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.

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.).

Also, if you serve files or you accept files with your server, Fortiweb has built-in antivirus. The Fortinet product family also provides good IP intelligence (botnet C&C, etc.).
Built-in security templates, AV integrated, strong threat intelligence.

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.

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.
