Azure Firewall Review

Enables us to secure the entry point to the virtual data center with the firewall but it is costly

What is our primary use case?

I design the architecture and it's an extension of the on-premise that we house on the cloud. We secure the entry point to the virtual data center with the firewall.

What needs improvement?

There are a number of things that need to be simplified, but it's mostly costs. It needs to be simplified because it's pretty expensive.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Azure Firewall for two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

To date, I haven't had any issue and I didn't have a requirement to scale, at this stage.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. We define the setup on templates, we haven't had any specific issues.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a six out of ten. It's good enough but it's not as good as other virtual appliances. It's good enough. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
