What is most valuable?

The combination of IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) and the antivirus feature included in that firewall provides a unified advantage. We need one solution and not two. That is one of the main features our customers are really interested… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us a good product to offer our clients that fits with our local economy.

What needs improvement?

Mainly, I would say they need to improve the updates. The updates of the OS for Fortinet seem to require a lot of bandwidth. It would be good if they required fewer resources. Also, they might improve the frequency of the releases. I say… more »

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

We previously used Axway. We switched to Kong because of its reliability and scalability. We have a lot of other platforms that we're using as the API integration platform, but from the enterprise architect's perspective, Kong is the standard.
