More Fortinet FortiPortal Pros »

"The management and the deployment features are most valuable. We can easily deploy and manage the devices. We can do fast deployments without moving from our office and by just providing a short description to the end-user about how to install the physical device.""The entire ease of use is most valuable. If you're managing firewalls locally with PAN-OS, the look and feel of Panorama is the same. So, you don't have to relearn another product. If you're used to managing firewalls from Palo Alto, you can easily use Panorama to manage them. It looks and feels the same.""The reporting is great.""The installation process is very simple.""Centralized firewall management and update management are the most valuable features.""The solution, especially the latest versions, is very stable.""Networks Panorama has improved our organizational security""I like its flexibility."

Cons
"Fortinet FortiPortal could improve by providing a learning portal and better security.""It's useful for us but if it had more educational reporting, it would good. It's not necessarily lacking but it's an area that could get better."

More Fortinet FortiPortal Cons »

"It could be more secure.""I would like to have better analytics.""Aside from pricing, I don't have any issues with Panorama.""We found a vulnerability where when we have a low flow, like 2.7K, it is not getting fired by the threat prevention. That's something important to improve on. They should have a proxy or some solution to solve the issue. We also found some issues around decrypting the flow. When we have more flow than expected to decrypt, the performance goes down.""The customer support needs to be better.""This would be a better solution if it were more tightly integrated with the firewalls.""It should have more connection with Threat Intelligence Cloud. They can also include features related to SecOps and automation API.""The configuration could be a bit better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Fortinet FortiPortal is relatively expensive, but being an industry-leading firewall, it does come with a cost.""The price of the solution is reasonable."

More Fortinet FortiPortal Pricing and Cost Advice »

"You can buy the hardware only and each box is not even $10,000. It's only $8,000 for the unit itself. However, then you are charged a three-year license at $81,000.""We pay approximately $3,000 a year in order to use the product.""The solution is priced well and there is a license for this solution that we pay annually for.""Sometimes the company prefers to give a license to test the product in our environment before we go to the customer. But the customer should buy his own license, and that's the system here. The system is different between one country and another. Some countries say that the IT solutions provider should provide the license.""We're a reseller, and we're an MSSP. So, we get some extreme discounts.""The price of Panorama is expensive.""We have a yearly license. The cost is not that high and not that cheap either.""The solution is expensive and could be cheaper."
