What is most valuable?

The analysis engine is a very valuable feature. It's quite up-to-date. However, I have not been able to compare it with another manufacturer's product so I'm not really sure whether it is the best. But we just use information that we get from Ratna, and the popularity of Fortinet itself.

What needs improvement?

I'm not sure whether anything needs improvement because I feel we need to have more experience with it. Perhaps if there were issues where customers complained, that's when I would be able to comment on what could be improved. So far, I haven't come across any specific features that need improving… more »

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

Most of our clients will opt for us to manage the setup for them because the security is fairly new. Most of our customers feel it is better to outsource the management of security services for their hardware so they can focus on the business. We have our own team of security experts that are fully… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend that for customers looking for a security solution, FortiSandbox is a good option. It's available on different platforms, both on and off-premises. It's easier for the customer to plug in any other security solution they may need to cover security issues depending on their… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature was the EDR, endpoint detection and response.

What needs improvement?

FortiSandbox could be improved. Fortinet took some time to include this feature and new technologies. They have to develop it more, because of the codes, the variables in the number of virtual environments and the number of virtual rules. They only provide eight or sometimes a maximum of fourteen… more »

What other advice do I have?

We are Platinum level partners, and I am a consultant. My advice would be to check the web reviews and you will find that Sandbox and FortiClient are not the best. If you check Gartner, you will see that McAfee and Microsoft are better. The setup and installation are easy and straightforward. If you… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Other companies, the competitors of Fortinet, offer this and in this area, they are better.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the protection and the way it works, the technology is what I like the most. The online information is very good.

What needs improvement?

The licensing can be very confusing. It needs to be simplified. When choosing FortiSandbox, there are three different types of Licenses, but it doesn’t specify that it is for FortiSandbox, so you have a box for Sandboxing, then a separate box for hardware, and a separate one for the Cloud.

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

The pricing is okay, but the licensing can be confusing. For example, if you purchase FortiSandbox, there are three different types of licensing. They have a separate FortiSandbox for the cloud, and for FortiGate. It can be quite confusing. For being an existing FortiGate customer, they started by… more »

What other advice do I have?

If you are an existing user of Fortinet and familiar with the interfaces of FortiGate and others then it will be easy for you. I don’t have a business relationship with Fortinet. I am a user. I would recommend this solution. I don’t have any complaints, so it is difficult to say what I would like to… more »

What is most valuable?

I like the integration between FortiSandbox and FortiClient with FortiGate.

What needs improvement?

It would be awesome if it can be integrated with other solutions. I would like to add one more feature because there are some tricks to deploy integration for all sorts in a product. I had that problem because when I had FortiSandbox, FortiLink, FortiClient, FortiManager, FortiLicense, there was one… more »

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

There are additional costs that aren't included in the licensing fee.

What other advice do I have?

I will definitely recommend this solution to others. On a scale of one to ten, my rating will be an eight. In the next version I would love to see more integration and more products from other vendors.

What is most valuable?

One of the valuable features is its ability to detect new threats.

How has it helped my organization?

We have seen a measurable decrease in the mean time to detect or respond to threats, on the order of 20 percent.

What needs improvement?

We would like to see the solution open to third parties.

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

There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

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

We did not have a previous solution. Using this solution is part of the way we do business. If you don't invest in the future you could be stopping your business.

What other advice do I have?

If you aren't sure about the solution, buy the cloud version first. You can use it in their cloud. The solution is a seven out of ten. The product is good but it could be… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other vendors.

What do you think of Fortinet FortiSandbox?

What is our primary use case?

This solution is used to connect to all of our other fabric, including Fortinet solutions such as FortiGate, FortiMail, and FortiClient. We have this solution deployed on a virtual machine.

What is most valuable?

The solution is very good because it catches a lot of threats in emails.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes, email remains in the queue, which is a problem that we have contacted support about. This is something that needs to be improved. The response time from technical support should be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have…

What is most valuable?

If there is malicious traffic that is going through the web application, we can halt that action, instead of waiting for the AntiVirus to take action. It also allows us to block them. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution.

What needs improvement?

The integration is limited. The solution needs to offer better integration with multiple vendors.

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

We didn't previously use a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model of the solution. I'd recommend the solution. All of its features are readily available. I'd rate it nine out of ten.

What do you think of Fortinet FortiSandbox?

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution on-premises and our primary use case is for end-point protection. 

What is most valuable?

What I find most valuable, is that it is easy to use. 

What needs improvement?

Something that needs to improve, is the end-point protection. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two to three years now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I believe the solution is very stable. We've had a crash once or twice, but it was because they were having problems on their side. Now it works pretty well and we don't have any issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I believe the solution is scalable. We currently have only four people using it at our office.

What is Fortinet FortiSandbox?

Today’s threats are increasingly sophisticated and often bypass traditional malware security by masking their malicious activity. A sandbox augments your security architecture by validating threats in a separate, secure environment. FortiSandbox offers a powerful combination of advanced detection, automated mitigation, actionable insight, and flexible deployment to stop targeted attacks and subsequent data loss. It's also a key component of our Advanced Threat Protection solution.
