Can a cloud-based firewall replace a traditional firewall?

Does a cloud-based firewall really replace a traditional firewall, or is it better to think of it as a complimentary level of security?

I'd consider it more of a complimentary thing, and then use a hybrid with both. It can't hurt to have a bit more added protection.

It can be either. A cloud based (aka network-based) firewall performs the same tasks as a “traditional” firewall. However, if you prefer you can implement a hybrid system.
