Digital innovation has transformed enterprise networks, adding breakthrough capabilities
to achieve business outcomes...
while unintentionally exposing them to new vulnerabilities. With the rapid proliferation of mobile computing, multi-cloud deployment, and shadow IT, attack surfaces have dramatically expanded, adding complexity and making enterprise networks vulnerable to sophisticated attacks.
FortiGate NGFWs enable security-driven networking and consolidate industry-leading security capabilities such as intrusion prevention system (IPS), web filtering, secure sockets layer (SSL) inspection, and automated threat protection. Fortinet NGFWs meet the performance needs of highly scalable, hybrid IT architectures, enabling organizations to reduce complexity and manage security risks.
FortiGate Secure SD-WAN
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.
FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW)
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 the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
per Mbps among all eight vendors.
An intrusion prevention system (IPS) is a critical component of every network’s core security capabilities. It protects against known threats and zero-day attacks including malware and underlying vulnerabilities. Deployed inline as a bump in the wire, many IPS solutions perform deep packet inspection of traffic at wire speed, requiring high throughput and low latency.
Fortinet delivers IPS technology via the industry-validated and recognized FortiGate platform. FortiGate security processors provide unparalleled high performance, while FortiGuard Labs informs industry-leading threat intelligence, creating an IPS with proven success in protecting from known and zero-day threats. As a key component of the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiGate IPS secures the entire end-to-end infrastructure without compromising performance.
Secure Web Gateway (SWG)
As Enterprises continue to rearchitect their WAN Edge with rapid migration of applications to the cloud, the attack surface at the remote sites/branch locations continues to increase. This risk is especially high for web-based traffic, as the web-based threat continues to be one of the primary attack vectors. As attack techniques become more advanced and versatile, organizations need an integrated approach to secure against external and internal risks. Fortinet's secure web gateway provides flexible deployment options to protect against internet-based threats without compromising on end-user experience.
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.
