Cyber Monday hint: Freemium offerings

Fortinet has many freemium offerings, including FortiGate, FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and more.
Of course they have no covering of either FortiGuard subscription or tech. support, but a lot is still included:

FortiManager VM

3 devices / VDOMs
2 ADOMs

Release Notes


So even if you just maintain a FortiGate cluster and a remote FortiGate, there's no reason to manage them locally because a FortiManager VM + FortiAnalyzer VM is freely available to manage them centrally!

I'm not able to find the download pages for FortiManager or FortiAnalyzer. Could you please share the links? Thanks!

Great post Danny , just remember also the Fortigate has 1 CPU and 2GB memory , but works great for a small lab.

Also we have created some fast trials like the https://www.fortinet.com/offers/fortimonitor-free-trial FortiMonitor and on the Forticloud account you can manage to get also the FortiRecon for 30 days and other solutions.
