Pros
"This solution is the best option for us because we use a lot of Microsoft products. So, it is easy for us to deploy or integrate any features or products.""The most important feature is that the solution continuously monitors traffic by inbuilt rules to identify preconfigured attacks.""Azure DDoS Protection offers superior protection against denial-of-service attacks.""DDoS Protection is simple to deploy and integrates seamlessly with the Azure environment. Ease of deployment is a crucial feature for us.""The most valuable feature of Azure DDoS Protection is that it performs well.""I like the user interface, documentation, and support. Azure DDoS Protection is one of the most valuable solutions for any endpoint that is publicly reachable through the internet. It will automatically secure all your endpoints from third-party attacks, cyber attacks, or phishing attacks."

Cons
"The visibility could be better. We would like to have better metrics, so we could see all the information in a central place.""Sometimes, it is hard for our staff to keep track of changes (in the GUI) between different projects, because there are constant changes. As a result, it is hard to manage, recall, and see all the features because they have been moved from one place to another.""The UI needs to be improved.""The reporting aspect and dashboard management monitoring need improvement.""Azure DDoS Protection could improve on the reporting.""The implementation of Azure DDoS Protection results in a decrease in our bandwidth capacity and should be optimized to reduce resource consumption."

More Azure DDoS Protection Cons →

"There should be a simple one-click deployment for a firewall, rather than a set of setup instructions that include steps such as the DNS configuration, et cetera.""The solution can improve the integration with open-source tools.""The price is okay. This said, the solution is certainly expensive in comparison with other cloud services.""We could do only one-way NAT-ing, where the traffic comes from outside to internal, to Azure, which is fine. However, when we actually do NAT-ed traffic to hit the firewall, that way is not working.""The tool's security features need to improve. It needs also to include a monitoring system for logs. It is also complicated to find a query on the Azure firewall."

  • "The pricing is quite high. It is a monthly subscription that costs about $2,000 per month, depending on the user sizes."
  • "The pricing is good but is not the best. It could be improved so that middle-sized organizations, such as startups, can benefit from it."
