FortiAP

Any rollout is well suited for a FortiAP - from small office networks, to large warehouse deployments. Adding additional APs to your network is simple and easy. Monitoring is simple with Forticloud monitoring. Configuring the devices can be as complex or as simple as you need. Adding additional Fortinet devices (I have switches and firewalls) makes the network even more secure and easy to manage - all devices working in tandem make monitoring much easier

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

Small or large organizations will benefit from using MDE. They need to provide a way to buy MDE as a standalone add-on product not only make it a bundled feature in Microsoft 365 E5. I wish it had the ability to deploy updates to 3rd party apps when the vulnerability scanner discovers a vulnerability. Currently, I have to use a 3rd party tool to address this gap.

  • They perform and/or surpass performance levels shown on their data sheets.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

  • It is great at proactively monitoring threats across the network. It works seamlessly with the client to monitor individual user computers, and it has a good real-time scanning engine.
  • On the client side, Windows Defender doesn't require a whole lot of system resources to run, nor will it create unnessary slowdowns of a computer, even while scanning for threats

Cons

FortiAP

  • Deploying your first AP is a little confusing - you need to register it with Fortinet, and then deploy it. I am a master now, but this took me call to support to understand how to roll these out.
  • Adding them in to the correct folders on Forticloud took a little bit of figuring out, but again, once I had it it was simple.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

  • Virus detection rates are below competitors.
  • Too many notifications that end up bothering.
  • Do not ask every time if you should send reports to Microsoft.

This is an excellent product for an SMB - cost isn't outrageous and deploy is simple. I can monitor my network without breaking the bank.

Fortinet support is outstanding! They are second to none. They pay attention to details and the needs of the customer.

Every time I've had a question or a problem, I was able to get it addressed quickly. Microsoft has a huge database for ATP support, and it has contained 90% of what I have looked for. It was a lifesaver during initial setup.

Alternatives Considered

FortiAP

FortiAP does not fall short compared to other vendors. They have all the features other vendors offer at a much more competitive price-point, which makes purchasing FortiAP a lot more attractive.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

MS ATP is lower on system resources and enables us to stretch out our endpoint hardware for an additional year. Also, MS ATP being an MS product fits in very nicely into MS remote management software and MS operating system. We have had little to no issues when hotfixes and roll updates are deployed, unlike 3rd party AV providers that we had experience with in the past.

Return on Investment

FortiAP

  • Increased overall coverage of wireless for my users - no more calls about dropped wireless (our cell service is very spotty).
  • Easy to roll out - no issues here.
  • Expensive - you are paying for a business, not a home use devices - sticker shock might happen initially.
Nathan Venno | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

  • There is definitely a piece of mind provided when you know that your system will not get compromised because of malware and viruses.
  • The fact that I don't have to spend money in the first place means that I can spend money on other more important things that do require it.
