I am currently researching firewall security management tools. I am interested in Palo Alto Networks Panorama and AlgoSec.
What are the differences between Palo Alto Networks Panorama and AlgoSec? Which tool do you prefer?
Thank you for your help.

Hi Dear Anouar, I want to explain something to avoid misunderstanding. Palo Alto Networks (PAN) Panorama is the management dashboard for Palo Alto Firewalls; which is provided by PAN and comes with a license. However AlgoSec is used as a Firewall Analyzer tool to analyze firewall rules according to their severities, configuration mistakes, shadowing or redundant rules, etc. If you want a solution to analyze your firewalls and harden them; you can consider preferring a firewall analyzer solution. If you want to manage your firewall configurations, create rules, routes, etc., you can prefer to have PAN panorama; instead of managing the firewalls by connecting each of them separately.

It can take a few minutes to test to see if any changes are successful or not. This needs to be improved. A change commit should take a second, not a minute or more. Panorama does suffer from performance issues, which they need to resolve. Also, technical support isn't very responsive and could use some improvement.
The solution needs to improve its pricing model. Panorama needs to work on its configuration issues. They should also focus on firewall management. Many clients have multiple firewalls, so Palo Alto should offer better management of them. They could model themselves off of AlgoSec, or maybe FireMon which are other very good firewall management tools.
