Pros
"Overall the solution does a good job."

More ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer Pros →

"The port division management was the solution's most valuable aspect for our organization.""The features that I have found most valuable with Skybox Security Suite, and this is because I work on the security side, are the firewall assurance, the change manager and the vulnerability control. These three features are the most impressive from Skybox Security.""It has a good policy management feature and can provide customers with good quality outputs.""The most valuable feature is firewall management.""The solution offers very nice dashboards and they've recently added a very good Java-based web interface.""The solution's simplicity of use is its most valuable feature.""It can be integrated with a vulnerability management solution. When a client comes, apart from pitching network and firewall change management, we are recommending having vulnerability management. So, rather than just having the audit of the firewall, they can integrate it with their vulnerability management solution, which could be Rapid7, Qualys, or any other solution. This provides them the most value out of the platform. That is the way we are approaching our customer base.""Skybox deployment is simple, and it's very useful."

Cons
"The solution lacks a lot of features that other products have in the marketplace."

More ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer Cons →

"The support could be improved.""The most recent update was not tested with all of the vendors before it was released, so some of the features are misbehaving.""The solution needs to add more automation and orchestration capabilities. Those features would make the solution much stronger.""The initial setup with Skybox Security is hard. You need one or two strong security engineers on your team.""The cloud site could be better. They should provide some use cases to help users.""The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich.""The price could be cheaper.""The solution was quite technical. It would be easier to manage if the solution was more specific about aspects of the solution and provided more advisory around how to use it effectively. It would help users a lot if they were more clear about everything."
