Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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.""The most valuable features are Firewall Assurance and Vulnerability Control.""The most valuable feature is firewall management.""It shows me a client's or an organization's entire network. I can see everything.""It has a good policy management feature and can provide customers with good quality outputs.""The port division management was the solution's most valuable aspect for our organization.""It's very supportive and very user-friendly.""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."

"It provides very good reports. It can easily integrate with multiple firewalls, such as Cisco, Juniper, Palo Alto, and Checkpoint. We can push a policy from Tufin to a firewall, which is a very good feature. We can monitor all access rules and the operating system of a firewall.""It's user-friendly. It's easy to understand menus on the web GUI. That's a good feature for us. I can say that it's doing what it's supposed to do. It also integrates well with other products like Check Point.""The technical support is pretty good.""The clarity around the auditing provides the most value for us.""Visibility is its largest and most valuable feature. You can see everything or all the devices on the network for each customer. It provides you a larger view of what might be wrong with the network and how you can improve it with firewall rules, etc. If you are talking about secure change, being able to automate the entire change process is pretty much the winner for us. It is going to really reduce the time that it takes for us to do changes, and we can just go out and get more customers.""The reporting on offer is very good. Tufin makes nice reports.""All the basic functions work well.""Being able to customize your own clarity to that aspect of change management."

"The support could be improved.""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.""The initial setup with Skybox Security is hard. You need one or two strong security engineers on your team.""Change Manager can be improved. If they can improve Change Manager so that whatever we want to do on a firewall, we are able to do it through Change Manager, it will be helpful for us. Whenever we are doing a change, it only does them at an L3 and L4 level, but all the firewalls are at the application layer. So, whatever needs to be done on the firewall, we aren't able to get it done through Change Manager. Currently, this functionality is not there because of which we are sometimes losing customers. I can create a role on Layer 3, Layer 4, but when it comes to the application layer, such as configuring and defining URLs or other things at the application level, it can't be done through Change Manager. Customers demand that they should be able to do everything through Change Manager. They don't want to do it through some other mechanism to accomplish their complete change management policy. They don't want to use a firewall manager because sometimes, they don't have any manager. They ask if they can use our solution so that a manager is not required. If Change Manager can do all the management automatically without involving any other manager, it will be great. They can also provide better integration with other managers so that everything can be done through a central point.""The most recent update was not tested with all of the vendors before it was released, so some of the features are misbehaving.""The price could be cheaper.""The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich.""The cloud site could be better. They should provide some use cases to help users."

"They've got such a large number of APIs, and it is so easy to use their APIs. Effectively, they allow us to use it with anything. The only way to improve it more is by offering support for implementing their APIs into certain hardware or software that we might use. They can provide support for implementing APIs.""It would be better if they modernized the web GUI. The web interface GUI is simple and not complicated, but it's also too old.""I would like to see AI elements included with this solution.""The pricing of the solution is rather expensive.""Its price is reasonable, but it could be lower. It could have a more effective approach for creating and changing rules. It could provide advice or suggestions for a better understanding of rules and changing the rules. There should be suggestions for the rules that need to be changed to make them less risky.""The pricing could be a bit more competitive.""They need to offer more support to vendors, such as Cisco, Checkpoint, Fortinet, and Forcepoint.""They are a little bit behind on some of their support for the Palo Alto firewall platform. I'd like to see that catch up, specifically around importing certain objects."
