Threats can enter your network from common applications like email and web browsers as well as the latest social networking tools. Today’s threats require complete content protection, which is more than simply identifying applications and allowing or denying the traffic. It is application control coupled with identity-based policy enforcement of all content.
Our high-performance unified threat management solutions provide the visibility you need to detect hidden threats within legitimate content, even from trusted sources and authorized applications. This unmatched protection means you can allow new applications into your network, but automatically block any malicious content or behavior.
Custom FortiASIC™ processors deliver the power you need to detect malicious content at multi-Gigabit speeds. Other security technologies cannot protect against today’s wide range of content- and connection-based threats because they rely on general-purpose CPUs, causing a dangerous performance gap. FortiASIC processors provide the performance needed to block emerging threats, meet rigorous third-party certifications, and ensure that your network security solution does not become a network bottleneck.
With our entire business being done online, it is paramount for us to protect our employees and data from external and internal threats while, at the same time, making sure that our network throughput is not impacted. We chose Fortinet's chassis-based security systems because they proved to offer superior performance and security functions, IPS in particular.
