Fortinet FortiWeb Valuable Features

System Engineer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees

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. This part of the intelligence and behavioral analysis makes it very easy to tell if the user just used a few wrong characters in the field or not. It also checks to see if different characters are being entered very quickly, and can tell whether the user is actually typing something.

Another feature is the possibility to balance the traffic and there's lots of integration with your sandbox.

For me personally, the most valuable thing is that I like the fact that it is standardized so both internal firewall management and the cloud can be managed by the same company. Communication between the two works well and it can be a benefit. We can keep a single console to manage both.

Cyber Security Division Manager at 3SC Security Solutions Services and Consultant

The most valuable feature is that this product represents a whole solution, including a WAF, and even anti-defacements. It is not just a single feature.

Anti-defacement has an amazing feature whereby if something bypasses the WAF then they can rollback the website.

The user experience is very good and it is simple to use.

They have AI and machine learning capabilities, so if you are using the WAF then you don't need extra features.

We have been using all the features and everything is nice. 

I have recently been looking at the SSL certificate features and the learning mode of the appliance. This appliance learns from the pattern of SSL attacks.

It is a good product. We have just blocked everything coming from some geographical locations or certain countries, and it has been working very efficiently when I look at logs, events, and incidents generated from the system. It is generating very good analytic reports about it. This is the most valuable thing about this solution. 

It has load balancing and almost everything that a web application firewall needs. It is very flexible and easy to learn and configure. It can be easily learned and configured by using the information available on different channels such as YouTube.

Senior Information Security Consultant at Future Telecom

The customers are very happy with this solution because of two things. First, the IPS integration with a web application is very tightly done on Fortinet. Second, the ease of use is there. The management interface or the GUI interface is very easy to use, configure, and manage. These are the two main valuable features.

It supports integration with other Fortinet products. It also integrates very well with the firewall and sandboxing technology. They already have enough integration with different technologies. They have got a complete tech intelligence view of the whole product.

The most valuable feature is ease of use.

It has an all-in-one license, unlike F5 where you need separate licenses for the antivirus, IP reputation, denial of service attacks, etc. With FortiWeb, the all-in-one license is one of the most beneficial features.
