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.

Datadog

Datadog is a no-brainer for any environment that relies on multiple servers. Even for one server, it's so much better to use for monitoring and alert capability than anything else I remember looking at before we started using Datadog. Teams can even use it to track their progress of investigating an alert so multiple people aren't unknowingly looking into the same exact issue unnecessarily.

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.

Datadog

  • APIs, the ability to interact with the data we pull into data dog is key. We port the information over to Servicenow, so the ability to pull everything into DataDog, then Servicenow, is a key component of our success here at Wayfair.
  • Simple Interface - clean, useful, effective. Allows users to use DataDog for one reason, get work done.
  • Lightweight agent on hosts

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

Datadog

  • User interface could be improved in some areas, looking for host information and the agent install link takes a bit of time.
  • Configuration of the agent is generally done via a config file which is a pro and a con. It would be nice to have some UI to configure various agent options.
  • Billing isn't entirely straightforward, they could use more reports to figure out the source of your monthly costs.

The user interface is quite intuitive with the exception of the network map. As a deployer of software, it is trivial to setup.

Our experience working with their support found them to be helpful and quick to respond. Also, as many of their integrations are open source, improvements we desired could be tracked and even driven by us. Their documentation is excellent and makes integrating their tooling simple and makes standing up monitoring for new application a quick and painless process.

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).

Datadog

New Relic APM is a great application performance monitoring tool, but the agent was producing an increased load on our system compared to Datadog. Datadog also gives the flexibility of going outside of the boundaries of the application and looking at system performance as well, which can have a large impact on application performance.

Return on Investment

AWS Firewall Manager

  • no need to manage security of all account separately
  • there's some quotes but you can ask amazon to increase quota
  • every policy cost you

Datadog

  • One of our critical production databases went down a couple of weeks back. Just because we had the Datadog monitoring enabled for that database, Datadog sent the alerts to PagerDuty and we were instantly notified via pager and email alert. We could act right away and bring up the database within a few mins.
  • Ability to create custom screenboards have allowed us to track the critical and warning alerts in front of our eyes all the time
