We are evaluating different solution for Traffic shaping, IPS, firewall and Vpn. We came across Fortinet.
It seems to do all those function and more in one appliance. It`s called unified threat management but can it sustains
all those functions concurrently without choking? I am worry to put all my eggs in one basket. I know they use ASIC
instead of CPU but I would like to see all eight functions activated (firewall, antivirus, anti-spam, IPS, IDS, traffic
I know Fortinet/Fortigate is used in universities. If you are using it, can you give me some feedback?
Which functions are activated?
Which model do you have?
How much traffic goes through Fortinet?
Did it ever choke trying to do everything?
