Fortinet FortiGate Review

A solution that impresses our customers and saves them money in the long run

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for this solution is as an SMB boundary firewall, and we now use their Security Fabric.

How has it helped my organization?

This is a quality product with ok support, and it is better than the competition we've tried.

What is most valuable?

Security Fabric makes VLANs a breeze. It impresses customers, as well as saves them money over the long run when comparing apples to apples.

What needs improvement?

FortiOS is not simple. Too many people think it should be simple to use, but the complexity of the product makes that impossible.

For how long have I used the solution?

Seventeen years.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support for this solution is ok.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
