Fortinet FortiOS Review

Technical support offers good regional support and it has good scaling options

What is our primary use case?

We use the on-prem deployment model of this solution and on the cloud. Our primary use case of this solution is for bandwidth management and VPN. 

What needs improvement?

In terms of what needs improvement, the pricing could be lower. The price is very steep.

I would like to see in the next release that any client, even small ones from a home office, can run on any access point, not just the one that can be used with Fortinet. It should have an appliance that can be used to support and manage other access points. All the products should be uniform and easy to find. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Fortinet FortiOS for around three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable. It is easy for me to integrate interfaces. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It has a lot of scalability abilities which makes it easy to scale. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is quite good an informative. They also offer regional support which has been good. We are satisfied. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. I would recommend it to someone considering it.
