Product Reviews
Fortinet FortiGate 80C - security appliance is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Virtual domains are treated as separate firewall instances. Valuable Features:You can create multiple virtual domains (VDOMs) which are treated as separate firewall instances. The reporting you get out of this appliance is excellent and you don't need an external management system.Improvements to My Organization:There is no need to buy physical firewall hardware when you are hosting multiple customers requiring individual secure access to their FW. You just create virtual domains (VDOMs).Room for Improvement:Fortinet policies are built between zones or interface to interface. This can result duplicates being installed without warnings, resulting in policy auditing issues. Another issue is that Fortigate does not support Netflow, only sFlow is supported.Use of Solution:I have used it for two years.Deployment Issues:They are pretty much easy to deploy and figure out when you have experience with other security appliances. If you can configure a Cisco ASA, then it will be a walk in the park for you.One issue which I had to get used to (and was a pain if you miss it) is that with FortiGate, you must have a firewall policy for all traffic passing between interfaces. With Cisco ASA, you only need a policy for traffic moving from lower to higher security-level interfaces.Stability Issues:These devices are very stable.Scalability Issues:They are easily scalable, with multiple built-in interfaces. It supports a minimum of 10 VDOMs. VDOM supports all dynamic routing protocols like RIP, OSPF, BGP, and IS-IS. You don't need to reboot after enabling VDOMs.The issue I have is that there is one big configuration file, with no separations for the unique VDOMs; maybe if they separate individual VDOM configuration files, with the root VDOM configuration file referencing the individual VDOM config files.Customer Service:Customer service is great, 8/10.Technical Support:I will give technical support 8/10.Previous Solutions:We previously used different solutions. We did not switch. There are different requirements for different customersInitial Setup:The user interface is relatively easy. They are pretty much easy to deploy and figure out when you have experience with other security appliances.Implementation Team:It was an in-house installation.ROI:ROI is great. These boxes are not that expensive compared to what they can do and what functionality and reporting you get.Cost and Licensing Advice:These boxes are not that expensive compared to what they can do and what functionality and reporting you get. Fortinet licensing is straightforward and less confusing compared to Cisco. Fortinet has 1 or 2 license types and VPN numbers are only limited by the hardware chassis make.Other Solutions Considered:I already have an experience with Cisco ASA, so it was simply a customer preference and it was well within the budget.Other Advice:Great appliances and affordable.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fortigate is only cheap if you don't value your time or product quality I have had the displeasure of having to support SOHO Fortigate offerings (Fortigate/Fortiwifi). in almost any measure, I have found these products inferior to respective solutions from cisco and juniper (two examples i've had experience with).I'll start with the most egregious and disturbing: the product is unstable. the VPN client is crash prone and the VPN daemon is crash prone. if you want to enjoy having to drive to the office when the roads are iced because the VPN daemon just gave up the ghost again, just to reboot a unit, by all means - choose Fortigate.I'll continue with support - pretty much a joke, although being fair here, it is similar in other respective products. by the time a competent engineer reviews your case, you may have to wade through more than a month of back and forth with t1/t2 support who offer very little usable assistance.And final insult to injury - aggressive and clueless resellers. Fortigate tries to distance themselves from customers via resellers (as if support filtering wasn't enough). getting the wrong product or wrong configuration is very common, especially with unneeded packages.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The most valuable features for us are VPN, WebFilter, and Firewall. Valuable Features:The most valuable features for us are* VPN* WebFilter* FirewallImprovements to My Organization:It's features are highly customizable. This means that when our different business groups have different needs, the implementations can be customized to meet the demands of those groups and needs.Room for Improvement:I'd like to see an improvement in the Bandwidth Management and Traffic limit control.Also, the licenses are expensive, turning off some users.Use of Solution:We've used all units for five years, except the FortiGate 200D which has been in use for one year. Alongside FortiGate, we also have FortiAnalyzer 1000B and the FortiManager 200D.Deployment Issues:There have been no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:There have been no stability issues.Scalability Issues:It has not been a problem to scale it.Customer Service:Customer service is very good.Technical Support:Technical support is very good.Previous Solutions:I depend on different products from different vendors depending on the required function.Initial Setup:The initial setup is simple in the CLI or Web GUI.Implementation Team:An in-house network engineer implemented it using the best practice recommendations from the vendor.Cost and Licensing Advice:The appliances and licenses are expensive, and I know some people use other vendors because of this.Other Advice:You should know the customization you want from the beginning, and plan your requirements appropriately.