Protect your entire network from IoT to the cloud and everywhere in between with the industry-leading security, intelligence, and collaboration of the Fortinet Security Fabric. Fortinet next-generation security product family blends software and hardware to help you inspect and control all traffic that passes through your network — ensuring apps are fast, available, and secure. Fortinet works with other leading technology companies to create solutions that improve manageability, strengthen security, and speed app deployment. The Fortinet Security Fabric enables the security devices across your entire network to work together to cooperatively remove threats by monitoring devices and traffic, intelligently segmenting your network, and sharing global threat intelligence. The role of the network in your business strategy is more important than ever, and ensuring it’s both fast and secure is critical to your success. Having an effective security strategy for your entire network can determine whether you are running a smooth, safe organization or about to become a security breach headline.
To enable an effective defense, the data and security elements across all of your various environments must be well-integrated, able to share intelligence, and visible. The Fortinet Security Fabric gives you control, integration, and easy management of security across your entire organization, from IoT to the cloud. It also closes any gaps that were most likely introduced when disparate security products were added, data centers migrated, and/or networks expanded. The Fortinet Security Fabric allows security to dynamically expand and adapt as more and more workloads and data are added, and at the same time, seamlessly follow and protect data, users, and applications as they move back and forth between IoT, smart devices, and cloud environments throughout the network. The Fortinet Security Fabric is built around three key attributes. The Fortinet Security Fabric covers the entire attack surface. Security can be applied to the network, endpoints, access, applications, and cloud.
Fortinet — DDoS And Ransomware Attack Mitigation
Recent DDoS and ransomware attacks have grabbed the attention of healthcare organizations around the globe. Ransomware isn’t going away any time soon. Every time organizations think they have a handle on this, ransomware developers come up with a new variant designed to evade detection. Nemucod is a malware Trojan tool that is often used to drop a variety of ransomware variants, such as Locky, Teslacrypt, and .CRYPTED. After a couple of weeks of reduced activity (perhaps either the developers or targets were on summer vacation), its activity has spiked, taking two of the top three spots on our malware tracking list. One interesting development is that Fortinet FortiGuard Labs team started detecting and tracking a new Visual Basic Script (VBS) — based Nemucod malware, called VBS / Nemucod. It’s a classic example of how security teams need to be extra vigilant, because criminals are always looking for a way to sneak in that you haven’t considered yet.
Fortinet — High Performance Data Center Firewall
Fortinet FortiGate network security platform provides the backbone of your data center security solution by providing increased segmentation, tenant isolation and confidentiality in today’s consolidated, multi tenant and hybrid data center environments. Internal segmentation firewall (ISFW) — protect your enterprise network from the inside out. With many different ways into an enterprise network today, Advanced Threats once inside take advantage of the flat and open network. The solution is a new model of firewall — internal segmentation firewall (ISFW) — that sits at strategic points of the internal network. Next-gen firewall (NGFW / NGIPS) — better security, more control and 5 times faster performance. Enterprises today are faced with more applications, more devices, more threats, more users and more traffic than ever. Fortinet will help you keep up and stay secure with Fortinet’s innovative, NSS Labs recommended and tested Fortinet FortiGate next-generation firewall (NGFW).
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 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.
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.
