Easy to deploy with good connectivity and robustness for managing WAN links
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature is connectivity."
  • "From a security perspective, FortiWAN needs to be improved."

What is our primary use case?

This solution manages WAN links.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is connectivity. Without this solution, the major complaints from our customers are related to connectivity with their networks.

What needs improvement?

From a security perspective, FortiWAN needs to be improved. The data in FortiWAN is not secure because they are not upgrading to the latest technology, whereas the OEMs are upgrading day by day.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no issues with stability. Everything is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable solution. We have 100 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have been in contact with Fortinet technical support and if we require anything then they are ready to provide support, as per our contract.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not complex. All of the Fortinet products are easy to deploy in the network. The deployment will take approximately one day.

What about the implementation team?

We used our own team to deploy FortiWAN and they also handle the maintenance.

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

FortiWAN is not a cheap solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have used many different solutions. Palo Alto and Cisco are more up to date security-wise than FortiWAN.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product and my only complaint is about the security.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
