What do you like best about the product?
In my last job our firwall was fortigate 60f, it's a perfect product and there's no issue with it it must get 10/10 but when i tried to add other site to the same network they asked me to by a new one and pay for annually for tow products, so i switched to sophos and because this the product will get 9/10 sorry about that
What do you dislike about the product?
That i must buy another product to add a new site, and it will cost a new annual payment.
This is all, but if any ask me for a firewall and i know that he have a one site sure i will recommend fortigate
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Safe my site from outside and inside attack and give me the status of my network and weekly reports about it.
It's good product, and i hope that you keep on going

It's an easy security solution to deploy and added great value protecting our workloads from known vulnerabilities. We used it as a hub spoke topology.

Greate Centralized Management Platform on the Fortinet Cloud

What do you like best about the product?
FortiGate Cloud is a helpful tool to manage FortiGate at multiple sites.
FortiGate Cloud is a Cloud-based SaaS and does not require maintenance or management (like dedicated appliance); the IT's admin only focuses on how to manage FortiGate with FortiGate Cloud.
FortiGate Cloud provides many features to manage FortiGate (such as management, reporting and log analytics).
In the case of do not have a FortiGate Cloud Subscription, we can also use the "log retention" feature (FortiGate Cloud received and stored log of Fortigate for 7 days without any fee).
What do you dislike about the product?
I do not have any dislike point yet for this product
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Centralized Log Retention for FortiGate at Multiple Sites.

Effective and easy to set up

Provides as good if not better coverage as our on premise NGFW. Easy to deploy and set up.
Unique Master-Slave sync in HA mode as well as API calls to the AWS infrastructure which means we don't need to run a lambda to supervise the state of the master and change the routing. The API calls take care of this.

All the features I need, Fortigate's features are covered, and now I can use Fortigate products in multiple clouds to help us achieve hybrid clouds.

I am testing this product at the AWS re:Invent 2017 in Las Vegas. The free trial was pretty easy to set up, and the support was adequate.

Not operationally ready with autoscaling.

  • October 31, 2017
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

Tried the cloud formation template for autoscaling and found the worker node was not working. Logs showed it crashing out when trying to do an API call to the Firewalls. Updated the worker code, started again, and crashed again.
Without the worker node your not even getting the two on demand nodes sync'd.
