What are FortiCare and FortiGuard support contracts, and how do I choose one of these?
Good question. When you purchase a Fortinet firewall, you have several options to go along with the firewall itself. Basically, these support contracts ensure that your firewall performs at its highest level for as long as possible. The options on the right combine FortiCare and FortiGuard. Without these support options in place, a firewall would basically be an expensive doorstop.
What are they, then?
Basically, FortiCare gives you global tech support on a per-product basis. You’ll receive a timely response to any technical issues as well as complete visibility on ticket resolution progress. It includes firmware upgrades, access to the support portal and associated technical resources. Further, you get reporting on technical incidents (via the web, chat, and telephone), and a hardware return option.
FortiGuard is the constantly self-updating security part of your firewall. That is to say, it’s what makes it a firewall. Each option includes a range of security services designed to tackle the most advanced Internet threats at any time. This includes AntiVirus, Advanced Malware Protection, and Content Filtering. In addition, there’s Sandboxing, AntiSpam, Email Security, Botnet Protection, and more.
