It supports securely connections for VPN users from outside our environment during the lockdown.
It seems to be more scalable than we thought.
The technical support from Fortinet and local vendors is good.

It has a very easy-to-use interface. It has ease of management, and all the modules are there. SKUs are also easily identifiable. Whatever is required in the firewall is already there in it. It's very advanced, and analytics reporting is very good. They also have cloud reporting. You get all the services that are available for your device in the cloud. You just have to subscribe. It's very easy. There's a lot of demand for this solution because it's an all-in-one solution. The throughput is very high.

When the user gets authenticated, I can assign a different VPN or network to each user.

The return on investment was very reasonable. It was low cost and it functioned, so the return on investment was excellent.

The solution is very scalable. It just depends on the number of licenses an organization has. The enterprise management console is related to the number of clients, and the client interface itself is free to download.

The only thing that is lacking in this product is the support. Their support can be improved.

Initially, the support was very poor. It is getting better, but they should continue to improve this.

There isn't much to improve in terms of features and comparison with other vendors. It just needs to stay more up to date in catching the malware. The user interface may be improved, which would be a minor enhancement. Unlike central management, in endpoint security, the end users don't need to keep looking at the endpoint user interface. The technology is the most important thing in endpoint security.
