Dear sir, With reference to your requirement for UTM-Firewall would like to produce before you what all advantages you can have ,,with a watchguard purchase over Fortigate firewall. Also given a brief insight into features of watchguard.
POINTS OF SIGNIFICANCE:
1.)BETTER UTM PERFORMANCE Performance of fortinet severly drops-down once utm features are in effect due its ASIC architecture.
2.)INBUILT LOGGING & REPORTING
Watchguard offers In-built Logging & Reporting features.I.E you can have complete logs & reports regarding network usage at no extra cost.In case of fortinet you would have to go for a seperate device ―FORTI-ANALYZER‖(Around 80,000 extra). 3 ) ” SCALABILITY” Watchguard is the only UTM vendor offering SCALABILITY.I.E suppose in 2 years your network users increased in event of a new lab set-up etc,In case of fortinet the only option would be to replace existing box and buy a new box.But with watchguard you can have upgrade from existing box to any higher model in series by a ―SUBSCRIPTION UPDATE‖.You thus save a box-purchase.
