  • FortiGuard Web Filtering Service effectively protects websites. There is no need to install the root certificate on all PCs inside the network.
  • The database signature updates every hour, so we don't need to spend time updating the website to blacklist or whitelist.
  • It can protect very well. Whereas, some traditional proxies can not do that. For example, others can not block Youtube or Facebook.
  • It can also protect the search keyword, like in Youtube or other social media, Google, etc.
  • The functionality of FortiGuard is simple and easy to use but not advance.
  • The command line is difficult to use and understand.

  • Easy Implementation.
  • Worked well with most of the apps we use.
  • GUI was easy to use.
  • Interface was not easy for some other users, but after they got it down, it worked well.
  • Took a little while to get help from support. Had to call the project manager to get help. But they took care of the issue after the fact.

  • The logging provided in FortiGuard Web Filtering Services is fantastic. It allows you to capture all requisite information. I personally have my log view set to show address accessed, time browsed, user, machine, all IP addresses involved, computer name, site Category, and the action taken.
  • In 4 years I have had to report 6 incorrect website ratings. Every time I've reported an issue, there has been an update to the site listing by the next morning.
  • Creating separate rule sets is simple, allowing for easy management of different groups of users.
  • The method for allowing individual overrides is clunky, but it functions. A clean way to allow individual overrides (with the ability to set a timer) would be fantastic.
