We have used FortiGuard Web Filtering Service for around 4 years. We previously tried other software such as Squid Proxy, but it was not effective. Our problem was not solved until we tried using the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall. There was no need to install a root certificate on the PCs, plus the category of website and antivirus protection was inside already. Previously when using Squid Proxy, we had to add the website names and compile them, which wasted a lot of time.

We use the FortiGuard Web Filtering Service on our Firewalls at all locations, branches, and enterprises. We are using multiple different configurations of the service to maintain separate rule sets for our different types of networks and users. The integration with our firewalls and FortiManager allow a seamless experience for the user across all of our sites.

Business Problems it Addresses
  • Phishing -- protects our users from inadvertent compromise, as it typically is the mechanism that catches phishing attempts.
  • Prevents damaging types of non-work related browsing.
  • Secures our guest wireless, preventing illegal activity.
  • Allows for logging of user activity if needed.
