Fortinet FortiGate Review

Its stability is the most valuable, and it is also scalable


What is our primary use case?

We use it to create a WAN. We also use it for the UTM firewall.

We don't have the latest versions. We've got the 60Ds and 30E products.

What is most valuable?

Its stability is the most valuable.

What needs improvement?

It should provide better visibility over the network and more information in the form of reports for the end users. Its installation should also be easier.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for about three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. We use it at five sites, and all in all, we have around 300 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

We don't deal with Fortinet.

How was the initial setup?

It was complex for me, but it was quick.

What about the implementation team?

We had to use an outside resource to set it up.

What other advice do I have?

We are going to move over to Meraki, so we won't be using this solution. I would recommend this solution to others, but it is a matter of preference.

I would rate Fortinet FortiGate an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
