FortiGuard Web Filtering Service is well-suited for an organisation that is able to funnel all its Internet connectivity through one device, i.e., the office environment - or perhaps where WFH workers are using a remote desktop or VPN. It allows management/IT to minimise risk by blocking websites that may be harmful, as well as websites that may enable data leakage, or even are websites that people ought not to be visiting in the workplace.

  • FortiGuard Web Filtering Service effectively protects websites. There is no need to install the root certificate on all PCs inside the network.
  • The database signature updates every hour, so we don't need to spend time updating the website to blacklist or whitelist.
  • It can protect very well. Whereas, some traditional proxies can not do that. For example, others can not block Youtube or Facebook.
  • It can also protect the search keyword, like in Youtube or other social media, Google, etc.

Cons
Check Point Software Technologies
  • The prompts for one time logins are rather lengthy and it takes around five minutes to go through all of the authentication required. I believe this could be improved upon.

  • Some websites are classified as Meaningless content, especially links used in emails to unsubscribe from lists. Luckily FortiGuard Web Filtering Service is responsive about reclassifying those quickly.

I found that Check Point identified more Ransomware attacks than Kaspersky.

We selected FortiGuard Web Filtering because it came in the service bundle with our FortiGate unit. After testing the service for a couple of months, we disabled the web filtering that was running on our client machines and have not looked back. It's been easy to manage, effective, and fast. There isn't much more you can ask for from a filtering solution.

Return on Investment
Check Point Software Technologies
  • It has enabled us to maintain privacy which has enhanced our highly rated brand standard. While basically it is a team member specific, behind the scenes program that protects systems from being used by unauthorized individuals, it contributes to the overall integrity of the organization which results in increased market share and return on investment for shareholders.
