I manage the AWS Cloud infrastructure for my organization and I use the Amazon firewall. We have developed a couple of portals related to the HR industry, in particular the recruitment. As part of it, we have used all of the services required to deploy a typical job portal, starting from route managers. We have DNS servers, web servers, app servers, database servers, and S3 buckets. We also perform API calls from the file services. I have managed different instances of the firewall and this solution is another layer that helps me with centralized management. We do not concern ourselves with analysis and the determination of root cause when problems occur.

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.

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.

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.
