Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""The price is one of the most important aspects of the product. It's quite affordable.""You can assign as many web application firewall policies as you want to the same instance of Front Door."

More Azure Front Door Pros »

"The most valuable features are support and security.""The GUI is user-friendly and it's easy to understand how to manage it.""I have recently been looking at the SSL certificate features and the learning mode of the appliance. This appliance learns from the pattern of SSL attacks.""The GUI is user-friendly.""This product is very user-friendly.""It is easy to install and to maintain.""It's stable and works efficiently against OWASP Top 10 attacks.""It is a stable product."

Cons
"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.""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.""There is room for improvement and they're working on it."

More Azure Front Door Cons »

"I would like to see more improvements with respect to threat intelligence.""Describing security rules should be improved. It's tricky to define new feature tools when you want to describe an attack pattern and want to block it.""We would like the interface to be easier to use and more user-friendly. The interface needs to be enhanced.""The integration with other products should be improved.""FortiWeb needs to have support for the newest technology being used in web applications.""In terms of performance, it needs to be more robust.""The Layer 7 DDoS attacks need improvement, it could be better.""Fortinet WAF came out recently, and there is not much feedback about customer experience. For each project, customers ask about the scenarios and references of the customers who have implemented this solution, which we don't have. They need to simplify the customer experience and provide more information so that we can propose Fortinet Fortiweb as a WAF solution to customers and convince them. They need to improve their service and training. We need good training to implement and use it properly and know more about it. We still don't know much about Fortinet WAF. We didn't get any proper training sessions. Other vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto, Check Point, and Barracuda provide such sessions. Whenever we receive a request from a customer for this solution, we just give the price. We don't propose this solution because we don't know much about it. We propose whatever we are familiar with and what is supported."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is on a pay-as-you-go basis."

More Azure Front Door Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The costs are standard. We pay around $1,600 yearly.""All our Fortinet pricing is bundled together for different products, like FortiGate, FortiAnalyzer, and FortiWeb. FortiWeb, by itself, is probably around $2,500 to $3,500.""FortiWeb is more expensive than some competing products.""Due to the situation in Iran with the sanctions, the price of this solution is very expensive.""It's an expensive solution, although there are no additional costs.""It is fine now. We had to earlier negotiate the price.""It is an expensive suite and it is an expensive solution, but it is a manageable one for an enterprise.""Its subscription prices are cheaper, and it is not very expensive. From a price perspective, Fortinet is a very well-known security vendor. Subscriptions are very simple. They have a couple of licenses on an appliance, and that's it. The cost is not that big. One license is 40K, which they give with all the products. Another one includes the subscriptions for threat prevention, IPS, sandboxing, etc, which is more than enough."
