Take Control of Your Security Infrastructure

The FortiManager family delivers the versatility you need to effectively manage your Fortinet-based security infrastructure. FortiManager drastically reduces management costs, simplifies configuration, and accelerates deployment cycles, whether you are deploying new devices, installing security policies, or distributing updates.

FortiManager also provides crucial timesaving features like device auto-discovery, group management, global policies, auditing facilities, and the ability to manage complex VPN environments. FortiManager, coupled with the FortiAnalyzer™ family of centralized logging and reporting appliances, provides a comprehensive and powerful centralized management solution for your organization.

Fortinet's Versatile Management Solution

Networks are constantly evolving due to threats, organizational growth or new regulatory/business requirements. Traditional management products focus on mitigating company-wide threats through firewall policies, firmware updates and keeping content security current.

FortiManager offers enterprise class features to contain these threats, but also provides flexibility to evolve along with your ever-changing network.

In addition to being able to manage hundreds or even thousands of FortiGate devices, FortiManager now includes basic FortiAnalyzer logging and reporting functions for administrators who prefer a consolidated management platform.

Key tenets of Fortinet's management versatility:

  • Diversity of form factors
  • Architectural flexibility
  • Highly customizable
  • Simple licensing
Key Features & Benefits
