I particularly appreciate its load-balancing capabilities as it allows us to manage multiple instances and support a global presence effectively.

The most valuable feature is that you can implement resources globally. It does not depend on location and ability or something like that. This is to connect clients around the world.

You can assign as many web application firewall policies as you want to the same instance of Front Door.

The price is one of the most important aspects of the product. It's quite affordable.

It inspects the traffic at the network level before it comes into Azure. We can do SSL offloading, and it can detect abnormalities before the traffic comes into the application. It can be used globally and is easy to set up. It is also quite stable and scalable.

My suggestion for improvement would be to enhance the Data Export feature to include specific tables, particularly the Azure Diagnostics table.

The user interface needs improvement as it is difficult to create the mapping to link the problem with your private address sources.

I'm responsible for the governance and cost control of Azure. I'm not a specialist in any products and therefore I couldn't really speak effectively to features that are lacking or missing.

This is a relatively expensive solution.

We should be able to use Front Door defenders with multiple cloud vendors. Currently, they can be used only with the Azure cloud. Azure Front Door should also be able to do global load balancing and provide internal front door services. Microsoft should clearly define what Traffic Manager, Application Gateway, and Azure Front Door products do. These are similar products, and people get confused between these products.

The product's features are limited compared to Cloudflare. The tool also doesn't work well in a hybrid environment. I would like to see a way to add personalized APIs in the system.

The product needs to improve its latency.
