Hi All, I am a huge Meraki fan, and when you have the full stack it’s a thing of beauty. In a recent discussion/healthy debate, we are recommending a Meraki MX device when the opposition is recommending Fortinet for our distributed network. Help me settle this debate. What makes an MX the right choice for security and usability compared to Fortinet? What are Fortinet’s shortcomings? What does Fortinet not do that an MX does?
Hi @carlosmathinson ,
previous debate on here:
It all comes down to the requirements for the deployment. Yes I love Meraki products however if they don' fit the bill for that deployment then so be it. There is no one vendor that has a "total solution".
I used both Fortigate and Meraki.
If you want have more features, LACP, and you rarely move equipment - Fortigate
If you often move equipment - like you have many sites that changes location and you want to have ease of use - definately Meraki
