"Ease of use in deploying and having it up and running requires minimal knowledge."
"I like the solution's load balance with DNS intelligence."
"Content caching and content compression are good features."

"The solution provides high-level services such as availability, redundancy, and load balancing between servers."
"Technical support is very good."

"Because it is so generic, the documentation requires special attention. A person who has not worked on Fortinet FortiADC or a similar product will struggle to understand what the document is trying to say. The documentation could be more specific, and more detailed."
"The solution's WAF needs an upgrade because it is not as good as FortiWeb, VMware, F5, or Imperva."

"It can be better with web application firewalls."
"No solution is 100% secure and the security could always be worked on."
"FortiGate could be improved on the security end because we've had some incidents with the customer. Otherwise, there is no problem."
"In my experience, Fortinet FortiWeb could improve the intelligent features to acknowledge whether any threat or incident that's running happened. Then give us the ability to escalate it to layer 2 or layer 3 in the network operations."
