Overall Satisfaction with Fortinet FortiGate

Fortinet FortiGate firewall provides you ultimate threat protection for your organization. This is only one and [many] powerful firewall offers UTM. Most of firewall offers UTM but most of main features is missing but in Fortinet we have web filtering, anti virus, content filtering, application control, which help you organization from external threats so your business will not [be] harmed from any cyber attack. I have this product in one of my location. I am satisfied with [its] high performance and advanced protection.
  • High performance threat protection.
  • Web filtering.
  • Anti virus.
  • Application filtering.
  • Content filtering.
  • Email control.
  • Highly protected with advanced security features.
  • Command line is not easy so you will face problem to remember the commands.
  • Not good technical support and issue with SLA.
  • Not easy to configure and implement.
  • Data lose prevention.
  • Email filtering.
  • Anti malware protection.
  • Latest IPS.
  • GUI is very fast and easy to manage.
  • You will get the all UTM in one box so no need to send the packet to different devices for scan.
  • Very fast performance.
  • Packet flow is very easy to understand.
We have both devices Fortinet FortiGate and ASA with firepower services, but [the] main difference is price. The price is [less for] Fortinet FortiGate and we are getting the all features. Email filtering and DLP is extra features and very advanced which we will get only in Fortinet FortiGate.

Do you think Fortinet FortiGate delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Fortinet FortiGate's feature set?


Did Fortinet FortiGate live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Fortinet FortiGate go as expected?


Would you buy Fortinet FortiGate again?


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.
