Top 5 Ways Fortinet Excels
Posted on Jul 2nd, 2015
Cybersecurity incidents are on the rise and organizations are looking for ways to keep their assets safe while maintaining normal operations. Whether a nation state attack, Denial of Service attack or a malware intrusion, no organization can afford the disruption that a major breach will cause. Cybercriminals are increasing the sophistication of their attack methods and are creating elaborate tools and methods to infiltrate, attack, and extract data and sabotage targeted systems.
Because these threats to the IT security continue to evolve, Federal agencies have turned to Fortinet to deploy the most powerful security solutions available to combat malicious attacks.
Fortinet researches and develops high-performing network security appliances, platforms and services. The company is a leader in providing network and data security solutions to an impressive list of corporations and government agencies, including the U.S. Departments of Defense, Treasury, Justice, Labor, and Homeland Security.
How Fortinet Protects Networks from Cyber Intrusions
Fortinet security solutions excel in the following five key areas:
FortiGate platform advantage: Consisting of virtual and physical appliances, FortiGate is Fortinet's flagship security platform. The platform's unique scalability and customization allow it to provide a wide range of functionality. The platform can meet the needs of small businesses all the way up to large data centers and enterprises. FortiGate provides an array of security functions, including intrusion prevention, firewall, VPN, anti-malware, Web filtering, WLAN control and WAN acceleration.
Custom-designed application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs): Fortinet has designed its FortiASIC™ processors to boost performance and accelerate security and networking functions. FortiASIC meets the challenge of increased bandwidth demands. It also ensures your security solution never becomes a cumbersome bottleneck in your network.
Advanced operating system configurations: Combined with FortiASIC™ processors and the latest-generation CPUs, the FortiOS™ Operating System protects against security breaches and provides flexible configuration options. This flexibility ensures there is a FortiGate virtual or physical appliance to fit any network security situation. This includes high performance firewalls for data centers, next generation firewalls for enterprises and Unified Threat Management (UTM) devices for small business or distributed enterprise sites.
Development of Internal Network Firewalls (INFW): Fortinet is pioneering this cutting-edge advancement in network security. INFWs address the challenges created by cyber criminals who launch customized attacks that thwart traditional perimeter defenses. INFW technology sits inside your internal network, guarding multiple, strategic assets against threats that breach your perimeter security. F example, an INFW might sit in front of a server containing sensitive data. Another INFW might guard a set of user devices. A virtual INFW could safeguard web applications in the cloud.
Leader in ease of deployment: Fortinet's award-winning security solutions deploy rapidly with minimum disruption even in large and widespread installed bases. FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer and FortiCloud are the company's easy-to-use management platforms for hardware, virtual machine and cloud installations. They provide convenient centralized security management, configuration, logging, reporting and analysis for Fortinet devices. Additionally, all of Fortinet's data security and network products comply with Federal standards and certifications.
