Good security console and great support

What do you like best?

Fortigate is a console for the administration of security equipment, for my opinion the most complete and simple to use for its graphical interface.

Powerful management console for security equipment and provides the tools accepted for better firewall management and among other equipment..

I recommend this platform or security equipment administration tool since it provides the facility to manage security and protection parameters in your network

This security tool helps in the administration of security policies from outside access to your intranet, and also continues the ease of controlling the access of viruses or intruders.

The tool gives you the opportunity to run reports of intruders or attempts to enter your local network giving a detailed IP and its location.

The good support you provide with your license for greater use of the security tool.

Protect several threats to your local network enter these malware malware intruders, any other anezas all this with the use of white or black list defined in the blockade.

It contains the option to implement VPN and administration and access.

What do you dislike?

The cost of this console is quite expensive and the support also but it is worth it with how robust it is in your security administration

Fantastic product and support

What do you like best?

For me, the fortigate just works. I have not really been able to complain about a situation in which I wasn't able to get something working on my own or in the end, support helped and they have always been very knowledgable.

What do you dislike?

Some of their logging can be a little cumbersome to decipher and sift through. If you have fortiview internally it would make it easier but we don't have that product so our logs are purely deciphered on our siem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We've considered moving to other alternatives such as Palo Alto but couldn't justify the cost. The fortigate appliance along with the IDS feature has been everything we've needed to this point.

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

I've not only been able to have it protect my environment, but I'm also able to segragate network spaces out with it and am able to get very granular in policies that I can create. There are a number of features you can turn on which will definitely help your environment not be so vulnerable in today's landscape.

What Firewall solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Fortigate's, keep out the trash

What do you like best?

Nice gui, robust CLI, webfiltering is very customizable, sslvpn feature is great coupled with forticlient.

What do you dislike?

A bit pricey, but worth it if you're tired of the Cisco machines. Chatty with the email alerts. No easy option to drop incoming traffic without an alert every time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Their support can't be beat. Next day service on all dead boxes.

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

Using as our main firewalls/routers, and also as a part of our SSLVPN solution. Networking all branches with these via BGP tunnels

Solid product. Good UTM solutions that does not break the bank

What do you like best?

Amount of features. I am happy to have a good UTM product that is providing use with the ability to content filter . / Application firewall and IPS.

What do you dislike?

A few small bugs have been found during our deployment. But all seemed to have a solid workaround. The ability to see traffic in real time could be better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Buy the high end appliances. Its better to plan for 5+ years outs needs.

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

IPS / Content Filtering / Application Firewall. The biggest benefit is the ability to manage a large number of firewalls at once with the global management tool.

Fortigate firewalls

What do you like best?

My main job function is to manage Fortigate firewalls. They are very easy to make minor adjustments to web content filters and feature a robust Unified Threat Management system.

What do you dislike?

Setting up SSL and IPsec VPN tunnels is not very intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They're easy to manage once they're setup, but can be tricky to implement originally.

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

We use Fortigate firewalls to manage LAN to WAN and WAN to LAN traffic, as well as VPN access for both SSL and IPsec VPN tunnels.
