Fortinet FortiGate IPS Pros

The initial setup is straightforward.
We have not had to reach out to FortiGate support yet and that is a pretty good track record.
The VPN used with the product is secure and reliable without lag.

It is a good product. It does what we want it to do so. I didn't find many false-positives or things like that. We mainly use the IPS and URL filtering features, and they are pretty good.

They can probably improve the reporting feature. Reporting and report alerting are the main key features of this solution. They can always find ways to improve these.

Its performance can be better. We have had performance issues in the past, but we sometimes tend to find that it is more related to what we do in our network than anything else. It is quite a good product, and there isn't much to improve.

It would be better if they had a dashboard where we could see what attacks were happening. It would be good to see who's trying to get into our network.

The solution could improve the configuration, there are times the configuration is missing.
