Fortinet FortiDB Room for Improvement

WatchGuard has a desktop-based admin tool, instead of doing everything through the web. I'm an old-school guy. I really don't like web GUI interfaces. They're always slow and laggy and their design is restricted, whereas a binary deployment for an admin tool is always faster, easier, more flexible. I would like that kind of functionality from Fortinet. In part, it's bias, because I'm familiar with it. But WatchGuard is a very flexible tool. It's very dated now, it needs to be worked on, but it is quite a good tool in that way. View full review »

Some use case analyses could be improved. In some cases of port forwarding, the creation of LIPs needs improvement. For every instance you have to create a new iteration. If there was an option by which you could create a LIP on a single console, it would be helpful. View full review »

They need to improve the web filter to make it more user-friendly. The cost needs to be reduced. In the next release, I would like this solution to include some phishing detection, to detect phishing activity on the network. I would like a way to keep users away from my domain controller. If somebody wants access to the internet, it would have to be authenticated from the main controller, or if the user wants access for internal use. If the machine is not from the domain it is not granted access. View full review »
