1 FIREWALL COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) 2013 Thomas Skybakmoen, Francisco Artes, Bob Walder, Ryan Liles Tested s Barracuda F800, Check Point 12600, Cyberoam CR2500iNG, Dell SonicWALL NSA 4500, Fortinet FortiGate- 800c, Juniper SRX550, NETASQ NG1000- A, NETGEAR ProSecure UTM9S, Palo Alto Networks PA- 5020, Sophos UTM 425, Stonesoft FW- 1301, WatchGuard XTM 1050

2 Overview The implementation of firewall solutions can be complex, with multiple factors affecting the overall cost of deployment, maintenance and upkeep. All of these should be considered over the course of the useful life of the solution, including: 1. Acquisition costs for firewall devices and central management system 2. Fees paid to the vendor for annual maintenance and support 3. Labor costs for installation, maintenance and upkeep By using total cost of ownership (TCO) instead of purchase price, it is possible to factor in management of the device via labor costs associated with product installation, maintenance and upkeep. In addition, no two network security products deliver the same security effectiveness or throughput, making apples to apples comparisons extremely difficult. In order to capture the relative value of devices on the market and facilitate such comparisons, NSS Labs has developed a unique metric to enable value- based comparisons: TCO per protected megabit/sec. NSS Labs defines this metric as: Total Cost / (security effectiveness * throughput). Since management capabilities are also critical in the successful deployment of security devices, a second metric is also used that multiplies the security effectiveness score by the score for enterprise management capabilities as tested. Security Effectiveness = Firewall Policy Protection x Stability and Reliability x Evasion x Leakage Weighted Security Effectiveness = Security Effectiveness x Management Capabilities Figure 1 Security Effectiveness Formulae For the purpose of this analysis, NSS Labs developed an enterprise use case with one (1) central management system and ten (10) firewall devices deployed at disparate locations. Since configuration is performed via central management, the device cost reflects initial setup and upkeep per device.

4 Analysis Labor and Equipment Costs Implementation of firewalls can be a complex process with multiple factors affecting the overall cost of deployment, maintenance and upkeep. With the shortage of skilled and experienced practitioners, it is important to consider the required time and resources to properly install and maintain the solution. Failure to do so could result in products not achieving their full security potential. There are two main components to be considered: 1. Installation (capital expenditure/capex) the time required to take the device out of the box, configure it, put it into the network, apply updates and patches, perform initial tuning, and configure desired logging and reporting. 2. Upkeep (operating expenditure/opex) the time required to apply periodic updates and patches from vendors, including hardware, software, and protection (filter/rules) updates. Labor for Central Management Labor costs for central management refer to day- to- day management tasks, including device management, policy configuration and deployment, alert handling, reporting, and so on. In a typical enterprise, administrators will use some form of centralized management system to manage deployed firewall sensors. Without central management, which is only an option with some vendors, it would be necessary to extrapolate these hours (and thus increase costs) by multiplying them by the number of deployed firewall sensors. The variation in installation/setup and upkeep time reflects the efficiency of each management system.

5 Labor for Device Setup and Upkeep This table estimates the annual labor required to maintain each device. Even with a central management system, it is still necessary for administrators to work on the individual physical devices during the course of the year for troubleshooting and remediation purposes. NSS assumptions are based upon the time required by an experienced security engineer ($75 per hour fully loaded), allowing us to hold constant the talent cost, and measure only the difference in time required for installation and upkeep.

Actual costs to end- users may be lower depending on the negotiated discount. However, assuming all vendors will provide similar discounts, the cost ratios will remain constant.

6 Total Cost of Ownership TCO incorporates both CAPEX and OPEX costs over a three- year period. This includes initial acquisition and deployment costs, plus annual maintenance and update costs (software and hardware updates) and all associated labor costs. Upkeep labor includes day- to- day management, patching/updating and troubleshooting. Calculations are as follows: Value Description of Calculation Year One Cost Initial Price + Maintenance + ((Installation + Upkeep) x Labor rate $/hr) Year Two Cost Maintenance + (Upkeep x Labor rate $/hr) Year Three Cost Maintenance + (Upkeep x Labor rate $/hr) Three Year TCO Year One Cost + Year Two Cost + Year Three Cost Calculations are based on a Labor rate of $75 per hour (fully loaded) as well as vendor- provided pricing information. Where possible, the 24/7 maintenance and support option with 24- hour replacement is utilized since this is the option typically selected by enterprise customers. Prices include an enterprise management solution to manage up to ten firewall devices.

The benefit of this analysis is that, within a given performance range, it will provide insight as to whether a product is priced above or below the majority of its competitors. A high price could indicate a premium based upon protection offered, brand recognition, level of customer service, or a price penalty for an underperforming product NSS Labs, Inc.

7 Price (Vendor- Claimed Performance) The most simplistic means of determining value, but frequently misleading, is determining the price per megabit per second based upon the initial purchase price of the product and the performance claims of the vendor.

This calculation is performed in many purchasing departments. Unfortunately, this approach is equally flawed, since it relies on the vendor- claimed performance, without testing, to determine the actual throughput of the device under real- world conditions.

8 Factor In Security Protection Determining value solely upon TCO and throughput is acceptable when dealing with a pure networking device. However, for security devices, protection also needs to be factored into the equation. This table determines the protected price per megabit per second based upon purchase price, vendor- claimed performance, and protection rating (based upon test results).

The following table illustrates the clear difference between measuring TCO with vendor- claimed performance and measuring TCO with protected Mbps (as a security device). Security effectiveness factors in how well the device under test (DUT) resisted evasion attempts, the stability of the DUT, and whether or not the DUT leak attacks under stress. Once again, this is important because we are dealing with in- line security devices, and each of these factors can have a serious impact on security protection or business continuity.

10 In this final step, a weighting is applied to reflect the functional completeness of an enterprise management system (see the Management Comparative Analysis Report for further details of this testing.) The management score is multiplied by the security effectiveness score to produce the final management- weighted security effectiveness score as shown in Figure 14.
