Likelihood to Recommend

AWS WAF

AWS WAF is highly appropriate to interrupt or prevent cyber attacks because when implementing rules, whether they are specific or centralized, so any application that has these vulnerabilities is protected.
Implementing managed rules creates greater security to protect both API and applications.If implemented along with other AWS tools, the security is much better, so if you want to protect applications against more specific attacks, it is ideal to integrate with Amazon CloudFront, which is a great benefit because it warns when thresholds are exceeded or specific attacks occur.AWS WAF is ideal to avoid common web attacks. For more specific attacks and scenarios, I don't recommend this.

Check Point Firewall Software Blade

I believe Check Point Firewall Software Blade is well suited for medium to large organizations with 500 employees or less. Anything more than that, I would choose a more enterprise level firewall like Dell SonicWALL. Check Point does not provide mobile device control or Wi-Fi network control without purchasing a different Check Point appliance.

Pros

AWS WAF

  • AWS WAF has the most developer-friendly API to create firewall rules.
  • AWS WAF provides OWASP security controls, which reduces developers' burden (i.e., SQL injection and cross-site scripting).
  • AWS WAF has customizable web security rules. The user can even push the rules through the API available, which is the great feature and helped me a lot.
  • It protects applications at layer 7 (HTTP) of the OSI model and not just layer 4 (TCP).

Check Point Firewall Software Blade

  • The management console is very easy to use. There is a lot of information on it which can seem overwhelming, but everything is right there in one page.
  • You have the ability to manage certain websites or IP addresses based on web content that is predefined or track individual end users.
  • The support for Check Point is excellent. If you are having trouble with the appliance, help is not far away. Techs will stay with you for hours if need be, to resolve any issues.

Cons

AWS WAF

  • The documentation offered is somewhat confusing, so it would be ideal if it were much more direct and precise.
  • Your initial configuration may be confusing, so the best option is to use the rule templates provided by AWS.
  • Its configuration is not unified with AWS, so it must be done separately and it takes some time.
  • The number of rules to be established is somewhat limited.

Check Point Firewall Software Blade

  • Check Point has a complex range of reporting tools, some of which can take time to learn and be comfortable with.
  • The firewall is solid and needs to have someone with training to manage it which means any little mistake can bring down the network and have you on the phone with Check Point support.
  • They are pricey for some of the hardware and reporting tools.

Usability

The product is highly scalable. It is easy to configure the rules and thereby helps us to mitigate many vulnerabilities.The interface and programming of the firewall provisions were easy to setup. Amazon clearly spent a lot of time figuring this out and perfecting it. It allows users to do customized configurations based on their needs. It provides protection against a number of security issues like XSS, SQL injection, etc. I would definitely recommend this for protecting your infra as you scale, since this basically protects and filters all requests hitting your application server.

Alternatives Considered

AWS WAF

Amazon's support was better for us in the end. Implementation was also easier as we're using other Amazon services currently.

Return on Investment

AWS WAF

  • The overall security of the web application increased effectively after deploying AWS WAF
  • No negative impacts were seen in the business
  • The developers were more confident in the overall security model of the web application being developed and it was easy to integrate WAF into the existing system as the application was also using AWS platform

Check Point Firewall Software Blade

  • Although there are better alternatives out there, Check Point delivers results for the price we paid for the system.
  • Since implementation, we have not have any major issues with the product, minor issues were resolved in a timely fashion.
  • Check Point currently fulfills our need for an outside facing firewall, when our organization grows larger, we will be looking at higher level enterprise solutions.
