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.

Cons
The solution should allow users to keep the data for longer than the current periods. I can't get any historic data after more than a month.

It would make things much easier.I would like to see a SIEM bundled together with this because customers are looking into better reporting and more proactive security solutions.There are European and US clouds and sometimes we mix them up. The solution should make determining the clouds more clear, or make one cloud instead of having separate ones.
