Cons
There is a lot of improvement needed with SSL-VPN.I think there could be more QoS featuresImprovement is needed in the Web Filter quotas to restrict users with allocated quotas.Technical support for this solution can be improved.I would like to have logs, monitoring, and reporting for a month without extra fees.The Web-filter in this solution is not very good.FortiOS is not simple.This product could be improved with Active directory integration and better handling in IPsec and GRE Tunnels.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Fortinet Secure SD-WAN delivered the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) per Mbps among all other vendors.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 pricing for this solution is good.Before choosing a piece of equipment you have to take into account the cost-benefit offered by each one. Sometimes it is not worth paying a very cheap price to have a minimum level of security.Each feature costs money, so it is important to study your needs.I would say that all things considered, the pricing is pretty good.Fortinet is reasonable in pricing and licensing. Overall, FortiGate is affordable. The licensing fee can be a little high, depending on the budget for your project.Our licensing costs are on a yearly basis.
