We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"One of the big advantages of using Fortinet FortiWeb is all the Fortinet family solutions use the same user interface and logic. This makes it easy to use, configure, manage, and understand if you have used one of their solutions before or are wanting to implement other Fortinet solutions in the future. Additionally, all Fortinet solutions can be managed with one application called FortiManager."
"The GUI is user-friendly."
"The GUI is user-friendly and it's easy to understand how to manage it."
"It is a stable product."
"I have recently been looking at the SSL certificate features and the learning mode of the appliance. This appliance learns from the pattern of SSL attacks."
"The solution has a very simple deployment."
"This product is very user-friendly."
"FortiGate is a stable product."
"The three most valuable features that I noticed are the geo-localization of the user, the IP reputation, and the compartmental analysis."
"The support side of things can be improved."
"They could improve their support a little bit for faster response time."
"We have had problems with deployments where we've had to contact technical support to resolve them."
"The solution could improve by providing more integration with solutions other than the Fortinet family."
"The dashboard evaluating the performance of each application connected to the web app's firewall is quite helpful, but the tool is only available in application performance management. So I think if Fortinet could better integrate that particular feature, it would add a lot of value to the product."
"Fortinet WAF came out recently, and there is not much feedback about customer experience. For each project, customers ask about the scenarios and references of the customers who have implemented this solution, which we don't have. They need to simplify the customer experience and provide more information so that we can propose Fortinet Fortiweb as a WAF solution to customers and convince them. They need to improve their service and training. We need good training to implement and use it properly and know more about it. We still don't know much about Fortinet WAF. We didn't get any proper training sessions. Other vendors like Cisco, Palo Alto, Check Point, and Barracuda provide such sessions. Whenever we receive a request from a customer for this solution, we just give the price. We don't propose this solution because we don't know much about it. We propose whatever we are familiar with and what is supported."
"The solution could offer more integration opportunities."
"In terms of performance, it needs to be more robust."
"The area that should be improved is licensing."
"There are no licensing costs."
"It is an expensive suite and it is an expensive solution, but it is a manageable one for an enterprise."
"Its subscription prices are cheaper, and it is not very expensive. From a price perspective, Fortinet is a very well-known security vendor. Subscriptions are very simple. They have a couple of licenses on an appliance, and that's it. The cost is not that big. One license is 40K, which they give with all the products. Another one includes the subscriptions for threat prevention, IPS, sandboxing, etc, which is more than enough."
"The price is competitive."
"FortiWeb is more expensive than some competing products."
"It's an expensive solution, although there are no additional costs."
"The costs are standard. We pay around $1,600 yearly."
"Due to the situation in Iran with the sanctions, the price of this solution is very expensive."
