Fortinet FortiGate Review

Controlling and tracing with web console works nicely for windows systems, but for Linux, only IP can be obtained.

Valuable Features:

  • Policy control
  • Web filtering
  • Application filter works smoothly.
  • Controlling and tracing with web console works nicely for windows systems.
  • Better QoS than Checkpoint, I believe.

Improvements to My Organization:

Previously, my organization had the Checkpoint firewall solution, which has been replaced by the Fortinet Fortigate solution, which is cost effective and more manageable from a beginner's perspective.

Fine QoS and Web based filtering solution is a plus.

Room for Improvement:

  • Maybe Linux system monitoring can be improved by the developers of the product.
  • Although it has policy control and web filtering, these could be better.
  • Application filter needs more control options.
  • IP tracing works only so-so.
  • Controlling and tracing with web console for Linux only obtains IP addresses.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

100D and 300D