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I could achieve the same results with a software firewall. This one comes in a nice hardware package. Using the CLI should be documented better. Valuable Features:* Flexibility* Flow tracking* B2B VPNImprovements to My Organization:It's good for what it is. I could achieve the same results with a pfSense firewall. This one just comes in a nice hardware package.Room for Improvement:Better documentation about usage of the CLI. I learned most of what I know in diagnostic functionality through saving SSH sessions with the customer support staff while in WebEx sessions.I have tried looking up the manuals. They are OK in some respects, but I feel exhaustive documentation about the CLI "with examples" should be there, and I feel it's not.I'm saying, hey lets consolidate some of the primary real world scenarios like:Section A: - Troubeshooting B2B VPN peering with a business partner or client when initially setting up the VPN tunnel.Inevitably, there are always quirks and nuances between the fortigate vendor versus peering with a Palo Alto or an ASA firewall or even a Juniper SSG.Imagine providing all steps, command line syntax, and GUI (if available) and how to take steps to debug the flow and see what's failing.Sometimes it's super hard to figure out what's wrong with a fortigate VPN unless you know the commands on the CLI to see the flow and how to interpret it.If they had all the methods / syntax and the "how's and why's" for a scenario; even possibly an instructional video showing how via the CLI and gui alongside the documentation. It would be like the pearly gates had opened and I had gone to heaven.Use of Solution:I have used it for three years.Stability Issues:I never encountered any stability issues. It is a very stable product.Scalability Issues:Scalability's not been an issue for my org. We only utilize it for certain applications.Technical Support:Technical support is excellent, although it can be a bit difficult to understand the tech. As with most support staff from almost all vendors now, the support comes from somewhere across the pond.Previous Solutions:On the site where the FortiGate is stationed, it's never been changed out.Initial Setup:Initial setup was straightforward.Cost and Licensing Advice:Buy the support package! Upgrades, advice about upgrade paths, and troubleshooting help is paramount. There have been some times where, without it, I'd have been dead in the water.Other Solutions Considered:This was an in-place firewall when I integrated the site to my org.Other Advice:Figure out what features you want, and what policies you want. Look up how to do it in advance, and create an implementation plan.Plan for policies, routing, NATting, etc. Create a step-by-step process in advance, possibly create the environment in a DEV sandbox, test it, then implement.It has a good feature set. However, sometimes you are forced to solicit technical support to get it working.Also, I find the web interfaces sometimes do not display things properly.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The FortiGate security appliances. UTM security in a single device, good administrative interface and performances. First thingsfirstTalking about FortiGate from Fortinet we are talkingabout a family of UTM (UnifiedThreat Management) appliances.This means: FortiGate is a term that includes a wide range of products,starting from small ones dedicated to small offices, and growing up to devicesthat are able to grant security and networking for really big companies. Thefamily includes physical devices andvirtual machines, which grant network security on different layers using asingle point of control. FortiGate is optimizedto avoid bottlenecks or delays while the various controls are performed. High availability is also part of the availablefeatures, with different solutions to avoid single points of failure.In the short list that follows, I will try to listsome interesting points about the FortiGate solution.1. AdministrativeInterfaceIf you are experienced with network securitymanagement, you know that usually this kind of activity requires to interactwith many different software and hardware coming from disparate vendors. In theaforementioned scenario, it is normal to have frequent updates to apply on the various productsand to watch more than one monitoringtool to keep track of security events. The FortiGate solution includes all thecontrols you could expect using a patchwork of security products in a singledevice with a single administrative interface. It is yourswitch, your router, your firewall ( http://www.itcentralstation.com/category/firewalls ), your VPN hub, your antivirus, yourantispam, your proxy and your end-point security solution all in one.If you define a network object or group forfirewalling purposes, it will be available also to define antivirus rules orInternet browsing policies. There are two administrative interfaces:·Web-based manager (a graphical interface usablethrough an web browser)·CLI (a command line interface)A strong point of a FortiGate is the fact that thegraphical interface is complete and easy to use (especially if we think to thelist of operations that we are able to perform