Meanwhile, Fortinet should come out with a solution for this as any trade-up or tech refresh will always call for latest equipment with latest firmware, hence Fortinet should work on a solution for smooth migration for moving of Config, logs etc seamlessly from one box to the other.
The Fortinet Security Fabric brings together the concepts of convergence and consolidation to provide comprehensive cybersecurity protection for all users, devices, and applications and across all network edges.
