"The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""Fortinet is a great SD-WAN player when it comes to security capabilities.""It is a good product. We have just blocked everything coming from some geographical locations or certain countries, and it has been working very efficiently when I look at logs, events, and incidents generated from the system. It is generating very good analytic reports about it. This is the most valuable thing about this solution. It has load balancing and almost everything that a web application firewall needs. It is very flexible and easy to learn and configure. It can be easily learned and configured by using the information available on different channels such as YouTube.""It is easy to install and to maintain.""FortiGate is a stable product.""The most valuable feature is ease of use.""The solution is stable.""The most valuable features are support and security."

  • "FortiWeb is more expensive than some competing products."
  • "Due to the situation in Iran with the sanctions, the price of this solution is very expensive."
  • "It's an expensive solution, although there are no additional costs."
  • "It is fine now. We had to earlier negotiate the price."
  • "It is an expensive suite and it is an expensive solution, but it is a manageable one for an enterprise."
  • "Its subscription prices are cheaper, and it is not very expensive. From a price perspective, Fortinet is a very well-known security vendor. Subscriptions are very simple. They have a couple of licenses on an appliance, and that's it. The cost is not that big. One license is 40K, which they give with all the products. Another one includes the subscriptions for threat prevention, IPS, sandboxing, etc, which is more than enough."
