Feature Highlights: Technical Support

Organizations depend on Fortinet solutions to provide critical services. If any issues arise, they need to be addressed quickly to help ensure security and business continuity. Flexible support options help organizations maximize uptime, security, and performance according to the individual needs of each business.

Fortinet offers three different per-device support options to meet the needs of different devices, i.e., FortiCare Essential, FortiCare Premium, and FortiCare Elite. Organizations have the flexibility to buy different levels of service for different devices based on their needs.

FortiCare Essential

FortiCare Essential is the base-level service, and it is targeted toward devices that require a limited amount of support and can tolerate next-business-day, web-only response for critical as well as non-critical issues. This service is only offered to FortiGate models 8x and below and to low-end FortiWifi devices.

FortiCare Premium

FortiCare Premium is targeted toward devices that require 24x7x365 with one-hour response for critical issues and the next business-day response for non-critical issues.

FortiCare Elite

FortiCare Elite offers enhanced servicelevel agreements (SLAs) and accelerated issue resolution. It is targeted toward devices that require prompt attention. This offer also provides Extended Endof-Engineering Support (E-EoES) for Long-Term Supported Firmware (LTS) of 18 months for added flexibility.
