Pros
"Fortinet is very user-friendly for customers.""Fortinet FortiEDR's firewalling, rule creation, monitoring, and inspection profiles are great.""The product detects and blocks threats and is more proactive than firewalls.""Fortinet FortiEDR's scalability is quite good, and you can add licenses to the solution.""The product's initial setup phase is very easy.""The features that I have found most valuable are the ability to customize it and to reduce its size. It lets you run in a very small window in terms of memory and resources on legacy cash registers.""Exceptions are easy to create and the interface is easy to follow with a nice appearance.""It is stable and scalable."

More Fortinet FortiEDR Pros →

"The initial setup is very straightforward and easy.""It is a good endpoint solution. That's the reason we chose it. We looked at other solutions, such as CrowdStrike, and based on the cost and the services it delivers, it was the better choice.""The portal is the most valuable feature because it provides us with a single pane of glass view and is highly intuitive.""The fact that SentinelOne is actively looking for threats and runs them against the hash on the Internet to determine if they are malicious or not, is what takes it to the next level compared to other antivirus products.""The most valuable feature is the machine learning capability, as opposed to the traditional rule-based antivirus.""The protection SentinelOne Singularity Complete provides to our endpoint devices in terms of cybersecurity is valuable.""Device control and network control are valuable.""The overall product quality is good."

More SentinelOne Singularity Complete Pros →

Cons
"Once, we had an event that was locked and blocked, but information about it came to us two or three days later.""The solution is not stable.""We've encountered challenges during API deployment, occasionally resulting in unstable environments.""We'd like to see more one-to-one product presentations for the distribution channels.""It takes about two business days for initial support, which is too slow in urgent situations.""We find the solution to be a bit expensive.""Making the portal mobile friendly would be helpful when I am out of office.""Integration with Azure and SaaS provisioning tools could improve Fortinet FortiEDR."

More Fortinet FortiEDR Cons →

"They can improve the administrative interface. They can make it more user-friendly.""In terms of improvement, they should work on agents' updates because that is not a strong part. It's not their strong point. It's not straightforward to upgrade agents. I send them questions about it. They already worked on this and they promised that in the next release that they will show me their solution for it. But this year I have had complaints about agents' updates, that they aren't clear.""In terms of areas for improvement in SentinelOne Singularity Complete, it needs to give more straightforward directions or communication about detection or what has been detected.""The documentation provided for implementation is not adequate and has caused us challenges.""There are features that I would like them to add. They have little to do with endpoint protection, but if they could add encryption and DLP on, it would make it even better.""If there is a vulnerability that we know about, I search for that vulnerability—for example, Adobe. There are different versions of Adobe, but I'm not able to compile them into one report. I have to create separate reports for those versions.""The channel policy has room for improvement.""All they need to do to improve it is for it to grow further. The hackers don't sleep. If the hackers don't sleep, the solution continually needs to be updated. They need to keep ahead of the hackers."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I know it is tough to get big budget additions up front, but I highly recommend deploying environment wide and adding the forensic service."
  • "There are no issues with the pricing."
  • "The price is comprable to other endpoint security solutions."
  • "The pricing is typical for enterprises and fairly priced."
  • "I'm not familiar with pricing, but it looks a bit costly compared to other vendors I think."
  • "The pricing is good."
  • "I would rate the solution's pricing an eight out of ten."
  • "The hardware costs about €100,000 and about €20,000 annually for access."
  • More Fortinet FortiEDR Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The price is competitive, if you compare it with other solutions on the market."
  • "Spend money on the security for the endpoint."
  • "The price for it is very competitive compared to other Next Gen EPP."
  • "The per-seat cost is low, but you have to commit to a certain number of licenses for a year."
  • "The larger count you have, the deeper discount you will receive in your contract."
  • "Our licensing fees are about $5 USD per endpoint, per month."
  • "USD$6 per end point which decreases as end points increase."
  • "Pricing is a bit of a pain point. That's where we have not been able to convince all of our customers to use SentinelOne. The pricing is still on the higher side. It's almost double the price, if not more, of a normal antivirus, such as NOD32, Kaspersky, or Symantec."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by Fortinet FortiEDR users.

    An Owner at a security firm says, "The features that I have found most valuable are the ability to customize it and to reduce its size. It lets you run in a very small window in terms of memory and resources on legacy cash registers. The customer has literally about 800 cash registers. That was the use case for Fortinet FortiEDR - to get that down into a tiny space. The only way to do that was to use this product because it had that ability to unbundle services that were a surplus.”

    Chandan M., Chief Technical Officer at Provision Technologies LLP, mentions, “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.” He also adds, “The security is also very good and the firewall response is good.”

    Harpreet S., Information Technology Support Specialist at Chemtrade Logistics, explains, "It notifies us if there's any suspicious file on any PC. If any execution or similar kind of thing is happening, it just alerts us. It doesn't only alert. It also blocks the execution until we allow it. We check whether the execution is legitimate or not, and then approve it or keep it blocked. This gives us a little bit of control over this mechanism. Fortinet FortiEDR is also very straightforward and easy to maintain."

    DeAndre V., Senior Network Administrator at a financial services firm, states, “The dashboard is easy to follow and use. The deployment and uninstalling were easy. I like the detailed information about the path of a file that might be suspicious. Being able to check that out was easy to follow. Exceptions are easy to create and the interface is easy to follow with a nice appearance.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Jeff D. who is an Operations Manager at Proton Dealership IT, tells us that "The detection rate for Sentinel One has been excellent and we have been able to resolve many potential threats with zero client impact. The ability to deploy via our RMM allows us to quickly secure new clients and provides peace of mind."

    "The most valuable feature varies from client to client but having absolute clarity of what happened and the autonomous actions of SentinelOne are what most people find the most assuring." relates Rae J., Director IR and MDR at a tech services company.
