FortiGate - Enterprise Firewall

Great, flexible firewall solution that is easy to use.

I was concerned when moving from a proven product like Cisco to a relatively new product. Fortinet has proven to be an extremely solid and reliable product. The Fortigate solution has provided us with a greater level of protection as well as simple monitoring and reporting tools. The GUI interfaces are intuitive and management has been easy to learn and straightforward.

Fortigate products are easy to install and manage. It is also easy to find articles on the web to solve issues and make specific configurations on any type of Fortigate product. The device performs well even with every security feature turned on.

Great vendor to work with and a wide variety of products and services to achieve our goals

Great account management, always helpful and good at getting back to us when they don't know something straight away. Technical account managers are very knowledgeable and eager to help us implemenet new and innovative solutions for our customers. Wide range of devices to choose from and price per protected mbps is a lot more cost effective than other vendors we looked at when choosing a new enterprise firewall vendor.

The Fortigate was easy to install and continues to be easy to manage. There is a ton of kb articles on the web for almost anything you want to do with this device. The device performs well even with every security feature turned on. The presales team went above and beyond his role to help get us any information we needed to get the device implemented.

Switch over was easy, but software upgrades have been a mess

They need to do a better job of testing their releases

FortiGate - Enterprise Firewall

Deployment was satisfactory

We had a learning curve with the product since we migrated from the Cisco ASA Firewall - now that we have completed 10 deployments of 40 it is going much smoother.

FortiGate - Enterprise Firewall

Implementation was complicated

The project did not fully reached it's potential. We have struggled with their support and licensing. They keep throwing in new architecture that caused more outages. We kept asking for their professional services but they keep giving us the same sale's engineer. He's a good guy but he does not know everything. But we need the project to get done as we are nearing the deadline.

Good product, great support

We have been through three hardware refreshes/ life cycles of the product line and numerous code revissions. Sales, engineering, and servcie have all been excellent. They are very focused on the industry and their customers.
