I like the traffic monitoring because it meets the firewall protocols.It has a nice graphic interface and it is easy to find information about effectively using the product because of the large user-base.We think it's a good solution for cloud security, where one has hybrid cloud. They have different cloud solutions like a Office 365 or Azure or Amazon. This is a good solution to control all the different cloud solutions you have in your family of hybrid clouds, from one panel. This is what the main feature we look for.

We have a lot of false positives, which is one area that can be improved.Sometimes attacks or a new ransomware gets through.In the on-premises version, I don't like the deployment and structuring of the device.Overall the software is occupying too much memory space. If they could remedy that, it would be a better experience, because today Windows is occupying too much memory space as well (in terms of the RAM), and this software has also started occupying all the memory. Due to this, I have less space for my other office products and data. I can't, for example, operate a huge Excel sheet or other datasets.The deployment is a bit complex and it requires expertise to deploy, which is something that should be improved and made easier to do.The solution should be better able to support itself and operate faster. Sometimes the technical support team takes too long to respond.The firewall doesn't have any features because some customers are requesting they will install the firewall without licensing. At this time we cannot go further without licensing. Licensing is a must with Forcepoint Web Security firewalls.Ease of use could be improved.

It should be set up more specifically so that I only pay for what I want.Sometimes when using high availability, the second firewall does not come up immediately if the first one goes down.However, we would like them to add more integrations. We would appreciate a more open solution. They're quite good when you have the entire Fortinet ecosystem, but otherwise it's not as good of a solution.
