Offers behavior analysis, improved our endpoint security posture but a lot of false positives where things are incorrectly flagged that require manual configuration to allow
I would like to improve the integration process because a big selling point was the ease of integration within the Fortinet ecosystem. I would expect more built-in collaboration to allow for easier threat mitigation across Fortinet systems. The strength of FortiEDR lies in its overall ability to protect us from new threats. We have encountered issues with it as well. We've had a lot of false positives; things incorrectly flagged that require manual configuration to allow. Even worse, after we allow a legitimate program, it sometimes gets flagged again after an update. This has caused a lot of extra work for my team. I would like to see improved heuristics so the system better understands what's legitimate and doesn't keep blocking it after minor updates.

Advanced vulnerability Management solution with out-of-the-box integrations
If customers are only looking for a patch management system, then I would definitely recommend SanerNow. But if you look at today's market, there are already many tools similar to SanerNow that give fragments of the overall functionality of an ITSM tool, and enterprise customers tend not to be interested in tools that only provide fragmented functionality. Instead, they need a tool that can give them complete IT service management, including service orchestration, assurance, and automation; that is, the entire gamut of modules in one solution. Vendors that can provide this include BMC, Micro Focus, and SolarWinds. These vendors cater to the overall requirements of the customer and not just a specific fragment, especially for those customers wishing to break down silos and unify their solutions. Thus, if you're looking for a more comprehensive solution that unifies ITSM and IT operations management as a whole, SanerNow needs to work towards a few additional modules which support observability.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The ease of deployment and configuration is valuable. It's very easy compared to other vendors like Sophos. Sophos' configuration is complex. Fortinet is a lot easier to understand. You don't need a lot of admin knowledge to do the configuration."
"Fortinet has helped free up around 20 percent of our staff's time to help us out."
"I like FortiClient EMS. FortiEDR has a lot of great features like lockdown mode, remote wipes, and encryption. I can set malware outbreak policies and controls for detecting abnormalities. You can also simulate phishing attacks."
"The setup is pretty simple."
"The main thing is that I feel safe. Because the processes that have been used to get a handle on the attackers are much better than other competitors"
"It is stable and scalable."
"The most valuable feature is the analysis, because of the beta structure."
"I get alerts when scripts are detected in the environment."
"Although it is, in fact, a complete vulnerability management solution, the most valuable feature is the patch management functionality. Most of our customers give preference to this tool over other tools when it comes to patch management."
 

Cons

"The SIEM could be improved."
"FortiEDR could add a separate scanning dashboard. In incident management, we prefer to remove the endpoint system from the environment and scan the system. We typically use Symantec for that, but if we want to use FortiEDR for that, then we need a scanning tab to clarify things."
"Cannot be used on mobile devices with a secure connection."
"Making the portal mobile friendly would be helpful when I am out of office."
"They can include the automation for the realtime updates. We have a network infrastructure with remote sites. Whenever they send updates, they are not automated. We have to go into the console and push those updates. I wish it was more automated. The update file is currently around 31 MB. It could be smaller."
"I would like the solution to extend beyond endpoint protection and include other attack surfaces such as other network components."
"To improve Fortinet, we need to see more features and technology areas at the endpoint level introduced."
"We'd like to see more one-to-one product presentations for the distribution channels."
"SanerNow has good integration with the more well known ITSM tools, but at the same time there are many other ITSM (IT Service Management) tools available in the market, including local tools here in India, and I'm not sure how SanerNow plans to integrate with them all out of the box."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The pricing is typical for enterprises and fairly priced."
"We got a good deal on licensing, so it is in the competitive range."
"It's moderately priced, neither cheap nor expensive."
"I know it is tough to get big budget additions up front, but I highly recommend deploying environment wide and adding the forensic service."
"It's not cheap, but it's not expensive either."
"I would rate the solution's pricing an eight out of ten."
"I'm not familiar with pricing, but it looks a bit costly compared to other vendors I think."
"It is expensive and I would rate it 8 on the scale."
"As with several other solutions such as Microsoft MECM and SCCM, the licensing for SanerNow involves per-device pricing for each kind of product or service on offer."
