Currently, the AWS Firewall Manager is sufficient for our needs because we don't use any software that will generate massive loads of traffic. My advice for anybody who is considering the AWS Firewall Manager is that it is pretty simple to set up and easy to use. I rarely have to look at it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would say if you have three or four deployments in your environment, then use Firewall Manager. If you have one and want your deployments to grow further in numbers I would always advise to go for Firewall Manager. When we do a neck to neck comparison it's all different. My recommendation to go with Firewall Manager depends. I feel that when it comes to firewall protection, I would always prefer AWS. If you're looking for full-fledged network firewall capabilities, obviously go for AWS Firewall. I would rate it an eight out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is to do a cost-benefit analysis of using AWS Firewalls versus using an open-source solution. That said, I do recommend that people use this product. Obviously, it depends on the requirements so I can not simply recommend it to somebody without knowing a little bit more about their environment, but in some cases, I would recommend it immediately. From a technical perspective, it is a good product. From a customizability perspective, there is room for improvement. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We are currently developing a UI and a set of tools for users to be able to easily configure their AWS firewall. The AWS Firewall Manager is one of the solutions that were are working with for this. For industries such as banking and finance, there are regulatory requirements and compliance policies that companies have to pass. For example, if it is an application that requires the transfer of money then specific compliance would be in place. The AWS Firewall Manager makes it easy to configure and select the type of security required for the industry.

We use the publication firewalls to manage all these rules and the group view. It's for all the GDPR rules for the publication firewalls rules. In every department each day we discuss the GDPR calls, or we'll have acquired rules. Some of the rules can be copies of the all the existing rules plus a few nuances that each has.

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. I think that the pricing is okay, given that we are saving on bandwidth and also protecting our servers against threats. Support contracts are in addition to the standard licensing fees.
