What is most valuable?

* FortiAnalyzer (SIEM) integration is useful for us because we collect in this device almost all the security events from the network. We are using exact URL (no default page, no home page) for our e-banking services for enterprises. Then we... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It helped us initially publish e-banking services, but after a few months, we discovered it was an easy way to deploy other internal websites, published in an intranet style.

What needs improvement?

I think Fortinet must make an effort in terms of upgrade procedures. There were some troubles upgrading from 5.2.x to 5.3.x, and the problem appeared again upgrading from 5.3.x to 5.5.x: * Upgrading from 5.2.x to 5.3.x. Fortinet provides a... more»

What is most valuable?

In my opinion, the following features of FortiWeb 4000E are the most valuable & were appreciated during all my previous engagements: * 20 Gbps appliance throughput makes it useful for large enterprise deployment and also meets future... more»

How has it helped my organization?

* Operations overhead (administration and escalation management) has been brought down, as Fortinet provides flexible and customizable reporting options with the FortiAnalyzer appliance for logging and reporting. * Rule creation and fine... more»

What needs improvement?

Product support is a major concern; if FortiWeb wants to become a market leader, then it must provide better after-sales services. The automatic policy learning feature also needs some improvement, as using this feature leads to more false... more»

What is most valuable?

We use them for VPN, standard layer 4, web filtering, anti-malware and DLP – they are used as our perimeter firewall solution.

How has it helped my organization?

I would not say it has improved how we function because I think that other leading vendors firewalls are as good. However, I do think that FortiGate can do it at a much better price point than, for example, Cisco ASA or Palo Alto.

What needs improvement?

The CLI could be improved by removing all default syntax from the config. The debugging of crypto VPN is not as informative as other vendors’ firewalls. The GUI is also not as good as some vendors, but overall as a package and considering... more»

What is most valuable?

* It supports OWASP top 10. As you can see, the attack types are mapped to OWASP top 10. The policy creation always follows the procedure: * Create first the objects needed. * Assemble the policy. * The GUI interface is intuitive. I have... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The portal has a lot of vulnerabilities, which are not easy to solve quickly. The device has helped us to prevent exploitation of them while we are working on the code.

What needs improvement?

The signatures are very basic and prone to firing false positives. For example, FortiWeb detects this string as an attack because it detects "perl" in it: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 This is a false positive. If the signature was more complex,... more»

What is most valuable?

* Web services signature: Helped us on secure key exchange, authentication and integrity of the transmissions. * Virtual patching: We publish many web services through FortiWeb. We are able to quickly resolve vulnerabilities. * Layer 7 server... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Before FortiWeb deployment, we were using a combination of commercial and open-source products. It was a hassle for the administrators, due to which some areas were unintentionally overlooked and caused many problems. With FortiWeb, we got a... more»

What needs improvement?

Usually patches and version upgrades are really buggy, so we usually wait about one month for a stable release to upgrade. They need to improve the new version/patch delivery mechanism. For example, if a patch fixes one functionality for web... more»
