Fortinet FortiGate Review

The option of using the GUI and CLI interchangeably is invaluable

What is our primary use case?

Needed to get off of EOL Cisco ASA platform and we evaluated Checkpoint, Palo Alto, and FortiGate 1500 and 3000D. We chose FortiGate, FortiAnalyzer, and FortiManager as our solution.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Better visibility into traffic patterns
  • Lightening fast troubleshooting and reduced management complexity overall.

What is most valuable?

  • Live traffic viewer
  • Packet capture, and
  • The option of using GUI and CLI interchangeably.  

FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer helps us manage multiply firewalls.

What needs improvement?

The speed of synchronization between FortiManager and FortiGate could be improved, but that could be because we host them in Azure.

For how long have I used the solution?

Still implementing.
