Fortinet FortiGate Cloud Review

Very stable, easy to set up, and easy to implement reporting

What is our primary use case?

Fortinet is what we use for our firewall and we get reports from FortiCloud. We use those to see the state of our network. We generally use it for reporting purposes whereby we see what's happening on our network at the end of each day or week.

What is most valuable?

The solution is definitely stable, which is its most valuable feature.

It's easy to use and the fact that I can schedule the report to come to my inbox at set times is very convenient for me.

What needs improvement?

The solution should allow users to keep the data for longer than the current periods. I can't get any historic data after more than a month. I would like to be able to, after a year, look for trends from the past 12 months. It would make things much easier.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for about a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is quite stable. I haven't run into any issues where there were unexpected crashes or glitches.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I've never attempted to scale the solution, so I'm not sure how easy or difficult it would be to expand if one needed to.

We only have five people using the solution currently. They're all admin and support level individuals.

How are customer service and technical support?

So far, we've been satisfied with technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution. This is the first time we've implemented a product like this.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. I didn't find there were any complexities.

Deployment only took a few minutes and then it was ready to use.

What about the implementation team?

I handled the implementation myself.

What other advice do I have?

We use the latest version of the solution.

I'd recommend the solution. It's working really well for us and is completely meeting our expectations.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
