Azure Firewall Review

Stable and scalable with outstanding technical support

What is our primary use case?

On-premise to cloud <-> Cloud to on-premise

How has it helped my organization?

Managed service.

What is most valuable?

Scalability, multi-zone and FQDN TAgs.

What needs improvement?

In a future release, it could be empowered by combining with Azure Private DNS and Front Door.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for 1 year

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable. When comparing it to other environments, it's actually quite impressive.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

We deal with technical support on a regular basis. I'd rate the service we've received ten out of most of the support tickets. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use several solutions.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Unfortunately, I don't handle the finances or payments for the solution, so I can't compare to others.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

FortiGate - also nice solution...

What other advice do I have?

We've used both the on-premises as well as the cloud deployment models. We also occasionally use a hybrid model. During migrations, we use hybrids. Once the migration is done, we move onto the full cloud and pass if over to private cloud or have public access as necessary.

The Azure firewall is prioritized as it is managed solution and does not require any infrastructure base (backbone) hardware support.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Microsoft Azure
