"Fortinet, kind of like walmart - good for the price but not great"

What do you like best?

The centralized management platform works fairly well, and the fact that licensing is simple (as in, UTM and VPNs of all sorts come with the default licensing) is nice. Also the price is a good selling point - it is a lot easier to get a small client to pay 200 bucks for a firewall than it is to get them to pay for a cisco ASA, for example.

Configuration wise, it is fairly easy to configure VPNs, routing, new interfaces (and vlans), and add new rules through the GUI. The GUI is fairly lightweight and pretty intuitive. You can also do a lot of troubleshooting through the GUI.

What do you dislike?

When you turn on all of the UTM options, the firewall slows down and processes traffic much slower. Also, there have been a lot of issues with the url filtering service in my experience. Also, fortigates do not like nested group objects, they will cause all kinds of configuration errors on some versions.

However, my biggest complaint would be the CLI. The policy configuration is pretty clunky as it is in xml style format. You have to type every line one by one, and there isn't a very quick way to add a large number of new objects. For example, to add one object it looks something like this:

configure firewall address object

edit "object"

set subnet 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0

set associated-interface DMZ

next

end

The first and last lines don't need to be repeated, but the other 4 would need to be repeated for each object.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you cannot justify spending more money on a firewall, then a fortigate firewall will not be a bad idea.

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

For a firewall, it is OK. Not great, but not terrible. I could name half a dozen worse firewalls off the top of my head. Clients like them for the price.

What Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Install the client software on multiple devices to test reliability.

Security connections between remote workers and a central data center.

"Albatross of a tool"

What do you like best?

Log file detail and dearth of information. Lumping servers into 'Business Service Groups' is handy for alerting and organization.

What do you dislike?

Server monitoring is convoluted. Easy process of accessing hardware information is not in the interface. Object discovery is a multiple step process that required updating info in several places for any updates.

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

Troubleshooting any issues with log files - firewall, proxy, user access
