In a multi-account/multi-tenant environment, GuardDuty often alerts us to possible malicious traffic before it becomes an issue. The ability to automatically enable GuardDuty creates baseline security which is crucial when an account is first created. It also helps greatly in environments where other users are able to create resources as often GuardDuty alerts us to insecure resources we did not know about. It can however sometimes be a little overzealous with its assessments alerting on benign activity which then requires suppression rules.

Our customer base is SMB so I can not speak about a larger customer base or organization. I have customers with 3 end points behind the SW and customers with 200 end points behind the SW. The biggest confusion on selection is the WAN / LAN throughput. Once you understand the limitations and select the correct product I have been happy with the product on a wide range of customers. It is a bit pricey for a small operation but if they are handling sensitive data it is very cost effective.

Support from SW is superior. End of discussion. Fortinet support was lacking in product knowledge and was noting but reading from a script. SW, if the T1 can not answer I get to T2 immediately. Never an issue to get a resolution in minutes, not hours or days. The staff knows their limits and escalates without question.

  • I trust the product to protect my customer base.
  • They do not differentiate themselves very well. It is a difficult sell cycle.
