From the start, the Fortinet vision has been to deliver broad, truly integrated, high-performance security across the IT infrastructure.
We provide top-rated network and content security, as well as secure access products that share intelligence and work together to form a cooperative fabric. Our unique Security Fabric combines Security Processors, an intuitive operating system, and applied threat intelligence to give you proven security, exceptional performance, and better visibility and control--while providing easier administration. The Fortinet Security Fabric delivers a unified approach that is broad, integrated, and automated. Reduce and manage the attack surface through integrated broad visibility, stop advanced threats through integrated AI-driven breach prevention, and reduce complexity through automated operations and orchestration.
Our flagship enterprise firewall platform, FortiGate, is available in a wide range of sizes and form factors to fit any environment and provides a broad array of next-generation security and networking functions. Complementary products can be deployed with a FortiGate to enable a simplified, end-to-end security infrastructure covering:
Network Security - Protect the entire attack surface from headquarters to branch offices with advanced security.
Multi-Cloud Security - Complete visibility and control across the cloud that enables secure applications and connectivity.
Secure Access - Deliver secure application, device access, and management without compromising performance and speed.
Security Operations - Implement advanced threat intelligence to detect, prevent, and respond sophisticated malware and improve security awareness.
Network Operations - Leverage a smart security strategy that prioritizes automation-driven network operations that spots and prevents network breaches.
Endpoint and Device Protection - Proactive protection, visibility, and control for all endpoints and devices across the network.
Application Security - Protect critical business web applications with an integrated set of products to thwart advanced threats.
Fortinet NSS Labs Recommended for SD-WANFortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) utilize purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence security services from AI-powered FortiGuard labs to deliver top-rated protection, high performance inspection of clear-texted and encrypted traffic. Next-generation firewalls reduce cost and complexity with full visibility into applications, users and networks and provides best of breed security. As an integral part of the Fortinet Security Fabric next-generation firewalls can communicate within Fortinet’s comprehensive security portfolio as well as third-party security solutions in a multivendor environment to share threat intelligence and improve security posture.
As the use of business-critical, cloud-based applications and tools continue to increase, distributed organizations with multiple remote offices are switching from performance-inhibited wide-area networks (WANs) to software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) architectures. SD-WAN offers business application steering, cost savings, and performance for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, as well as unified communication services. However, SD-WAN has its own shortcomings—especially when it comes to security with direct internet access.
Fortinet FortiGate Secure SD-WAN includes best-of-breed next-generation firewall (NGFW) security, SD-WAN, advanced routing, and WAN optimization capabilities, delivering a security-driven networking WAN edge transformation in a unified offering. Fortinet received second consecutive NSS Labs “Recommended” rating in the SD-WAN Group Test. Fortinet Secure SD-WAN delivered lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) per Mbps among all eight vendors.
Whether part of a firewall solution or a separate standalone appliance, Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) technology is becoming an increasingly ubiquitous part of network security defenses. Fortinet, well known for its next-generation firewall (NGFW) solution, has built IPS technology for more than ten years. Fortinet customers expect and depend on high performance from FortiGate firewalls and FortiGate IPS benefits from this legacy, delivering pound-for-pound, the best IPS performance available in the market today. FortiGate IPS, following a different evolution path than traditional IPS, innovates in ways that other standalone IPS products do not.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) adoption is on the rise, with at least 60% of internet sites using it as of January 2018. While this provides confidentiality, it’s also a great place for cybercriminals to hide malware. Industry reports indicate that 41% of malicious traffic leverages encryption. In addition, administrators lose visibility of data leaving the enterprise and can’t enforce data loss policies.
Fortinet firewalls with Gateway Security protects enterprises against web attacks with URL filtering, visibility and control of encrypted web traffic via SSL inspection, and application of granular web application policies. Fortinet is the first and only gateway security vendor to earn Virus Bulletin’s VBWeb certification for web filtering effectiveness.
While attack surfaces are becoming more dynamic due to the rise of IoT and cloud-based services, a continuing shortage of cyber security talent is driving organizations to integrate sandboxing with greater controls and a high degree of automation.
Fortinet management and analytics provides powerful and simplified network orchestration, automation, and response for on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments. Fortinet management and analytics technologies have been tested for more than a decade and is deployed by thousands of customers around the world across all major industry verticals.
As enterprise networks morph and change with digital transformation, once relied upon tools have become outdated and obsolete. Yet, many are still deployed alongside newer technology stacks, creating a complex environment that does not interoperate. Enterprises deploy an average of 75 different vendor solutions that lack shared threat intelligence—a cybersecurity hurdle that is often compounded with a lack of skilled cybersecurity personnel to manage these networks.
Simplified network orchestration, automation, and response helps consolidate complex point products, and is compatible with Fortinet solutions and all Security Fabric-ready partners.
Organizations are increasingly deploying a variety of workloads across multiple clouds. In turn, business-critical data and services are increasingly scattered across this distributed infrastructure. Using the shared responsibility model as a guiding principle, enterprises rely on cloud providers to protect the network, storage, and computing layers, while enterprises own the security for everything that is built, deployed, or stored in the public cloud. Due to multi-cloud adoption, most enterprises maintain heterogeneous environments, with tools from each cloud platform differing significantly.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are ever-evolving and use a variety of technologies. To successfully combat these attacks, you need a dynamic, multi-layered security solution. FortiDDoS protects from both known and zero day attacks with very low latency. It’s easy to deploy and manage, and includes comprehensive reporting and analysis tools.
