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.

Sophos XG Firewall

This is the best product for small-size organizations with a low budget that want advanced and deep-level security features. Sandboxing and advanced malware protection are the most valuable features available on Sophos devices. Other features like applications and web content make your organization more secure, and you can put more restrictions on users.

Sophos XG Firewall

  • If using Endpoint security and the Firewall it would be nice to have an easier back and forth between the portals rather than have two separate tabs open. Especially if using more than one in multiple locations.
  • If dealing with different revisions options are moved around and sometimes in places that doesn't normally seem like they should be there.

Honestly we didn't get the premium support from them, but our partner has been supportive. Online forums are also a good place to learn things from.

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.

Sophos XG Firewall

We have been a Sophos customer for the most part but i have seen some other offerings from SonicWall, Barracuda, and Cisco. While they all offer nice products, we've always been content with our Sophos XG firewalls, especially as they release more and more features/etc.
