Fortinet FortiExtender Review

Stable and scalable but it should be more intuitive and user friendly

What is our primary use case?

We use it in our head office.

What is most valuable?

We haven't implemented all of the features. We are just about to implement the captive portal and the edit to 1X authentication. It's taken us a little bit of time to get there. At the moment we are just using it as an open wireless access point.

What needs improvement?

The solution would be a lot better if it was a little bit more intuitive.

Additionally, the help menu would be a lot better if it was easier to identify the items that I was looking for. I find the graphical interface a little bit difficult to navigate. And I find the font that is used on the HTML interface not conducive to being able to be read in low light situations.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Fortinet for around two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is beautiful.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is beautiful.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was was just beautiful. It was straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm happy with the price.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to people looking at the solution is that I think they should buy it.

On a scale of one to ten I would give Fortinet FortiExtender a seven.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
