AWS Firewall Manager

With AWS our applications can run as they are anticipated. It is recommended if someone wants to secure applications from any kind of cyber attack. For some of the particular sort of attacks, it might not work so well as expected. Its capability is enhanced more if used along with AWS tools.

Cisco Defense Orchestrator

It is a great way to manage a vast number of firewalls. It can also be used to upgrade the firewalls as well. Great for monitoring VPN users. Config. standardization is possible.

Cons

AWS Firewall Manager

  • Its Support team charges are extremely high depending on the case.

Cisco Defense Orchestrator

  • Better templates like pushing config. when a particular firewall checks in with CDO.
  • Compliance checking for configurations would be great. For example: make sure http is shut and https is open.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Firewall Manager

AWS Firewall Manager is way better than our past experience of Azure Firewall with which we have witnessed a lot of troubles and luckily AWS proved as a guardian angle for us with its features and perfect working and compatibility. From protection to the facility to filter out web traffic everything sounds perfect. AWS is not as tricky and difficult to begin like that of Azure Firewall.

Cisco Defense Orchestrator

We didn't really look at another product - don't think there is one. Cisco Prime I think was an option, but we didn't like the GUI and didn't consider it.

Return on Investment

AWS Firewall Manager

  • It has a system to filter out web traffic.
  • It gives complete security to keep our system clean from tricky files.
  • its documentation is highly perplexing and should be made unambiguous.
Samuel-Borris James | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cisco Defense Orchestrator

  • Much faster management.
  • Can access firewall without having to go on site if the VPN tunnel is down.
