Fortinet FortiMail Previous Solutions

Previously we used a different solution. We switched to FortiMail because our old solution was not good, or stable. We used many solutions before, including Sophos Email, and when you have a good experience with a product you will not go back to the old products or switch to other products unless there are big advantages. Emails were not accurate, some emails on the first day were in your inbox and another day, they are quarantined, and then other days they were not being delivered. There were limitations in the configuration and troubleshooting. We have always had SLAs, but not with the company, it was with the brand. For example, we had support from Cisco and Sophos between one and three years. We directly open cases with them. Two cases were not closed. I had completed my troubleshooting and solved the issue, while they were not able to solve it. Cisco was too complicated, not user-friendly, and not designed for emails in that complex environment. For an easier environment, they were fine, but, not for a complex environment, with different main servers, and different platforms. Cisco is also more expensive than others. I don't know why, especially now, with technology in the hands of every brand. Cisco is not the one and only, but now, it is the last and only. This is why we are no longer using Cisco. We did have a good experience with Cisco. Everything was tested. I asked the suppliers, the brand owners in the region, to come over to see us. I didn't just go to Fortinet FortiMail directly.

Before using Fortinet FortiMail, I was using the Symantec product for anti-spam. It was not the full anti-spam product and it was not very good at what I hoped it would do. In the version I had, they give you a partial feature and not a feature limitation. I looked at other alternatives and think FortiMail is a better solution. View full review »

We were using Microsoft before this solution but there's a limit to what it could do and we needed more protection. View full review »

My company previously used a software but when using an anti-spam solution as a hardware, it's better than an application, because an application could be corrupted. View full review »

We used Trend Micro Gateway and another McAfee gateway, but Fortinet is a good product. We were using McAfee, the email gateway security filtering, anti-spam filtering. View full review »

Prior to this solution, we used products from Cisco and Trend Micro. We switched mainly because of the price. View full review »
