The Fortinet Security Fabric
The Fortinet Security Fabric brings together the concepts of convergence and consolidation to provide comprehensive cybersecurity protection for all users, devices, and applications and across all network edges.
Cybersecurity Mesh Architecture (CSMA) is an architectural approach that promotes interoperability between distinct security products to achieve a more consolidated security posture. The Fortinet Security Fabric reduces operational complexity while ensuring compliance, emphasizes interoperability as well as analytics, intelligence, centralized management, and automation, and integrates with a broad ecosystem of technologies and vendors.
The Fortinet Security Fabric
Real-Time Protection. Simplified
To break the attack sequence and protect your organization, you need to be able to rapidly adjust your security posture to defend against newly discovered attacks across your ever-expanding attack surface. FortiGuard Security is a suite of AI-enabled security capabilities, powered by FortiGuard Labs, that continuously assess the risks and proactively adjust the Fabric to counter known and unknown threats in real-time.
User & Device Protection
Users and devices are the endpoints of the organization and need both protection from attacks and safe access to resources. User and Device Security provides both signature-based and behavior-based endpoint protections with the ability to remediate the effects of an attack. For safe access, our solutions provide zero-trust controls for identifying users, authenticating them, and then granting them access to networks and applications. This includes user-associated devices such as laptops and mobile phones as well as non-user-associated devices such as IP cameras, printers, and badge readers.
Secure Digital Acceleration Across All Edges
Digital acceleration (DX) requires investment in modern networking technologies that improve operational excellence, but DX also expands the attack surface. New network edges including LAN, WAN, 5G, and cloud all need to be secured. Fortinet’s Secure Networking protects all edges by tightly integrating network infrastructure with advanced security.
Securing Any Application Journey
The most effective security requires cross-cloud visibility. Fortinet Cloud Security Solutions allow you the necessary visibility and control across cloud infrastructures, enabling secure applications and connectivity in your data center and across your cloud resources while maximizing the benefits of cloud computing.
Simplify Network Operations
Centralized security management is key to seeing your full network security picture. The Fabric Management Center - NOC helps overburdened network operations by simplifying network operations with automation, reducing human error and misconfiguration.
Detect, Protect, and Respond
To keep up with the volume, sophistication, and speed of today’s cyber threats, you need AI-driven security operations that can function at machine speed. The Fabric Management Center - SOC enables advanced threat detection, response capabilities, centralized security monitoring, and optimization to easily be added across the entire Fortinet Security Fabric.
Visibility and protection in complex environments
We build flexibility into our Security Fabric. Having an open ecosystem allows the Fortinet Security Fabric to be extended via seamless integration with a variety of Fabric-Ready Partner solutions. Enabling a broad ecosystem minimizes gaps in security architectures while maximizing return on investment (ROI). And this can all be administered with a single management console.
