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

Pros
FortiMail Cloud is very fast.If there is a problem somewhere Fortinet can act on it immediately. That is very important.This is a solid email monitoring and security system that learns and maintains a two-way dialog with email system administrators.The most valuable features are the low price and its ability to integrate with other Fortinet products.The encryption features are most valuable to us.The most valuable feature is the advanced threat protection.The most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to check to see if the email is real.The implementation was very professional. There are a lot of features I can get through Fortinet and FortiMail, such as security. FortiGuard is the most reliable and professional mitigation center to handle incidents and risk that I have to face.

The anti-spam features are excellent on the email firewalls.The most valuable feature is the ability to remove bad messages that were delivered, prior to being classified as unwanted.

Cons
Networking should be simplified.The setup of the rules can be improved. I think it should be simplified and would be the best improvement in the system.The product could be improved by extending reporting tools and adding options for notification.The downside of this solution is that it is difficult to implement policies on FortiMail.I've not been able to use more than two domains in the back end. I like to view logs for the different domains. If I add any other domain I'm not able to get a proper cPanel for that domain. I am talking about the login factors. I'm not able to see logs for different domains in a different Window. Basically, it's an issue in the login process.I would like to see more advanced sandbox features, where you can actually download to a machine where you can test.This solution is slow and it should be made faster.The dashboard could use improvement.

The solution could be improved with the addition of PLP and email encryption features.Proofpoint should have better integration with complex environments that need more than one instance of Proofpoint, as there are issues with nested instances.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing is for three years. In the beginning, we did not pay monthly, it was paid once for three years.A license for our company using FortiMail and FortiCare (filtering and support) was $4000.You only have to purchase one license for multiple participants.It should cost around $60,000. We bought it as a bundle, so everything comes together in the license. That is standard.The price of this solution could be more competitive.When we're talking about pricing, other products have about the same price. That is normal.It's on a subscribed basis.
