Fortinet
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.

It is a very good device to use on a small and medium size company (0-400 users). However I wouldn't use it for very big companies.

Pros
Fortinet
  • [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.

  • Easy to manage on a daily basis
  • It goes very deep into analyzing the trafic and the configuration is very thin.
  • The first configuration is not so complex

Cons
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

  • Not everything is possible on the web administration page. We need to use the ssh console to do many things.
  • The logs viewer is not as helpful as on other brands (like ASTARO, SOPHOS,...)

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
Fortinet
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.

Fortinet
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.

Alternatives Considered
Fortinet
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
Fortinet
  • 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.

  • It does the job very well once it is correctly configured. By that I mean, it is functioning with the least waste of time and effort for network administrators.
  • If needed the support is efficient.
