FortiGate NGIPS Receives Third Consecutive Recommended Rating from NSS Labs
According to the latest Fortinet Threat Landscape Report published in Q2 2019, we continue to see increases in threats, particularly malware and exploits. In fact, towards end of July, the Fortinet Threat Landscape Index (TLI) was at its highest level over a 12-month period, coming in at a TLI score of 1037. (The TLI is a composite score based on a weekly analysis of randomly selected organizations that started with a baseline number of 1,000 so changes in the threat landscape can be easily compared.) This documented increase in threats highlights the importance of deploying a leading and proven intrusion prevention (IPS) solution to protect against attacks and prevent successful infiltration.

SD-WAN vs. MPLS: Why SD-WAN is a Better Choice in 2019
Another issue influencing that rise in interest is flexibility. MPLS connections tend to be rigid, fixed connections that can’t easily adapt to the sort of interconnectivity between branch offices that today’s dynamic networks require. They also don’t provide support for things like application recognition or sophisticated bandwidth management for latency-sensitive applications.
Simplifying Back to School Security with SD-WAN and SD-Branch
However, Back-to-School falls on the heels of an even more extensive summer of preparations by school teachers, administrators, and IT staff. School districts have spent the spring and summer investing in and deploying interactive whiteboards, instructional software, and other in-classroom technologies. Likewise, many teachers have spent the summer training to launch new digital learning initiatives—allowing them to individualize instruction, expand learning beyond the confines of the traditional classroom, and maximize student engagement using such things as digital classrooms and resources, online testing and assessments, and student collaboration tools.

Fortinet Announces the FortiDDoS E-Series with Two New Models - FortiDDoS 1500E and 2000E
A growing number of service providers and data centers now face continuous DDoS attacks rather than the occasional attacks of the past. At the same time, the growing volume of applications and services are also forcing data centers to migrate from 10 Gbps to 100 Gbps. As a result, DDoS attack mitigation equipment deployed in the data center is expected to perform at levels approaching 100G speeds to avoid becoming a bottleneck. And at the same time, higher link speeds are needed for increased DDoS mitigation capacity.
Ensuring Cybersecurity at Big Events This Summer
Summertime living might be easy, but if relaxation brings a lack of vigilance, it can have devastating consequences for potential cybercrime victims. And the warmer months do come with some unique security risks, especially for IT teams working at stadiums and major event venues.
