To protect the local network, [FortiGuard] was utilized. To handle communication between networks, FortiWAN was employed. Wi-Fi communication technology, such as FortiAP, was used. As a result of the solution, different business areas now have wireless connectivity. Because it supports simultaneous connections, it can be easily integrated into small and big solutions.

RackFoundry Total Security Management (TSM) is suited for most companies that have the same challenge as my team had. If you are looking to purchase one security tool and spend most of your allocated budget then I would not recommend this for you. However, if you are looking for something close to a single pane of glass, (granted there is no such thing) this solution does come close as they have the main components built in such as their FW/IPS/IDS/SIEM. Before selecting RackFoundry we had two options which were: 1) Upgrade our current solution and spend an overbearing amount 2) Search for new vendors and maybe procure 1-3 devices and then manually integrate them. Because this was a unified console and integration between devices was simple, we were able to obtain 4-6 security functions and we even had some sense of security visibility via the SIEM. It's not as powerful as Splunk or LogRhythm, but it definitely does the job

Although prices are not always affordable, it is a very complete choice that may integrate well with other technologies and gives good technical assistance. Fortinet solutions are ideal for businesses with a significant number of users. It is suggested that you acquire their annual maintenance plan.

Well I have experience with the big names: SecureWorks, IBM and Splunk. Individually their logging tools are much better than RackFoundry's Total Security Management. This is great for large corporations and urban cities, however not so great for municipalities, mid size businesses and companies who fluctuate between 1-7 members on their IT staff. Why? Because it takes too much of their resources and integration with other products gets a little rough as you will need to configure your preferences to theirs. When a company has stability it is great to have a name brand product, however renewals and upgrade costs can be taxing to an organization.

  • Overall the product has had a negative impact. Not necessarily on our environment but in the amount of time it has taken to deploy.
