"The solution is very easy to use.""The sandboxing feature is very important.""It's easy to use and the fact that I can schedule the report to come to my inbox at set times is very convenient for me.""The solution is quite stable. I haven't had issues with it crashing on me. I don't recall running into any bugs or glitches. It's very reliable so far.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the stability, it's actually tailored for that.""It's quite easy to use, and it's easy to find the necessary information from the web.""The functionality of the solution is excellent.""The ability to manage everything from the cloud is going to be the most valuable by far with this solution."

Cons
"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."

"There are European and US clouds and sometimes we mix them up. The solution should make determining the clouds more clear, or make one cloud instead of having separate ones.""I would like to see a SIEM bundled together with this because customers are looking into better reporting and more proactive security solutions.""The solution should allow users to keep the data for longer than the current periods. I can't get any historic data after more than a month. I would like to be able to, after a year, look for trends from the past 12 months. It would make things much easier.""When it comes to technical support, the problem we have found is that if an issue comes, it takes a day to get everything resolved. It could be faster. They can be better at optimizing how they answer tickets in terms of response times. There must be ways to make the process more streamlined. It would make it easier for their clients.""Reporting is an area that can be enhanced.""We need some integration or communication between the endpoint and the firewall.""The command-line interface could definitely be improved in future iterations. It's lacking right now.""Currently with the solution, if you want to manage more than one FortiGate you have to use a VM, and a VM can control up to 10."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The solution is certainly expensive in comparison with other cloud services."

More Azure Firewall Manager Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price is over $1,000 USD annually.""The pricing is mid-ranged, it's not very expensive but it's not the cheapest or most affordable in the market.""The license does not include many of the features that are necessary, which means that you have to pay extra for them.""It is expensive.""The price of the solution is high compare to competitors.""As with us, our customers need not pay for a license. One brings one's own.""When comparing this solution to others it is less expensive and there is an annual license required.""The pricing is competitive."
