other Solutions Considered

Arturo Morante
Network Architect at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees
We could only test AlgoSec for a little while. Our group is part of a larger group of products. When we were doing our PoC for AlgoSec, we were told to stop. The decision was made to move to Tufin because it has group-wise technology, chosen for the acclimation of firewall policies. AlgoSec is much prettier, it's much simpler, and has a cleaner interface. Functionality-wise, it's pretty similar, from what I read in the AlgoSec documentation. Tufin has a few extra features, but AlgoSec is much cleaner, it's prettier. Going with Tufin was not a technical decision, it was "politics." The largest group uses Tufin, so other group members have to use Tufin as well. It's mandatory. View full review »

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. So, if you wanted the workflows, you had to pay them. I don't know how quick that would be as a turnaround, because we would have had to do the whole, "Here's what I want." We didn't like that at all. Tufin has been a good investment. Unfortunately. We've got some people in our organization who are in love with Skybox and think Skybox can do no wrong. They are trying very hard to replace Tufin with Skybox, even though Skybox hasn't even done any provisioning. I think they're just misguided. It's a product that they love, and maybe it is good at compliance, but as far as provisioning, I haven't seen it. View full review »

The company a good comparison of the different tools. I don't know if they were working with Booz Allen at the time, but Booz Allen seems to feel pretty strongly about the quality of Tufin and their user experience. It does seem like Tufin has reputation regarding its user interface that it is more friendly than other competitors. I am aware of two other competitors who were possibly considered.

We did not consider anyone else, because we already had an unused, unimplemented Tufin license. We eventually thought to start consolidating everything into one place. We decided on Tufin because: * It was an existing tool. * It served our purposes. It provided us the essential components for managing a varied environment of different types of firewalls. * We felt that there was enough potential in the organization to grow with us and provide capabilities, like cloud, VM environments, etc., under the same umbrella.

I wasn't part of the bake-off. I think the company went in the right direction, and I am glad that they didn't even look at FireMon. While our UK side has Skybox, which I have never even seen, the orchestration piece was really the key to solidifying us on the Tufin solution. I was talking to somebody earlier today who said that Skybox has a more powerful Network Map than what Tufin has, but I haven't even seen Skybox, View full review »

The decision was made before I joined the organization. I don't know if they looked at competitors or not. Currently, we are looking at AlgoSec, if it can replace Tufin or compete with Tufin in terms of features. The main differences between the two are only in the pricing and the look and feel. They both do the same thing. Both will be able to achieve our organization's targets. But in terms of look and feel, our engineers are already used to what we have. And I do prefer Tufin.

We looked at three solutions at the time, then chose Tufin. We felt that Tufin was one of the more customizable solutions and had the best price. They came in cheaper than everyone else, and at our company, that means a lot. Thankfully, they were the best. We felt they were best of breed at the time. View full review »

We did look at one other solution but the other solution was not close to what Tufin was able to provide, given our enterprise requirements. That basically helped us move in the direction of Tufin. View full review »

I know they reviewed other solutions but I don't know which, for sure, since I inherited the project. I would assume AlgoSec and FireMon were reviewed as well. View full review »

We did not have have time to evaluate other solutions. Also, we already had Tufin in place in our other company. This seems to be a better solution than AlgoSec, which I have used in the past. I have also seen FireMon, and Tufin gave us what we needed. I didn't see a reason to explore other solutions. View full review »

There is so much competition in the market. Every vendor claims its product is number-one in the market. But so far Tufin - it partners with Check Point - is fine. We didn't evaluate any competitors or consider other products. View full review »

We did look at a few other vendors. The power that Tufin has behind it is the reason they chose it. They saw that it had a lot of capability compared to its competition. View full review »

We did a comparison of three products and Tufin was recommended at the time. We got quotes from Tufin and another product, and Tufin came in under. I just talked to two people who switched to Tufin from another product. It seems to be the leader of the pack. View full review »
Mohd Majmi Mohamad
Regional OSH at Pos Malaysia Berhad
We have done other PoCs with AlgoSec and FireMon. But as we compared Tufin with them I preferred Tufin rather than AlgoSec. They were basically the same, but then Tufin came out with a lot of changes in their recent update. Also, Tufin is real-time while AlgoSec is near-real-time, for policy management. View full review »

Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
We compared AlgoSec, Tufin, and Skybox side-by-side. Originally, the team chose Skybox. They threw in what a lot of other groups had wanted, like the network team, security team, and DevOps team. When I sat them down (because I voted Tufin), I asked them why and they gave me all of the explanations that were all somebody else's reasons, not ours. I told them that this tool is for us and we needed a true orchestration automation tool. Not one that supports everyone else's automation, and we need one for firewalls. View full review »
