Currently issues with some of the switches and problems with the firmware.The product could use more security related features.If you contact Fortinet, it's a bit difficult. Most of the time, they send you just links and documents to read for troubleshooting. When you contact support, you don't need documents. You want someone that can understand your problem, give a hand, and help you. I'm not impressed by the support really.I don't like the way it's managed.The solution has SD-WAN but it doesn't have SDN. This should be added.Technical support needs to take a different approach and pricing should appear more competitive.
