IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Which would you recommend to your boss, Algosec or FireMon?

One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is AlgoSec vs FireMon.

One user says about Algosec, "This product allowed us to identify unused rules more easily and doing this simplifies policies in our firewall. We now have documentation of our application with objects sync with real configuration."

Another user says about FireMon, "The ability for spotting the shadowed-based rules helps us to eliminate overlapping rules that may not be otherwise needed or maybe under-used. It helps us to identify that stuff and gives us the ability to go back and audit the firewalls."

In your experience, which is better and why?

AlgoSec offers the most extensive network security solution in the market. The solution spans from managing your network security from a business application perspective through Firewall optimization, compliance and network visibility to automated and customizable network security change workflow with "Zero Touch". In addition, the integration between the business application and the firewall optimization and compliance is tight and the 2 modules are enriching one anther.

I will be happy to explain more the added value AlgoSec's solution gives.

I prefer to go with POC's , as both doing same functions using different approaches, flexibilty is more with Algosec.

I would recommend on the Skybox Security product.
Compare to Algosec, Tufin and Firemon from Skybox you can get much more value and capabilities not only about compliance, visibility, rule usage and configuration and access compliance,
But also very strong vulnerability management and very strong cloud compliance capabilities.

I will be happy to explain more if necessary.
