AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer

Security Policy Visibility, Analysis and Auditing

AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer delivers visibility and analysis of complex network security policies across physical, virtual and cloud environments. It automates and simplifies security operations including troubleshooting, auditing and risk analysis. Using Firewall Analyzer, security and operations teams can optimize the configuration of firewalls, routers, load balancers and web proxies to ensure security and compliance.

Firewall Analyzer helps you:

  • Centrally manage and troubleshoot network security policies even across complex multi-vendor environments
  • Visualize complex networks with a dynamic network topology map
  • Cleanup and optimize firewall and router policies quickly and efficiently
  • Identify and mitigate risky firewall and router network access rules
  • Reduce firewall auditing time and costs by up to 80% with automated compliance reports
  • Easily enforce network segmentation



Visualize Your Network Security Policy

Network Topology Map

Firewall Analyzer simplifies daily network operations by automatically generating an interactive, self-updating topology map. This map scales to the largest and most complex of networks, and displays firewalls, NGFWs, routers, load balancers and web proxies from leading vendors as well as network subnets and security zones.

Using the map, security and operations teams gain instant visibility into the impact of security policies on network traffic, including powerful troubleshooting, change planning and "what-if" traffic queries.


Clean up and Optimize Firewall and Router Rulesets

Change Monitoring

Firewall Analyzer provides a wide range of actionable recommendations to cleanup, optimize, and tighten your security policy. It can uncover unused, duplicate and expired rules and objects, and can even consolidate similar rules.
Firewall Analyzer can also automatically identify and tighten overly permissive rules (e.g. ANY Service, Application, etc.) based on actual usage patterns. Additionally, Firewall Analyzer provides explicit recommendations on how to reorder rules for optimal firewall performance while retaining policy logic.


Prepare for Your Next Audit in Hours, not Weeks or Months

Auditing & Compliance

Firewall Analyzer automatically generates compliance reports for regulatory standards, such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOX, NERC, FISMA and ISO, as well as customized corporate policies, to greatly reduce audit preparation efforts and costs – by as much as 80%.

Firewall Analyzer instantly uncovers gaps in compliance and uniquely aggregates findings across your entire firewall and router estate into a single report. You can use this information to remediate any problems before reports are submitted to internal or external auditors. All "Big 4" auditing firms rely on AlgoSec when conducting audits.


Discover and Mitigate Risky Network Access Rules

Risk Mitigation

Firewall Analyzer discovers and prioritizes all risks and their associated rules in the network security policy.

Firewall Analyzer relies upon the broadest risk knowledgebase, consisting of industry regulations and best practices, as well as customized corporate policies, to ensure more risks are uncovered. Additionally, you can view risk score trends over time to get a clear picture of how your security efforts are working.


Unify Security Policy Management Across Hybrid Environments


Network Security Policy Optimization

Through support for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and VMware NSX, Firewall Analyzer delivers unified and streamlined security policy management across hybrid environments through a single console.

Mitigate Risk with Baseline Configuration Compliance

Baseline Configuration Compliance

Firewall Analyzer allows you to define baseline requirements for device configurations to minimize the risk of these devices being exploited. Firewall Analyzer can also automatically generate reports that identify non-compliant configurations.
Out-of-the-box baselines are included for many common devices, and Firewall Analyzer gives you the flexibility to extend existing baselines or create new ones.


Monitor and Audit All Security Policy Changes


Firewall Analyzer monitors every change to the network security policy and maintains a complete audit trail. Firewall Analyzer can send real-time e-mail alerts to network administrators, notifying them of unauthorized or risky changes.
