Fortinet FortiSandbox Room for Improvement

With the 3000D we had some issues with the FortiOS version. I don't remember which one it was, however, there was an interaction problem or a performance issue. It might have been the FortiOS issue as it was a very particular, very specific issue and the performance was very high. All the indicators were in the highest levels and yet the equipment was not necessarily overloaded from doing analysis.

I haven't interacted directly with these solutions. I mainly use it for design and not how they work, and therefore I haven't interacted directly with them. It would be hard for me to comment on missing features in general.

The price just could be a little bit better, I would say, however, that depends a lot on the manufacturer. If you were to compare prices between vendors and manufacturers, you would see that the lowest equipment in the Sandbox line is quite expensive for a new customer. Those kinds of clients that don't have a very big budget or at least a medium one, need to rely on cloud solutions more than hardware, as hardware is expensive. 

It would be ideal if the product had the ability to, if it cannot detect something correctly, to be able to put it on hold until a new release. That would be very circumstantial, actually. However, it could help protect against unknown entities.

There could be more templates and a higher number of simulated VMs to configure more use cases. Sometimes we need to configure many use cases in many different environments, and if the number of VMs that we configure is limited, we have to remove some and reconfigure the environment if we need another environment. It's better to have more use cases and more simulated environments that we can configure.

While support is okay, it can always be slightly improved. 

It can be difficult if you need to use the Command Line Interface (CLI). It's much easier if you only have to deal with the GUI. 

The solution has all of the features we need.

The use cases in Fortinet FortiSandbox are not good. It is difficult to upload a custom VM for Fortinet FortiSandbox. The integration of Fortinet FortiSandbox with other Fortinet or FortiGate firewalls is not good. VMs are already installed in the hardware and are working fine, but we tried to approve the custom VM many times but did not succeed.

Fortinet FortiSandbox is complex in uploading the custom VM. Fortinet FortiSandbox needs to improve the customization and the custom framework updates.

Fortinet FortiSandbox can improve by decreasing the time of analysis response. Other solutions have a better response time, such as WildFire.

If we can have more dashboards, it would be good.
