Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
FortiWeb offers machine learning in the latest product. This fixed many problems. There are no false negatives.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Security Fabric integration. This is really a value-added feature as FortiWeb can interact with the rest of the client’s Fortinet pack to provide an intelligent security layer like (FortiSIEM for central log management and correlation, FortiGate, FortiSandbox for malware analysis, etc.).
The most valuable feature is the web application firewall (WAF).
The entire solution is interactive and has a point-and-click user experience, which makes it easy to find items or drill down on information. You don't need specialized skills to use the product.
The most valuable feature is the reporting, which is compliant with international standards.
Rapid7 AppSpider is good at managing different applications. It uses applets and generates reports to cover the PCA/GDPR compliance requirements.
I like the ability the product has to detect vulnerabilities quickly, when it has been released in our environment, then displaying them to us.
Fortinet FortiWeb is not scalable. You'll need more budget to change the hardware.
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.
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.
Fortinet FortiWeb needs to improve the way it's configured. Common services like publishing exchange should be done in one click only.
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.
I would like to have an antivirus option.
FortiWeb does not exist in a cloud-based form. Its only available for deployment as a virtual appliance on AWS and Azure IaaS platforms. Because of the trend to WAF environments, it would be good to have it as a SaaS. Also, FortiWeb would be more competitive if it combined WAF and DDoS protection.
Their support needs improvement.
The solution is too slow. It could take a full day to scan. Competitors are much faster.
This price of this solution is a little bit expensive.
Implementing Rapid7 AppSpider requires scanning and self-identification mechanisms. You can add different types of authentication to each scan.
The product needs to be able to scale for large companies, like ours. We have millions of IP addresses that need to be scanned, and the scalability is not great.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The solution gives us the best price to performance ratio.
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 pricing is reasonable.
It really pays off to buy licences for multiple years.
Keep a loose margin between your actual bandwidth and the product sizing when using hardware appliances. Only virtual machines are upgradable to larger sizes.
Cheaper than others.
FortiWeb can be purchased in VM mode for a lower price and the same features.
