AlgoSec

It is well suited for firewall security optimisation, tuning, change management and application discovery.

Skybox Security

I can't think where Skybox is not appropriate - maybe in smaller companies depending on fund availability. The developers are constantly improving and getting the system to where it needs to be for management of next-generation firewalls and audit support.

  • Skybox manages compliance for firewalls better than we have seen with other tools.
  • Skybox integrates into standard change management tools so change control can flow through Skybox and assist with all decisions to implement a change.
  • The Skybox network map is more detailed than other management tools showing us paths other tools didn't find.

Cons

  • Enhanced integration via API (typically, this is only known by few Algosec users)

  • The management console could use work - move away from Java to HTML5 to something more lightweight
  • Dynamic objects are not properly identified in Skybox

Skybox performs better than Tufin and RedSeal and while AlgoSec performs as well, it requires far more manual configuration and customization than Skybox

Return on Investment

  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Application auto-mapping
  • Enhanced change control management

  • Reduces cost in terms of time and money to spend in remediation activity.
  • Improve the network topology and then it's possibile to reduce cost of network/security appliances where they're not necessary.
  • The cost of the solution is not trivial when the number of network appliances is big.
