Overall Satisfaction with AlgoSec

I worked with AlgoSec supporting and helping other customers with issues on AlgoSec as a Technical support Eng and later as a Escalation engg.
  • Firewall policy overview and optimisation by rule reordering and suggestions to delete unused rules
  • Network map overview and implement topology changes based on source destination and port
  • Pci audit results and recommendations for a better score
  • Discover application based flows through auto-discovery and make changes to those flow.
  • The patching in AlgoSec is not that great. Many a times when they fix a issue, another one is created.
  • Traffic Simulation and Fireflow can use some improvement. User defined flow customisation needs a good amount of training.
  • Algosec has helped customers across the globe optimize their firewall policies and bring the best performance off their devices
  • AlgoSec supports a wide range of devices and is constantly working to include support for many others
  • The support and professional services team at AlgoSec is very knowledgeable and supportive.
Algosec has multi vendor support including cisco aci, nsx, aws and azure security groups. While most other vendors are lacking in the spectrum of the vendors. The ROI is best on this product.

As far as policy management goes, AlgoSec is the best one available in the market and no competing vendors like tufin and FireMon are any close.
