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.

Cisco Defense Orchestrator is an ideal software to easily manage firewalls at the enterprise level, as well as to implement security policies that allow the corporate infrastructure to remain free of threats that can put at risk all the devices that are handled on a daily basis. For example, it is ideal for preventing network intrusions, since it has the ability to block malware and any suspicious activity. In addition, the fact that it is based on a single console provides the benefit of keeping all devices under view and thus preventing any threat in the simplest way.

  • 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.

I give this score because I believe that Cisco Defense Orchestrator helps our company to be resilient, this is because this software is also focused on offering security resilience at the enterprise level, that is, through its features such as high visibility, acceleration of threat detection and response, simple management, and end-to-end protection. By having it, it is more feasible to avoid disasters or risks in the devices that are handled daily and of course avoid data loss and, given this, be able to recover quickly if something happens.

Cisco Defense Orchestrator is a software that is easy to implement, although knowledge is required for it, but if you do not have it, going to its valuable support team is very helpful. If done knowingly, this process can take less than two hours. Having a simple implementation is a valuable feature because it saves time and expense.

For a
business that doesn't use any software or applications that will generate high
volumes of traffic, AWS Firewall Manager is the ideal choice. The method of
creating an initial configuration and user-friendliness is simple. Along with
other AWS services, we also created portals for the HR division, with a focus
on recruitment. we also created a User Interface and a set of tools. The AWS
Firewall Manager is the only thing we need.

We used the on box management platform. This required API usage for automating things. It was not scalable and a lot of features are not there. There are platforms like manage engine, but they are not Cisco FP native and had limitations as well.
