Azure Firewall

Azure Firewall is well suited for most mid sized and large sized companies that deal with thousands of users within multiple environments. Azure Firewall allows you to protect business assets by preventing malicious attacks from entering the network. Azure Firewall would be less suited for a small company that does not use a vpn or have users outside of the office as something smaller would be more appropriate.

Honestly we didn't get the premium support from them, but our partner has been supportive. Online forums are also a good place to learn things from.

It is to very little surprise that we selected Sophos UTM at our first use. Then, we upgraded to XG Firewall and the operation is very smoothly done.
