Our previous security vendor used a very complicated licensing model, which meant that the equipment became expensive for us to maintain, support and upgrade. Fortinet's FortiGate appliances have greatly simplified the way we deploy sophisticated security technologies for our clients and have streamlined our administration, while reducing our costs.
