Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The interface is intuitive and it is easy for the users.""The most valuable feature is the centrally managed rule. I also like the central orchestration.""Once this solution is set up, we hardly have to touch it."

More AWS Firewall Manager Pros »

"The technical support is very good. They've always been helpful.""FireMon is nice and provides 360-degree user views.""The firewall assessment feature is great.""The most valuable feature is the Firewall reviews for our company compliance.""FireMon saves us a lot of time and it's nice because if you're adding a rule that's similar to another rule, it'll tell you so sometimes you can just edit the one and add another source or destination in there without creating a duplicate rule. It enables you to consolidate and have fewer, more meaningful rules. We're saving around 30% of our time."

More FireMon Pros »

Cons
"The system should be more customizable.""Enabling and configuring the logging is not that straightforward.""This solution is suitable for a small-scale enterprise and may not scale up to a very high volume of traffic or a large number of servers."

More AWS Firewall Manager Cons »

"The cost of the solution is pretty expensive. It would be ideal if they could work on their pricing.""I don't like that it comes with bugs, constant issues, and limited functionality.""FireMon could be easier to use and flexibility regarding reporting could be improved.""The advanced features are complex in setting up the rules.""It comes as a Linux appliance on a server and we're not a Linux shop, we're more of a Windows shop. It would be great if they could automate or integrate the backups into it and other things through their GUI interface, just to make the management of Linux a little more transparent."

More FireMon Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The AWS Firewall Manager is a little on the costly side.""The licensing is on a pay-as-you-go basis and we are billed monthly."

"FireMon is cheaper than AlgoSec.""Pricing is reasonable."

Overview

AWS Firewall Manager is a security management service which allows you to centrally configure and manage firewall rules across your accounts and applications in AWS Organization. As new applications are created, Firewall Manager makes it easy to bring new applications and resources into compliance by enforcing a common set of security rules. Now you have a single service to build firewall rules, create security policies, and enforce them in a consistent, hierarchical manner across your entire infrastructure.

Using AWS Firewall Manager, you can easily roll out AWS WAF rules for your Application Load Balancers, API Gateways, and Amazon CloudFront distributions. Similarly, you can create AWS Shield Advanced protections for your Application Load Balancers, ELB Classic Load Balancers, Elastic IP Addresses and CloudFront distributions. Finally, with AWS Firewall Manager, you can enable security groups for your Amazon EC2 and ENI resource types in Amazon VPCs.

FireMon, the only agile network security policy management (NSPM) platform, brings visibility, control, and automation to enterprise cloud and hybrid network infrastructures.

  • To drive agility across hybrid networks, the headless orchestration API allows customers to integrate with any existing system or process including IT Service Management platforms like ServiceNow, Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) tools like Splunk Phantom and Palo Alto Cortex SOAR, and DevOps platforms like Red Hat Ansible and HashiCorp Terraform.
  • To drive security efficiency and eliminate misconfigurations caused by complexity and manual processes, the platform addresses inefficient rule creation and change processes, delivers risk assessment of change through pre-change simulation and provides policy change recommendation.
  • To meet scale and heterogeneity requirements, FireMon normalizes policy across thousands of firewalls, devices, and cloud security groups through a single interface.

FireMon customers routinely experience up to 90% improvements in network security policy efficiency while eliminating common misconfigurations which lead to breaches and compliance violations.
