Transcript

In this course, you learned about AWS Network Firewall. What it is. Features when deploying the AWS network firewall. We compared the difference between security groups for instances versus network access control lists to protect VPCs versus the use of AWS network firewall.

From there, we talked about the different deployment models that included, distributed, centralized, and a combination of both distributed and centralized.

We summarized and compared all three deployment models and talked about some of the considerations. The last thing we touched on was the AWS firewall manager, and how can it be centrally managed, all the rules and policies for AWS network firewall using any of the three deployment models mentioned above.
