“Talk Straight & Schools Broadband uses FortiGate Cloud for remote logging and administration of FortiGates as well as FortiWifi deployments, and I have found the product both user-friendly and feature-rich. FortiGate Cloud allows engineers to deploy wireless networks quickly and easily with minimal training, this is largely down to a well thought out UI. Being able to deploy Fortinet Access Points singly or in bulk without needing to have them shipped to our offices makes deployment much more efficient. With the cost-effective MSSP license, it means we can easily sell to education and B2B with a low-touch and automated deployment.”
