Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco IOS Security

When it comes to security on the edge of your network (downstream) Cisco's IOS security features provide pretty much everything you need when it comes to securing your network, network devices, and access. I would absolutely recommend Cisco switches due to many reasons, but a big reason is security.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

Tufin is great for reviewing firewall policy and changes, it makes tracking access down and auditing policy a breeze. We are replacing firewalls and Tufin has been a great help to review/audit/create new policies. We are finding that Tufin is lacking for use with Palo Alto. You can either work through Panorama and lose a lot of reporting or the firewall and lose the security policy. Tufin has stated they are working on this but it is the biggest issue we are facing.

Cons

Cisco IOS Security

  • Cisco could provide an initial set up script for those are not used to the CLI (Command Line Interface). With that initial script, people could easily deploy the security features instead of having to learn how to use the commands.
  • The web interface that Cisco provides with the routers, although it’s useful to set up the security features, it could also have some sort of tutorials to help people understand the main concepts of iOS security.
  • You have to license iOS security separately from the main OS. For that reason, sometimes it tends to be a little expensive if you have a small business.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

  • Palo Alto Networks Integration
  • Better/more user friendly api for integration with ticketing systems
  • Web UI structure is not user-friendly

Alternatives Considered

Cisco IOS Security

I also like HP Procurve. It is my choice when the customer cannot afford Cisco. Cisco is better all round but HP is the only other [product] I will use if I have a choice.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

Tufin and AlgoSec both provide a lot of the same features. I would say the choice of the two depend on your overall objective and use case. Both tools have features to accomplish different things. For firewall policy review, they are about the same in my opinion. We are currently evaluating RedSeal and don't have enough data to compare. RedSeal may lack some of the change features but appears to give the same level of reporting functionality.

Return on Investment

Cisco IOS Security

  • Cisco iOS security helped our business deploy a relatively safe solution for a small amount of money.
  • If you don’t have enough budget to invest in a robust and expensive firewall solution, you can safely use Cisco iOS security to protect your branch or remote office without compromise your network.
  • Because Cisco iOS security uses a simple command-line based interface, you can deploy standardized scripts and keep the operational costs low.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

  • I think if you correctly configure your SIEM, you don't need Tufin. You can correlate a lot of things for firewalls.
