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.

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.

  • Better templates like pushing config. when a particular firewall checks in with CDO.

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

  • Client retention
  • Less need for tedious tasks (cost savings)
Nick Richardson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cisco Defense Orchestrator

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