FortiGate-VM Review
High network throughput while providing leading edge network security technology


Improvements to My Organization

High network throughput while providing leading edge network security technology for a competitive price.

Valuable Features

Real-time sandboxing with the FortiGate UTM network.

Room for Improvement

The user interface (UI) and the performance of interface both need improvement.

Use of Solution

More than five years.

Stability Issues

No issues.

Scalability Issues

No issues.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I would rate technical support with a 10 out of 10 (perfect score).

Previous Solutions

Our previous solution simply did not live up to expectations.

Initial Setup

Setup is straightforward. I am certified in the Fortinet line of solutions. Even without this knowledge, it is easy to adjust the product to your requirements.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It is on par with what you receive. It can be expensive upfront. 

It would be nice to have the ability to extend FortiGuard subscriptions at a reasonable yearly cost versus a bulk three year pricing.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluated Cisco, Meraki, SonicWall, and Juniper.

Other Advice

Having support from your vendor is nice. Calling Fortinet directly with a support contract, they will help you take care of all your requirements.
