We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Cradlepoint NetCloud is very stable."
"This solution has solid UTM features combined with a nice GUI."
"It blocks the vulnerabilities that can negatively impact us."
"The security features are about the best that I've seen anywhere."
"The most valuable feature is the VDOM, which allows the customer to have multiple firewalls in a single campus."
"FortiGate Secure SD-WAN includes best-of-breed next-generation firewall (NGFW) security, SD-WAN, advanced routing, and WAN optimization capabilities, delivering a security-driven networking WAN edge transformation in a unified offering."
"SSL-VPN is very useful for us and has been very reliable."
"Virtual Domains (VDOMs) are a feature that we found valuable."
"We are a visual effects company, and there have been a number of high profile security issues in our industry. This has brought us to a higher standard of security, which our clients are very keen on these days."
"In our situation, the initial setup was complex."
"The Web-filter in this solution is not very good."
"I would like to have logs, monitoring, and reporting for a month without extra fees."
"Technical support for this solution can be improved."
"Improvement is needed in the Web Filter quotas to restrict users with allocated quotas."
"There is a lot of improvement needed with SSL-VPN."
"The user interface could be improved to make it less confusing and easier to set up."
"To the best of my knowledge, Fortinet does not have a CASB solution and Fortinet does not have a Zero trust solution."
"We had a minor problem where there was a major system upgrade on the hardware platfrom and the Mac client was not available as soon as it might have been. The PC client was available immediately, but we had to wait a month or so, before there was a mac client. I was slightly irritated that it was not ready on time, but it was eventually resolved."
"Cradlepoint's prices are on par with similar solutions."
"The pricing for this solution is good."
"Fortinet Secure SD-WAN delivered the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) per Mbps among all other vendors."
"Fortinet is the least expensive solution."
"It's very affordable."
"Setup cost may be not so low, as you expect, because it depends on different factors, but TCO for 5 years may pleasantly surprise you."
"The Indian market is different than the European and American markets. When you compare they need to be a bit more aggressive on pricing."
"I think that the pricing is fair."
"For our organization, the licensing costs are approximately $7,000 per year."
