Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center

Cisco FMC is best suited for medium to large-scale organizations. FMC can be deployed as a physical or virtual appliance, or from the cloud. Centralized management. It's easier than ever to manage events and policies for these network security solutions. Integration with Cisco Secure Workload (formerly Tetration) helps enable consistent visibility and policy enforcement for distributed and dynamic applications across the network and workload.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

Well suited scenarios -1) Firewall Policy / Ruleset management2) Where all the products are from Tufin like TOS ST, SC, SecureApp etc 3) Where customer focuses on ruleset compliance - USP violations, and other featuresLess suited -1) Agnostic/distributed environment - Tough with integrate with 3rd party like CyberArk2) FW recertification processes / exception process when complex process is included

Cons

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center

  • Stability when managing firewalls, we're having issues with Firewall 01 and Firewall 02 remaining in sync
  • Reporting when it comes to access control policy rules - there is no way to export a report of the rules easily. Using a custom Python script on the Cisco forums is the only way to easily export a CSV.
  • Support for policy and route-based site-to-site VPN was not available until 6.6.0 and later. This forced us to purchase ASAs to bridge that gap.
  • Dashboard reporting - when clicking a link for more information, nothing displays. Currently working with Cisco on the support case, which has been escalated.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

  • Palo Alto Networks Integration
  • Better/more user friendly api for integration with ticketing systems
  • Web UI structure is not user-friendly

Overall usability is an eight for me because it is easy to manage the firewall policies and monitor the devices' health. The configurations are all done in the GUI which makes it more convenient and hassle free. You can also see the devices' health and the progress of the task thru its taskbar.

Support Rating

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center 7.6
Based on 8 answers
We have the direct support of the manufacturer through its service channels, the attention is 24/7, and the response time is acceptable. The support for this tool is almost nil. It all depends on the level of implementation is carried out so that it can fail and request collaboration. Anyway, the manufacturer backs the entire Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances) solution.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center

We chose Cisco [Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)] as our primary network and security partner. We wanted the stability of one vendor for all these products and at the time no other vendor really supplied the entire network and security stack. Cisco also was great at laddering our discounts when purchasing more products from them versus going to competitors for certain products. The most important thing is, with having so much of our network and security products all being Cisco when updating any device/software we know we should have little to no issues afterwards. All due to Cisco's internal controls to test across their product line. This enables us to be more aggressive (at least for security) in keeping our equipment up to date both software and security update-wise.

Tufin Orchestration Suite

1) Fairly okay overall but definitely needs improvement overall Vs the other products available in the market like Palo Alto XSOAR2) Cost wise okay at the beginning but when client demands add-ons/ more features/customization tailored to their needs, Tufin Orchestration Suite recommends RFE / custom costs/development costs3) USP feature is cool to use overall Vs FireMon4) Tufin ProServ needs to buckle-up/Support compared to other competitors in the market

Return on Investment

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center

  • It's a very straightforward and user-friendly tool that has enhanced the total detection of malware and other threats t from intrusion into our network.
  • Provides stable deep network scanning, security visibility, and protection from unauthorized access.
  • The platform modular allows us to deploy across multiple budget cycles.

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.
