FortiGuard® Vulnerability Management Service

The FortiGuard Vulnerability Management (VM) Service enables organizations to minimize the risk of vulnerabilities by quickly discovering vulnerabilities, measuring the potential risk, and then providing the information necessary to mitigate those risks. Additionally, a compliance reporting function provides organizations with actionable reports that can identify areas for remediation. These policies are continuously updated to ensure OS regulatory compliance requirements are met and releases are delivered via the FortiGuard global distribution network.

FortiGuard® Vulnerablity Management Service Benefits

  • Device-based licensing eliminates per-user fees to significantly lower entry cost and ongoing maintenance costs.
  • Hundreds of compliance policies are ready to use "out of the box" with regular FortiGuard updates.

  • Reduced errors, repeatable processes, and predictable results are delivered with extensive libraries of templates that enable IT staff to leverage industry standard best practices that produce measurable results.

Testimonials


As an incubator, we have a shared services environment but that doesn't mean that we want everything, such as intellectual property, between our customers shared. It was therefore critical that we have a solution to securely partition each customer's network but still allow for shared resources such as printers and Internet access. Fortinet's FortiGate systems enabled us to achieve this by virtualizing network security, which also helped free-up network bandwidth and increase our network performance.
