Fortinet FortiGate Review

Great anti-malware and web filtering features

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this solution as a security perimeter and for VPN. We are partners of Fortinet. 

What is most valuable?

I like the anti-malware and web filtering features. 

What needs improvement?

The solution could be more evenly structured and I'd like to see orchestration in the calls included. The solution currently lacks that feature. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for 12 months. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is great. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good. We rely a lot on the documentation which is a good standard. 

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

I previously used Meraki but I prefer Fortinet for its value and software capabilities. It's better than any of the other products in this field. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very easy. Deployment time depends on the complexity of the situation. 

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

We pay an annual license fee - I get a good price on this product.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.
