How do you asses if Azure firewall is sufficient for your enterprise needs or if you should procure a 3rd party solution?

Hi, Azure Firewall provides inbound protection for non-HTTP/S protocols (for example, RDP, SSH, FTP), outbound network-level protection for all ports and protocols, and application-level protection for outbound HTTP/S. If you want to implement inbound protection of your web applications from common exploits and vulnerabilities, then you can introduce Web Application Firewall (WAF).

@Anushka1100 WAF is still part of the Azure built-in firewall.

 

What I was asking is when should an enterprise engage a 3rd party like Check Point, Palo Alto , CISCO ASA, Fortinet etc for firewall services?
