My experience has been with small-scale infrastructure and it works very well.

The logging needs improvement. The Firewall Manager logs are fine but when it comes to the actual logs for the firewall, that's where there is a problem. Enabling and configuring the logging is not that straightforward.

In AWS, there are so many features that many users get confused about what to use and what not to use. For example, AWS Firewall Manager has perhaps 100 features but only a maximum of 15 to 20 would be generally used. I would say that 80% of the features confuse the users, which makes the system more complicated than it needs to be. The price of this solution could be reduced. The system should be more customizable.

The most valuable feature is the centrally managed rule. I also like the central orchestration.

Neither, I would go with FireMon. They are the market leader. when it comes to Traffic Flow Analysis, Scalability, architecture and vision, they are the clear leader.

It very depends what you expect from such system. Tufin and AlgoSec have another approach to same things. The better way to take decision is to make an PoC with both systems. You can than discover if both of them covers all configuration features of Firewall, L3 devices, Load Balancers, Cloud Services, Proxy etc, which you are using in your Network Infrastructure. There is no simple answer for such question.
