Likelihood to Recommend

Auvik

Auvik works great for discovering a network, listing assets, documenting device connectivity details, and capturing configurations of many common network devices. It is more suited for larger or complex networks. It is probably overkill for small, flat networks with only a handful of network devices. We are very satisfied with their support.

FortiManager

FortiManager is well suited for any environment with multiple and dispersed FortiGate firewalls. It will not manage other firewall platforms. Therefore, you either have to use multiple centralized management software, one for each firewall vendor, or invest in alternative tools such as Tufin, AlgoSec, FireMon, SolarWinds, etc. However, you will not get a more inclusive tool for your FortiGate firewalls other than FortiManager.

Cons

Auvik

  • Connector is somewhat difficult to install.
  • Lacks true network monitoring capabilities.
  • Needs a better database of equipment and what should be monitored on said equipment right out of the box.
Jeff Aiken | TrustRadius Reviewer

FortiManager

  • Support contracts are difficult to manage or make changes to
  • Next Generation subscriptions are managed individually, i.e. pegged to specific firewalls
  • Cumbersome to bring existing firewalls to be covered under a single contract

Alternatives Considered

Auvik

We felt like Auvik provided much more detailed connectivity information than Traverse. In our specific environment, Auvik was less expensive than Traverse.I really meant IT Glue's product, Network Glue. My techs were already in love with Auvik as this product was being developed. We use IT Glue for documentation and we might choose different if we had to make the decision today.We've used What's Up Gold in the past and it was great as a monitoring product. I'm sure they have continued to develop more capabilities, but Auvik was stronger to us when focused on primarily network devices.

FortiManager

FortiManager is the best choice for managing numerous FortiGate firewalls. It allows for easy integration into ServiceNow and automates simple repetitive tasks that are very straightforward. Role-based access control is easy to enable and you can get quite granular with user permissions. Administrative Domains help segregate firewall management and compliance within the FortiManager console, by almost any classification method that makes sense to your organization.
