Centralized Security Management - FortiManager

FortiManager Security Management appliances allow you to centrally manage any number of Fortinet Network Security devices, from several to thousands, including FortiGate®, FortiWiFi™, and FortiCarrier™. Network administrators can better control their network by logically grouping devices into administrative domains (ADOMs), efficiently applying policies and distributing content security/firmware updates.

As mobile services get more sophisticated with the offer of a wide array of multimedia content such as movies and games, our networks get more exposed to viruses and other harmful attacks. Fortinet's carrier-class security platforms provide us with the high performance and scalability we need in terms of quantity of messages we can filter. Also, Fortinet's model of a per-system licensing was very attractive and allowed us to realize a ROI in only five months compared to the cost of our previous solution, which was based on a per-seat license.
