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.

Pros

Cisco Defense Orchestrator

  • Single plane of management.
  • VPN monitoring.
  • Remote management via external IP.
  • Cost.

ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer

  • Live traffic monitor: Firewall Analyzer lets us monitor traffic as it flows through the firewalls. It also breaks it down according to what type of traffic (e.g., web, mail, FTP, etc.) it is. It lists the tops hosts, the top users from traffic, and a lot of other useful statistics, all in a very visual format.
  • Security Monitoring: Another good visual graph Firewall Analyzer provides is the security one, which shows us if we're being attacked, from where, by what, how many, etc. It will also send us alerts when there's an alarm of any kind on the firewall.
  • Reporting: We can run all sorts of custom reports, and that helps us both with compliance and informing management as to what's going on. It would be difficult to describe all the various kinds of things we can include in these reports, but they are extensive.

Cons

Cisco Defense Orchestrator

  • Compliance checking for configurations would be great. For example: make sure http is shut and https is open.

  • Simple and intuitive dashboard.

Alternatives Considered

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.

ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer

We used to use the built-in functionality of our Cisco ASA firewalls, and it was so complex as to be practically useless. There was no good way to find useful data without some kind of analyzer. We briefly tried Kiwi Syslog Server, but it wasn't much better, mostly just showing the logs we already tried to sift through, but color-coding them in case there was something we'd written a rule about.Given the cost and features we demoed before implementation, we bought Firewall Analyzer because it did everything we needed it to for a reasonable price.
