Fortinet Named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Enterprise Network Firewall

By Trish Borrmann | February 12, 2018

Fortinet is proud to announce that we have been named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Enterprise Network Firewall. The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is based on the ranking of vendors by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of end-user reviews and the vendor’s overall user ratings.

We take special pride in this distinction as it is based entirely on feedback from customers. 707* Fortinet customers of all sizes  submitted reviews from across the spectrum of industries, including healthcare, education, government, and financial services. We believe that this recognition reflects our ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality security solutions and services possible.

While the Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice distinction is based solely on end user reviews, Gartner analysts have also recognized Fortinet in six Gartner Magic Quadrants since June 2017, including, Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls, Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms, Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management, Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management (SMB Multifunction Firewalls), Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls, and Magic Quadrant for Wired & Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure**.

Here is a small sample of the comments and feedback posted by Fortinet customers on the Gartner Peer Insights website:

Financial Services

"Fortinet Provided An End-To-End Security Solution For Our Global Financial Business," CISO, $3-10B company

“Fortinet has been a partner in building out our security strategy. They have become part of the team and are viewed as a resource rather than a vendor. The technology is innovative, efficient, and provides an end-to-end solution that has advanced our security program tremendously in a very short time.”

"Our Implementation Went Flawlessly And Fortinet's Sales Team Was Available The Whole Time," Infrastructure and Operations Professional, $3-10B company

“Sales reps were responsive and knowledgeable. Sales engineers took a personal interest in making sure our onboarding went smoothly. We have open communication and solid relationships with our sales rep and the sales engineer. Our sales rep always intercedes on our behalf when we have any issues.”

"Great Product, Great Price!!!," CTO, 10-30B USD company

“Fortinet has been a great partner to work with. Wish I had known about them before.”

Government

"The Implementation Was Successful And Smooth," Technology Infrastructure Engineer

“The administration interface is very intuitive, easy to manage, it is possible to configure in a very easy way each functionality incorporated by the equipment, [including] effective control of IPS functionalities, antivirus, web filtering and application control.”

Fortinet Significantly Improves Security And Manageability At A Lower Cost," Information Security Senior Analyst

“Our experience with Fortinet has always been very positive. In recent years, they have stepped up their game with the market offerings in terms of product functionality and offerings. Sales and pre-sales support have been great. Our most recent purchases and upgrades were part of a major focus on Information Security and the FortiGate UTM features were a huge bonus. An all in one solution with the FortiGate allowed us to remove legacy products that were being maintained for the sake of "not changing." The cost savings were tremendous for our client.”

Healthcare

"Product Had Key Features Needed To Support Our AWS Virtual Private Cloud Design," Enterprise Architecture and Technology Innovation Professional

“The FortiGate firewall has specific features which were needed to support our [AWS] cloud design. We were already a Fortinet customer prior to developing our virtual private cloud architecture, so it made sense to evaluate the FortiGate firewall for its compatibility with our proposed network design. Within the last year, we have been assigned a new Fortinet account team, who been very responsive to our questions and concerns regarding new deployments and upgrades for both on premise and AWS cloud deployments, so we're happy about that.”

Excellent, Easy To Manage Firewalls," Director IT

“Fortigate Firewalls have been reliable and are constantly being improved via software updates. I would have implemented more of the offered features. For example, use the Fortigate end-point software rather than using a separate vendor.”

Education

"Excellent Product With Innovative Features," CTO

“The implementation was on time, with the complete accomplishment of our objectives and in the costs. The product is excellent, high performance, and completely transparent for the users and applications.”

"Fortinet products ease the burden of complicated routing configuration and changes," Vice President, IT

“Fortinet support is knowledgeable, reliable, and an extension of our team. Our Fortinet Account Manager is constantly in touch with us about roadmaps and any other changes. The Fortinet Engineer assigned to our account is always available to our in-house system engineers for a quick conversation or a site visit if necessary.”

 

We’re proud to have been able to play such a valued role in helping protect the valuable assets of these and so many other organizations, and are honored to be recognized as a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Enterprise Network Firewall. We strongly encourage IT professionals in any industry to consult Gartner Peer Insights before making a decision on a solution to help take the guesswork out of the selection and procurement process.
