One of the greatest challenges in Internet security today is how to contain the global scourge that is the botnet. Botnet authors and their criminal organizations are continuously developing innovative ways to recruit new victims into their networks and monetize them.
This paper will answer those questions, as well as what is being done to combat them today.
With such a large-scale project, we had stringent technical requirements and the FortiGate security systems demonstrated the resilience, scalability and capacity needed to cope with the enormity of our project. Fortinet's integrated security platform and per-system licensing also allowed us to take a centralized security and management approach and thus avoid the management and licensing challenges associated with the implementation of servers and separate point solutions.
