Overall Satisfaction with AlgoSec

Algosec Firewall Analyzer provides complete visibility for network security policy management. We do not need to go to different firewalls and access those to make any changes or configure the policy. Using AlgoSec AFA, we can see where the particular traffic is blocked and configure the policies accordingly from a single management point.
  • Complete network policy visibility.
  • Firewalls rule optimization.
  • Automatically generate the reports for all leading industry regulations.
  • AlgoSec need to work on their support in India.
  • Insufficient documentation.
  • It should support other platforms like GCP, Alibaba, etc.
  • By generating automatic reports based upon regulatory industries, AlgoSec reduces the audit preparation efforts and costs.
  • Simulate the traffic query to see where traffic is blocked and automate the policy creation.
  • Firewall rules optimization and cleanup.
  • Identify and Mitigate risks and associate them to business applications.
Algosec is user-friendly and easy to implement and manage. The best part is it can be installed on-premises as well as on the cloud. It visualizes the complex networks and creates a dynamic network topology map. Using Firewall Analyzer, security and operations teams can optimize the configuration of firewalls, routers, web proxies, and related network infrastructure to ensure security and compliance.

Did AlgoSec live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of AlgoSec go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy AlgoSec again?

Yes

Algosec is best suited for those organizations that have a large number of firewalls from different vendors. In such a scenario, if you want to allow or deny something so you need to go on and login on to each firewall and make the changes. But with AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer, all the policies can be created from a single pane of management. If some traffic is getting blocked, even you can simulate the query from AFA to see where it's getting blocked. And policy creation can be automated.
