ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer is a simple, low cost utility that does exactly what it advertises to

PROS

There are many pros to ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer, from the lower cost to ease of setup, ease of configuration and ease of use for users that may not be familiar with the solution.

CONS

We have not run into any cons, any issues/questions that have come up have been quickly responded to and handled by support as we learned the product.

Reason for choosing ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer

ManageEngine checked all the same boxes that SolarWinds did, it was easy to perform a PoC, easy to learn and was much less expensive.

Reasons for switching to ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer

It came time to review the solutions we were utilizing in-house, ManageEngine checked all the same boxes that our SolarWinds implementation checked and was much less expensive.

User Experiance

The overall experience is good. It logs all the user's traffic ( Dates, Times, and where ). If it is just an IP then you have the ability to do a DNS lookup. The reports are very graphical and nice to look at. These can also be set to automatically run and emailed to you which is great. Once the application is setup it is very much an application that just runs in the background logging activity and then emails you the logs so, you don't have to be in the application that much. The updating of the application is also very easy to do. They have written this well so that the end-user is able to run the update and let it just do its things. Would I move to another application to do the same thing? At this moment in time no... It is a good price compared to other vendors and it does the job very well. If you have to keep fixing or need to keep an eye on a monitoring application then the overall cost is then too big. The idea of these monitoring tools is to set them up get the logs all set up then just leave them to do the job so you can just get on with other items that do require your time. In a business Time is Money that includes engineer time.

PROS

The application interface is very nice and plenty of graphs to look at. You can also create your own reports to then show just the areas you want to see. The application gathers a lot of information more than you may ever need to see in one report so, being able to break these down into manageable reports makes it better to understand what you are looking at and not just a lot of noise.

CONS

The application can be a bit complicated to start with when setting it up. It will expect you to have all the required information about your firewalls such as SNMP, Admin Firewall access and also IP addresses. Getting to know where everything is within the application can be a bit frustrating too as there are so many areas the application checks and logs. Once you know your way around the application then it is fine and works well.

Reason for choosing ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer

We currently use a number of applications from ManageEngine. We use the following Servicedesk Plus ( Cloud ) Patch Management ADService Plus ADManager Plus ADAudit

ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer - 3 months in

Firewall Analyzer is able to provide us with the real-time alerting that we required for firewall changes as well as reporting that we can use for our quarterly reviews.

PROS

We are primarily using ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer to monitor our firewalls for Change Management. The software offers flexible features on alerting and reporting that we have not been able to find elsewhere. We had several questions during the trial shortly after purchase, and the support team addressed all of them very quickly, including one that required a hotfix.

CONS

Since this product stores firewall log files, it requires space - a lot of space. We have resized our server a couple of times since installing the demo to be able to accommodate the number of log files that we would like to store.

Reasons for switching to ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer

We tried to use Nipper for 3 years and was never successful at producing usable reports for Change Management. In addition, it does not provide log storage for reporting over time.
