Azure Firewall

Azure Firewall is well suited for most mid sized and large sized companies that deal with thousands of users within multiple environments. Azure Firewall allows you to protect business assets by preventing malicious attacks from entering the network. Azure Firewall would be less suited for a small company that does not use a vpn or have users outside of the office as something smaller would be more appropriate.

BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager

F5 Advanced Firewall Manager is good for large organizations that need to have a consistent experience for all end users. Might be a little much in the terms of complexity for smaller organizations. Either way, it provides a strong solution that meets the needs of both the IT security group and the end-user.

BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager

SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager is a bit easier to initially set up than F5 Advanced Firewall Manager but not as robust in its ability to manage different devices with different profiles. Different machines need different access and F5 Advanced Firewall Manager is better at allowing flexibility in identifying different devices and managing what they can access.
