Environments where web security is a necessity. It doesn't matter how big or small your business is, securing all assets is very important.

FortiGuard Web Filtering Service

FortiGuard Web Filtering Service has served us well for protecting both business and guest networks. We currently have multiple tiers on the business side running different rule sets, and some shared custom groups allowing us to manage access with as much granularity as we desire

Cons

  • How updates are managed
  • Support - timing and back and forth with question/answers
Rob Morton | TrustRadius Reviewer

FortiGuard Web Filtering Service

  • The method for allowing individual overrides is clunky, but it functions. A clean way to allow individual overrides (with the ability to set a timer) would be fantastic.

Took a little longer for support to get our problem solved, but when the upper tier tech support was involved, we got excellent customer support.

Alternatives Considered

All are quality products, but each have their downsides. Seems to be similar across the product line, how they manage updating the software. There always seems to be issues after updates.

FortiGuard Web Filtering Service

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

cWatch

  • Application uptime is key. Managing risk of downtime saves much more than the cost of this platform.
Rob Morton | TrustRadius Reviewer

FortiGuard Web Filtering Service

  • It cost us almost little time to set up and pilot, so we didn't spend a lot of man-hours working on it. Implementation was easy.
