Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I like all of the features, but the main one is the attack signatures.""Feature-wise, they are always cutting edge and up-to-date. Many features aren't available via competitors. There's always a lot of enhanced critical features that just aren't available through anyone else, or, if they are, are too lightweight.""It is also quite intuitive and user-friendly. They have several webinars that are actually like labs. You can use these webinars to learn about how to use all features of the product.""The web application firewall itself is most valuable. It provides positive security and negative security. In negative security, it blocks a task such as cross-site scripting, code injection, etc. In positive security, it lets you specify and enforce things, such as the parameters allowed in username and password fields and the number of characters allowed in a field.""The valuable features vary from customers to customers. Some customers are okay with the basic features of the WAF, and some customers use advanced WAF with a few other features.""The most valuable features of this solution are the WAF protection, Data Safe, and the seven-layer DDoS.""One of the most valuable features is the Local Traffic Manager.""Very easy to implement and works well."

Cons
"The reporting could be clearer and embedded to include our movement data.""The contextual-based component needs a lot of help to catch up with the next-gen products.""I would say their graphical interface, the GUI. I don't like the GUI as much as before.""We usually use a third-party tool for logging and reporting. It would be nice if we could do that right on this solution. They have one, but it's not very stable. Logging and reporting effectively would be a big enhancement.""I would like to see a better interface and better documentation compatibility with other products. It's more complicated with OWASP.""Compatibility with multiple cloud environments needs improvement. Both stability and scalability need to be improved.""The Sandbox integration feature could be improved.""The BIG-IQ is supposed to centralize the management for all of the boxes but it's not very effective."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's more expensive than other solutions and depending on the modules, there can be additional fees."
  • "F5 bundles up services and the bundle is what you pay for rather than individual components."
  • "Its price is fair. We have done a couple of deals where they were able to give some kind of discount to the customers. The price was initially high for the customers, but after a couple of negotiations, it came within their budget. They were happy with that."
  • "There are various plans available for Fortinet FortiWeb Cloud WAF as a Service, including a trial version."
  • "It is expensive. Its price should be better. Its licensing is on a yearly basis. Its licensing is also based on the model. There are no additional costs."
  • "I don't have any issue with the pricing of this solution."
  • "There is an annual subscription for this solution."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable when compared with other products, such as FortiWeb. I am very satisfied with the price."
