Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

"DHCP is a basic service, and they've been doing it for years, so it's mature and stable.""Infoblox offers granularity and advanced DNS protection to mitigate DNS attacks. It's a very secure solution.""The security of the solution is perfect. It's very good at protecting us from attacks."

Cons
"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."

More Fortinet FortiWeb Cons »

"The solution is expensive.""There needs to be more capabilities in order to configure the console itself instead of the user interface dashboard. Configuring the DNS or DHCP through the console instead of the GUI dashboard would be better.""There should be better alerts for when attacks are happening."

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."

Overview

FortiWeb is a web application firewall (WAF) that protects hosted web applications from attacks that target known and unknown exploits. Using multi-layered and correlated detection methods, FortiWeb defends applications from known vulnerabilities and from zero-day threats.

DNS is one of the fastest growing attack vectors because it’s essential for network connectivity, and current security solutions are not designed to protect it. Distributed denial of service (DDoS) and other external and internal DNS-based threats can flood your DNS server with malicious requests, bringing down your network. These attacks can redirect users to harmful Internet destinations, exfiltrate data, and expose your customers and business to additional risks. Security technologies such as NextGen firewalls, IPS, and generic DDoS solutions do not understand DNS and are unable to prevent specific attacks such as DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijacking, reflection attacks, amplification attacks, and many others.

With Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection, you can comprehensively defend your DNS server from the widest range of DNS-based attacks, while maintaining service availability and business continuity.
