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

Pros
"One of the most feature-packed switching solutions you can implement.""The visual scope of the solution is very good. It allows me to see and download all of the network information.""The most valuable feature is that I can completely isolate devices that are compromising the network.""What I really love in FortiSwitch: its usability, the graphical user interface, and the ability to be managed by FortiGate.""The most valuable feature of this product is its simplicity.""Ability to manage FortiAP, FortiClient, and FortiGate all from a single console""The most valuable feature would be network management, separating the network management component from security. It can do both but we promote it on its own. It's a good solution to do network management.""It works really well, I think the equipment is solid, and the help is great."

Cons
"Technical support needs to take a different approach and pricing should appear more competitive.""The solution has SD-WAN but it doesn't have SDN. This should be added.""I don't like the way it's managed.""If you contact Fortinet, it's a bit difficult. Most of the time, they send you just links and documents to read for troubleshooting. When you contact support, you don't need documents. You want someone that can understand your problem, give a hand, and help you. I'm not impressed by the support really.""The product could use more security related features.""Currently issues with some of the switches and problems with the firmware.""It could be simpler but compared to the competition, it's not so bad.""It would also help if they lowered the cost of their service."

"The strength of the signal from the access points could be improved.""Switching devices requires reconfiguration from scratch.""The downside is the interface changes, where they are constantly doing firmware updates."

You can buy just the hardware, or you can buy the hardware and the licenses."
