Fortinet FortiSwitch - Secure Access Scalability

This solution is scalable. We are a small site running only three switches, but from what I have heard, it's pretty easy to scale because of the looping feature. It uplinks and can automatically be used from your management console. I haven't done a big system, so I don't know what that would be like. My entire company is running on Fortinet, and we have two people managing the entire environment for over forty users. View full review »

We have clients who use the same product with a different number of users — between 20 to 100 users. I do not see any problem with performance or scalability in different implementations or different network architectures. View full review »

FortiSwitch can be managed and controlled by FortiGate. The configuration is done on FortiGate. To scale, you just need to purchase some other switches, even they are not really the same model of the one deployed. With two or three clicks, we can scale them to the other switch. With the university example, where it is not fully functional, there are almost 2000 or 3000 students who are using the access points to access the WiFi, which are connected to the switch.

With my experience I think the scalability is pretty good for medium size businesses. View full review »

There aren't special features that resolve any scalable requirements. There are scalable possibilities with other features of the 4G Gates unit but this is not so scalable. View full review »

The solution can scale, but there are some limitations. Our partner just started using the solution so I'm not sure how many people they have on it at this time. View full review »
