We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
We use it to protect files and to prevent users from browsing them while they are being used.The most valuable features of this solution are the security aspects.It is extremely stable, and can expand as per our needs due to its stability.The biggest thing, for us lately, has been their cloud tools. They're like Intercept X from Sophos, where they'll test for ransomware. Fortinet has the same sort of set up with their cloud devices. So your firewall picks up something suspicious, it sends it up to the cloud for analysis. We also have their in-house antivirus. Having different antivirus checkpoints throughout the network is a good thing as well.

Cons
They need to improve the web filter to make it more user-friendly.The pricing of this solution is a little bit on the high side and can be improved.We had some issues trying to fix some critical bugs, such as the SSL encryption.I'm an old-school guy. I really don't like web GUI interfaces. They're always slow and laggy and their design is restricted, whereas a binary deployment for an admin tool is always faster, easier, more flexible. I would like that kind of functionality from Fortinet.

We would like to see the ability to administer and manage the solution through Enterprise Manager 13c, and development of the dashboards that are generally missing.Some of our customers were asking about latency when the application wants to get to the database.The product monitors only the database and not the operating systems.One feature that is missing is the ability to have a secret server that is always encrypted.Customized reporting is something that we are struggling with, and it is quite tough for us.This solution doesn't audit the network.An easy, friendly user interface would be nice to have, since this would enable administrators to identify important events with a prompt response.
