"The documentation has been satisfactory."
"The customer likes it for the graphs, the dynamics and the reporting functionality it offers."
"I am very comfortable with it, including it's reporting on threats and through its activities."
"It does a little bit better than some of the other products health-wise and updates-wise. It is really clear that a firewall is getting the signature updates in this timeframe. In some of the other products, usually, you have to go a couple of screens in to see that, but not so much in this product."
"The automation functionality has been most valuable. With a click of a button, we are able to automate provisioning, the build of new hardware and apply patches. These are all extremely important and differentiated tasks that can be automated in SaltStack."
"Fortinet FortiPortal could improve by providing a learning portal and better security."
"It's useful for us but if it had more educational reporting, it would good. It's not necessarily lacking but it's an area that could get better."
"I find their logging a little bit trickier to manage. The logging of events is broken up into a lot of different categories. Instead of breaking up my logs into several different places, I personally like to have all the events in one spot and then filter them down. In particular, I find that troubleshooting on Fortinet takes a little bit longer just because of those functional breakups in the logs."
"If you are a very small company or a person on your own, it's harder to get any response from technical support."
"This solution could be integrated with more hardware for an improved offering."
