"I found that It's really good when comparing it to any other product or it is much better in terms of features that the customer requires."
"The most valuable features of this solution are its speed, reliability, and integration with the firewall."
"The most valuable features are central management and the many other features available."
"Fortinet FortiWLM is good for tracking assets, monitoring, and overall management."
"At the moment, particularly with the COVID-19 situation, the most valuable feature is probably the IPsec VPN, which is easy to implement with Fortinet."
"Although there are a few steps, the initial setup is pretty straightforward."
"The most valuable features are the roaming profile, the mesh, and the performance."
"This is the only product on the market currently that supports as many access points for wifi users."
"The solution has been stable."
"Cloud analytics that provide all its attributes."
"Cost is something that could be improved, but you have to pay for what you get."
"In the next release, they could improve by adding a controller-less server, or architecture that is provided in other solutions, such as Aruba. This would be a great benefit for customers."
"When using the FortiGate as the wireless controller, you cannot have automatic user registration, which is something that they should offer."
"Technical support is very poor. We are not satisfied with the technical support because there is not any direct person from Fortinet for any troubleshooting, which we expected."
"Documentation could be improved."
"The roaming of Fortinet FortiWLM could improve when comparing it to other solutions. We are missing some of the functionality in the controller. Additionally, they should offer more logs instead of using FortiAnalyzer because all the users will not be using the same thing."
"The interface could certainly do with some improvement. We have other customers with WiFi networks, and they always use Ubiquiti. With Ubiquiti, it's a much better user interface, and it is much easier to configure."
"The pricing model can be improved to encourage use by small business and individuals and the hardware could stand to be redesigned."
"The solution can be scaled but it has limitations from my experience."
"Inability to import a user with one click."
