Fortinet FortiGate Review

Stable, with a quota to monitor and control user access

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution as our Firewall.

FortiGate is a service, and because of that, I don't use it very much. The equipment is for the operator that monitors who is on the internet, nothing more.

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved our productivity because we can control the people who go on the internet, and we control their access to social networks.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is Quota. It allows the user to go where they want to go and to use the internet.

What needs improvement?

The price could be improved.

In the next release, I would like to see the interface simplified to be more user-friendly.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Fortinet FortiGate for approximately six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. It works for us.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is not an area fully explored. It has been sufficient for what we need.

We have 700 users in our organization who are using this solution. We don't have plans to increase our usage at this time.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not needed any technical support for the Fortinet FortiGate service.

How was the initial setup?

The initial set up was not something that I was concerned with.

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

The price could be lower.

What other advice do I have?

It's a good tool to control users.

I would rate Fortinet FortiGate an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
