    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.

    Skybox Security

    For any customer that has a complex network environment spanning globally, skybox helps manage firewall policy compliance for many vendors quite easy. It has a variety of security and network vendors that it is compatible with in its database.

    Pros

    AWS Config

    • The ability to track changes in AWS is paramount, AWS config allows you to do this
    • Allows the auditing of an AWS account
    • Can view history of an account that has AWS config enabled

    Skybox Security

    • Skybox manages compliance for firewalls better than we have seen with other tools.
    • Skybox integrates into standard change management tools so change control can flow through Skybox and assist with all decisions to implement a change.
    • The Skybox network map is more detailed than other management tools showing us paths other tools didn't find.

    Cons

    AWS Config

    • It's only AWS, no third party.
    • Not the most intuitive interface, but with a little getting used to it is OK.

    Skybox Security

    • User experience. On the first approach, it's not the simplest tool that I have ever used.
    • Web-based console. In my honest opinion it's very important [to have] this type of functionality to extend the use of Skybox.
    • Too many updates of the product.

    It is user friendly and quite easy to use. It centralizes all info in one portal and generates good reports to help you visualize and assess your change management decision

    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.

    The support team needs to be improved especially in their response and awareness about recent bugs in their solution. For example, sometimes they are not aware about how to integrate specific vendors like Microsoft Azure and they still don't have answers to it until now.

    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.

    Return on Investment

    AWS Config

    • A "Big Fish" company that is more concerned about the security of their data came aboard with us more easily since they trust us with the AWS config setup
    • Less time to debug or finding out issue on infrastructure whenever it happens
    • Easy and fast to roll back whenever changes that caused issues happen

    Skybox Security

    • Overall ROI is good as this product is an augmentation for us but we already have a mature security program with an experienced security team so the ROI is high.
