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.

In the next release of this solution, I would like to see more user awareness, such as information about phishing email attacks that have been prevented.The reporting functionality is in major need of improvement.There are a few issues with integration that need to be addressed; this would help make deployment easier for new users.There aren't enough advanced settings. They should offer more advanced options.Reporting could have more options for users to customize desired results.In the advanced version, you have DLP, Data Loss Prevention, but when you buy the standard version, you don't have it.

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.
