FortiManager Network Security Management Appliances were designed to provide security management for large enterprise organizations and service providers. They enable you to centrally manage any number of Fortinet devices, including FortiGate®, FortiWiFi™, and FortiCarrier™. You also have the flexibility to logically group devices into thousands of administrative domains (ADOMs) to better control your complex network or multi-tenant environment. FortiManager provides the high performance and scalability you need to efficiently apply policies and distribute content security/firmware updates, regardless of the size of your network. FortiManager is one of several versatile Fortinet Management Products that provide a diversity of deployment types, growth flexibility, advanced customization through APIs and simple licensing.

We think highly of the FortiGate appliances ability to provide various security functions within one appliance, rather than forcing us to implement specific security software one by one. In addition, we liked its clear fee structure for initial licensing based on an annual per store cost. The deployment of FortiGate appliances enabled us to share a huge amount of data in a secure manner. We plan to drive further development, including a management system to understand all aspects of our outlets, such as photo shooting status, the delivery of commercial messages to our customers to highlight our outlets and the delivery of streaming images to our employees as part of training. Furthermore, we will consider developing a dedicated store system tailored for digital photography, rather than use a common POS system for retail outlets modified for photo studios.
