Azure Firewall Pros review quotes

I think that one of the best features is definitely the premium version, along with the IDPs in terms of the intrusion detection and prevention system.

Network filtering is valuable. The scalability capability from the cloud-native service helps us a lot because it simplifies our day-to-day maintenance activity.

It's auto-scalable, which is a great feature.

One of the best features is that it natively integrates with Azure Services and tools. When you have a third-party offering, that is not the case. But Azure Firewall provides a comprehensive and seamless security solution for your Azure resources.

It is easy for me to protect certain ports or even the IP addresses, as well as do whitelisting, blacklisting, and the FQDN when we want virtual machines connected and to protect certain websites.

The most valuable feature is the integration into the overall cloud platform.

It provided ease of maintenance. If a new firewall was needed, we only had to run the pipelines for this. So, the maintenance was very easy.

The firewall policy control, URL content control, and antivirus are all the most valuable aspects. Threat prevention is as well quite good.

In terms of the reporting, it's beautiful. It integrates with Azure monitoring and with Azure policies. That piece is a big help. You can set governing policies and you can use the application firewall, as well as the Azure Firewall, to enforce those policies.

For larger enterprises, they need to adjust the scalability.

It is a cloud service, but the lending speed for each region is not always the same. For example, in China, the speed is slow. They need to think about how to make sure that the service pace or speed is always the same in all regions. It would be a great improvement if they can provide the same pace worldwide.

It would be much easier if the on-premises, firewall rules, had some kind of export-import possibility in place, which is not the case right now.

Azure has new versions including a premium firewall. But I would like to see them not put the premium features on Azure Firewall Premium alone because it is quite expensive.

For large organizations, a third-party firewall would be an added advantage, because it would have more advanced features, things that are not in Azure Firewall.

Azure Firewall definitely needs a broader feature base. It should be able to go all the way up to layer 7 when looking at applications and things like that.

Currently, it only supports IP addresses, so you have to be specific about the IPs that are in your environment.

There should be better monitoring and logging. Currently, it is put in Sentinel. It should be more seamless and from the interface.

The development area and QA area could be improved. With those improvements, we can improve projects and take even less time to implement them.

It needs a lot of improvement, especially on intruder detection. They are working hard on that.
