Connect and Secure All Aspects of Your Distributed Enterprise

Securing the separate physical locations of your Distributed Enterprise is challenging due to the wide range of business functions that you need to protect. Remote employees, distributed locations, and corporate data centers have distinct security and access requirements that transcend any single security product. Defending your distributed enterprise requires an ecosystem of security products that integrate and operate together to secure and connect your distributed enterprise.

Distributed Locations

Distributed Locations such as those found in retail, quick-service restaurants and healthcare, require security and connectivity for a wide variety of IT functions, including Wireless LAN, Switching and WAN access. This diverse range of requirements need more advanced security controls including Antimalware, Application Control, IPS, and Secure WLAN. Fortinet's Connect and Secure protects against the latest security threats with a range of high performance, multi-function network security appliance and connectivity devices; including FortiGate Physical and Virtual Appliances, FortiSwitch Secure Access switches, FortiAP Wireless Access Points and FortiExtender 3G/4G Wireless WAN Extenders. Fortinet provides all the components you need to ensure your distributed location will operate securely, while still offering a rich user experience.

Aggregation of Distributed Locations

Distributed locations are typically aggregated back to regional or headquarters location via a range of WAN and VPN connections. Core security functions such as Firewall, Application Control and VPN termination take place at this level. Fortinet’s Network Security Platform appliances have the power and intelligence required to protect this demanding environment.

Access & Connectivity

As your enterprise extends access to employees and guests using tablets and other mobile devices, ensuring secure access is critical. Fortinet can ensure Secure Wireless, remote, and guest Access Control through rogue AP detection, Authentication, Secure Guest WiFi, Web Filtering, Rate Limiting and Load Balancing. Furthermore, providing secure network connectivity to kiosk systems, digital signage and other connected devices is simple with the broad range of Fortinet FortiGate appliances.


Given the widely distributed nature, the ability to quickly configure, modify and manage security and connectivity appliances from a single console is essential.

Solution Guides & White Papers



Fortinet allowed us to purchase a unified threat management solution rather than multiple solutions. This gave us the freedom to consolidate up to six security functions on an as-need basis. In turn, it will save us a great deal of money working with one instead of multiple vendors.
