Overall Satisfaction with FortiOS
FortiOS is an ecosystem used primarily (in our environment) with FortiGate Firewalls to protect and narrow our threat surface. FortiOS provides a common user interface regardless of device makeup and unifies features such as automation and orchestration, network, and security policy under a single, common user interface. Through its API, FortiOS provides a common management framework and a common security framework for all your FortiNet solutions and 3rd Party devices.
