Fortinet FortiMail Valuable Features

Group IT Manager For ME Region at Malia Group
This a user-friendly solution. Troubleshooting is very simple because you can see where the email was not delivered and why it would be considered as spam. For the IT team, it is important, because when they are asked by management why their email was not sent or why was this email that was sent to me was considered as spam, they have the details that are needed to explain why. It is much better than IronPort for Cisco and Websense. For now, as per our experience with FortiMail in handling a large number of emails and spams as well, in the past three years, we have been protected and saved from any attacks from the outside. This is one of the main reasons we will continue to use FortiMail. View full review »

One of the features I like the best and find most valuable is the gray list feature. You can mark a trusted domain to reduce interruptions and other domains you are not sure that you can trust you put in a gray list. The mechanism of this feature can greatly decrease the number of spam emails and helps determine which are under more scrutiny, but it is also not a total block. You can put domains as blacklisted which just blocks delivery. This mechanism and level of control are awesome in FortiMail. View full review »

We have several of these solutions in place. We do have, as of late, spam outbreaks. This solution has been pretty reliable in dealing with them. The solution can scale. The solution is mostly stable. View full review »

The most valuable aspects of this solution are that it protects us from spam and phishing attacks. We had a lot of attacks coming in and then we deployed this solution and they stopped. We no longer have any spam or phishing issues. View full review »

We have used the solution as a mandatory tool in our infrastructure. It's kept some of the spam email and stuff like that out. As a security layer, we've have added Fortimail for security as the mail gateway. View full review »

This solution has a very clean user interface. It's agnostic to whatever environment you're using behind it. My email servers are HCL Domino servers now and it's easy to implement - they have very good sandbox for checking email without the danger of opening them. View full review »

Manager IT at OTE
I think the spamming feature is very valuable. One of the features of FortiMail is the sandbox. If any suspicious or malicious thing is detected, it uploads to the FortiMail, and then to the database, and then it's checked. Once it's confirmed that the mail is good content, then it's moved inside and forwarded to its destination. So the sandboxing is a really valuable feature. View full review »
