Fortinet FortiGate Review

Affordable, simple, effective, and has good support

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is as a firewall.

How has it helped my organization?

The way the rules are created and set up on our firewall is very quick, very simple, and does not take a lot of time. It allows us to spend more time in other areas.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are that it is very simple to configure and to manage.

What needs improvement?

For me, this solution has nothing to improve and it meets the needs that I have. I don't see any way to improve, at least from my point of view on regular use.

In the next release, maybe the documentation on how to use this solution could be improved.

What I have noticed is that when we have done some configurations directly from the command line, there is not a lot of information regarding splitting.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for six years.

We are using the latest version.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Fortinet FortiGate is very scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

We are satisfied with technical support. We have not had any issues.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We used a reseller to help us with the implementation.

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

Pricing is very competitive. It's cheap for what it offers and for what it does.

It's very affordable.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it.

Fortinet FortiGate is simple and effective.

I would rate Fortinet Fortigate a nine out of ten.
