I'm researching firewalls. Could anyone recommend an NGFW solution that is compatible with Azure?

Check Point CloudGuard Network Security is compatible with Azure, integrated with Azure Sentinel and provides scalable remote access using Azure VMSS. You can deploy a 30-day free trial via the Azure Marketplace - see here: https://azuremarketplace.micro...

You must be told that performance and handling capacity is of outmost importance. Fortinet ASIC dedicated chips can handle traffic in hardware like no other can. Sophos is a turtle and some Cisco product as well. Once IPS, web protection and other features are added, CPU is a drama in many of them. I insist, Fortinet is the product.

   "NG Firewall", why it should be in a cloud solution mode ? i would rather suggest a local solution;

1) Hardware it's gonna be your´s
2) anyway you will need an IT guy for manage a Firewall, at lease if you dont already have one or maybe you are the IT guy and prefer to doit your self
3) thers a bunch of free software NGFW (Try OPN Sense)
4) all brandded Firewalls has good solution in local mode (Try Sophos UTM 9)
5) and more important you dont need to pay montly for hosting
6) what is the budget ?


   So be carefull , payments problems = " No solution ",  simple as that , in any minute you can lost all what you think is yours (but is not) all is in the hosting, try to reed the contract carefully

@Luis Apodaca  If the customer has servers at Azure and can be accessed by the internet, he needs a firewall there, VM environment. I always recommend an appliance, except when the service is in the cloud

@João Garcia totally agree !,, but from very beginning why take all the infrastructure to cloud ?, same issue !! if the customer already has the infrastructure on cloud , it's ok, should keep it in cloud, just for now !
