Our primary use cases for Fortinet FortiEDR are cash registers and endpoint, and point of sales. The reason we originally started with FortiClient with one of our clients in the first place was that they were able to have legacy cash registers, a really old technology, which we had to get to run in a small resource space, and FortiClient, which was the predecessor, allowed us to literally pick and choose what features we wanted in the client and reduce its size, which you couldn't do with any other types of clients that were out there. That's how we started with that. It is mostly on premise and any cloud services that we use are directly from Fortinet themselves. I would call that public cloud. We do run some of the customer's environment in private cloud, basically co-location. This has provided the services back to their dataset. I am talking about Fortinet's cloud for the public. For the private stuff it was basically out at Q9, which is the co-location provider.

We would have used this solution for endpoint detection EDR, which we don't currently have. We wanted to see how it works with the discovery of the history of some things that might come up.

We use this product to deploy to all the clients we have to monitor any kind of suspicious activities occurring on the end points besides antivirus. This will kind of automate their response basically with the EDR. I'm a security analyst and we are customers of Fortinet.

We had a ransomware attack in 2017, and that's when we went with enSilo, which is now called FortiEDR. It helps us to detect the hash files and all that. So far, it's really good. It detects any kind of anomaly. If any installation is happening, it checks the process and everything else and lets us know how it works.
