Fortinet FortiGate Review

Enables us to to set up remote systems and has good stability

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution as our firewall. 

How has it helped my organization?

We have branches that we use for the net clients to VPN back into our network.

What is most valuable?

The ability to set up remote systems is the most valuable feature. 

What needs improvement?

They should improve the interface to make it more user-friendly. 

I would like to see some sort of reporting if there was an issue with the connecting network sources or connections.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's definitely stable. We haven't had any issues with it. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I would rate the scalability an eight out of ten. We have just over 100 users using this solution.  

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex. The user interface was a little bit difficult so it made actually setting it up a little bit complicated. The deployment took a week to roll out four branches.

What about the implementation team?

We used an integrator for the deployment and had a good experience with them. They made it easier to get everything set up.

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

There are no additional costs aside for the standard licensing fees.

What other advice do I have?

FortiGate is very good if you're thinking of expanding where you have remote offices, then it's a good solution.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
