"Version 9.1 has been an improvement on previous versions. It's a good solution for SMB."
"The network segmentation is the most important part of the solution. The integration with the Zero Trust Access solution is a crucial part of segmenting your network."
"It's easy to connect to a VPN without any hassles."
"There are some features that are working well."
"Fortinet FortiNAC is a stable solution."
"The most valuable features of Fortinet FortiNAC are access control, automation, artificial intelligence, analysis, and security, and it is a unified solution. You can combine a lot of features within the solution."
"Fortinet FortiNAC has good user account customization."
"The features are more expandable."
"Ruckus technical support is very good and helpful whenever we need them."
"I find the solution to be very rich in features."
"The solution is easy to use, well designed, robust, and has good traffic capacity."
"The automation in Fortinet FortiNAC could improve."
"Integration is hard in Fortinet FortiNAC, but they are evolving and getting better. For example, with Cisco, Aruba, Huawei, and Extreme devices, Fortinet FortiNAC is working properly, but some other devices have problems."
"There could be better integration with legacy equipment. It integrates perfectly with all Fortinet solutions, but if you look at other third-party integrations—not on the networking part; but more on the security infrastructure part—it's more limited."
"We have some stability issues with the solution, the network drops out too often."
"FortiNAC could be more scalable."
"I hope that Fortinet can add a feature with a remediation mechanism when you find a broken piece so that you can click on something and download the needed update or resolve the firewall issue more easily. Currently, we have to use an external remediation server to download updates."
"The deployment of Fortinet FortiNAC could be better. When we are deploying the solution we have some level of dependencies with other vendors for their connection to Fortinet FortiNAC. Without these dependencies, it would be better."
"The GUI is a little bit strange — different than other Fortinet products."
"The hardest part we've had to deal with is trying to find some physical product recently as everything is going like hotcakes."
