Blended Security Threats:
Network security threats are devastating to enterprise networks. Intellectual property, revenue, customer and company records, and other mission-critical resources are at risk. Unfortunately enterprise networks often lack adequate security solutions much less the human resources to recognize the business risks – that is until the damage is already done. Point-products providing security solutions for specific purposes may provide adequate protection against specific single-threaded threats, however a new breed of blended-threats and attacks utilize a multitude of attack vectors. Furthermore assembling an array of point products is costly and requires significant expertise to engineer, maintain and manage. Most small to medium size businesses cannot afford such overhead, yet should tragedy strike the potential business costs are enormous. Fortunately cost-effective, evergreen multi-threat protection is now available to businesses of any size. The FortiGate-200 through -800 series of advanced security systems integrate all-in-one multi-threat protection into cost-effective plug-n-play security platforms that effectively block today’s blended attacks including intrusion attempts, viruses, worms, phishing, spyware, spam and many other types of malware. The Fortinet FortiGuard® global 24x7 threat detection and update service provides the networking industry’s fastest response time to ensure latest security threats are detected and automatic security updates are available before your business is impacted.
Security Platforms That Meet the Challenge:
FortiGate security platforms are based on Fortinet’s revolutionary FortiASIC Content Processor technology, which enables a comprehensive suite of real-time security solutions while delivering the highest levels of network performance. The FortiGate-200-800 series platforms provide a complete security solution including content inspection firewall, IPSEC and SSL VPN, intrusion prevention, Web filtering, antispam, antivirus, antispyware, and IM and P2P controls that prevent blended attacks, as well as providing integrated traffic shaping functions, making them the most cost effective, convenient and powerful network protection solutions available. In addition, Fortinet’s per-device security subscriptions and turnkey appliance design makes them an affordable and easy-to-manage security solution for small-to-medium enterprises.
Fortinet’s Multi-Layered Security Solution:
Fortinet’s multi-layered security solutions efficiently and economically provide an integrated set of security services in a single, easy-to-manage high-performance appliance that is capable of supporting a wide range of deployment scenarios. In addition, FortiGuard Subscription Services include everything from technical support, antivirus updates, antispyware, antispam, and Web content filtering to ensure that your security environment remains current and your corporate resources are protected against the latest blended threats. FortiGate systems come with a one-year limited hardware warranty and 90-day limited software warranty.
Fortinet’s family of mid-range security appliances are designed for mid-size enterprise networks.
Secure Web AccessFirewall + Antivirus + Web Filtering
The primary source of threats to the Enterprise network is undoubtedly from uncontrolled employee access to the Internet and Web-based services. Yet today every business not only relies on the Internet for productivity enhancements and competitive advantage, but literally depends on the Internet for business success. With all the benefits of the Internet, also come potential risks such as viruses and worms that disrupt services or destroy valuable data, and a myriad of security challenges including information theft/ leakage, inappropriate usage and the need to comply with regulatory mandates. The FortiGate-200-800 series of midrange security appliances provide a turn-key suite of ICSA Labs certified multi-layered security applications to stop blended attacks from affecting your business.
Secure Perimeter AccessFirewall + VPN+ Intrusion Prevention + Antivirus
Enterprises often have complex network topologies and, therefore, complex network security requirements. Typical deployments mean linking several sites together—ranging from home offices to larger remote offices—and ensuring that the security implementation is seamless. Security devices for these environments need to provide a wide variety of performance metrics and connectivity options. Fortinet’s line of mid-range security appliances offer integrated 4-port switches, 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports, up to 1 Gbps firewall throughput, and up to 200 Mbps 3DES VPN throughput. These options include the full security suite of ICSA Labs certified multi-layered security applications to stop blended attacks from affecting your enterprise’s productivity.
Secure Messaging AccessAntispam+ Antivirus + IM / P2P Controls
The FortiGate line of security appliances has a flexible architecture that allows each one to quickly adapt to emerging technologies and threats such as IM, P2P, and VOIP applications and identity theft methods such as spyware, phishing, and pharming attacks. Flexible deployment options such as NAT, Route, and Transparent modes allow FortiGate devices to be easily deployed into most network designs. Core networking features, such as High Availability (HA) and support for dynamic routing protocols like RIP, OSPF, and BGP, allow them to be deployed into complex full mesh network environments that require maximum network availability.
