    Proactive monitoring, reliable, and supports dual-factor authentication
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable feature of this solution is what the devices are used for. We have big backups for our Cradlepoint solutions, but FortiMonitor is a great routing device and we love working with them."
    • "We use FortiToken, and it's a pain to use because you have to send things through your phone and then confirm by email. Only after this can you log in. It's dual-factor authentication. I wish that I could just log in or bring up a dashboard where I could log in from."

    What is our primary use case?

    FortiMonitor is used for high-level up and down monitoring, as well as proactive management and monitoring.

    What is most valuable?

    FortiMonitor is a great compliment to Cradlepoint.

    The most valuable feature of this solution is what the devices are used for. We have big backups for our Cradlepoint solutions, but FortiMonitor is a great routing device and we love working with them.

    This solution supports dual-factor authentication.

    What needs improvement?

    I have had a few problems when connecting from home. When I work at the office, however, I have no trouble with it.

    We use FortiToken, and it's a pain to use because you have to send things through your phone and then confirm by email. Only after this can you log in. It's dual-factor authentication. I wish that I could just log in or bring up a dashboard where I could log in from.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    FortiMonitor's stability is great. Unless the carrier has a network outage, they stay up and work.

    January 2023
    Find out what your peers are saying about Fortinet, SolarWinds, LogicMonitor and others in Network Monitoring Software. Updated: January 2023.
    670,400 professionals have used our research since 2012.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    FortiMonitor is scalable.

    We deploy, approximately 1,000 per month.

    I can't offer a number for all of our corporate users. We do retail, people going into businesses, people dealing with businesses, one on one, or, one to 100 things. Because we are not direct clients, I can't disclose anything about my business, but I can tell what we resell to other people.

    We use the FortiClient firewall and there are approximately 2,400 users.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    We did use another solution. However, we have switched to Fortinet because of the discounts we have been given. Our choice basically came down to price.

    How was the initial setup?

    I was not involved with the initial setup of this solution.

    We require API integrations with our own network, therefore I assume we have 60 employees watching it 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    We have a large customer base for Fortinet, and the additional buying power got us really great discounts.

    What other advice do I have?

    We are FortiMonitor partners as well as Fortinet platinum partners.

    I would rate FortiMonitor an eight out of ten.
