Hello and thank you for your time.

We are currently using a FortiGate 50B at our high school.

The last IT provider got us to switch from a SonicWALL PRO 2040.

We were told that the FortiGate is better than the SonicWALL and we should switch.
I have a feeling that the IT provider got us switched b/c they were not a SonicWALL shop and lacked the competancy in SonicWALL hardware.

I would like to switch back to the sonicwall as it's a entry level enterprise device and the fortigate seems to be geered towards small business.
I want to make sure that I'm making the right decision by swiching back the SonicWALL.

What are some of the advantages or disadvantages going with one vs the other.
Please don't worry about being too technicall.

Thank you in advance.
