Hello @antoniocerasuolo ,

 

If you want to use UTM features (Like IPS, AV, Web Filter, APP Control), you need to buy a license for these features. 

 

You can review the UTM packages below the link. (3rd page)

If you want to buy a UTM package. You need to contact with local Fortinet Partner. You can find reseller contact information in this link.

Hi,

ok but do you have a device that doesn't need any license? those partners are major corporations so i can imagine very expensive.. i need something  for free or very very cheap.

 

can you suggest a device?

Hello @antoniocerasuolo ,

 

If you ask this question about the Fortinet device. There are no options for using the UTM feature without a license.

 

If you want to just use the basic firewall feature, you can use your FortiGate 40F without a license. Such as VPN, Firewall Policy, Routing, etc.

 

If you are looking for a free thing. You can search open source firewall solutions.

ok thanks!! clear..

 

but from my research on those open source firewall solutions from my understanding don't even have decent IPS or threat management..for me no issue to pay once to buy the box.. but then every year pay is not so cool.

 

thanks for the help anyway
