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.
As a provider of comprehensive IT solutions for global enterprise customers, HP Network Services certainly sees the need for unified security and application acceleration solutions to improve network security, performance and total cost of ownership. We've already had a successful partnership with Riverbed and Fortinet in delivering these services to customers in EMEA and look forward to expanding our relationship to other parts of the world.
