Fortinet
For FortiGate Firewall, the basic functionality and requirement is met easily as Fortigate is among market leaders in NGFW. There are some extra points that inclined us to use Fortigate as our main Firewall. [Fortinet]Fortigate has a very well refined and functional SD-WAN solution when it comes to load balancing for normal Internet Traffic. SD-WAN - Load balancing of Internet traffic is a USP of Fortigate and makes it stand tall in the competition. Be it 3 or more Internet Links, multiple Subnets/segments of users to distribute and bandwidth load balancing for links and users. SLA based monitoring of Internet Links / MPLS links, makes it even better to choose the links on the basis of performance (Latency, packet loss, Jitter etc). SSL VPN configuration - The deep CLI-level debugging is also very helpful in troubleshooting. Type of tunnel can be easily configured - Full Tunnel or Split Tunnel for SSL. Though, I think Fortigate is one of the best options for small and mid-sized organizations, there are some areas for improvement. First, the CLI interface is very hard to adapt as the commands and directory hierarchy is very different for common syntax and standards.

This is a VPN for a technical user. It's not the easiest VPN to use and, while very secure, the quirks and issues it has will frustrate your standard users. It's a great backup and secondary VPN option for me as a technical user, but I think for the average user I would recommend something a bit more friendly. For all you IT folks out there or more tech-savvy people, I would definitely recommend checking it out though!

  • The speed you get is actually really good. I have connected it to multiple locations and very rarely had issues with slow speed.
  • There are multiple servers across different locations. So you always have a lot of choices.
  • Simple to use. The UI is really clean and easy to navigate. Works almost with a single click.
  • You also get access to the mobile version which works really nicely as well.
  • Good support. They were really helpful and responded quickly when I contacted them.

Cons
Fortinet
  • When we switched to Fortinet Fortigate, it took some time getting used to and become familiar with the new interface. Being used to strictly command-line interfaces, a full GUI-based firewall was something brand new. Careful planning had to be done when creating rules to ensure we didn't miss anything. However, once we got used to the new GUI interface, going from one Fortinet product to another was simple, as Fortinet used the same interface for all of its devices.

Usability
Fortinet
The user interface shared among many simultaneous users is very easy to get around. With shared favorites among users, most tasks are easily bookmarked and can quickly be found and edited. Their strategy for web filter integration is easy to understand and manage as well. With some general direction, setup and maintenance were easy to do and easy to teach others in the organization to do as well.

We live in Turkey. Fortinet's Turkey office [dealt] constantly with us in our every problem or our experience. In addition, global support teams also supported every ticket we opened in every problem we encountered. They support innovative approaches and evaluate and offer solutions. In this context, they were very supportive of the problems we encountered in previous versions.

Alternatives Considered
Fortinet
[Fortinet] FortiGate is not only cost effective but it gives the comprehensive security against the APT attacks and gives the complete traffic visibility and granular control. You can easily create the VDOMs (Virtual firewall) within a Fortigate firewall and customize the dashboard as per your requirement if you have multiple VDOMs within a single firewall.

I tried a few alternatives (Cyberghost, Private Internet access etc) before settling on this. Of all the different options I looked into this one performed most reliably for me. It was also the fastest of the different options I tested. It was also backed up by good reviews online and solid support team. It is a little pricier than some competitors but I feel I get good value out of it.

My environments are pretty small (less than 100 users per location) so no issues here.

Return on Investment
Fortinet
  • Fortigates have an interesting bundle model for support and subscription services that make it an attractive option to deploy Firewall, IDS, Ant-virus, anti-SPAM in a single device. The cost of the bundle is pretty much what you pay for the device, not requiring huge expenditures on it's time to renew the hardware.

  • A single leak of data or hack easily makes this worth it.
  • Its low cost makes ROI and justifiability easy.
