AWS Config

It's really good if your infrastructure services is all in AWS, that means everything could be audited and monitored using AWS config. You also can create alarms to notify you or your team about any changes on your AWS resources which is very useful to prevent abuse if you have a fairly large team. It's also very useful whenever some third party wants to audit your AWS resources, if you have a fairly comprehensive AWS config configured, the auditing process will be easy since they only need to look at your AWS config setup.

McAfee Change Control

It gives more power to IT to track security breaches. Alerts make the job easier by ensuring that a constant overwatch is not needed. Gives a security boost with respect to adding policies as to what changes are allowed and what is not allowed especially when it comes to registry keys which is very crucial.

Would rate lower for other workloads but for AWS workloads its simple to set up, cost effective and customisable. Primary use case is compliance from a governance perspective.

AWS Config

I do not know or have used any other product in AWS cloud space that matches what AWS Config provides. We have some custom built monitoring and governance, however that is there because AWS Config does not provide it currently.

McAfee Change Control

It is an easy tool to use that makes a huge difference, easy setup, and does not consume much memory. The performance is smooth which is difficult to see in all the other similar tools. Its real-time and continuous updates on changes when changes are made while keeping options to update the policies to change files gives users a lot of options to be happy with.
