Cons
"The EDR console should have more extensive reporting. You shouldn't need to purchase FortiAnalyzer. It should be included in the EDR part. The security adviser cloud platform could be improved with more options for exclusive or intensive rules for devices.""To improve Fortinet, we need to see more features and technology areas at the endpoint level introduced.""The amount of usage, the number of details we get, or the number of options that can be tweaked is limited in comparison to that with other EDR solutions""The only minor concern is occasional interference with desired programs.""Everything with Fortinet having to do with their cloud services. They need to invest more in their internal infrastructure that they are running in the cloud. One of the things I find with their cloud environment compared to others' is that they go cheap on the equipment. So it causes some performance degradation.""FortiEDR could add a separate scanning dashboard. In incident management, we prefer to remove the endpoint system from the environment and scan the system. We typically use Symantec for that, but if we want to use FortiEDR for that, then we need a scanning tab to clarify things.""Cannot be used on mobile devices with a secure connection.""The security should be strong for the cloud. Some applications are on-prem and some are on the cloud. Fortinet should also have strong security for the cloud. There should be more security for the cloud."

More Open EDR Cons →

"Sangfor Endpoint Secure performs poorly.""Sometimes, the VPN is not secure and doesn't work properly in Sangfor Endpoint Secure.""It would be much more convenient if the migration tool could be installed directly on the customer's VMs, enabling a smoother migration process to the new infrastructure, with potential restrictions addressed accordingly.""It is complicated to establish a tunnel due to technical issues in the VPN system.""Currently, the tool lacks reporting functionalities.""There are a few areas for improvement. We have encountered licensing issues on occasion, and sometimes updates don't apply properly.""I believe Sangfor Endpoint Secure could improve in terms of its user interface and management capabilities."

    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.

    Open EDR® is a sophisticated, free, open source endpoint detection and response solution. It provides analytic detection with Mitre ATT&CK visibility for event correlation and root cause analysis of adversarial threat activity and behaviors in real time. This world-class endpoint telemetry platform is available to all cyber-security professionals, and every sized organization, to defend against threat actors and cyber criminals.

    Endpoint Secure provides a holistic response to malware infections and APT breaches across the entire organization's network, with ease of management, operation, and maintenance. The solution is scalable to meet the needs of any organization needing on-premise management, cloud management, or a hybrid solution when it comes to endpoint security, protection, detection, and response.