inside).Again, if you have used appliances or firewalls comingfrom other vendors, you know that often you have to use a not-so-friendlycommand lines to obtain the exact result that you need. Talking about FortiGate,you will use the CLI seldom and only for the most “exotic” features.2. UTM theFortinet wayUnified Threat Management may be complex to manage,because you work on different protocols, at different layers and with disparatethreats to consider. In a FortiGate you can think to have three great layers:·Networkingservices (switching and routing, both static and dynamic)·Networksecurity services (firewalling, secure VPN connection, intrusiondetection and endpoint security)·Applicationsecurity services (spam and virus controls, web filtering, applicationcontrol and data leak prevention)As long as you pay (and renew as it expires) the“bundle” license, you have all the aforementioned features available includingthe updates for signatures and definitions, coming to your appliance directlyfrom Fortinet. I am not saying that you have to use all the available controls,but you are able to turn them on and off “on-demand” so you could start with asimple configuration and add control layers when you feel more comfortable.3. VirtualDomainsOne of the available features include the capabilityof a FortiGate to support many VirtualDomains (VDOMs). VDOMs enableyou to grant access to different companies with different administrators on thesame physical unit. Each one of them will be able to keep his/her specificconfiguration with no impact on the others. What you are doing here is creating“virtual units”, keeping on a “root domain” that is used to manage the virtualdomains. VDOMs add a lot of flexibility to the solutions you are able to planusing FortiGate4. HighAvailability and ResiliencyThereare four different ways to make a FortiGate unit high available. You could usea traditional “cluster” design with two or more units FortiGate Cluster Protocol (FGCP), a solutions with an externalload balancer FortiGate Session LifeSupport Protocol (FGSP), a layer 3 resiliency solution like Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)or a layer 2 solution like FortinetRedundant UTM Protocol (FRUP). Here we have (again) a great deal offlexibility to design the best solution for our company’s needs.5. The DarkSide of the MoonIt would be not fair to review a product omitting thenegative points. Talking about FortiGate, the main complain I have heard isabout the technical support. My personal experience is the same of many peoplethat are not happy with this aspect of the service offered from Fortinet. Oftenyour problem is diverted to local partners and I have to say that I had mixed resultswith them. While some partners are professional, many are not skilled enoughand have costs that are not equivalent to their quality. I know that there isthe same issue with other vendors too but that is not an excuse. As long asFortinet support sends me to a local reseller or partner, from my point ofview, they are taking responsibility for their capability too.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I can delegate more simple and routine tasks to other administrators and I don’t have to be the “Firewall” guy all the time, but the graphical interface always has room for improvement. Valuable Features:I enjoy the combination of an intuitive graphical interface and also a traditional shell command line environment for more advanced administration. The option to configure policies in a graphical environment is very easy to understand and also simple to teach someone else unfamiliar with the product.Improvements to My Organization:It’s much easier to share administration tasks with more people. Due to the flexibility and ease of certain features, I can delegate more simple and routine tasks to other administrators and I don’t have to be the “Firewall” guy all the time.Room for Improvement:I think the graphical interface always has room for improvement. I would like to see more attention put towards the logging functions as well.Use of Solution:I worked with this solution daily for over 12 months.Stability Issues:I encountered several strange issues in v5.0 (and earlier) OS versions. Strange anomalies like random reloads, VPN instability and unexplained policy changes. However, all of these issues were resolved in v5.2.Technical Support:I always had great experiences with Fortinet. I worked with them several times to resolve configuration issues and process RMA’s on failed equipment, which was rare.Previous Solutions:I’ve personally used Cisco ASA and PIX architecture and after using Fortinet, I always prefer FortiGate products in terms of functionality and ease of use. I recommend these to clients looking for a firewall solution.Initial Setup:Usually always simple and straight forward. I can get a client up and running with most standard policies and inbound/outbound control in a single day and make adjustments as needed. I can usually preconfigure Fortinet products and send them out for install.Implementation Team:I always implemented via in-house. I think the most important advice is to always test new configurations in the lab especially, when upgrading firmware.ROI:From my experience, FortiGate products are affordable and worth the investment.Other Advice:I think for almost any small to mid-size business this is a great solution. Fortigate should definitely be considered before choosing a more expensive and complicated product.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
