We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"FortiMail Cloud is very fast."
"If there is a problem somewhere Fortinet can act on it immediately. That is very important."
"The most valuable features are filtering and sandboxing."
"This is a solid email monitoring and security system that learns and maintains a two-way dialog with email system administrators."
"The most valuable features are the low price and its ability to integrate with other Fortinet products."
"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."
"The downside of this solution is that it is difficult to implement policies on FortiMail."
"The product could be improved by extending reporting tools and adding options for notification."
"Networking should be simplified."
"The setup of the rules can be improved. I think it should be simplified and would be the best improvement in the system."
"It is slightly difficult to configure FortiMail in the cloud with Exchange on-premise, especially the quarantine mailbox access for end-users."
"The licensing is for three years. In the beginning, we did not pay monthly, it was paid once for three years."
"A license for our company using FortiMail and FortiCare (filtering and support) was $4000."
"You only have to purchase one license for multiple participants."
