Fortinet Compliance And Governance Services

Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) are three facets that help assuring that an organization meets its objectives. When you need support for compliance efforts, Fortinet experts can help define, manage and validate your PCI DSS, and other compliance goals. Compliance and Fortinet Governance Security Services is a separate offering that can be purchased as a standalone service or in conjunction with Fortinet Managed Security Services. It offers configuration hardening and file integrity management, along with patch, user and configuration monitoring to help you confidently manage your compliance requirements. The most significant regulation in this context is the Sarbanes-Oxley Act developed by two U.S. congressmen, Senator Paul Sarbanes and Representative Michael Oxley in 2002 which defined significantly tighter personal responsibility of corporate top management for the accuracy of reported financial statements; and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

Fortinet Managed Security Services helps ensure that you continue addressing your information security compliance requirements as your unique cloud journey unfolds. Governance is the combination of processes established and executed by the directors (or the board of directors) that are reflected in the organization’s structure and how it is managed and led toward achieving goals. Risk management is predicting and managing risks that could hinder the organization to achieve its objectives. GRC is a discipline that aims to synchronize information and activity across governance, risk management and compliance in order to operate more efficiently, enable effective information sharing, more effectively report activities and avoid overlaps. GRC typically encompasses activities such as corporate governance, enterprise risk management and compliance with laws and regulations. These laws can have criminal penalties or are regulations. The definition of what constitutes an effective compliance plan has been elusive.

Application Security

Web applications and email systems have long been favorite targets of hackers because they have access to valuable information and they are relatively easy to exploit. A successful attack can result in a variety of devastating consequences including financial loss, damage to brand reputation, and loss of customer trust. Most organizations do not recover from a major security breach, making it absolutely critical to protect your users and customers from threats that target applications and email systems.

Fortinet Data Center Application Security solution consists of a robust and integrated set of products to protect against these attacks. We are the only company that delivers a complete single-vendor solution with the proven performance and security effectiveness to meet the increasing demands of today’s data centers. In addition, our application security solutions can be integrated with Fortinet FortiGate next-generation firewalls and Fortinet FortiSandbox sandbox for extra defenses against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).


The enterprise data center is evolving rapidly with technologies such as virtualization, software-defined networking, and public cloud computing. Trying to apply traditional security to new technologies generally will not be effective. Enterprises need to evaluate their data center initiatives and how they will impact network security to ensure all areas of the data center remain protected. Today’s data centers are dynamic and complex. Security solutions need to be flexible, effective, and easy to manage so they bring order to the chaos instead of adding to it. Fortinet can protect your physical, virtual, and cloud servers with one solution — whether data center, private cloud, or public cloud deployments.

Under constant attack, organizations cannot afford to choose between security and maintaining a high-performance business infrastructure. Your extended enterprise needs proven security that won't compromise performance: from deep within internal segments, to physical and virtual data centers, to dynamic cloud environments. Deploying network security solutions from multiple vendors causes unnecessary complexity and introduces security gaps. The Fortinet Enterprise Firewall Solution delivers industry-leading security effectiveness with unmatched performance capabilities — through one operating system managed within a single pane of glass.

Cloud Security

Cloud computing is becoming increasingly popular among enterprises looking to take advantage of the quick deployment, unprecedented scalability, and cost savings. Private cloud infrastructure, including virtualization and software-defined networking (SDN), are rapidly transforming data centers worldwide. At the same time, organizations are rapidly embracing public clouds, both migrating workloads to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds like AWS and Azure, and adopting Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications. This results in a hybrid cloud and increasingly multi-cloud environment that is truly borderless for your enterprise users, data, and applications.

Evolving your infrastructure means your security must evolve as well, to protect your enterprise regardless of where your infrastructure and applications are running. If your security can’t keep up with the agile public, private, and hybrid cloud environments of today, gaps in protection will occur. There are a number of deployment methods being used today that require scalable security capable of keeping up with elastic workloads. Fortinet provides comprehensive security for private, public, and hybrid deployments before, during, and after migration — with one solution.


At the heart of Fortinet data center security are the FortiGate data center firewalls which are purpose-built FortiASIC processors that enable this extremely high level of performance. These custom content and network processors provide near-wire speed switching, routing, and stateful firewalling. The network processors eliminate the need for legacy Layer-2 switches and routers within the data center. Instead, FortiGate takes over and performs network segmentation, switching, routing, and network security, all while reducing network complexity.

Furthermore, our integrated architecture provides extremely high throughput and exceptionally low latency, minimizing packet processing while accurately scanning the data for threats. Custom FortiASIC processors deliver content inspection at multi-gigabit speeds. The only way for a network security platform to scale is via purpose-built ASICs to accelerate specific parts of the packet processing and content scanning function. FortiGate technology utilizes Optimum Path Processing (OPP) to optimize the different resources available in packet flow. The FortiASIC can scale to 500 Gbps of firewall throughput independent of packet size while maintaining a high number of sessions and extremely low latency.

Fortinet FortiWeb

FortiWeb provides integration with leading third-party vulnerability scanners including Acunetix, HP WebInspect, IBM AppScan, Qualys and WhiteHat to provide dynamic virtual patches to security issues in application environments. Vulnerabilities found by the scanner are quickly and automatically turned into security rules by FortiWeb to protect the application until developers can address them in the application code. Quarantined IPs HTTP Traffic service protects you from known attack sources like botnets, spammers, anonymous proxies, and sources known to be infected with malicious software.

FortiWeb Security Service is designed just for FortiWeb including items such as application layer signatures, malicious robots, suspicious URL patterns and web vulnerability scanner updates. Finally, FortiWeb offers FortiGuard’s top-rated antivirus engine that scans all file uploads for threats that can infect your servers or other network elements. FortiWeb provides maximum flexibility in supporting your virtual and hybrid environments. The virtual versions of FortiWeb support all the same features as Fortinet hardware-based devices and work with all the top hypervisors.
