Wireless LAN (WLAN)
Wi-Fi Security Without Compromises
Enterprises world-wide are cutting the cord and BYOD is here to stay. The economic and productivity advantages of wireless LANs have made Wi-Fi mission critical to many businesses. But as the device landscape shifts from corporate-owned to employee-owned, and network usage centers on the Internet and cloud services, wireless security requirements have evolved to encompass application and content security. Fortinet is uniquely prepared.
Manage Wireless LAN and Security as One
Unlike other vendors which require additional security appliances to fully protect the wireless LAN from cyber-threats, security is at the heart of Fortinet’s WLAN solutions. With integrated support for guest access, virus scanning, intrusion protection and everything in-between, Fortinet eliminates the complexity and risk of managing multiple point security products.
Get Superior Visibility and Control of Applications and Websites
With signatures for thousands of applications FortiGate offers unrivalled control over application priority and bandwidth management, transcending the limitations of broad Wi-Fi priority classes. You can block, throttle or prioritize any application to ensure the best possible experience for users. Built-in web filtering lets you block access to known harmful websites that may contain phishing/pharming attacks or malware, or any other site you specify, enabling you to protect devices, control access to age-appropriate or objectionable content.
Enforce Strong Authentication and Identity-based Policies
Fortinet provides the full range of enterprise authentication types and supports authentication against RADIUS, LDAP and Active Directory as standard. Identity-aware policies let you control users or client devices based on unique business requirements, or compliance needs such as PCI DSS or HIPAA.
