Generally, we are using it to protect our internet-facing web applications. So if there are any security vulnerabilities in our applications, the solution can provide protection.

We are a solution provider and I work in the sales team. We resell the Fortinet brand, including the firewall and other solutions. I have experience with both using and configuration of Fortinet products.

We have been testing FortiWeb in our environment. We have it on virtual machines. We used it to block requests from some geographical locations or certain countries. It is very important for us because many attack attempts, logs, and events were generated from those geographical locations. Our country has some political difficulties in the region with other countries.

We are using this product to protect something similar to an online banking network.

I am more on the design side. The use case depends on what a customer requires in terms of web protection. We mostly use it for reverse proxy and load balancing.

We have deployed a couple of projects for our customers to protect their online e-commerce systems. They have web-based applications for online ordering, for example, for online ordering from a hypermarket. It seems to be a very good solution. We have replaced the existing Barracuda devices of a customer. We deal with the latest version of Fortinet FortiWeb.

Normally I deal with on-premises installations. The firewalls are always on-prem for government departments. In a recent case, I was looking at a cloud solution because it was what the client preferred. So it was the Fortinet rules applied to an AWS solution. I was looking at the architecture around becoming an IRAP (Information Security Registered Assessors Program) certified program and I was looking at the AWS firewalls around how it would be able to comply with the ISM (International Safety Management) standards.

Fortinet FortiWeb is known for its web application firewalls. We are using it for preventing and detecting layer 7 attacks such as SQL injection. We have several web applications in our organization and we use this solution to protect them against attacks.

We use it mostly to secure our web platform for things like Internet banking, email, and SMTP. It is for anything that is external coming into our internal network.

Our primary use case is to protect an integral application against vulnerabilities. It's a WAF. It protects against vulnerabilities. We have run tests against it. We also use it for two-factor authentication before authorizing anybody to access the critical application.

We are partners with Fortinet. We specialize in power customers. We use many products like FortiGate, FortiWeb, FortiAnalyzer, FortiSIEM, and FortiSandbox. All the FortiGate products are new, even the Fortinet switches we are selling to our customers. We also install and configure the network for our customers.

I primarily use this solution for the protection of our applications. We chose Fortinet because you can check an application and deploy it in real time. We use the WAF solution from Fortinet to protect against new exploits discovered. Within Fortinet, there is a way to secure such bugs and exploits in the application we're running.

All of our customers use it because they need a proxy solution. Fortinet provides us the best solution to do this. I don't believe that Check Point or Palo Alto can do what Fortinet does.
