SaifKhan1Network Security Engineer at a consumer goods company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We haven't received any complaints or performance issues so far."
"Most of our customers are using the load balancing feature and also the verification feature is good as well, in my experience."
"The initial setup is simple. Normally with all setups, it's not very complicated. It really depends on the customer."
"The solution is very stable. If I were to rate it out of ten, I would give stability a nine."
"The stability of the solution is perfect."
"The features that we have found most valuable are the web app support and VPN."
"It's a stable solution while it's running. We don't have to work on it a lot. There are not many bugs, so it's easy to use if you deploy successfully. You can be sure of an uninterrupted solution for quite a long time. Citrix is a good product."
"What I find most valuable about this solution, is that it runs seamlessly."
"The solution is very scalable. It just depends on the number of licenses an organization has. The enterprise management console is related to the number of clients, and the client interface itself is free to download."
"I think the solution is highly scalable."
"The most valuable feature is that it's easy to deploy. Deployment, configuration, and troubleshooting are very easy."
"The configuration is the most valuable feature."
"It is very easy and useful. A normal user with basic information can easily connect to any environment."
"From an application perspective, this solution is stable."
"The solution's most valuable feature is its integration capabilities. The processing is fast and the reporting is also very good."
"The initial setup of this solution is easy."
"The load balancing could be improved."
"If the solution had a more advanced DNS, it would be an improvement."
"I'd like to see support for reverse proxy and more security features."
"The initial setup is very complex."
"The solution can be a bit pricey."
"The dashboard or interface should be more clear in reporting issues. Integration with other applications should be more user-friendly."
"The major issue is price. I would also like them to make other aspects more accessible."
"I would like to see better configuration of repairs and downloading certification."
"Initially, the support was very poor. It is getting better, but they should continue to improve this."
"I would like to see an improvement in the web filter, because I think it can be more user-friendly."
"The price could also use improvement."
"The pricing could use improvement."
"Technical support is awful. Their online response time is not prompt. They should not respond after four or five days. Their support guys are not competent enough. Small issues are taking time."
"The memory check needs to be improved, giving better visibility into the run-time memory."
"The pricing of the solution should be less expensive."
"FortiClient is not communicating with the new version of the firewall."
"Usually with Citrix the issue is the pricing, especially for the African region. We believe it's really expensive."
"Pricing is very high if you do a comparison with what is available in the market."
"I believe the pricing is comparable to SaaS"
"An annual license costs about 1.5 to 3,000 US dollars. There are no additional costs."
"The price is okay and competitive."
"Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection."
"FortiClient is quite reasonably priced."
"The pricing is reasonable."
"The pricing is good because you get and end-to-end security solution in one package price."
"The cost per port is very less as compared to the other technologies."
"We are using the free version of this product."
