Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 →

"Policy management and the cartography of the network have been the most valuable features.""Being able to customize your own clarity to that aspect of change management.""It is an important application for controlling and monitoring firewall rules. It is useful for making and monitoring the changes.""Visibility is its largest and most valuable feature. You can see everything or all the devices on the network for each customer. It provides you a larger view of what might be wrong with the network and how you can improve it with firewall rules, etc. If you are talking about secure change, being able to automate the entire change process is pretty much the winner for us. It is going to really reduce the time that it takes for us to do changes, and we can just go out and get more customers.""The technical support is pretty good.""All the basic functions work well.""The solution is good, and no clients complained about it.""The solution is quite scalable."

More Tufin Pros →

"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 →

"Its price is reasonable, but it could be lower. It could have a more effective approach for creating and changing rules. It could provide advice or suggestions for a better understanding of rules and changing the rules. There should be suggestions for the rules that need to be changed to make them less risky.""The initial setup can be tough.""Their pricing can be better. It is not very transparent.""The pricing could be a bit more competitive.""The initial setup of Tufin was complex. We had some issues with the architecture.""The solution does not have automation with other Firewalls.""The older version that we have doesn't support some newer firewall vendors.""Lacks ability to create a Terraform that would enable deployment without manual steps."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "It's quite an expensive solution."
  • "Price could always be better, but there are always consequences."
  • "The price is on the cheaper side."
  • "Its price is reasonable, but it could be lower. It has been cost-effective for us. We have a contract for three years."
  • "Because we're quite a large company, the price wasn't too much of a factor for us."
  • "The pricing is reasonable."
  • "There is a permanent license for devices, but it's not relative to a device itself. Once you purchase 10 licenses for virtual appliances or virtual context, you can put them into different virtual firewalls, but you can reuse these licenses for other devices if you don't need them for the old ones."
  • "It is expensive, but as compared to other players, it's more or less okay. Their pricing is not very transparent. This is my biggest point regarding Tufin. I've never seen a price list or something like that. It's always individual, and in many cases, it's very confusing to know what is the base and what is the price."
