Fortinet FortiGate Review

Web filtering is good but I can't allow traffic from outside to inside using a NAT pool.

Valuable Features

  • IPS
  • Web filtering

Improvements to My Organization

We are making use of the VDOM feature to segregate the traffic, and apply policy to control that traffic.

Room for Improvement

This product can't show the NAT status or NAT logs.

Use of Solution

I've been using ForitGate for over two years alongside FortiManager 300D.

Deployment Issues

I have an issue with NAT only, in that I can't allow traffic from outside to inside using a NAT pool.

Stability Issues

There was a bug related to device stability with HA configuration. We face many attacks on the network which causes the CPU usage to become high and, with the older device, we started losing the heartbeat and control messages, causing HA split-brain and lag flapping.This issue has been fixed in the new release.

Scalability Issues

No issues encountered.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

They're good.

Technical Support:

They're very good.

Previous Solutions

No previous solution used.

Initial Setup

It was complex to setup.

Implementation Team

We used a vendor, ALU to help implement it.
