Fortinet FortiGate Cloud Review

Security is improved through sandbox features and the technical support is good

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and this is one of the solutions that I provide to my customers.

I am familiar with Sandboxing services and some of the other features. This solution is mainly used for securing events.

What is most valuable?

The sandboxing feature is very important.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a SIEM bundled together with this because customers are looking into better reporting and more proactive security solutions.

In the next release, it would benefit this solution to have more advanced monitoring capabilities such as predictive analysis and reporting.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using FortiCloud for five or six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not come across any problems with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

With respect to scalability, we have had no problems whatsoever.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have been in contact with the Fortinet technical support a couple of times, although it has been for hardware-related issues and had nothing to do with our configuration. One of our customers had hardware that was failing quite often.

The technical support is pretty good and so far, we have no complaints.

How was the initial setup?

This initial setup is pretty straightforward. I don't think that it is complex.

The entire firewall implementation will take a couple of days, maximum. This is with everything, all together.

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

Some of our customers purchase yearly licenses, while others purchase subscriptions that are three years in length. The price is over $1,000 USD annually.

What other advice do I have?

FortiCloud helps to enhance the security posture of any organization, and I definitely recommend looking into it.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
