AWS Firewall Manager

AWS Firewall Manager is well suited for cloud environments that have a lot to manage and maintain. If you have a smaller scale cloud environment or on premise setup this may not be for you.

Azure Monitor

We were able to get a single pane of glass for all our monitoring needs on Azure Monitor. However, we would like to see it improve to auto scale out and scale in depending on the load without human intervention. This can help us get to the No Ops model and rely on automated processes rather than manual intervention.

Pros

AWS Firewall Manager

  • Filters internet traffic using features such as Access Control Lists (ACL) rules, stateful inspection, protocol detection, and intrusion prevention.
  • Logically separate networks hosting sensitive applications or line-of-business workloads.
  • AWS Firewall Manager supports thousands of rules that can filter out network traffic destined for known bad IP addresses or known bad domain names.

Cons

AWS Firewall Manager

  • Depends on AWS Config Rules, so the costs scale with implementing & managing another service
  • Terraform for Firewall Management is basically just JSON policies, needs to be more configurable outside of JSON
  • Pricing seems high for the service offered

I have not had to work with Azure Monitor support, so it is difficult to say how well the support team is. I assume that Azure has a well-versed team on the customer service side to assist with any issues customers may have. I may need them in the feature.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Firewall Manager

Simplified configuration with the ability to manage across
multiple applications. Amazingly simple and quick use for green field projects from
the initial development to implementation time, and combine with easy
deployment, manageability, elasticity in deployment, scalability and most
important thing is the integration into other AWS services. This
allow us to protect the entire organization of vulnerabilities by subscribing
to a Managed Rule for Web application firewall (WAF).

Azure Monitor

While other tools have their own unique capability, Azure Monitor helps us monitor essential PAAS services that are not supported by other tools. So even though we have one other APM tool, we still rely on Azure Monitor for some of the special PAAS services, this is a huge advantage.
