See what our customers say about AlgoSec‘s firewall auditing solution
“With AlgoSec… the audit side of compliance took a lot less of our resources than it normally would”
“Using AlgoSec’s compliance reports, Packman’s engineering team were able to instantly demonstrate that no rules could be added to the firewall policy without proper approval — saving countless hours.”
“With AlgoSec we are proactive. Now we can see all the changes and reduce the risks we have regarding requirements for SOX as well as maintain all the policies for information security.”
I selected AlgoSec’s Security Management Solution because the reporting is very trust worthy, it helps reduce the operational workload for network security administrators, and ultimately it improves performance and security.
Frequently asked questions about firewall auditing and firewall audit tools
An automated security policy management solution such as AlgoSec will help you to improve your security posture and reduce the pain of ensuring compliance with regulations, industry standards and corporate policies. To help you start the audit process AlgoSec generates a dynamic, interactive network map of your security infrastructure, provides visibility into all changes to network security policies in real-time, and creates detailed firewall audit reports that help you make informed decisions about changes that affect risk or compliance levels.
AlgoSec ensures continuous compliance by providing you with detailed firewall compliance status reports. If the network security policy doesn’t adhere to regulatory or corporate standards, the reports instantly flag the exact firewall rules and devices that cause gaps in compliance. In addition, AlgoSec proactively checks all changes to firewall rules for compliance violations — giving you the information you need to proactively remediate problems and ensure continuous compliance across the network.
