What is most valuable?

The bandwidth limitation and restriction feature is most reliable and useful, working as expected and hasn’t had any crash or excessive load issues. Using the interface to set bandwidth limitations and restrictions at the individual IP, group... more»

How has it helped my organization?

This product allows our organization to manage each user’s bandwidth limitation for internet service and overall.

What needs improvement?

The user interface and update/support is not quite user-friendly. Obviously nowadays these are just normal features, but we are looking for QoS, application visibility, web filtering and mostly threat detection/malware protection/IPS for... more»

What is most valuable?

SSL Offloading, as it simplifies the public certificate handling and brings additional protection features. Also, L-7 protection, as it makes possible to protect legacy/not up-to-date servers/applications without changing the application code.

How has it helped my organization?

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... more»

What do you think of Fortinet FortiWeb?

Valuable Features SSL offloading Unlimited number of protected servers Load balancing • Improvements to My Organization If a customer has a web portal that frequently experiences attacks, FortiWeb blocks all negative traffic. • Room for Improvement It would be great if FortiWeb could provide web forms like Microsoft TMG. (For example, OWA Exchange portal or SharePoint portal.) Many of our customers are looking forward to this functionality. • Use of Solution I don’t use it, but as a partner of Fortinet, I implement it at customers’ sites. Our customers have been using it for about two years. • Stability Issues One of our customers recently experienced a stability problem. The customer has two FortiWeb appliances in an HA cluster (A-P). Something happened and both...

What is most valuable?

All of its feature are valuable to us. If you ask me which is the most valuable, it is the load balancing, then I would say the security features. Publishing OWA is also a good feature.

How has it helped my organization?

We were able to protect our web servers from outside attacks. It has really helped us with publishing servers which were published on Microsoft Forefront TMG.

What needs improvement?

We started with FortiWeb400C, then we did an upgrade to FortiWeb 400D. I had some small problems when I was upgrading firmware. After the upgrade, some of my certificates were deleted. The false positives are also annoying.

What is most valuable?

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,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

A customer said to us that before FortiWeb they regularly had to back up their whole website folder to prevent defacement and ransomware. Now, with the FortiWeb Anti-defacement feature, this process is handled more intelligently, as FortiWeb... more»

What needs improvement?

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»

What do you think of Fortinet FortiWeb?

Improvements to My Organization Mitigation of attacks and thefts in an online banking platform. • Valuable Features High-performance and detection engines, because of their high rate of exposure of web attacks. • Room for Improvement Integration and learning about attacks. I would improve these areas by making FortiWeb integrate with other network technologies and feedback from multiple platforms. • Use of Solution One to three years. • Stability Issues No issues with stability. • Scalability Issues The equipment is dimensioned as a function of servers traffic. To scale on the platform it is necessary to acquire superior models. • Customer Service and Technical Support Excellent. • Initial Setup It was simple and functional. • Pricing, Setup Cost...

What is most valuable?

* Built-in security templates * AV integrated * Strong threat intelligence 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.). Requires very little effort to add device to topology or replace existing WAF device with FortiWeb.

How has it helped my organization?

With other vendors you need to go through a learning period. With FortiWeb you can just apply a high-security profile and move on. It's very easy to reduce false positives.
