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 shaping, VPN)
I know Fortinet/Fortigate is used in universities. If you are using it, can you give me some feedback?
