To access sites by geolocation block,or to stream continuously,keepsolid VPN comes handy.As the switching between locations is fast,the work is done in time without wasting.But they might keep log of accessed sites,which may void the secured term.In some sites,resedential IP is needed to get pass by proxy checker,the VPN connection doesnt work

Cons

FortiGate

  • 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.

Fortinet's products have kept improving with new software releases and they continue to deliver great value. Their support is also very good. I believe that as a small enterprise, their products have given us competitive advantage delivering features and functionality that enable us to innovate and do things better. They also continue to be a leader in the markets they serve.

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

FortiGate

Fortinet was well placed on the Gartner report which lead to my initial investigation into the company. I quickly narrowed my selections down to Palo Alto and Fortinet, due to feature set, reputation and ease of use. Fortinet won out simply because Palo Alto did not offer a small branch style firewall at the time I was looking. I'm very glad they did. I have enjoyed working with their products from the moment they were first racked.

I tried a few free VPN servers, some via webpages and others via apps, but nothing specific comes to mind, maybe HideMyAss.com and Windscribe. All the freebies had limitations, such as ad-supported, speed limitations, or not allowing scripts to run. KeepSolid VPN Unlimited doesn't have any of these limitations so I could get to work without distraction.

Return on Investment

FortiGate

  • 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.

  • After a week of constant roadblocks, this VPN sped up my online research considerably.
  • Travelling, I was unable to control my IP, the majority of which were blacklisted on the majority of American sites, but this VPN got me around that so I could get to work.
