We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The interface is intuitive and it is easy for the users."
"The most valuable feature is the centrally managed rule. I also like the central orchestration."
"Once this solution is set up, we hardly have to touch it."
"The solution has improved our organization with its firewall."
"The solution is very easy to set up."
"It is easy to install and does not require any plugins for your browser."
"The system should be more customizable."
"Enabling and configuring the logging is not that straightforward."
"This solution is suitable for a small-scale enterprise and may not scale up to a very high volume of traffic or a large number of servers."
"The price is okay. This said, the solution is certainly expensive in comparison with other cloud services."
"We could do only one-way NAT-ing, where the traffic comes from outside to internal, to Azure, which is fine. However, when we actually do NAT-ed traffic to hit the firewall, that way is not working."
"There should be a simple one-click deployment for a firewall, rather than a set of setup instructions that include steps such as the DNS configuration, et cetera."
"The AWS Firewall Manager is a little on the costly side."
"The licensing is on a pay-as-you-go basis and we are billed monthly."
"The solution is certainly expensive in comparison with other cloud services."
