Security-Driven Networking

Fortinet’s Network Security Solution is an integral component of the Fortinet Security Fabric that enables complete visibility and provides automated threat protection across the entire attack surface. Powered by a single operating system it delivers industry-leading security, unmatched performance, and reduces complexity.

ForitGate Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) : Enterprise Firewalls

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 organisations to reduce complexity and manage security risks.

FortiGate NGFWs are powered by artificial intelligence (AI)-driven FortiGuard Labs and deliver proactive threat protection with high-performance inspection of both clear-text and encrypted traffic (including the industry’s latest encryption standard TLS 1.3) to stay ahead of the rapidly expanding threat landscape.

FortiGate NGFWs inspect traffic as it enters and leaves the network. These inspections happen at an unparalleled speed, scale, and performance and prevent everything from ransomware to DDoS attacks, without degrading user experience or creating costly downtime.

As an integral part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiGate NGFWs can communicate within the comprehensive Fortinet security portfolio as well as third-party security solutions in a multi-vendor environment. To increase the speed of operations and response, they share threat intelligence, and improve security posture and automated workflow.

Secure SD-WAN

SD-WAN solutions transform an organisation’s capabilities by leveraging the corporate WAN as well as multi-cloud connectivity to deliver high-speed application performance at the WAN Edge of branch sites. SD-WAN provides a centralised control mechanism that can determine and route the ideal path for traffic—MPLS, 3G/4G/5G, or broadband—ensuring organisations can quickly and easily access business-critical cloud applications. But SD-WAN solutions don’t provide in-built security which is critical for direct internet access. Secure SD-WAN enables organisations to enable NGFW with SD-WAN in a simplified 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.

Fortinet Secure SD-WAN Solutions provide:

  • World’s only ASIC Accelerated Secure SD-WAN
  • 5,000+ application identification and steering
  • Best User-Experience based on WAN remediation
  • Advance routing capabilities and WAN optimisation
  • Best Security Posture with built-in NGFW
