Overall Satisfaction with Fortinet Wireless LAN

We have implemented Fortinet WLAN at some of our Branch offices to ensure proper connectivity for our teams. Security was core, and with hybrid workforce realities, especially with multiple offices, we needed to have a solution in place that offered easy connectivity to all of our users. Setup was easy for our IT team, which is always a plus!
  • Provide secure wifi
  • deploys easily
  • facilitates users connectivity when moving between offices
  • requires manual updates
  • Access points cost vs performance
  • support isnt always efficient
  • Easy of deployment
  • Powerful integration to other Fortinet products
  • industry leading Security features
  • single vendor management for better cost control
  • ability to scale
  • quick and easy setup
as a stand-alone product, the Fortinet wireless LAN solution isn't the most powerful, nor compelling out there. Others, like Cisco Meraki, offer great products, with added wifi features at a similar price point, but where Forti shines, is when integrated into a network with firewall enablement such as FortiGate. Overall, it stacks up well with others and is a solution that needs to be evaluated in a purchasing project.

Fortinet offers great Security features and is one of the leaders on that, and integrating Wireless LAN infrastructure with Access points proved to work rather seamlessly. Ease of management, single platform and ability to customize licensing as per needs were elements in favor of adding the Wireless LAN solution from Fortinet to our security portfolio.
