You can control it from the screen.The solution is user-friendly and is readily customizable, which allows us to do control and monitoring in a single stage.

The most valuable feature is the central configuration for firewall policies.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.Fortinet has the option of synchronization in the cloud, so you can manage everything if you have a cloud account.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.A fully integrated solution.The most valuable features are the centralized management of the firewalls.The user interface is very easy to navigate.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.

Cons
We would like to have more products supported by the drivers because there are so many products out there. If DataMiner has not built the drivers to support them we can not control them, we can only see them based on SNMP. If more drivers are included, it won't cost us if we have new products.

Having FortiManager work with all of the Fortinet products would be a good improvement.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.The response times from technical support need to be a bit quicker.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.Can be difficult to configure.It's a difficult process to transfer one interface from one virtual domain to another.Regional support in African countries needs to be improved.Troubleshooting for Fortinet products is more difficult than competing products like Cisco and Palo Alto.
