Cons
"I think there could be more QoS features""We would like to see a better training platform implemented.""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.""To the best of my knowledge, Fortinet does not have a CASB solution and Fortinet does not have a Zero trust solution.""The user interface could be improved to make it less confusing and easier to set up.""There is a lot of improvement needed with SSL-VPN.""Improvement is needed in the Web Filter quotas to restrict users with allocated quotas.""Technical support for this solution can be improved."

"They need more gateways""There is no security included, which is something that should be improved.""There is room for improvement with respect to security.""The cost of VeloCloud could be lowered.""Complex deployment and integration.""Reports could be simplified.""VeloCloud needs improvement in terms of its security features.""Technical support is in need of improvement."

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.""Fortinet is the least expensive solution.""Fortinet Secure SD-WAN delivered the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) per Mbps among all other vendors.""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."

More Fortinet FortiGate Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is very comparable to Fortinet.""The price of this solution should be lower.""The price of this solution is higher than that of other SD-WAN vendors.""VeloCloud performs as well as the Cisco SD-WAN but it is cheaper in price."
