Fortinet’s New Frame­work Seg­ments Devices and Ac­cess Lay­ers Across Wired and Wire­less Net­works to En­hance Se­cu­rity

HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB - REPORT -

Fortinet’s newly an­nounced Se­cure Ac­cess Ar­chi­tec­ture ex­pands the cy­ber­se­cu­rity so­lu­tion provider’s In­ter­nal Seg­men­ta­tion cy­ber­se­cu­rity strat­egy by pro­vid­ing a broad plat­form of in­te­grated, high-per­for­mance cy­ber­se­cu­rity so­lu­tions that span from the client to the cloud, and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

It is de­signed to de­liver in­te­grated pro­tec­tion against data breaches and cy­ber­se­cu­rity threats at the ac­cess layer, while uni­fy­ing net­work op­er­a­tions and ad­min­is­tra­tion by seg­ment­ing devices and the ac­cess lay­ers across wired and wire­less net­works.

“As the prob­a­ble first line of de­fense for an or­ga­ni­za­tion’s in­fra­struc­ture, the ac­cess layer hasn’t re­ceived the amount of at­ten­tion it de­serves in re­gards to cy­ber­se­cu­rity. Lever­ag­ing our ex­ten­sive port­fo­lio of cut­ting-edge so­lu­tions and ex­cep­tional en­gi­neer­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, Fortinet is uniquely po­si­tioned to change that,” said Michael Xie, Founder, Pres­i­dent and Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer at Fortinet.

He cited the re­search firm, Gart­ner, which pre­dicted that there will be 33 bil­lion con­nected end­points by the year 2020, with a ma­jor­ity com­pris­ing new ‘head­less’ de­vice types driven by the In­ter­net of Things (IoT). To an or­ga­ni­za­tion, each de­vice – if left unchecked – could be a po­ten­tial en­try­way and threat to the net­work. “We’ve made ac­cess in­fra­struc­ture se­cu­rity a pri­or­ity and have ar­chi­tected a so­lu­tion that in­te­grates scal­able, flex­i­ble, high-per­for­mance ac­cess net­works with state-of-the-art cy­ber­se­cu­rity tech­nolo­gies. Lever­ag­ing Fortinet’s Se­cure Ac­cess Ar­chi­tec­ture, our cus­tomers can en­joy the very best ac­cess layer se­cu­rity in the mar­ket,” said Ken Xie, Founder, Chair­man of the Board and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer at Fortinet.

A key com­po­nent of their strat­egy is to se­curely iso­late the ac­cess lay­ers from mis­sion-crit­i­cal in­fra­struc­ture and high-value data. This is done us­ing Fortinet’s In­ter­nal Seg­men­ta­tion, which is a new gen­er­a­tion of fire­walls that can keep up with the multi-gi­ga­bit speeds of in­ter­nal net­works.
