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.

Palo Alto firewall only affords by Large level infrastructure having a budget for Security Prospect. I will recommend it for the Card information industry & Confidential data solutions. Because it provides a bucket of security features that are not easily vulnerable.

Pros

AWS Firewall Manager

  • AWS Firewall Manager is very easy to operate it in the first place unlike other software of this type.
  • I highly adore the ease it provides in configuration management by API
  • It provides protection to the applications from diverse forms of attacks.
Samuel-Borris James | TrustRadius Reviewer

Next-Generation Firewalls - PA Series

  • The PA handles VPN connectivity without missing a beat. We have multiple VPN tunnels in use for redundancy to cloud-based services.
  • The PA has great functionality in supporting failover internet connections, again with the ability to have multiple paths out to our cloud-based services.
  • The PA is updated on the regular with various security updates, we are not concerned with the firewall's ability to see what packets are really flowing across the network. Being able to see beyond just IP and port requests lets you know things are locked down better than traditional firewalls.
  • It is a great overall kit, with URL filtering and other services that fill in the gaps between other solutions without breaking the bank.

Cons

AWS Firewall Manager

  • Its Support team charges are extremely high depending on the case.
  • It has a limit to set up rules.
Samuel-Borris James | TrustRadius Reviewer

Next-Generation Firewalls - PA Series

  • Our specific model is a bit slow and outdated and takes up to 10 minutes to commit a configuration change.
  • Nested security rules would be helpful instead of a linear approach. But rule creation in general is very simple.
  • Documentation gives a very straight forward answer to some items but is very vague in others.
  • Support could be a little better. An issue we had a tech was insistent it was the "other guy" and it ended up being the very latest PAN OS upgrade.

The PA5220s have far exceeded what we have expected out of them. It was a bit of a learning curve coming from another vendor, but everything falls into place now with ease. The capabilities of the solution still surprise us, allowing us to remove other costly hardware and providing a single point of management needed

In my opinion, the Palo Alto Firewall is the simplest firewall in terms of management interfaces; though it has more advanced options that apply to more advanced use cases. Configuring basic features on the firewall is nearly self-explanatory; configuring more advanced features can be met with very thorough vendor documentation.

We've run into a couple undocumented bugs, but that seems to happen with every brand and technology. Any time we've had to engage Palo Alto support they've always been professional, knowledgeable and prompt. In almost all cases we've been able to resolve our issues without having to escalate our tickets.

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.

No one can say any other companies in this time is better than Palo Alto Networks Next-Generatoin Firewalls. Palo Alto offers very advanced features which protect you[r] organization. Advanced malware protection, anti spam, lots of other threats.

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

Next-Generation Firewalls - PA Series

  • Overall, even though the device is very expensive (both hardware and licensing), the product does produce a decent ROI, given that one (or HA pair) of devices can do so many things, such as anti-virus, anti-malware, URL filtering, SSL decryption, SSL VPN, routing, etc.
  • There will definitely be sticker shock when you're renewal comes up annually (or after 3 years), so be sure to look very carefully at the recurring costs of this product, with respect to licensing and hardware/software maintenance.
