Welcome to AppViz

The AlgoSec AppViz add-on enables you to view your security network policies from the perspective of your business applications. Business applications are individual business needs that require special traffic flows to be allowed in network security policies.

The AppViz add-on is layered over AFA, and also has an optional AppChange component layered over FireFlow. Customers who have additional licenses for AppChange can manage FireFlow change requests from AppViz, from the business application perspective.

Access AppViz

AppViz and the additional AppChange component are add-ons layered over AFA and FireFlow, respectively.

Do the following:

  • Access AppViz from the AFA or FireFlow left-side navigation menu.

    Click to open AppViz in a new browser tab.

  • Once open, AppViz has it's own left-side navigation menu and Administration area.

    To access the Administration area, click your username at the top-right and select Administration.
