An Intelligent, Collaborative Approach to Solve Today's Security Challenges

For your enterprise to be successful, your network must be secure. But we can no longer focus on securing simple connections or application content. It’s impossible to secure today’s dynamic IT ecosystem with solutions created decades ago. Similarly, we no longer live in a world where data is contained within the network; it’s now virtually everywhere.

We’ve officially entered a new era of networking. One where the network “edge” is no longer clearly defined and the attack surface is expanding at an accelerated pace. Networks now include on-demand infrastructure, cloud-based services, software-defined perimeters and smart devices. This new landscape unlocks massive potential, yet introduces equally massive security threats like Ransomware, DDoS, and zero-day attacks. Meanwhile, enterprises today seem to face one of two options: either compromise security features to enhance performance or convolute the network with disparate vendor solutions.

This new world of networking requires a new approach to security. One that simply yet intelligently secures the entire infrastructure. One that delivers full visibility into every viable network segment and the devices and endpoints behind them. One that can seamlessly integrate with third-party solutions, enabling users to ubiquitously collect, share and correlate threat intelligence.

In a nutshell: enterprises need a simple, architectural approach that allows for network security without compromise. This is a critical security strategy we’ve been missing…until now.

Security Fabric

The Fortinet Security Fabric builds upon over 20 years of industry-defining innovation. The technology represents the first-ever architectural security approach designed to dynamically adapt to today’s evolving IT infrastructure. This multi-layered approach segments the entire network, from Internet of Things (IoT) to the cloud, to provide broad, powerful, and automated protection against sophisticated threats:

  • Broad: Endpoints, access, applications, cloud, IoT…you name it, our Security Fabric is inherently designed to secure it. Perhaps best of all is that visibility can be seamlessly extended to virtually any third-party security product. Our industry-leading Fabric-Ready program allows external solutions to connect into our fabric and share information, increasing network coverage and allowing enterprises to maximize their existing investments. 
  • Powerful: Powerful network security means seeing the big picture and the close up. Fortinet Security Fabric enables high-level topology views all the way down to granular endpoint details (even users’ social IDs). Admins can sort through network segments according to vulnerabilities, enabling them to rapidly identify and mitigate pain points that could lead to serious damage. Tags can also be assigned to endpoints and devices (for example, “critical” or “engineering”) to streamline searches for specific network assets. All the while, our Security Fabric Risk Widget allows enterprises to view their security score and compliance percentage—calculated by running a series of tests across the network fabric—to continuously sharpen their security strategy. 
  • Automated: Enterprises can centrally manage and orchestrate policies, as well as automatically synchronize resources to enforce policies. Most importantly, they can coordinate automated responses to threats detected anywhere across the extended network. This is integral for discovering the behavior of users, devices, and applications to help shorten the detection and response cycle. Following this, they can coordinate the resources of security tools deployed across the infrastructure to counter malicious intent.
