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.

Cons

Cisco Defense Orchestrator

  • Better templates like pushing config. when a particular firewall checks in with CDO.
  • Compliance checking for configurations would be great. For example: make sure http is shut and https is open.

ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer

  • Extra Functionality: There are a few features we don't use, either because of the size of our enterprise, or the way we have our firewalls configured. But all the elements to monitor and report on these features are still there, oftentimes meaning it takes longer to get to something we actually do use in the interface.
  • Setup Time: The initial setup was very simple, mostly just adding IPs and a syslog server. But for many of the more advanced features, like the NOC view, it can take a lot of tweaking to get right.
  • Intuitiveness: The reporting, while detailed and better than reading a raw syslog, can be unintuitive at times. Drilling down can sometimes get one stuck in a weird rabbit hole that isn't entirely relevant, and it's hard to get back to somewhere useful without just starting over.

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

ManageEngine was chosen over the use of AlgoSec as it slotted nicely with other Manage engine services we use for services such as active directory management. Other benefits include how lightweight and easy to install and set up it is. You can install it inside your network and start testing within 20 minutes.
