Fortinet FortiGate-VM Review

Easy to deploy and the support is good

What is our primary use case?

We work with the government and the customers do not want the VM solution, they prefer appliance solutions.

What is most valuable?

Compared to other appliances, the features are the same. 

The machine resources are the main difference.

What needs improvement?

It is difficult to size the VM in terms of machine resources, and for this reason, clients prefer the appliance.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support is good. We don't have any issues with the technical support. 

How was the initial setup?

The deployment is easy, there are no issues with the deployment of this solution.

We deploy on-premises and sometimes on a private cloud.

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

The price could be lower. It's expensive.

What other advice do I have?

We like this solution.

I would rate Fortinet FortiGate-VM an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
