What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature in this solution is the ability to disseminate between the user entering some wrong value to the field, and a suspicious actor trying to exploit some known vulnerability. This part of the intelligence and… more»

What needs improvement?

We would like to know more about the integration with the hardware or security products, such as Gemalto, because we need to move to that point. But, from what I understand, we haven't looked at the market to see how this can be done yet.

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

The solution gives us the best price to performance ratio.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did use another solution, but, compared with the competition, we got the best ratio of performance to price when we chose Fortinet. We could use F5, for example, but the price is not as good.

What other advice do I have?

The interface has been a pain in the past but now with the later version, 2.2, the user behavior analysis has improved. Before when you want to deploy an application, for example, you needed to have a login page and make sure to search for… more»

What is most valuable?

It's the extra security that is the most valuable feature. You have insight into your traffic. There are some great insights into what utilities hackers are trying to exploit. It blocks a lot of stuff from the internet.

What needs improvement?

The solution is rather complicated. If you know what to do, it's not bad, but it's complicated for a first time user to configure the solution. What I'd like to improve are the custom signatures. If you want a good security solution, you have to get in kicking high for things that are getting… more»

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

You can set up licensing on a monthly or yearly basis. I'm not sure about pricing.

What other advice do I have?

Every external solution acceptable for work will use FortiWeb. We do have three or four FortiWeb solutions now and if there is anything we need to share through the internet, it's going to be through FortiWeb. In terms of advice, I'd say take a good look at the support side of the help documents… more»

What is most valuable?

It depends on the project and what the customer is looking for.

How has it helped my organization?

Fortiweb improved way people work and access internal resources based on http/https communication.

What needs improvement?

First of all, upgrade path should be introduced for scaling up or down VM deployment. Second, they need to include better wizards for publishing common applications like MS Exchange. .

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

The license cost depends on the size of the box or the size of the solution. It can go from few K Euros to a few hundred thousand Euros a year depending on your size.

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking to be partner with Fortinet, you have to buy licenses. Not even VMs are free to partners. Fortiweb in essence, needs to become part of Fortigate. Fortinet is not suitable for SMB customers since you have to deploy several… more»

What is most valuable?

All the features that FortiGate contains are very suitable for our business. We work with other products in Fortinet: FortiWeb, FortiSandbox, FortiMail, and FortiCache. We use all UTM features like… more»

How has it helped my organization?

There's a high school with many branches in our country. I configured it for them and they are very happy with Fortinet. Fortinet's performance is very good.

What needs improvement?

New releases and old releases have some bugs, some features do not work as good as we want but every new release the Fortinet team fixes up problems. I don't have anything to say about what to do to… more»

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

The licensing policy is very good. Our customers are very happy with that.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eleven out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When our customers ask about Palo Alto we can sell them a Palo Alto but we try to explain that Fortinet is a great solution.

What is most valuable?

SSL Offloading, as it simplifies the public certificate handling and brings additional protection features. Also, L-7 protection, as it makes possible to protect… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Other than the additional security with exploit protection, we have simpler certificate handling, as we can keep internal servers using internal certificates continuously… more»

What needs improvement?

* Centralized management of multiple devices, and GUI improvement, could reduce the learning curve. * The interface could have the interdependent elements arranged… more»

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

Keep a loose margin between your actual bandwidth and the product sizing when using hardware appliances. Only virtual machines are upgradable to larger sizes.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

The previous vendor discontinued its product.

What other advice do I have?

I rate it eight out of 10. I understand that a 10 is for products that not only execute smoothly but are also easy to use and manage, even when used on a multi-site… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We acquired a Fortinet-based project, so we didn’t evaluate other ones.

What is most valuable?

FortiWeb offers machine learning in the latest product. Before that, there was an auto-learning feature. This fixed many problems. There are no false negatives now. Fortinet FortiWeb now has artificial intelligence and machine learning.

How has it helped my organization?

With this product, you can secure all the Fortinet products together. I'm an entrepreneur. Most people fail in the publication of a firewall.

What needs improvement?

What I would like to see improved in Fortinet FortiWeb will probably be included in the next release. The legal feature needs better step-by-step use of the form. We use the FortiGate guidebook for step-by-step instructions. But the FortiWeb guidebook is only is a demonstration kit which is not… more»

What other advice do I have?

In the version of Fortinet FortiWeb that we have, it does not include the scanner. We cannot access every feature. If you have all the popular products, you can use the system perfectly to connect everything. Fortinet can improve the security firebase in support for HTTPS and the CPU with additional… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the access policies and how Fortinet gets the compilation done is really good.

How has it helped my organization?

When we had Cisco we had around thirty thousand entries on our firewalls. Now we are down to three thousand. Fortinet has a mechanism to detect all of your entries which are not used, and it can clean it up.

What needs improvement?

I would like to have an antivirus option.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used Cisco. We switched because all they are is a brand name. It was a failure. We gave it a year to improve the product and it didn't so we switched.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a seven out of ten. A seven and not a ten because of the antivirus issue.

What is most valuable?

All of its feature are valuable to us. If you ask me which is the most valuable, it is the load balancing, then I would say the security features. Publishing OWA is also a… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We were able to protect our web servers from outside attacks. It has really helped us with publishing servers which were published on Microsoft Forefront TMG.

What needs improvement?

We started with FortiWeb400C, then we did an upgrade to FortiWeb 400D. I had some small problems when I was upgrading firmware. After the upgrade, some of my certificates… more»

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

It really pays off to buy licences for multiple years.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not use a WAF before. We used Microsoft TMG, but it is not a WAF.

What other advice do I have?

It is a really good product. It is worth using in your network.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No.
