FortiManager is utilized by Security Engineering, Security Operations, Network Engineering and Network Operations as a single console to manage FortiGate firewalls in the Corporate, Datacenter, and Cloud grouped into several Administration Domains. FortiManager controls role-based access and user capabilities integrated with our backend Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) platform. FortiManager provides deep visibility and centralized control to firewalls deployed in our defense-in-depth global enterprise security fabric.
  • Centralized FortiGate FW Management in a single console
  • Available physical, virtual, or cloud deployment
  • Single console for next-generation FW features
  • Multiple Administrative Domains
  • Support contracts are difficult to manage or make changes to
  • Next Generation subscriptions are managed individually, i.e. pegged to specific firewalls
  • Cumbersome to bring existing firewalls to be covered under a single contract
FortiManager is well suited for any environment with multiple and dispersed FortiGate firewalls. It will not manage other firewall platforms. Therefore, you either have to use multiple centralized management software, one for each firewall vendor, or invest in alternative tools such as Tufin, AlgoSec, FireMon, SolarWinds, etc. However, you will not get a more inclusive tool for your FortiGate firewalls other than FortiManager.
  • Next Generation support features (e.g. AV, AS, WAF, etc.)
  • Multi-tenancy
  • Role-Based Access Control
  • Central Console for Firewall, VPN, FortiSwitch, FortiExtender, and FortiAP
  • SDWAN Management
  • Allowed for quick migration from legacy firewall platforms
  • NOC and SOC visibility of entire threat surface
  • Intuitive user interface
  • Extremely quick learning curve
FortiManager is the best choice for managing numerous FortiGate firewalls. It allows for easy integration into ServiceNow and automates simple repetitive tasks that are very straightforward. Role-based access control is easy to enable and you can get quite granular with user permissions. Administrative Domains help segregate firewall management and compliance within the FortiManager console, by almost any classification method that makes sense to your organization.
