sonicwall av and ips engine has not been proven by 3rd party analysis to detect the most and current viruses and attacks.
where as fortinet antivirus and antispyware engine is always validate industry authorizes 3rd party like ICSA and VB100.not only that fortinet's UTM and IPS approach has been validate by NSS labs.

there are some other differences also...if you require i can provide.

Think for information. I have requiest for both. The price is very different! Fortigate is most expensive.

My organisation is a non-profit organisation and my budget is limited. I need a  firewall with a good protection, and VPN for windows, Mac lion, iPad and iPhone. I do static nat for my server. I want to have ability to autorize or not some web site. I dont have email server locally.

Hi;
We are using sonicwall at my university. Model is Sonicwall NSA E7500. It's the best price and work I have ever seen. Gateway antivirus, IPS, L7 firewall, Content filter, Client antivirus, vpn... Very cheap and usefull.
