Next Gen Firewall

FortiGate: Next-Generation Firewall Overview (Fortinet Product Matrix Download)

High threat protection performance with automated visibility to stop attacks

Available in: Appliance / Virtual Machine / Cloud

As security architects consider how to provide comprehensive threat protection for their enterprises, including intrusion prevention, web filtering, anti-malware and application control, they face a major complexity hurdle managing these point products with no integration and lack of visibility. Gartner estimates that by 2019 80% of enterprise traffic will be encrypted and 50% of attacks targeting enterprise will be hidden in encrypted traffic.

FortiGate Next Generation Firewall utilizes purpose-built security processors and threat intelligence security services from FortiGuard labs to deliver top-rated protection and high performance including encrypted traffic. FortiGate reduces complexity with automated visibility into applications, users and network and provides security ratings to adopt security best practices.

Packaged in powerful FortiGate platforms (hardware, virtual, cloud) with advanced analytics and workflows through FortiAnalyzer, FortiGate IPS is a cost-effective network security solution to feed incident response needs in your SOC.

Crypto VPNs

VPN: Scalable, High-Performance, Diverse Crypto VPNs

Protect high-speed data in motion from breaches in a multi-cloud environment

Scalable High-Speed Diverse Crypto VPNs Overview

As companies look to transform everything from their business operating models to service delivery methods, they are adopting technologies such as mobile computing and cloud to make data and applications available wherever they are needed resulting in an increased digital surface and exposure to data in transit breaches.

Maintaining uniform security policy for all corporate users, applications, devices irrespective of their location and appropriate access control is essential to providing security in a multi-cloud environment. The data in motion must be protected using mutual authentication and confidentiality to protect sensitive corporate data over unprotected networks and provides a defensible proof of security.

Secure Web GW

Secure Web Gateway (SWG)

Enterprise-class protection against internet-borne threats

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.

FortiGate SWG employs multiple FortiGuard services to protect users against the latest web threats and to enforce compliance.  One of the key services is FortiGuard Web Filtering, which is the only web filtering service in the industry that is VBWeb certified for security effectiveness by Virus Bulletin.

Management & Report

Management & Reporting

Operationalized Visibility, Quantifiable Security and Cross-silo Automation   

Security teams globally are challenged by resource constraints, both in terms of the number of staff and raw security talent. Moreover, security teams are asked to do more, often in more complex networks and with growing numbers of alerts from multiple systems. Successful security teams allay these challenges by implementing three best practices. First, they simplify the way view management, combining operation NOC-style views with security-based SOC context. Second, they regularly measure and score their security effectiveness, enabling them anytime to answer how secure they are. Third, they demand deep integration so they can automate repetitive actions, especially across silos when possible.

FortiGate Management & Reporting Product Details

Fortinet has purpose-built NOC-SOC into central security management products. This NOC-SOC approach simplifies security management and reporting both during initial deployment as well as with ongoing adjustments to keep Fortinet’s Security Fabric tuned to the optimal security posture. Three products – FortiAnalyzer, FortiManager and FortiCloud – are part of NOC-SOC-based central security management and reporting.
