I would recommend Fortinet if they have a medium budget and if they don't have much experience with the firewalls because it's easy to use and the administrative management is simple. Additionally, Fortinet has a good wireless solution that is very good for medium-sized enterprise organizations. I rate Fortinet FortiGate IPS an eight out of ten.

I rate FortiGate IPS 10 out of 10. I work with many companies, and I recommend it all the time. We build a solution based on what the company wants, and we often recommend it.

We are expanding our Fortinet for our cloud security. The VM will be implemented in our public cloud, which is where we operate. I wouldn't say it's specific to FortiGate; it applies to all firewalls. You should consider the simplicity of the task at hand, as well as the convenience of deployment, maintenance, and, most crucially, the availability of qualified personnel to carry it out. These are the reasons we chose Fortinet. I would rate Fortinet FortiGate IPS an eight out of ten.

I would advise others to go for the training courses. One good thing about FortiGate is that you have got free training. I would rate Fortinet FortiGate IPS an eight out of ten. It is quite a good product, and there isn't much to improve.

I'm a part of the team that is testing the Palo Alto solution. We are only responsible for testing to ensure that it matches what we want, but we are not responsible for making the actual decision. Another team will decide which solution to go for based on the contract in terms of money and other things. Technically, either FortiGate or Palo Alto will be able to provide what we want. I would rate Fortinet FortiGate IPS an eight out of ten. It is a good product.

On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate FortiGate IPS as a ten-out-of-ten. It is just that good.
