What needs improvement?

As far as improvement, I would like to see additional troubleshooting tools. It would be useful to have different types of reporting so that you can monitor how your emails are flowing and not just have to go to the logs and see them one by… more»

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

Licensing is on a yearly basis. FortiCare and FortiMail licenses are for the 24/7 support and the email monitoring service. It comes to around 4000 dollars per year. You pay only for those things that you license and there is no additional… more»

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

I used to work with Sophos Email Filter. I used to work with Websense Email Security Gateway. I used to work with Symantec. I also worked with Microsoft Exchange Edge. I have the experience for all of these and mostly the change had to do… more»

What other advice do I have?

Overall, I recommend this solution to other people. But in addition, I recommend a few additional steps before just accepting a recommendation. First, they should do a POC (proof of concept). Taking the time to do this is one of the main… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We used to have Sophos, we used to have Websense, we used to have Symantec, and we used to have Microsoft Exchange Edge. These are from my personal experience, not from the company I'm working with. But in a way drawing from past experience… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of the solution are the antispam, antivirus, and the rules that you can manage inside the system. There is a lot of configuration that we use… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I understand a lot about spamming and antivirus and I have improved and increased my knowledge about the security of the system.

What needs improvement?

The initial setup should be simplified. It was very involved and the influence of the setup for the delivery of the mail was quite complicated. The setup of the rules can… more»

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

The licensing is for three years. In the beginning, we did not pay monthly, it was paid once for three years. Other than the payment of the service for the consultant… more»

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

Previously, we were using a different solution. Lockers an Italian solution but it did not send as well as FortiMail. We were able to resolve our issues using FortiMail… more»

What other advice do I have?

You can concentrate on the rules and not on what is inside the system because all is managed from Fortinet. Fortinet has a large network that monitors the system around… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We made other comparisons with other solutions. We chose FortiMail because we could implement it with FortiGate and FortiAnalyzer so that we could use only one brand for… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are email ATP and Malware Analysis.

What needs improvement?

The URL filtering, inside the email, for example, when you receive an email, or I can send you a link inside the email copy, email security can detect to see if I am a hacker, a virus or something malicious. It will spoof my email. When sending or receiving an email, the engine is supposed to scan… more»

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

It's on a subscribed basis.

What other advice do I have?

No one will do the installation or implementation for FortiMail, as it will be done by the vendors. Fortinet will do the installation and the implementation, this is the email security, not the email itself. If you have an email like Gmail for example, and you want to apply security layers to secure… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the low price and its ability to integrate with other Fortinet products. Fortinet has the concept of a security fabric that includes FortiMail and FortiGate, and everything works well together. Some solutions… more»

What needs improvement?

The downside of this solution is that it is difficult to implement policies on FortiMail. As an example, if a customer manages FortiMail using a different SCL, it is difficult to implement in the customer's box and FortiMail.

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

It's a low budget solution. You only have to purchase one license for multiple participants. With Cisco, you purchase one license for ten users.

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

I have experience with Cisco hardware solutions.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution and others based on my customer's needs. I would rate FortiMail a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The encryption features are most valuable to us.

What needs improvement?

I've not been able to use more than two domains in the back end. I like to view logs for the different domains. If I add any other domain I'm not able to get a proper cPanel for that domain. I am… more»

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

It should cost around $60,000. We bought it as a bundle, so everything comes together in the license. That is standard.

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

I used Check Point which has a feature for email security. I switched because Check Point didn't have a separate solution for email, it was just bundled together with their firewall.

What other advice do I have?

From my experience, this tool is able to protect the network. I would definitely recommend this solution. I would rate it as nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated IronPort from Cisco. There's an email security solution from Cisco.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the advanced threat protection.

What needs improvement?

This solution is expensive, so the pricing could be improved to be more competitive. I would like to see more advanced sandbox features, where you can actually download to a machine where you can test.

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

The price of this solution could be more competitive.

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

We use the Cisco security stack as well. The only reasons we use both have to do with scalability and price.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anyone who is implementing this solution is to make sure that it is always kept up to date with the latest in threat protection. That is the most important thing. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The implementation was very professional. There are a lot of features I can get through Fortinet and FortiMail, such as security. FortiGuard is the most reliable and professional mitigation center to handle incidents and risks that I have… more»

What needs improvement?

The dashboard could use improvement. However, I noticed there was a feature for auditing added to Fortinet in the last update. That is the only thing relevant to me, as the information security manager at my site. I gather information about… more»

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

When we're talking about pricing, other products have about the same price. That is normal.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it as nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

This solution is used for IT. We made a technical evaluation between two or three products. We looked at their messaging, or mail service. IT made the decision that FortiGate is the best company in my country, in terms of the amount of… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the antispam and URL analysis. FortiMail Cloud is very fast.

What needs improvement?

Networking should be simplified.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to first ask what you want from your network and from your resources. Decide what it is what you want to achieve and then design your solution. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not put serious thought into solutions by other vendors because after looking at Fortinet, we found that it was quite simple, good, and full of features.
