"The product is a combination of management and monitoring from the same interface.""It would normally take us a handful of days to install one FortiGate instance on one site. But with this technology, zero-touch deployment, we need just one hour or maybe as little as 30 minutes to install one site. It is much more efficient.""The user interface is very easy to navigate.""The most valuable features are the centralized management of the firewalls.""A fully integrated solution.""We look at the traffic to segment the network and it improves and increases the performance. When we have a mobile connection and local laptops are on the same network. We have seen a big performance upgrade.""Fortinet has the option of synchronization in the cloud, so you can manage everything if you have a cloud account.""For the whole security fabric from Fortinet, with a simple click you can see if some workstations or services are affected by an attack. You can really easily quarantine it, check the solution, and fix it."

Cons
"Deployment is complicated.""When a new version comes out, sometimes, my existing configuration gets wiped out. They should work on this so that my existing configuration doesn't get impacted with an upgrade to a newer version. There could also reduce frequent firmware upgrade activities and have a stable version so that once we upgrade it, we don't have to upgrade it for two to three years.""The interface could be improved, some customers struggle with that."

"The areas that need improvement are implemenation and support. In terms of implementation, it mainly needs clear documentation.""Troubleshooting for Fortinet products is more difficult than competing products like Cisco and Palo Alto.""Regional support in African countries needs to be improved.""It's a difficult process to transfer one interface from one virtual domain to another.""Can be difficult to configure.""Performance issues should be improved. We have problems when we have more mobile connections than local devices. Most of us have two to three devices.""The response times from technical support need to be a bit quicker.""Fortinet is releasing quite a lot of new versions and I would say that most of the versions are not well tested before they're pushed out. Even the new versions sometimes are a bit buggy before it's all correct."

More Citrix ADM Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Fortinet FortiManager is not expensive at all if you compare it with other vendors like Check Point and Cisco. Fortinet products are the least expensive on the market in the category of firewalls.""The licensing costs depend on how many devices you want to use.""In comparison with other products, the price of FortiManager is reasonable.""Fortinet is a high-end product and the cost is high. They should consider reducing the price, especially for existing customers."
