"The initial setup was straightforward."
"This solution enables you to centralize the rules and the configuration of all the equipment."
"The capability of centralized management is valuable. We can configure all firewall boxes with the same configuration."
"FortiManager's most valuable features are web-based or web-rule-based policies, SD-WAN, and the ease of upgrading to new firmware."
"It's very easy to install, and it's easy to discover and communicate with your device."
"It makes management very easy."
"It's a scalable product."
"Stability is good within the product."
"We are currently working on rule review and compliance. The logging features are good."
"The product's most valuable feature is vulnerability management."
"The solution's most valuable and unique assets are the vulnerability management and change management solutions because they identify mistakes in the network before implementation which reduces risks."
"The most valuable features of Skybox Security Suite are all the modules that are provided, such as vulnerability assessments and network, and firewall assessments."
"The revalidation and policy recertifications are most valuable."
"I am impressed with the tool's change management, firewall and network assurance."
"The most valuable features are the rule compliance and the OS vulnerability checks."
"I think that compliance checks and policy compliance are the product's good features."
"Its licensing model should be improved."
"In the next release, FortiManager should include more protection features."
"Pricing-wise, it could always be less, even though it is less expensive than Palo Alto."
"The documentation could be better."
"The dashboard could use some improvement."
"The SD-WAN solution is difficult to manage on FortiManager because you need to share some configurations on the firewall side. Sometimes you lose all connectivity with the firewall, so it is challenging to apply the default configuration to the SD-WAN solution."
"The fabric for integrations or connections could be improved."
"When I started, it was a bit difficult, however, now it's okay. It can be a bit complex for basic users."
"There are multiple dashboards but no custom dashboard. It would be good to include a custom dashboard so that we can actually choose which field and what kinds of things we want to look at."
"The tool does not offer options for customization."
"The solution needs improvement in firewall configuration checks. I would also like to see more configuration checks for Forcepoint and for other non-supported firewalls."
"Skybox should improve their UX features by making them easier to use."
"They are not satisfied with the complexity of the solution and the price."
"Skybox Security Suite's attack surface management feature needs improvement."
"Skybox Security Suite can improve the change management module. It is the one part of the tool that is used with the firewall devices and you have a change management module that is used to record changes of all firewalls in the company. It's not compatible with all brands, this is where they can improve the solution."
"There is room for improvement in the technical support."
