Cons

More AWS Firewall Manager Cons »

"The solution should improve the speed at which they make changes on the system. Historically, they've been a bit slow in that respect. They should apply changes to the box quicker and more often.""The product could use some method of allowing for more customization and open integration with other controls.""Lacking in speed and reliability.""At times we have noticed that we get into issues where Panorama is going too slow or has other little problems. The performance can suffer occasionally.""This would be a better solution if it were more tightly integrated with the firewalls.""They need to do less bug-related releases and create versions that are stable for at least six months at a time. I don't find this issue in other solutions like Cisco, Check Point, FortiGate, or others. Those just provide a patch if there is a bug and we don't have to worry about downtime.""I would like to have better analytics.""It should have more connection with Threat Intelligence Cloud. They can also include features related to SecOps and automation API."

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."

More AWS Firewall Manager Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We pay approximately $3,000 a year in order to use the product.""The pricing model is reasonable for this class of solutions.""Palo Alto is expensive and there are many cheaper firewalls, but they do not work as well.""It is not a cheap solution.""The price of Panorama is expensive.""The solution is priced well and there is a license for this solution that we pay annually for.""We have a yearly license. The cost is not that high and not that cheap either.""Sometimes the company prefers to give a license to test the product in our environment before we go to the customer. But the customer should buy his own license, and that's the system here. The system is different between one country and another. Some countries say that the IT solutions provider should provide the license."

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.

Panorama network security management provides static rules and dynamic security updates in an ever-changing threat landscape. Reduce administrator workload and improve your overall security posture with a single rule base for firewall, threat prevention, URL filtering, application awareness, user identification, file blocking and data filtering.
