Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"In the past, whether we got phishing emails or spam emails, they all went into our inbox. Now, the system is set to automatically put all phishing emails or spam-type emails that it doesn't block but suspects that they're suspicious, into the junk email folder. It gives users a way of giving it a second look or a second thought as to whether this is a real email or not, rather than seeing all the emails in their inbox. Now that they see it in their junk email box, they take further consideration and look at the email harder and determine if it is a phishing email."

"The most valuable feature is the advanced threat protection.""The encryption features are most valuable to us.""This is a solid email monitoring and security system that learns and maintains a two-way dialog with email system administrators.""If there is a problem somewhere Fortinet can act on it immediately. That is very important.""FortiMail Cloud is very fast.""The most valuable features are the low price and its ability to integrate with other Fortinet products.""The most valuable features are filtering and sandboxing."

Cons
"In terms of improvement, I would like for some of the reporting to be a little bit more robust. There should be more options for recording and more options for searching. For example, more fields to report against, more search criteria, more date filters, etc. They should also make the searching capability a little bit more flexible."

"I would like to see more advanced sandbox features, where you can actually download to a machine where you can test.""I've not been able to use more than two domains in the back end. I like to view logs for the different domains. If I add any other domain I'm not able to get a proper cPanel for that domain. I am talking about the login factors. I'm not able to see logs for different domains in a different Window. Basically, it's an issue in the login process.""The product could be improved by extending reporting tools and adding options for notification.""The setup of the rules can be improved. I think it should be simplified and would be the best improvement in the system.""Networking should be simplified.""The downside of this solution is that it is difficult to implement policies on FortiMail.""It is slightly difficult to configure FortiMail in the cloud with Exchange on-premise, especially the quarantine mailbox access for end-users."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"The price of this solution could be more competitive.""It should cost around $60,000. We bought it as a bundle, so everything comes together in the license. That is standard.""A license for our company using FortiMail and FortiCare (filtering and support) was $4000.""The licensing is for three years. In the beginning, we did not pay monthly, it was paid once for three years.""You only have to purchase one license for multiple participants."

Overview

Sentinel detects threats that traditional email security systems can't. It integrates directly with Microsoft Office 365 APIs to detect attacks coming from both internal and external sources. It uses artificial intelligence to detect signs of malicious intent and deception within every email with virtually no I.T. administration required.

Email has long been a favorite attack vector of cyber criminals and is often an early stage of advanced threats. But not only do you need to keep threats from getting in, you need to keep data from getting out. Fortinet’s email security solution has the highly effective, yet easy to use inbound and outbound protection you need. It comes in a large range of offerings to fit any size organization or service provider. Plus, unmatched flexibility in deployment modes and form factors means it fits perfectly in any environment.
