Pros
"AWS Firewall Manager isn't a separate solution when you create the virtual private cloud (VPC), so you can control the traffic through that security group."

More AWS Firewall Manager Pros →

"The ability to manage everything from the cloud is going to be the most valuable by far with this solution.""The most valuable feature is the inspection. It inspects before we have any traffic stops intrusion.""The most valuable features of Fortinet FortiGate Cloud are ease of use and the simplicity of maintenance and configuration. Additionally, the modularity of the solution is very easy to handle, it is convenient.""FortiGate Cloud's most valuable feature is that it's 100% managed.""The functionality of the solution is excellent.""The IPS and firewall function is valuable in Fortinet FortiGate Cloud.""It's user-friendly.""The installation is very simple."

Cons
"I would like to see AWS add some UTM features to the firewall. It would also be great if AWS Firewall had native IPS/IDS. They have the separate IPS/IDS, GuardDuty."

More AWS Firewall Manager Cons →

"They're still trying to digest that Meru acquisition and need a plan.""It is currently durable, but they may be able to improve it further. They can adapt Cisco technology because of its durability.""The robustness of the software could be improved.""The capacity to execute the solution needs to be improved. I would like to see management and analytics included in the solution.""We need some integration or communication between the endpoint and the firewall.""When we're upgrading, it's sometimes quite challenging, especially firmware. We usually don't upgrade unless we have a bug, and we still feel it's not safe to react instead of being proactive. We often have some delays when updating FortiGuard, too.""Some configuration changes would be helpful.""Currently with the solution, if you want to manage more than one FortiGate you have to use a VM, and a VM can control up to 10."

    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.

    FortiCloud can help with your wireless and security challenges in a number of ways. Our solution addresses common IT difficulties including time-consuming provisioning, high investment costs, complex management, vulnerability to advanced threats, and the need to easily scale with growth.
