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.

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.

Other than the additional security with exploit protection, we have simpler certificate handling, as we can keep internal servers using internal certificates continuously distributed and updated by Active Directory Group Policy, while the public certificates become updated only in a single place, FortiWeb itself.
SSL Offloading simplifies the public certificate handling and brings additional protection features.
L-7 protection makes possible to protect legacy/not up-to-date servers/applications without changing the application code.

FortiWeb offers machine learning in the latest product. This fixed many problems. There are no false negatives.

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.

High-performance and detection engines, provide a high rate of exposure of web attacks.
FortiWeb is easy to operate with a reasonably high level of protection. FortiWeb provides multiple deployment options with a physical or virtual (FortiWeb-VM) appliance, and acts either as a reverse/transparent proxy or out-of-band. It is also available on AWS and Azure.

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.).

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 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.

Centralized management of multiple devices, and GUI improvement, could reduce the learning curve.
The interface could have the interdependent elements arranged sequentially and wizards that go through most common deployment actions.
Centralized configuration using FortiManager – like what exists for NGFW FortiGate appliances - would improve the configuration.

Fortinet FortiWeb is not scalable. You'll need more budget to change the hardware.

The false positives are annoying.​
I had some small problems when I was upgrading firmware. After the upgrade, some of my certificates were deleted.​

Integration and learning about attacks. I would improve these areas by making FortiWeb integrate with other network technologies and feedback from multiple platforms.

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.
