Fortinet Routers


2007/04/11

I'm no longer selling this product. The company is simply horrible at support and customer service.

I just wanted to let all of my customers know that I've taken on the Fortinet line of firewall routers (http://www.fortinet.com )

Some of you are already using Fortinet, so please keep me in mind for competitive pricing on any renewals.

For those of you who don't know, Fortinet makes a line of firewall routers that optionally include subscription services for antivirus, spam, intrusion protection and more. Those services complement existing antivirus and spam filtering - I still recommend both email server scanning and scanning at the individual PC for best protection. Forttinet is the leading UTM (unified threat management) vendor in the industry and also the fastest growing security company worldwide.

Those of you who have known me a long time know that I don't do things like this lightly. I investigate and test for a long time before I take the plunge to actually represent and sell a product. I'm convinced Fortinet offers tremendous value and performance.

Fortinet is competitively priced and has the features needed for today's internet. These are not home appliance type routers such as you'll find at Staples or CompUSA. These compete with Cisco, Sonicwall, and the like, but are not as expensive and often surpass them in features and performance.

One of the most interesting features is that these can be installed "in-line" to do transparent packet filtering. You can, for example, put one of these between an existing router and your switch. Another is time based rule sets: if your organization never is working at 2:00 AM or on Sundays, you can program these to disallow access during those times (and of course this can be overridden for a one-time circumstance).

There are many other important features and demo units are available. Contact me for more information.
