We work with other products in Fortinet, FortiWeb, FortiSandbox, FortiMail, and FortiCache.

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.

More Fortinet FortiADC Cons »

"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."
