Fortinet Announces HP AllianceOne Program Membership with HP Networking Specialization
As an example, containment of contaminated devices is a huge issue for customers, particularly when the compromise is characterized by Fortinet’s High performance Next Generation Firewall, as an Advanced Threat that could lead to a data breach. FortiGate appliances derive intelligence from FortiGuard threat intelligence research services, and FortiSandbox analytics, resulting in a coordinated hyper performance system for defeating advanced threats. In HP SDN environments, FortiGate appliances or virtual machines (VMs) could proactively instruct the HP VAN controller to contain such infected endpoints at the closest switch in an automated programmable way. This would significantly reduce the risk of threat proliferation and data theft, without any incremental investment required for containment technologies.

FortiGuard Researchers Detect and Prevent New Sophisticated Point-of-Sale Threat
On November 3rd, FortiGuard researchers reported an updated version of “Backoff”, dubbed ROM, which performed many of the same functions as its predecessor, but leveraged a slew of new techniques that made the threat more difficult to detect and analyze. This version circumvented security controls by disguising itself as a media player with the file name mplayer.exe and dropping a file in the user’s Application Data folder.
