Good incident management and great integrations but needs to improve its on-premises appliances

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for its integration capabilities.

Pros and Cons

  • "The incident management on the solution is very good. You get a lot of detailed information about an incident. You also get a lot of documentation in connection with the CVI or integration."
  • "Symantec appliances need improvement. The whole appliance environment is a robust system and it needs a massive amount of storage space. If you have to increase or speed up the background storage it's a pretty complicated process. The scalability and sizing is critical, and if you do it wrong you run into issues pretty quickly."

What other advice do I have?

We have been platinum partners with Symantec. The solution is at a bit of a crossroads due to its acquisition by Broadcom and they changed their EDI solution because Broadcom had an EDI network solution too. There were EDI scanners in the network, but it's on the side. Now they have a new direction in this area, due to the fact that they want to solve these processes only from the endpoint side.

Straightforward installation, but better interprocess and real-time memory visibility are needed

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is endpoint synchronization. I deal with all of the security vendors, and this is one of the products that I have experience with. The deployment is on-premises and is used in conjunction with our firewall.

Pros and Cons

  • "From an application perspective, this solution is stable."
  • "The memory check needs to be improved, giving better visibility into the run-time memory."

What other advice do I have?

When it comes to Fortinet, the users are not a big fan of their current model. Bit by bit, they pull you into to buying the entire security fabric. You have to buy a lot of product, and a lot of licenses, to enable all of the features which will help you to secure your environment. This is unlike other solutions, where you have the ability to buy a particular product and it will do its job from the start to the end. I'm thinking that they are trying to move to the McAfee model, where everything is a separate license that needs to be added. You have to buy a lot of product to get the perfect…

Easy to manage, scalable and stable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily implement the solution for our clients.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is very stable. I would estimate it's 99.9% stable, if not more."
  • "Technical support is something that needs improvement."

What other advice do I have?

We are an integrator as well as a partner. I'd rate the solution ten out of ten.
