Azure is good, however, the Fortinet GUI is more intuitive and I like it more than anything else.

I don't find it that appealing. It's not the most friendly or straightforward to set up. For me, it's not that appealing that I want to go ahead and set it up each time. I don't see the value versus the way you have to set it up at first. The initial setup and deployment could be improved to be simplified. From my perspective, this is something that should be out of the box, available, and given. I don't see why there is a need to set it up. The experience should be there, the servers or the insights, they should be readily available out of the box, once you start setting up your environment on Azure. The setup is a huge part of what needs to be better, as well as the view, or the graph could be improved. Microsoft has the capability to enrich it and to make it look more granular. I would like to see a graph with simple diagrams and richer information.
