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

Pros
Advanced routing (RIP, OSPF, BGP, PBR). It gives you a seamless and simple integration into a large network.We use a southern institution that's audited for IT security and the reporting that automatically comes off the unit makes it much easier to meet compliance standards and makes it easier as far as the amount of time that has to be spent to compile that information. If you get your reporting set up correctly when you initially set it up, you just select the one you want and hit print. The auditing trail on it is the best feature.It is easy to use and performs very well.We are a visual effects company, and there have been a number of high profile security issues in our industry. This has brought us to a higher standard of security, which our clients are very keen on these days.It's a firewall that secures our internal network. I have been using it since 2013, and I find that most of the features are advanced, and very user friendly.The most valuable feature is the bundled subscription, which is IPS, TV and web filtering.It is a good source for firewall protection.It has improved our security capabilities.

Cons
I think there could be more QoS featuresThey should make the rule sets more understandable for the end user. When you're trying to explain to somebody how a computer network is secured, sometimes it's difficult for an end user or customer to understand. If there was a way to make the terminology more accessible to the end user, the set up could be easier. They should translate the technical jargon to an easily relatable and understandable conversation for the end user, the customer, that would be brilliant. Particularly in an environment where the IT structure is audited regularly, there's always pressure from the auditor to up the standards and up the security and you get your USCERT's that come out and there's a warning about this and the customer will want to lock out so much and when you apply it they run into issue where they can't search the internet or print to their remote office. Of course they can't print to your remote office, they just locked it up. They should make the language more understandable for the customer. If there's a product out there that made the jargon understandable to John Q. Public, I would buy that.There could be more integration between the logging and analytical platforms to make it more seamless and integrated.We had a minor problem where there was a major system upgrade on the hardware platfrom and the Mac client was not available as soon as it might have been. The PC client was available immediately, but we had to wait a month or so, before there was a mac client. I was slightly irritated that it was not ready on time, but it was eventually resolved.The web-cache feature which was previously on the FortiGate device, but was deleted with the recent upgrade should be returned. It was a very valuable feature for us.I think they need to improve more in order to be a competitor with the leaders of the field.The UTM filtering needs improvement.There were quite a few problems with the stability of the system.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Setup cost may be not so low, as you expect, because it depends on different factors, but TCO for 5 years may pleasantly surprise you.The initial setup is super straight forward and as far as the licensing goes for the small product that we have, the pricing was pretty competitive. It wasn't as simple and as cheap as a SonicWall but for the service we would get it was a good price.It is a good product from a price perspective versus functionality.Price-wise, it's at a good price point for our market.It is cost-effective, and provides a good value for your money. The pricing, and license renewal, is very reasonable for us.They need to be competitive with other solutions.It is an inexpensive solution.We find the most valuable aspect of this solution is the price. It is affordable, and cheaper than other firewalls.
