Cons
The downside of this solution is that it is difficult to implement policies on FortiMail.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.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.

A lot of spoofed emails are still coming to the end-user, so the configuration for this option needs to be improved.We would like to see more information on a dashboard about what is happening when it comes to spamming and malware.They need well-trained partners in Nigeria.The technical support from the company is not always very good at solving issues, but they offer access to a good community of users where problems are easily solved.

Pricing and Cost Advice
You only have to purchase one license for multiple participants.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.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.
