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.
We think highly of the FortiGate appliances ability to provide various security functions within one appliance, rather than forcing us to implement specific security software one by one. In addition, we liked its clear fee structure for initial licensing based on an annual per store cost. The deployment of FortiGate appliances enabled us to share a huge amount of data in a secure manner. We plan to drive further development, including a management system to understand all aspects of our outlets, such as photo shooting status, the delivery of commercial messages to our customers to highlight our outlets and the delivery of streaming images to our employees as part of training. Furthermore, we will consider developing a dedicated store system tailored for digital photography, rather than use a common POS system for retail outlets modified for photo studios.
