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).

Benefits

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.

Features

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.
