Fortinet FortiWeb Review

User-friendly and makes it easy to find vulnerabilities


What is our primary use case?

We are using FortiWeb for publishing web services and some web applications.

What is most valuable?

The interface makes it easy to identify vulnerabilities.

The best features for us are the signature services. The devices uses signatures for identifying vulnerabilities in web applications.

This product is very user-friendly.

The security is very good.

What needs improvement?

FortiWeb needs to have support for the newest technology being used in web applications. For example, some companies have developed new features using the latest technology, but we are still waiting for Fortinet to support them.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using FortiWeb for between four and five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very good and we're fortunate that we haven't had any issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have had no issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

We are in Iran and working under sanctions, which means that we cannot buy new American products and cannot get support. Companies usually buy devices that are second hand, or from a third-party, neither of which have support.

That said, my impression is that the support is good for companies who are eligible to use it.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not complex. Like all Fortinet devices, it is user-friendly.

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

Due to the situation in Iran with the sanctions, the price of this solution is very expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The only other two web application firewall products that are available in my country are F5 and Imperva.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product and I strongly recommend it, especially for companies in the banking industry.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
