Pros
It's a great solution for management. We can manage a lot at the same time with one security management system. Also, each gateway depends on the other, which is helpful.The firewall's blades are the solution's most valuable feature.Key features include the ability to include logs for everything that you do for admin. Also, it has web filtering built in and VPN.URL filtering is a very important feature.

The most valuable features are customizing reports, and the ability to drill down to display critical information in real-time.The program is stable and it gives me great visibility.It has a simplified and user-friendly interface.It is a simple and solution.The IBS (Intent Based Segmentation) and application web filtering are the most valuable aspects of the solution.The feature I find most useful is the handy dashboard.We use this functionality every day, and obtain reports on things like how many people are using the VPN, which websites are being accessed, and whether hackers are trying to penetrate into our network.It supports SQL for logging and reporting. Log data is inserted into the SQL database for log view and report generation.

Cons
In the last version from 80.20, there are some issues around SSNA Diction. I would like this to be improved.We sometimes have trouble with the performance of the solution. Maybe some performance tuning options could be added in a future release. There should be more visibility about which blade in your firewall is causing the latency.I would like the ability to have an overview, cross-site: One portal that does all firewalls. Also, the user interface is overly complicated.The usability of the solution could be improved.

The reports are good, but they are over-summarized.The technical support is not very good.When it comes to pushing logs to a SIEM, most of the time we have some issues when it comes to filtering.I'm looking for something more efficient to analyze different foreign things. That's why FortiSIEM could compete with FortiAnalyzer.The solution could use more graphics and be more specific in the dashboard. This way, I'm able to understand everything and effectively understand what's going on, including what's incoming and outgoing. Right now, I have to look up everything. I need a dashboard so that I can see specific items right there in one place.I would like to see an improvement in the technical support. Stronger authentication will also be a plus.When somebody is new to the system they find it difficult to perform certain operations, like backups, and to see where the reports are.It is very important that FAZ can support FortiController as the architecture designed for the network. FortiController should be registered in FAZ at least for event logs.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Do the homework because Check Point is rather expensive.

The pricing of this solution is fair, and it is based on what you can manage.The program is expensive.The price is quite expensive. Fortinet products are very expensive. That is something which they should also look at, because if you compare Fortinet product to, say, Sophos for example, Fortinet is really high and that's the only thing which is a drawback for most users.We have around 12 devices and yearly we spend approximately $14,000.All Fortinet programs come at a good price.We have several products including Fortinet Wireless, FortiGate Firewalls, and FortiAnalyzer, which are bundled together and cost approximately $50,000 USD annually.The cost and pricing should be in accordance with the calculation of log storage capacity for a time period required for historical analysis.​It depends upon the company.​
