Securing Federal Networks and Data

Federal agencies need high-performance cyber security solutions to combat threats from hacktivists, for-profit blackhats, and hostile foreign governments. Their needs are unique due to: the sensitive nature of the data they protect and the systems they operate; privacy and security requirements imposed by the Privacy Act, the E-Government Act, and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA); the age of some Federal IT assets; and, budget considerations.

  • Protection from client, to network perimeter, to data center, to cloud
  • Applied threat intelligence solutions validated by objective third-party tests
  • Adherence to Federal standards and certification requirements
  • Aligned with Federal strategy for information security continuous monitoring (ICSM)

Fortinet delivers solutions that use analytics and machine learning to turn threat intelligence collected by FortiGuard Labs into advanced threat protection for Federal systems. All platforms can be centrally managed; can include features such as two-factor authentication, secure email, Wi-Fi security and advanced logging and reporting; can provide throughput rates measured in Gbps or Tbps; and can meet high-availability requirements.
We offer products certified to the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules (FIPS 140-2) and to applicable Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (NIAP CCEVS) protection profiles.
