Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)

Security services help you get the most from your technology investments. Organizations that use services for security get access to consultants and technical experts to support their staff with the latest knowledge and capabilities. They also help improve time to threat detection and response. And, by reducing complexity, you’ll improve your ability to adapt to changing business priorities.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

Tufin is great for reviewing firewall policy and changes, it makes tracking access down and auditing policy a breeze. We are replacing firewalls and Tufin has been a great help to review/audit/create new policies. We are finding that Tufin is lacking for use with Palo Alto. You can either work through Panorama and lose a lot of reporting or the firewall and lose the security policy. Tufin has stated they are working on this but it is the biggest issue we are facing.

Cons

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)

  • Areas like Computer Security need a console to view events.
  • The different support areas would be greatly benefited if they managed to have consoles and alerts that told them where to mitigate the risks.
  • The scope of areas such as Monitoring and Dispatch have a broad vision with tools such as applying the necessary filters for your environment.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

  • Better/more user friendly api for integration with ticketing systems

Our network engineers never have a long wait when working with Cisco Support on the Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances) when they need to open a ticket.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)

We selected Firepower Management Center because we needed to centralize equiment management and it was easily adapted to our architecture,since at that time we had an ASA with IPS / IDS modules and an FTD and a need to have a URL control and detect a Highest level of threats with the AMP module.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

Tufin and AlgoSec both provide a lot of the same features. I would say the choice of the two depend on your overall objective and use case. Both tools have features to accomplish different things. For firewall policy review, they are about the same in my opinion. We are currently evaluating RedSeal and don't have enough data to compare. RedSeal may lack some of the change features but appears to give the same level of reporting functionality.

Return on Investment

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)

  • We lost some features like servers load balancing.
  • But, we got NGFW with a very powerful IPS on one box with a single management interface. We also saved money and data center space from buying multiple boxes (one for IPS and the other as Firewall).
  • We also saved team time and multiple devices management, and we got the benefits of a single vendor providing support.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

  • I think if you correctly configure your SIEM, you don't need Tufin. You can correlate a lot of things for firewalls.
