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."

"The solution has a very good interface.""It is an effective threat mitigation tool.""The technical support is excellent.""The most valuable features for us are the DDoS and Bot.""The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is easy to configure.""It blocks all types of attacks.""There is no need to have an appliance in house for the services because it is on the cloud.""Its unique interface for managing security performance and ease of use are the most valuable features of this solution."

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 »

"The rules surrounding the making of web applications could be improved.""Imperva should have more points of presence in Africa.""I would like to have support for SSL management and secure DNS.""The log analytics interface within Incapsula isn't really good. For example, if you have to get all logs from there, it's a very cumbersome process.""It's quite expensive.""Certificate management could be improved.""The product could use a broader scope in the area of policies.""The weakest point of Imperva is their first level of support, which should be improved. They should also improve the access and security logs viewing directly on the portal. I would like to see better access and security logs through the portal and not only through a SIM solution. Currently, if you want to explore your access and security logs from Imperva, you need a SIM tool or a SIM infrastructure on your side to do it. You can't do it manually or directly through the portal, which is a big problem for us. I had a call yesterday with Imperva for the roadmap, and I just told them this. They agreed that this is an improvement point from their side."

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

More Azure Front Door Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The cost is on par with other solutions such as Cloudflare and Akamai.""It is not expensive compared to the other similar solutions in this category.""It is a very expensive solution. The price is very high. A lot of customers tell us that they would love to use Imperva more. I have some customers who have 50 websites, but they have only 10 websites on Imperva because of the price. They would love to have all their websites running through Imperva, but they can't. They have to choose the more critical websites to protect because the price is very high. It is a very good product, but it is too expensive. If you buy a plan for 20 megabytes and you don't consume all of your 20 megabytes, it is okay, but if you consume more, you are charged for the superior traffic.""The cost is somewhere around $10,000 a site. For every site, you pay individually. For every DNS entry, you have you pay.""It is expensive."
