We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
Virtual Domains (VDOMs) are a feature that we found valuable.
SSL-VPN is very useful for us and has been very reliable.
FortiGate Secure SD-WAN includes best-of-breed next-generation firewall (NGFW) security, SD-WAN, advanced routing, and WAN optimization capabilities, delivering a security-driven networking WAN edge transformation in a unified offering.
Advanced routing (RIP, OSPF, BGP, PBR). It gives you a seamless and simple integration into a large network.
The most valuable feature is the VDOM, which allows the customer to have multiple firewalls in a single campus.
The security features are about the best that I've seen anywhere.
It blocks the vulnerabilities that can negatively impact us.
Our organization finds the application routing features extremely useful.
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.
I think there could be more QoS features
Improvement 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 UTM features can be improved. It should offer better functionality.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Fortinet is the least expensive solution.
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.
