Today’s Federal Agencies are faced with a growing number of Netowrk Security Threats from hacktivists, for-profit blackhats and hostile foreign governments. The malicious tools available to these attackers are simultaneously increasing in sophistication, with new Zero-day, Denial of Service and Botnet attacks rounding out their collective arsenals. Federal customers are looking for security solutions that can prevent these Advanced Attacks, accurately and at high speeds. At the same time, these solutions need to be certified and tested by independent third parties for proper validation.
Headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, Fortinet offers a wide range of products for federal customers designed to thwart attacks at every possible security juncture. FortiGate provides Next-Generation and Data Center Firewalling, FortiSandbox mitigates Zero-day attacks and FortiDDoS prevents DDoS outages. From an enterprise perspective, FortiManager ensures security policy consistency amongst Fortinet devices and FortiAnalyzer provides security visibility with enhanced analytics capabilities. All Fortinet products leverage industry-leading threat and application intelligence from FortiGuard Labs who provide content security updates from clustered, localized servers.
Recognized as a consistent leader by Gartner, Fortinet is also very active within the security testing community – consistently scoring high marks with NSS Labs, VB 100 and AV Comparatives. In addition, Fortinet has attained ICSA, FIPS and Common Criteria certifications and products are available for procurement through the GSA Schedule.
