If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Fortinet FortiSandbox, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
We are resellers of the product. I worked as a systems engineer previously. I'm now a sales executive, however, previously, I was in charge of making all the designs and the architecture for the solutions, and therefore, I know the distribution of these products, how can they be used, and different scenarios. I know how to position, for example, a FortiGate inside of a network for network segmentation and also for perimeter protection. Working also for VPN solutions, we were using FortiClients in EMS. We can have a centralized solution for VPN and also endpoint protection. In terms of versions we deployed, there was FortiSandbox 1000D and also FortiSandbox 3000D. We try to integrate solutions together so they can have some feedback on each other and they can work better to provide security and to also sharpen the attack services. If you don't want to have any zero-day malware on your network, if you know that you will be literally exposed to those kinds of malware, it's good to have a solution such as this. That said, it's a big, big investment. It's a big investment for a business. If you really want to protect your information, if you're dealing with very, very delicate information, you need some kind of hardware or solution that can protect it from any kind of malware, especially those from zero-day. This Sandbox would be a must-have solution for those kinds of customers. I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten. That would be dependant on what types of third-party software a company has that the solution could integrate with effectively.
I have used it within the Fortinet ecosystem. The whole Fortinet ecosystem collaborates very well. It is a standalone product as well, but I haven't tested it as a standalone product. If I had a choice, I would opt for the cloud version. I currently have the on-premises version. I would rate Fortinet FortiSandbox a nine out of ten.
We use the on-premises deployment model of the solution. I'd recommend the solution. All of its features are readily available. I'd rate it nine out of ten.
I would recommend that for customers looking for a security solution, FortiSandbox is a good option. It's available on different platforms, both on and off-premises. It's easier for the customer to plug in any other security solution they may need to cover security issues depending on their environment. It's very easy to plug-in additional new features as opposed to most other security products where you have to find compatibility with other elements of the customer environment. And those options are usually challenging and expensive. I would rate this product eight out of 10.
I will rate this solution a seven out of ten. I would like to see an improvement in the end-point protection.
I will definitely recommend this solution to others. On a scale of one to ten, my rating will be an eight. In the next version I would love to see more integration and more products from other vendors.
We're a reseller. We use the cloud deployment model of the solution. I'd recommend the solution. The price point is decent and we've been satisfied with the results so far. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
This is a solution that I strongly recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
If you are an existing user of Fortinet and familiar with the interfaces of FortiGate and others then it will be easy for you. I don’t have a business relationship with Fortinet. I am a user. I would recommend this solution. I don’t have any complaints, so it is difficult to say what I would like to see in the next release. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
We are Platinum level partners, and I am a consultant. My advice would be to check the web reviews and you will find that Sandbox and FortiClient are not the best. If you check Gartner, you will see that McAfee and Microsoft are better. The setup and installation are easy and straightforward. If you a Symantec endpoint then it's easy and straightforward. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
If you aren't sure about the solution, buy the cloud version first. You can use it in their cloud. The solution is a seven out of ten. The product is good but it could be speedier. In addition, it's quite complex.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
