FortiGate NGFW is best solution to manage & protect Enterprises for next generation threat vectors .

  • November 08, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Fortgate NGFW is based on ASIC (Application specific Integreted Archetecture), allowing it to control the allowlisting & blocklisting of multiple apps. It also provides a granular reporting part with the help of Forti Analyzer that increases the visibility of the entire IT environment; Many threats cab be prevented if you keep a closed eye on reporting part only.
What do you dislike?
Since this is time for perimeter-less security, especially in hybrid environments, employees are working from everywhere, Forcepoint needs to focus more on CASB (Cloud Access Security Brocker)
Where employees are using multiple apps, some are sanctions some are not. Somtimes they downloads malcious apps which may exfiltrate the secure data.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Fortigate has the best capability to provide Secure SDWAN, an in-built feature of NGFW; you can connect multiple branches securely. It can remove the MPLS & save a good amount of money.

What do you like best?
Setup was a breeze; the web interface is very well designed. The ability to use the CLI via the web interface is mind-blowing
What do you dislike?
Some features feel like they are only geared towards Microsoft Server and active directory. The world isn't just Microsoft anymore
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I needed a reliable firewall that was able to handle deep packet inspection as well as supporting usual L3 routing and remote access for workers.

Fortigate NGFW Review

  • October 26, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Fortigate NGFW is a firewall that provides traditional firewall features as well as next-generation features such as URL filtering, antivirus, IPS ability. Its GUI is most uncomplicated compared to all other firewalls. It Provides real-time protection from network-based attacks and blocks harmful resources.
What do you dislike?
Though its GUI is user-friendly, we usually do firmware upgrades; after upgrades, its GUI changes, and we have to navigate options again. Syslog configuration is complex as well.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Fortigate NGFW provides Visibility over the network and manages network policies. It also feeds IPS features for real-time protection from attackers and malware.

Web UI, simple but very effective management. No need to install any client. Accessible from everywhere.

Sometimes it is hard to troubleshoot. Network performance issues require trial & error till we identify the problem. Maybe some wizard to help troubleshoot issues.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
The product provides secure access to remote deployments, with strong security and management and access compartmentalization

I have shared experience about the Fortinet firewall.

  • August 22, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The most liked feature about the troubleshooting part of Fortinet. the troubleshooting of Fortinet firewall is much much easier than Palo Alto and other vendor firewalls also the Cli troubleshooting is very easy and you can direct jump to the cli and easily configure security policy with the help of right click on security policy and open in the console.

Also, I have observed that SD-WAN of Fortinet is also more convenient than Palo Alto.

You can also configure the IPsec tunnel in interface mode which is not possible in Palo Alto.
What do you dislike?
The most disliked thing and the also irritating thing is the GUI of Fortinet firewall and also its completely changes with every next firmware update.

Also approx in all hardware firewalls you will not receive the hard disc to store the logs, you will require a forti analyzer to store the logs.

Other vendors have a dedicated commit feature but here we just click and it saved the configuration so if by mistake do the wrong config then it's directly loading which is not correct according to me.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I have achieved the SD-WAN more conveniently as compared to Palo Alto and other vendors. also in Fortinet, we get the feature of flow-based or proxy based in UTM for better enhancement which is not provided by other firewall vendors.
