"When we had Cisco we had around thirty thousand entries on our firewalls. Now we are down to three thousand. Fortinet has a mechanism to detect all of your entries which are not used, and it can clean it up.""All the features that FortiGate contains are very suitable for our business. We work with other products in Fortinet, FortiWeb, FortiSandbox, FortiMail, and FortiCache. We use all UTM features like self-encryption, encryption, all UTM features.""What we like about Fortinet FortiWeb is it has all the features. We use all of them, so we have to turn on all the options.""The most valuable feature in this solution is the ability to disseminate between the user entering some wrong value to the field, and a suspicious actor trying to exploit some known vulnerability.""It's the extra security that is the most valuable feature. You have insight into your traffic. There are some great insights into what utilities hackers are trying to exploit. It blocks a lot of stuff from the internet.""FortiWeb offers machine learning in the latest product. This fixed many problems. There are no false negatives.""The most valuable features are support and security.""The GUI is user-friendly and it's easy to understand how to manage it."

Cons
"The product could be improved on the global load and the integration with the other solution like Cisco and Dell. As a representor of the operation, we prefer to have one platform which can accommodate all type of integration. We are also looking for more improvements in the security policy configuration.""You need to have Linux knowledge in order to use the shell.""In terms of the scalability, this part is always so confusing because they are checking for packet count. Also, after an attack, they said that the throughput must be from gigabits but then I check my bandwidth and it is already done in gigabits. So it is a little bit confusing."

"I would like to have an antivirus option.""New releases and old releases have some bugs, some features do not work as good as we want but every new release the Fortinet team fixes up problems.""Fortinet FortiWeb needs to improve the way it's configured. Common services like publishing exchange should be done in one click only.""We would like to know more about the integration with the hardware or security products, such as Gemalto, because we need to move to that point.""The solution is rather complicated. If you know what to do, it's not bad, but it's complicated for a first time user to configure the solution. What I'd like to improve are the custom signatures.""Fortinet FortiWeb is not scalable. You'll need more budget to change the hardware.""I would like to see more improvements with respect to threat intelligence.""Describing security rules should be improved. It's tricky to define new feature tools when you want to describe an attack pattern and want to block it."

FortiWeb, by itself, is probably around $2,500 to $3,500.""FortiWeb is more expensive than some competing products.""Due to the situation in Iran with the sanctions, the price of this solution is very expensive.""It's an expensive solution, although there are no additional costs.""It is fine now.

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: Again, if the solution doesn't have a web application firewall capability, it can raise the solution price. Pricing can be higher than the other solutions.
Top Answer: To make this solution much better, they must have a user-friendly configuration interface. I'm working for a partner site, so for the technical portion, it must have great troubleshooting stats. For… more »
Top Answer: FortiWeb is more expensive than some competing products.
