Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Fortinet FortiGate IPS.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
It would be better if they had a dashboard where we could see what attacks were happening. It would be good to see who's trying to get into our network.
Its performance can be better. We have had performance issues in the past, but we sometimes tend to find that it is more related to what we do in our network than anything else. It is quite a good product, and there isn't much to improve.
I think they could improve the monitoring.
The user interface needs a bit of upgrading. Pricing could be better. Customers are looking for 24/7 protection, but it's not as critical in the end. The pricing is preventing them for adopting it so they should be competitive.
They can probably improve the reporting feature. Reporting and report alerting are the main key features of this solution. They can always find ways to improve these.
I have been pretty satisfied with the application as it is. I am pleased with the layout and how everything is integrated. Sometimes we will have a client who has a firewall that is not FortiGate, and often times we are able to convince them to switch over to using FortiGate as their solution because of our recommendations. On a little different subject, the software for antivirus that we usually use with FortiGate is called Webroot. I know that some of our Apple / Mac clients experience some issues with the integration of that product. The integration, in that case, is not seamless. That is an issue that could be addressed.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
I am making a comparative study among IDPS software tools that exist. I wish to know which one is best among the various Implementations networks tools that exist and their details specifications.
