Excellent product to use and has tremendous support from OEM. We have not faced many problems or issues using this product. We also have not tested AI or ML capabilities and are very keen to start working with it now. Overall, it is well-maintained, robust platform tool for firewall management.

It is clear that it is difficult to have the perfect tool with all that you need. As we expect, it is not an ideal world. AlgoSec is, in general, doing fine. Today, this tool is very stable and permits us to improve the efficiency of the day to day work by our technical teams. It also allows the end-user to be more directly involved in the requests, highly reducing the time between the request and the final implementation. The only advice or remark I can add here is what concerns me with the network maps. This is the cause of what makes the initial setup harder than expected. The reason is because of the network map configuration. There is no visibility on the provider because they cannot grant us access, meaning the configuration has to mostly be performed manually.

We have more than ten clusters behind our firewall. It is essential that we track the changes in policies and the compliance status of devices. AlgoSec can easily do that.

Many users have the tool but don't use it with everything it can offer. What I recommend is that you explore all of the features of the product.

All manufacturers on the market are constantly improving. The beautiful and simple thing about AlgoSec is the short distances and that you are heard. If you want a feature implemented, or a report for a certain country adapted or created, then they will take your request seriously right up to the C-Level. The implementation takes place promptly and is customer-friendly.

This solution is very useful for any type of organization with multiple network security devices such as firewalls, routers, etc, and have the goal of achieving business security and automation. AlgoSec has main three components that can be purchased in different phases if required. They are: * AFA: AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer * AFF: AlgoSec FireFlow * ABF: AlgoSec BusinessFlow

Put it in, let it collect for up to 12 months and ensure you run regular reports. Only then can you be sure that you don't use rules. Remember, DR testing and failovers sometimes happen on a 6 or 12-month basis, and removing rules covering this will cause issues when you least expect it.

I would recommend investing the time in a full project to implement the AlgoSec suite if you will be using more than just the Analyzer piece. Fireflow and Business flow would benefit from dedicated standup time and effort to achieve the best results.

It's not a solution to install and forget. To bring out the best of its value you must always keep generating reports and applying corrections. It's a great tool to have especially if you have too many juniors operators.
