Overall Satisfaction with AWS Firewall Manager

Amazon Web Services Firewall Manager is being used by our organization to manage the firewall settings across different user groups throughout our company. It has helped to simplify the administration of firewall settings for both onsite and remote workers. It also provides built-in protection from various types of DDoS attacks.
  • Centralize administration
  • Automatic protection
  • Cross-account protection
  • It could provide more tutorials
  • More training documents
  • It has provided enhanced protection for our organizations resources
  • It has allowed for faster setup of new users
  • CenturyLink Web Application Firewall (WAF)
AWS Firewall Manager provides a lot more functionality especially when it comes to larger organizations which can use the multi-account and cross-account automated management. It also provides a faster setup for new users provided that you have already well defined resource group policies in place. It is also more expensive than the WAF so you are paying for the enhanced management.

AWS Firewall Manager is well suited for situations where you have multi-account resource groups. In this situation Firewall Manager allows you to group resources by account, resource type, and by tag. It is also well suited for use with AWS Organizations and can automatically load the list of accounts from your AWS organization to allow you to group resources across different accounts. You would not get all of the advantages of Firewall Manager if you did not also use AWS Organizations.
