FortiGate is a stable product.
It is a good product. We have just blocked everything coming from some geographical locations or certain countries, and it has been working very efficiently when I look at logs, events, and incidents generated from the system. It is generating very good analytic reports about it. This is the most valuable thing about this solution. It has load balancing and almost everything that a web application firewall needs. It is very flexible and easy to learn and configure. It can be easily learned and configured by using the information available on different channels such as YouTube.
The most valuable features are the geo-restriction denials and the web ACL.
The access instruction feature is the most valuable. This is what we use the most.
Some of the key features of this solution are the low-level maintenance required, floating proxy service, and load balancing.
The solution is easy to set up.
The solution is very good at intercepting traffic before it gets to our data centers.
Its unique interface for managing security performance and ease of use are the most valuable features of this solution.
The valuable features vary from customers to customers. Some customers are okay with the basic features of the WAF, and some customers use advanced WAF with a few other features.
The solution has been quite stable. It's reliable.
We use Barracuda to protect the application. That's the main feature we use it for.
This is one of the best web application firewalls in the world and it provides our customers with very good protection.
Its inline transferring mode is the most valuable because it is 100% transparent. When you change the IP, there is no change on the network side. If you can't and want to try to reach an IP, you can reach the server IP. There are many other advanced security features in it. The smallest appliances of Imperva can handle the highest traffic at a customer site. For example, a smaller appliance from Imperva can provide you the same security as an F5 product.
Provides mobile app security.
I very much like the elastic search and reports, allowing us to have a 360-degree view of the customer's activities and enabling us to track down any suspicious bots.

There are so many products in the market today. Who are we going to be talking about 3-5 years from now?

It seems that there is some overlap between these two types of solutions - how do Bot Managers and WAF differ? How can they work together to improve security?
