Fortinet on IBM Cloud

[FortiGuard] was used to secure the local network. FortiWAN, was used to manage communication between networks. FortiAP, were used as Wi-Fi communication equipment. The resulting solution was to provide wireless connectivity to the different business areas. It can be integrated very well in small and large solutions since they support connections simultaneously.

RackFoundry Total Security Management (discontinued)

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

Alternatives Considered

Fortinet on IBM Cloud

It is a very comprehensive option, it has the possibility of integrating well with other technologies and provides good technical support, although prices are not always accessible. It is recommended to use Fortinet solutions for business companies with high user demand. It is recommended to purchase the annual maintenance plan that they offer.

RackFoundry Total Security Management (discontinued)

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.
