Anatomy of a Botnet
This comprehensive report answers all of your botnet related questions.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows organizations to securely connect multiple physical locations and users together using an untrusted public network, such as the Internet, as the primary transport medium. Moreover, mobile broadband, cable, and DSL providers have made notable increases in market penetration over the past decade, making access to high-bandwidth internet connectivity almost ubiquitous. VPNs provide high levels of security by encrypting data in transit to prevent unauthorized access.
Remote access VPNs, also called client-to-gateway or dialup VPNs, connect a single host with the security gateway. The security gateway may connect tens, hundreds, or even thousands of unique remote clients to the private network. Many remote access VPN gateways use a single remote access technology; however products like the FortiGate system consolidate multiple access technologies into a common platform for simplicity, cost effectiveness, and maximum flexibility.
Fortinet VPN solutions offer customers a broad range of options for establishing VPNs in both major categories by supporting IPsec, SSL-TLS, and L2TP VPN technologies. They allow distributed organizations of all sizes to be connected and secured while detecting and eliminating a wide spectrum of threats and malicious activity.
