FortiWeb

Fortiweb is well suited to protect web applications whether hosted on the cloud or on-premise. It is easy to implement in a VM or physical hardware equipment. Load balancing works really well. It is not so great when troubleshooting problems

StackPath

Well suited to:
  1. Startups - Very competitive pricing, better than AWS for object storage and CDN.
  2. The less technical - for those looking to implement a CDN, it doesn't get any easier than StackPath
  3. The more technical - Well documented API, serverless scripting and container deployments
  4. Fast object delivery - StackPath tends to be faster (sometimes much more ) than AWS S3. See below however...
Not so well suited to:
  1. Multi-tiered web applications
  2. Ultra high bandwidth requirements. Stackpath isn't meant to be a substitute for AWS or Azure when you're looking to push 100s of TBs of traffic.
  3. Object storage works well if you don't need fine-grained bucket lifecycle or permissions management.

Alternatives Considered

FortiWeb

Most of them have the same features but not for FREE. The second point was the total cost of ownership for 3 and 5 years. Fortinet supported us with the best prices for 3 years and 5 years as well with advanced hardware replacement against the others.

StackPath

Better CDN pricing than Amazon CloudFront and Fastly. We knew Akamai was expensive but it is the best when it comes to content and application delivery. For CDN and Object Storage, it is easier to setup and manage than AWS. Fastly offers different services than StackPath and their CDN bandwidth charges were nearly 60% higher than StackPath when we first signed up - that may have changed since we first signed up however.
