Fortinet FortiGate Review

Controls the user's activities and maximizes my bandwidth use overall

What is our primary use case?

The company has integrated the LDAP with the UTM to control user traffic in senses and have a high availability for Active/Passive to assure uptime in case of physical failure. Our company is cloud driven and downtime becomes critical.

How has it helped my organization?

The FortiGate controls the user's activities and maximizes my bandwidth use overall. If the employer BYOD, we can accommodate it the need by having an isolated networked exclusively for that equipment which does not comply with the internal policies.

What is most valuable?

The value is the capability of having multiple services with one unique license, not having the limitation per user licensing schema, like other vendors.

What needs improvement?

Reporting is limited to providing an external appliance for improving the reporting capabilities of the FortiAnalyzer. It does not offer a central management and is also sold separably as an appliance.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
