Fortigate Firewalls models are designed to be used in networks of any size. They come in sizes varying from Entry Level to large enterprise. Fortinet FortiGate is best suited tot he Corporate Network environment where high security is required. The Devices also offer powerful WAN services and SDWAN features which make them an excellent alternative for your basic WAN Router. With features such as OSPF and BGP and SDWAN, they provide advanced network services and enhanced security at a lower cost. Because these boxes are purpose built and include Security Processor (SPU) technology, they outperform other devices in their class.

We are connected to the outworld internet which needs special protection for our internal infrastructure and to manage the internal multiple subnet and routings. Access Rules are a must to configure for different sorts of users and departments. There is always a requirement for users to connect while traveling and outside the office premises. All these above needs can be achieved with a UTM Firewall device and Fortinet FortiGate solved these issues for any organization.

When you offer internet solutions as a company, you have to consider security measures, and the Fortinet firewalls are a good tool to achieve this. Therefore, to implement security on networks. This is perfect, however, if you don't need that much security, is not as necessary.

For FortiGate Firewall, the basic functionality and requirement is met easily as Fortigate is among market leaders in NGFW. There are some extra points that inclined us to use Fortigate as our main Firewall. [Fortinet]Fortigate has a very well refined and functional SD-WAN solution when it comes to load balancing for normal Internet Traffic. SD-WAN - Load balancing of Internet traffic is a USP of Fortigate and makes it stand tall in the competition. Be it 3 or more Internet Links, multiple Subnets/segments of users to distribute and bandwidth load balancing for links and users. SLA based monitoring of Internet Links / MPLS links, makes it even better to choose the links on the basis of performance (Latency, packet loss, Jitter etc). SSL VPN configuration - The deep CLI-level debugging is also very helpful in troubleshooting. Type of tunnel can be easily configured - Full Tunnel or Split Tunnel for SSL. Though, I think Fortigate is one of the best options for small and mid-sized organizations, there are some areas for improvement. First, the CLI interface is very hard to adapt as the commands and directory hierarchy is very different for common syntax and standards.

I am using this firewall in my one location which we have limited users but our client data is very critical, we need deep security and we want to scan the every packet deeply, so I chose this one. I am really happy with UTM features. I am using email and DLP features for more control on my users.

It is best suited to secure your private networks at filtering packets from the outside world. It also good for managing and limiting your employees to access certain websites and limit application access. It is best suited as your front line of your security systems inside your organization. You can also use it as a VPN.

Our firewall is fantastic. It's very quick and easy to configure. Fortigate offered a lot of assistance during setup so that our downtime when switching was very limited. The technical support team is amazing and have a very quick response time. Compared to it's peers, Fortigate has exceptional pricing for the same or better feature set.

FortiGates are very well suited when used in conjunction with FortiManager for scalability and management reasons. Larger model FortiGates are not necessary for smaller environments. The basic models do just fine.

FortiGate is a great fit and no brainer expense when replacing a firewall for our average target client (< 100 users) - much better return on investment compared to Meraki solutions. With the ability to license up or down to best fit a client's requirements - the product line is flexible and scalable. Much different experience than some other product lines we used to lead with - that we'll still support, it's just not the top of our list when a client asks for our recommendation.

We like that FortiGate simplifies the deployment of SSL VPN without added hardware or licensing costs - but if you want to include sandboxing and device endpoint telemetry, you can easily bolt on licenses and leverage cloud management without deploying additional hardware. A huge benefit for smaller clients where it's just not feasible.

Fortigate works pretty well if you choose the correct device based on the number of your users. If you need to apply policies by application this solution can help you. Their other features like web filter, VPN connections, traffic reports, etc work well too. In general terms, the solution is very complete and the cost of this device is cheaper than other vendors.

Fortinet Fortigate is a robust firewall and security device. Fortinet has devices geared for any situations, and for any sized company...from single computer small businesses to extremely large organizations with thousands of computers. Fortinet Fortigate is reasonably priced and contains the ability to have multiple functions embedded into a single device, making management that much simpler. Its robust feature set is top-notch and is on a level playing field with the largest names in the business, and in my view, because of the cost difference, wins hands down.
