Secure VPN access for remote network users that is free but takes to long to install

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for FortiClient is just for its capability to securely connect VPN users from outside our environment during the lockdown. It has strong authentication. We use it for a VPN client for our network users. They just connect to our network in order to get access to our enterprise environment and for the EFT (Electronic File Transfer) system.

Pros and Cons

  • "It supports securely connections for VPN users from outside our environment during the lockdown."
  • "It seems to be more scalable than we thought."
  • "The technical support from Fortinet and local vendors is good."
  • "It takes too long to install."
  • "The user interface could be more inviting."

What other advice do I have?

I can definitely encourage other people to use the FortiClient VPN. FortiClient is a pretty great solution for the VPN. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I can rate FortiClient as a seven-out-of-ten from my experience with this product over the past six months.

Good reporting, provides several options for restricting access, and the technical support is good

What is our primary use case?

As we are working from home at the moment, this solution is very good for us right now. It provides an SSL link to access resources remotely.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is our ability to limit access by user, IP address, or MAC address."
  • "No solution is perfect, so there is room for improvement."

What other advice do I have?

Altogether, this is a very good product. That said, no solution is perfect. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for the control of application delivery.

What is most valuable?

All of the features are quite valuable, including the node balancing and gateway.

What needs improvement?

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable. If I were to rate it out of ten, I would give stability a nine.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is okay. Out of ten, I would rate it at seven.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is not…
