Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most important feature of this solution is protection from attack.""The solution has a good sandbox feature.""The most valuable feature of Fortinet FortiWeb is the reports and the AI-based features.""We find that it is quite stable and reliable.""It helps us prevent attacks on servers.""One of the big advantages of using Fortinet FortiWeb is all the Fortinet family solutions use the same user interface and logic. This makes it easy to use, configure, manage, and understand if you have used one of their solutions before or are wanting to implement other Fortinet solutions in the future. Additionally, all Fortinet solutions can be managed with one application called FortiManager.""Fortinet is a great SD-WAN player when it comes to security capabilities.""The support services, performance, and pricing are all valuable features. The performance is excellent."

More Fortinet FortiWeb Pros →

"A user-friendly and reasonably priced solution.""The device blocks threats and allows legitimate users to work correctly.""The product offers high availability."

More Radware AppWall Pros →

Cons
"The documentation for the machine learning could be better.""When we look at the incident reports in the dashboard, they are available for a maximum duration of 24 hours. They should provide more time for the analysis and increase the duration of the availability of these reports. Currently, it gives the options for 5 minutes, 1 hour, and 24 hours. It would be excellent if there are more options for a longer time period. It may be configurable, but I don't know how to do it.""No solution is 100% secure and the security could always be worked on.""Sometimes, even if you follow the documentation, it doesn't work as expected.""The memory use in each of the appliances is problematic.""In my experience, Fortinet FortiWeb could improve the intelligent features to acknowledge whether any threat or incident that's running happened. Then give us the ability to escalate it to layer 2 or layer 3 in the network operations.""The solution could offer more integration opportunities.""The automation piece can be improved. Although they say it can be automated very well, there is still manual work. Its usability should be improved in terms of automation because we want to build an infrastructure with code, but you can't do that easily with this solution. If they can give us APIs in the firewalls that we can tap into, it would be perfect."

More Fortinet FortiWeb Cons →

"Scalability should be based on customer requirements.""The user interface can be improved.""You need to have pretty good internal knowledge of the solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price is competitive."
  • "We are on an annual license for this solution and the price is approximately €100."
  • "It keeps changing, but it's based on the size of the VM you buy and also the traffic throughput you want from it, whereas what we have on Azure is just the traffic throughput. You can also pay on a monthly basis from Azure. During each part of the project, it's okay to get Azure-based licensing or AWS-based licensing for FortiWeb, but over time, you would want to go with the perpetual license. You should go to Fortinet and buy the license from them. So, there is a two-step process there."
  • "The price of Fortinet FortiWeb is reasonable. This is one of the key factors of why we use this solution."
  • "There's only one payment for the duration of the license. On a scale from one to five, I would rate pricing at four. I have not encountered any additional costs on my projects involving Fortinet FortiWeb."
  • "The maintenance fee for this product could be improved."
  • "It should be somewhere about 36,000 Euros. That's the cost for three years. It's moderately priced."
  • "The price of Fortinet FortiWeb depends from customer to customer because some customers are considering using other solutions, such as Imperva. The price of Fortinet FortiWeb sits well for the middle-sized customers that we deal with."
