Works great but has to improve

What do you like best?

what i like the best of this vpn software is that is really fast the conection and also very secure , the software itself is not difcult to install and easy to config.

What do you dislike?

What i did not like was the fact that to work correctly you have to install another pogramas you do not want , and the first time you are trying to conect with the VPN is not always at the first click

Recommendations to others considering the product

Is the solution you need for vpn access and other matter but is kind of expensive for litle companies

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We improve a lot from the oldest software because this one is a very secure way and let the user use his other tools to work without putting in danger the data integrity

Una buena herramienta para VPN

What do you like best?

Es rapido y muy seguro , me dejar abrir todas mis aplicaciones inclusive trabajar con otras vpn en conjunto sin necesidad de que haya conflicto. Viene en castellano lo cual es muy practivo para los hispano parlantes. Funciona muy bien en cualquier tipo de sistema operativo. El instalador por si solo es gratis pero para sacarle el jugo debe ser apropiadamente usado con sus paquetes

What do you dislike?

Lo que me desagrada que para que funcione biene debes instalar otras aplicaciones sin necesidad , ademas que su interfaz web no es lo mas rapido que hay . Otro detalle es que si expira la licencia , es imposible usarlo por ende se vuelve inutil trata de conectarse. No es una herramienta economica como paquete

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es sumamente efectivo pero no es muy barato , se ve mucho provecho se tiene un forest tecnologico grande con el cual las herramientas enteras realmente sirvend e ayuda para la comunicacion entre redes

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Usando esta herramienta he podido solventar el tema de poderme conectar desde cualquier sitio y la configuracion del mismo es muy simple , no toma mucho tiempo en tenerla trabajando , y el hecho de que trabaje bien sobre los 3 windows que tengo , 7 , 8 , 10 , pues para mi ha sido genial porque la configuracion no difiere casi nada

What Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Full firewall solution for all network sizes.

What do you like best?

Fortinet provides complete firewall, web filtering and log analysis with their FortiGate and FortiAnalyzer appliances. There are different models for any size of network.

Basic setup of he firewall is easy and intiutive but you can also take advantage of the webfilter, antivirus, application sensor modules. About the webfilter, Fortinet categorize every website and you just have to authorize or deny website categories to your user groups (local or active directory). Application senser allow you to block traffic from specified application kind (for example P2P softwares).

Firewall is quite standard with the classic objects (FQDN, interface, destination, action,...) and it also features some traffic shaper option.

It's also possible to have 2 appliances working together in high availability to ensure a permanent network connectivity even if one of the appliance crashes.

What do you dislike?

The web interface is sometimes slow and the beginning with the console is a bit difficult : searching rules / objects is not very intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're searching for a complete firewall, internet proxy, antivirus within one appliance you should give Fortinet (FortiGate) a try. If you need to analyze firewall or internet logs, then FortiAnalyzer is a nice product too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to filter internet acces of our users.

FortiClient for remote access

What do you like best?

I am able to work anywhere with FortiClient.

What do you dislike?

There are times when I am working that I have login back in multiple times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to work from home on the weekends to meet deadlines. When the weather is bad I can work from home and not have to drive to work. Because I am remoting in to my computer at work I have access to all the files and programs that I need.

FortiClient Review

What do you like best?

It is fairly simple to use, I must say. We use it for two county VPN connections and have had very few issues since the original version.

What do you dislike?

The software itself is fine with the newest version. The older versions were much more complicated. Also had a hard time finding the actual version we needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Find the correct version recommended by the County/Customer you are assisting.

A complete network and security management solution.

What do you like best?

I think that this is on of the the best way to implement an only-one solution for security in your network.

You can manage and control: Intrution Prevention System, SSL ispection, Firewall, Routing from different subnets ecc..

The user interface is very intuitive.

What do you dislike?

Depending on what has been my experience, the biggest problem was due to licensing: when the license is expired the navigation's controls are broken and even the navigation is blocked and obviously this creates inefficiency company and users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are multiple devices (phisical products) available, each device is suitable for a defined number of users.

As i've previously mentioned, keep a check (be careful) on the license period.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my previous work experience, we have centralized the entire network infrastructure, we used fortigate 800c for our company, and we have installed a lot of different devices for different customers with excellent results and satisfied customers.
