FortiGate-VM Review
All unauthorized traffic is filtered out


Improvements to My Organization

The improvement was felt in the traffic use. Without the firewall, there is unauthorized traffic coming in from the Internet. We can’t be sure whether it is legit traffic or something malicious. With this solution, all unauthorized traffic is filtered out.

Valuable Features

The most valuable features are the firewall and security. They filter out unwanted connections.

Room for Improvement

We are using a product from eight years ago. I am sure there have been improvements in the newer versions. Improvements on the following are needed:

  1. Responsive UI
  2. JIT and detailed traffic reporting.

Use of Solution

More than five years.

Stability Issues

There are no stability issues.

Scalability Issues

We did scaled up quite well. We moved our locations from 10 to 20 people accessing it to 100s of people. It could handle the traffic load well enough.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I have not requested tech support (all these years).

Previous Solutions

No.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was quite straightforward, as we can simply head to the required sections to apply the planned network.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

I have yet to research a hardware replacement. If anything, I am the one that needs some advice!

Other Solutions Considered

I can't remember.

Other Advice

This product surely will fit your basic needs at the very least. However, always match up the specifications of the products you will buy to your current and future needs.
