What is most valuable?

The load balancing of the solution is excellent. The QoS (Quality of Service) provided is very impressive.

What needs improvement?

When it comes to the overall product, I don't see places for improvement. It's excellent. The cost of the solution is too high. It should be adjusted to be more affordable for companies. Right now, I… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is quite expensive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use other options before we chose Fortigate Cloud. It was the first one we chose.

What other advice do I have?

I'm a user of the solution; I don't have a relationship to Fortigate. I'm not a reseller or integrator. I don't really have specific advice for other companies considering trying it, however, I think… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We had a look at Silver Peak and a few other products. However, we heard from the reviews and at other expos that FortiGate would be the right solution for what we required, so we chose to try them… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the stability, it's actually tailored for that. It has many useful tools, such as managing wireless connections. If you have access points from the same vendor then you can manage them through… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Also, it covers all of security use cases that you might have as a firewall.

What needs improvement?

Reporting is an area that can be enhanced. It is not always beneficial, and you have to buy an additional license to get the type of reports that you're looking for. There are often releases of the new firmware, which requires upgrades… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is mid-ranged, it's not very expensive but it's not the cheapest or most affordable in the market.

What other advice do I have?

When you have FortiGate, you subscribe to the FortiCloud in order to have certain intelligence. This solution is good but there are many areas that need improvements. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

It's quite easy to use, and it's easy to find the necessary information from the web. They have the means to learn how to use Fortinet.

What needs improvement?

The initial set up could be simplified. When evaluating other solutions, I learned that Sophos for example is able to have the endpoint interact with the firewall. If something goes wrong or if the endpoint is not behaving as it should, it… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fee. The license does not include many of the features that are necessary, which means that you have to pay extra for them.

What other advice do I have?

If you are new to Fortinet, do some research on how to configure it, either through documentation or watching videos. Recently, I have learned that they have training available and offer certification material and testing on the web. I… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated other products. We chose Fortinet because it was the preferred option.

What is most valuable?

The solution is definitely stable, which is its most valuable feature. It's easy to use and the fact that I can schedule the report to come to my inbox at set times is very convenient for me.

What needs improvement?

The solution should allow users to keep the data for longer than the current periods. I can't get any historic data after more than a month. I would like to be able to, after a year, look for trends from the past 12 months. It would make things much easier.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution. This is the first time we've implemented a product like this.

What other advice do I have?

We use the latest version of the solution. I'd recommend the solution. It's working really well for us and is completely meeting our expectations. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The sandboxing feature is very important.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a SIEM bundled together with this because customers are looking into better reporting and more proactive security solutions. In the next release, it would benefit this solution to have more advanced monitoring capabilities such as predictive analysis and reporting.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Some of our customers purchase yearly licenses, while others purchase subscriptions that are three years in length. The price is over $1,000 USD annually.

What other advice do I have?

FortiCloud helps to enhance the security posture of any organization, and I definitely recommend looking into it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The solution is very easy to use. The technical support is very good. You only need to have a good internet connection in order to use it.

What needs improvement?

When you login to Forticloud you get directed to the Global site, even if you are based in Europe and you have to switch manually to the European site which can be confusing when you are not familiar to Forticloud, especially in the beginning and when you want to setup your first device. This should… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not previously use a different solution. We've been very satisfied with this service and don't plan to change.

What other advice do I have?

We use the solution fairly regularly, on a daily basis. We're partners and resellers of the solution. I'd recommend the solution. It's very good. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
