    Cylance Smart Antivirus is well suited for the typical office user. It can be very restrictive if you do not tune it properly and can cause many issues. When tuned and set up properly it is appropriate for 95% of use cases. The last 5% are ones that have the capabilities of bringing an organization down if it is not tuned properly.

    FortiClient is really well suited for providing remote employees super quick access to a local network without needing much technical know-how. The virus scanning and web-blocking is also really great at making sure to keep the spam, ads, and other malicious web connections at bay. I have not run into any specific scenario that FortiClient has not been well suited - All of the scenarios in which I have used FortiClient have all functions really well for me.

    • [FortiClient] splits the traffic very well. For example, when users connect a VPN to the office they are connecting to the internal system which uses VPN traffic. If users access the public internet they use the internet traffic, but [Fortinet] does not route this traffic back to the office.

    Fortinet

    • font way too small on login, unable to select an option, for example, to see each letter of password as typed promotes errors at login
    • login errors and failure rate extremely high as [reported] by all our physicians and other providers: not infrequently one will have to return to office after hours in order to complete charts or access charts to answer patient after hours questions
    • frequent disconnects in spite of excellent internet signal
    • unacceptable interruptions in patient care

        Because the software is very simple and easy to use, very efficient, and has a stable connection that allows the user to perform tasks without problems. Also, this software does not need to be configured by IT technicians, since it comes with a very developed and understandable set up guide.

        Usability is pretty solid. It is not as easy to manage and adjust if you are not a trained IT professional, which requires smaller companies without IT staff to reply on outsourced IT partners. The user interface is a bit clunky, but you can generally figure out what you need to do, it just takes a little bit of time and effort.

        FortiClient is a security suite with which we can keep our equipment well-protected. And it is that in a system like Windows, which is always the target of all kinds of attacks, it is not enough to have a simple antivirus.

        Cylance was the first AI scanning-based AV on the market. While Webroot was competitive we found Cylance to be the better solution.

        Meraki MX has a much more basic set of features compared to FortClient and the Fortinet ecosystem of devices and software. Setting up a FortiGate with FortiClient can take a little more time, but the feature set is much richer. We use Meraki MX is a few offices, but are now converting many of them over to the FortiClient and Fortinet suite of security devices and software.

        Return on Investment

        BlackBerry

        • Too much time to manage.
        • Too many false positives.
        • Too much lost productivity.

        • The free version of FortiClient VPN works great.
        • The fact that we have to pay for any version beyond 6.0.3 to connect to our firewalls that we already pay for licensing on is a little silly.
        • There is some support overhead with our clients and users to keep the software updated since it doesn't upgrade to new major versions automatically.
