It makes it possible to recognize when a user has entered an incorrect value and when they are really in the presence of a suspicious user, this guarantees that there are no false positives that alert business security, it provides advanced functions to defend applications against known threats and unknown, such protection is for internal and external applications.

Its protection is based on automated learning, so it tends to detect the threat with great precision. If it is integrated with other Fortinet software, it is possible to obtain better protection results since the union guarantees a deeper analysis of vulnerabilities.

In addition to all these characteristics that make it a complete protection software, it has a support team that responds quickly to any inconvenience, which is why having this software is really an advantage.

It has been possible to reduce administration and operational costs, as well as having a high performance at the protection level and this is thanks to the fact that its automated learning facilitates the recognition of threats with high precision, which leaves out false positives and secure applications and free of any threat.

Easy to configure, like the ML and AI auto-learning

Found it straightforward to launch and initialize. The Machine Learning and AI features saved a lot of time by allowing the WAF to "learn" my environment and start protecting it. Haven't had to touch the rules since

Powerful solution for the protection of web applications

  • February 18, 2020

What do you like best?
I like this Fortinet firewall a lot because it is powerful, reliable and fast software with which it is possible to verify and implement an application in real time, its configuration is simple, it has a good performance and it has extremely advanced features that allow us to defend the applications web against known threats and zero day, for this Fortiweb provides a highly personalized protection for each application, being fully automatic which generates the great advantage of saving time and responding more quickly to any threat.

On the other hand, it is a software that is capable of differentiating that vulnerabilities from those presented are causing damage and which are not, so that detections of anomalies that are not harmful are avoided.

But what I like and impresses with this software is that unlike others it is based on automated learning, which makes it easy to determine what a user's normal behavior is, and it is not software that limits their protection due to the place where the application is located.
What do you dislike?
This firewall can be quite complicated to handle if you do not have even a hint of knowledge in this type of software, so if a user knows what to do or how to handle the software he will not have problems, but if he is a user who The first time you are going to configure this type of software it can be quite heavy, so it is best in this case to go to your support team to guide you.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
From Fortiweb we have obtained several advantages one of them is that, a better relationship between price and performance was obtained, because it allows the user to choose a license per year or monthly, in addition to all the features that it has fit very well to the business and have made it possible to protect web applications against exploits and known or unknown threats and it is best that the entire process is carried out in an automated way.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Fortiweb is a software that will guarantee the protection of your web applications, so I recommend its use. At the beginning it can be confusing its interface but as soon as you learn to manage it it will be easy and you can keep your company free of any malignant anomaly, so if you want to have a high performance of this software I suggest you plan all your processes in advance.

Easy to Use, Effective Security

This is pretty straightforward to deploy, and the fact that it can handle the load balancing really simplifies deployment for my relatively small website. Very easy to configure, was performing SSL offloading and hosting my website in a day


Unable to use due to not able to upload lic file

This product is not fully integrated to AWS.. if there is a prolong network down, the product will ask for lic file.. but there is none as it cannot be registered.

AWS and Fortinet, please solve this problem... to make it more marketable?
