Cyberoam

We've been happy with them for the most part for use in our K-12 segment. Please also know that the review is for thoughts and sharing and does not represent or infer a product endorsement by myself or on behalf of the University of Hawaii system.

Fortinet on IBM Cloud

[FortiGuard] was used to secure the local network. FortiWAN, was used to manage communication between networks. FortiAP, were used as Wi-Fi communication equipment. The resulting solution was to provide wireless connectivity to the different business areas. It can be integrated very well in small and large solutions since they support connections simultaneously.

Cons

Cyberoam

  • Without mentioning an alternative brand, there is another leading company who has updated with firewall UI quite a bit. They offer an expanded line-up to meet a wider array of needs including specific appliances for web caching, proxy servers, and other products that have the same and familiar UI across the products. Each of the products does have some overlap so that customers can choose the right appliance for their use case.
  • After being acquired by Sophos, we saw our year-over-year costs escalate significantly since our original maintenance contract. They should consider revisiting the pricing, especially for education.
  • They should consider a current market analysis and see how the market is changing and adapting with other lower cost appliances for their product line up.

Alternatives Considered

Cyberoam

At the time Fortinet wasn't open to changes and ease of use for our type of use case. Since then, the company has come a long way with ease of use of their product. We selected Cyberoam because of its UI and ease of use specifically for CIPA compliance for K-12

Fortinet on IBM Cloud

It is a very comprehensive option, it has the possibility of integrating well with other technologies and provides good technical support, although prices are not always accessible. It is recommended to use Fortinet solutions for business companies with high user demand. It is recommended to purchase the annual maintenance plan that they offer.

  • Negative - escalating costs are pushing us away from the solution
