Enables us to monitor the most critical DBA activities, helping identify default accounts and passwords
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"When we had Cisco we had around thirty thousand entries on our firewalls. Now we are down to three thousand. Fortinet has a mechanism to detect all of your entries which are not used, and it can clean it up."
"All the features that FortiGate contains are very suitable for our business. We work with other products in Fortinet, FortiWeb, FortiSandbox, FortiMail, and FortiCache. We use all UTM features like self-encryption, encryption, all UTM features."
"What we like about Fortinet FortiWeb is it has all the features. We use all of them, so we have to turn on all the options."
"The most valuable feature in this solution is the ability to disseminate between the user entering some wrong value to the field, and a suspicious actor trying to exploit some known vulnerability."
"It's the extra security that is the most valuable feature. You have insight into your traffic. There are some great insights into what utilities hackers are trying to exploit. It blocks a lot of stuff from the internet."
"FortiWeb offers machine learning in the latest product. This fixed many problems. There are no false negatives."
"The most valuable features are support and security."
"The GUI is user-friendly and it's easy to understand how to manage it."
"The tool happens to be very intelligent when it comes to processing policies and sounding alerts. It allows us to implement policies and measure actions against them, raising alerts accordingly."
"It has a lot of different components that cover the needs of our customers."
"The functionality is very useable and easy to understand."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the database security policy."
"This solution has helped secure our Internet-based services, protecting us against DoS and other types of web-based attacks."
"A solution which does what other name brand products do for a lower cost."
"Flexible reporting allows for customization that keeps the admins from having to interact with system automation."
"The most valuable feature is the Data Masking."
"I would like to have an antivirus option."
"New releases and old releases have some bugs, some features do not work as good as we want but every new release the Fortinet team fixes up problems."
"Fortinet FortiWeb needs to improve the way it's configured. Common services like publishing exchange should be done in one click only."
"We would like to know more about the integration with the hardware or security products, such as Gemalto, because we need to move to that point."
"The solution is rather complicated. If you know what to do, it's not bad, but it's complicated for a first time user to configure the solution. What I'd like to improve are the custom signatures."
"Fortinet FortiWeb is not scalable. You'll need more budget to change the hardware."
"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."
"The only challenge I see is that SecureSphere is deployed on servers or databases which are held on physical infrastructure. However, there are databases which are hosted on cloud platforms and Imperva has a separate tool altogether for that, not SecureSphere."
"Integration with other databases or third-party products would be useful."
"It would be better to update the solution by using a GUI that guides me, rather than through a CLI."
"Technical support for this solution needs improvement."
"The GUI for this solution could use some improvement."
"The interface is not user-friendly."
"Performance can be slow under heavy loads, but this should be adjusted by scaling."
"The firewall features are not very strong and should be improved."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"The license cost depends on the size of the box or the size of the solution. It can go from €200 Euros to a few hundred thousand Euros a year depending on your size."
"The solution gives us the best price to performance ratio."
"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."
"The cost of support for this solution is very expensive."
"Licensing fees are on a yearly basis, and it is a good value for the money."
"There is an annual licensing fee for upgrading the device."
"Pricing is low and scalable to add features and volume."
"The pricing over-all depends on the entry level. For example, if support and maintenance are about $20,000 - $25,000, the initial cost can be five times more. It is less expensive for the company to maintain the client than to make the deployment."
"We have all the licenses, which we pay for annually. The price is a little high, but the product is good."
"They have introduced new price models, which makes the product more affordable now."
"The price is very high but compared to the price of the overall solution, then I think it's a good deal because the solution itself is great."
