It is stable.

We previously used Palo Alto. We switched because we are using Fortinet for the whole network. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. The deployment only took a few minutes. 

What about the implementation team?

We first used the reseller for the deployment but then did it ourselves.

We also looked at Meraki and Cisco.

It's a good solution. It works fine. It's the right solution if you use Fortinet. If we didn't have Fortinet, we wouldn't use it. 

I would rate it an eight out of ten.
