The product is the main gateway to protect us from spam and/or malicious mail activities.

We use Fortinet FortiMail for our email gateway. It's an anti-spam. It secures emails from all anti-spam emails, as well as Malware, which is an email from phishing attacks, from whatever Malware is in the email, that are sent to the company as well as outbound emails. We are using InPost to secure both inbound and outbound emails. As a result, no one, not even from within the company, can send an anti-spam message to the outside world.

We are using Fortinet FortiMail for safe emailing. We use two versions of the solution 200E and 1000D.

We are an integrator company, so we are installing to these products, the different customers. We explain Fortinet solutions to our customers, and if they want, we can do a proof of concept for one month or so. Then, if they are happy and want to move forward, we will install it on their site. After that, we provide support for one to three years, depending on the contract. I did the POC of FortiMail for three big companies, and later they had no budget because they ran into a cash flow problem, and we ended up just waiting. Still, we are contacting our customers and trying to sell the Fortinet product FortiMail.

We are not using FortiMail as a mail server but we are using it only as a security gateway where it scans all the incoming and outgoing emails in our organization.

We have FortiMail running on-premises on a virtual client. It is currently serving emails for about 400 employees that we have here. All this is taking place on the same server, and for the past three months it has been our main guarantee for email security.

The solution is primarily used for identifying spam, viruses, zero-day spamming, and any other kind of spam issues our organization might face.

We have implemented this solution in our VMware environment to host our own mail domain. So when the mails come in, we use the security profile and all the features of the FortiMail very efficiently - all the blacklists, safe lists, block lists, and other securities that are there to change and contain. We use spamming and content filtering and attachment filtering.

We have the FortiMail appliance, and it is installed on-premises. It provides email filtering for our Exchange 2013 server.

Our primary use case of this solution is to protect data from our customers and from our internal network. We now have a substitute for the Palo Alto Network and nowadays we also use FortiGate.

I'm not working on the local FortiMail installation and really concentrate on servicing and deploying FortiMail to clients. The primary uses depending on the client are anti-spam and anti-fishing as well as threat isolation.

Huthaifa Smadi - PeerSpot reviewer

Our primary use for this solution is as a secure email gateway. I just use the blocking feature and spam detection.

Our primary use case of this solution is for its anti-spam properties. In order to protect our mail server in our data center from spams, we need an anti-spam program.

We are a solution integrator, and we have been selling this product to our customers. We have three years of experience with it. This is primarily used for anti-spam, in front of Microsoft Office 365. This solution is deployed in a public cloud environment.
