What is Fortinet FortiEDR?

Advanced attacks can take just minutes, if not seconds, to compromise the endpoints. First-generation endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools simply cannot keep pace. They require manual triage and responses that are not only too slow for fast moving threats but they also generate a huge volume of indicators that burden already overstretched security teams. Further, legacy EDR tools drive up the cost of security operations and can slow processes, negatively impacting business.

FortiEDR delivers advanced, real-time threat protection for endpoints both pre- and post-infection. It proactively reduces the attack surface, prevents malware infection, detects and defuses potential threats in real time, and can automate response and remediation procedures with customizable playbooks. FortiEDR helps organizations stop breaches in real-time automatically and efficiently, without overwhelming security teams with a slew of false alarms or disrupting business operations.

Fortinet FortiEDR is also known as enSilo, FortiEDR.

Has an easy setup and good firewall response

Pros and Cons

  • "The ease of deployment and configuration is valuable. It's very easy compared to other vendors like Sophos. Sophos' configuration is complex. Fortinet is a lot easier to understand. You don't need a lot of admin knowledge to do the configuration."
  • "The security should be strong for the cloud. Some applications are on-prem and some are on the cloud. Fortinet should also have strong security for the cloud. There should be more security for the cloud."

What other advice do I have?

As of now, it's very good. We don't have a lot of challenges. The EDR concept is new to the market. It doesn't have a lot of competition. As of now, we don't have a lot of user input. If it's on the market for a few more years, I'm sure people will have more feedback. We do our own documentation and share the whitepapers with our clients. I don't find Fortinet to be a difficult tool. The reporting is good and designed in a way that even a newcomer can use it easily. As of now those clients who have migrated from other security vendors don't have a lot of challenges. The clients appreciate the…

Straightforward, easy to maintain, and works as per our expectations

What is our primary use case?

We had a ransomware attack in 2017, and that's when we went with enSilo, which is now called FortiEDR. It helps us to detect the hash files and all that. So far, it's really good. It detects any kind of anomaly. If any installation is happening, it checks the process and everything else and lets us know how it works.

Pros and Cons

  • "It notifies us if there's any suspicious file on any PC. If any execution or similar kind of thing is happening, it just alerts us. It doesn't only alert. It also blocks the execution until we allow it. We check whether the execution is legitimate or not, and then approve it or keep it blocked. This gives us a little bit of control over this mechanism. Fortinet FortiEDR is also very straightforward and easy to maintain."
  • "They can include the automation for the realtime updates. We have a network infrastructure with remote sites. Whenever they send updates, they are not automated. We have to go into the console and push those updates. I wish it was more automated. The update file is currently around 31 MB. It could be smaller."

What other advice do I have?

Overall, we are quite happy with this product. It basically works the way we want it since we have installed it. It's as per expectations. I would rate Fortinet FortiEDR a nine out of ten.

Easy to use dashboard and interface, and it's easy to create exceptions

What is our primary use case?

We would have used this solution for endpoint detection EDR, which we don't currently have. We wanted to see how it works with the discovery of the history of some things that might come up.

Pros and Cons

  • "Exceptions are easy to create and the interface is easy to follow with a nice appearance."
  • "The SIEM could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Fortinet FortiEDR an eight out of ten.

Automation saves us time; forensic detailing and memory exfiltration are great for separate analysis

What is our primary use case?

We use this product to deploy to all the clients we have to monitor any kind of suspicious activities occurring on the end points besides antivirus. This will kind of automate their response basically with the EDR. I'm a security analyst and we are customers of Fortinet.

Pros and Cons

  • "Ability to get forensics details and also memory exfiltration."
  • "Detections could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

This is definitely a good product and will make your life easier. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

Is stable and scalable but limited in the number of details it provides

Pros and Cons

  • "It is stable and scalable."
  • "The amount of usage, the number of details we get, or the number of options that can be tweaked is limited in comparison to that with other EDR solutions"

What other advice do I have?

For some organizations, FortiEDR is good enough, but for others, it's not. It depends on the organization's infrastructure. I would rate Fortinet FortiEDR at six on a scale from one to ten.
