Easy to implement and affordable with a fast deployment

What is our primary use case?

We tend to use every aspect of the product. We use Azure Front Door, the Web Application Firewall on Front Door, and the Application Gateway. We implement all of these solutions for our customers. It depends on the need of our customers. The solution supports a lot of data publishing work.

Pros and Cons

  • "The price is one of the most important aspects of the product. It's quite affordable."
  • "I'm responsible for the governance and cost control of Azure. I'm not a specialist in any products and therefore I couldn't really speak effectively to features that are lacking or missing."

What other advice do I have?

We are a Microsoft partner. We implement a lot of products from Microsoft for our customers. We're a partner specializing in Azure and therefore we implement many features that Azure has. We implement Azure Front Door and Microsoft Azure Application Gateway. Usually, Azure is a public cloud. We deploy only Azure. We don't deploy anything on-prem and so we deploy AWS specifically only in the Azure cloud. A lot of our clients these days are moving over to the cloud, and we are assisting with that process. I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten.

It inspects the traffic at the network level and is stable, scalable, and easy to set up

What is our primary use case?

We use it for external security filtering to protect our external traffic that is coming into Azure.

Pros and Cons

  • "It inspects the traffic at the network level before it comes into Azure. We can do SSL offloading, and it can detect abnormalities before the traffic comes into the application. It can be used globally and is easy to set up. It is also quite stable and scalable."
  • "We should be able to use Front Door defenders with multiple cloud vendors. Currently, they can be used only with the Azure cloud. Azure Front Door should also be able to do global load balancing and provide internal front door services. Microsoft should clearly define what Traffic Manager, Application Gateway, and Azure Front Door products do. These are similar products, and people get confused between these products."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Azure Front Door an eight out of ten.
