Building an effective security framework designed for your organization needs to start with three basic strategies. With these best practices in place, you should be able to quickly cut through the noise, avoid the “shiny new toy” syndrome, and quickly assess whether a particular solution is right for your organization right now.
To help organizations adapt to the new realities of the emerging digital marketplace and the related threats targeting digital businesses, IBM Security just announced that their X-Force Threat Management (XFTM) Framework is now available as a Threat Management-as-a-Service offering. We are also pleased to announce that this news also includes that Fortinet was selected to be a key security partner in this new offering. Fortinet and IBM have been strategic partners for years, and this new XFTM/Fortinet partnership further strengthens that relationship.
Fortinet just announced at the RSA Conference 2018 the industry’s first purpose-built NOC-SOC solution designed to bridge workflows, analysis, and automated response between operational and security processes.
The EDUCAUSE Security Professionals Conference is coming up! Get a preview of the themes and events of this year’s conference, as well as what Fortinet will be there to discuss.
Fortinet is proud to announce that BGP Flowspec has now been incorporated into FortiDDoS This new functionality enables Service Providers to provide an effective solution to customers when a DDoS attack saturates their Internet links. Flowspec automates the coordination of traffic filtering by providing service providers with information that identifies specific packets to be dropped during a flood. Such a hybrid solution, combining a cost-effective FortiDDoS at the customer premises providing the first level of mitigation, with and a cloud-based scrubbing center providing volumetric attack mitigation, provides important benefits to customers impacted by these sorts of attacks.
The evolution of malware is being fueled largely by the proliferation of IoT. According to Gartner data, there were about 8 billion connected “things” in 2017. But that number is expected to nearly triple to more than 20 billion in just the next two years, which averages out to roughly three connected devices per person on Earth. Simply put, the opportunity for cybercriminals to enter networks and steal data or hold segments (or the entirety) of the network hostage is growing at an exponential rate, with no signs of slowing down.

Digital business is transforming how organizations and individuals communicate, operate, and interact. These changes not only hold the promise for new opportunities, but also bring new risks to data, economies, and resources. Which is why Fortinet is a Gold Sponsor at this year’s IBM Think 2018, being held March 19-22 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
In today’s digital economy, speed and efficiency are essential. So is the ability to access data from anywhere and from any device. These demands are forcing the network to change, increasing the amount of data that networks need to manage and the number of devices connected to those networks. This is responsible for growing the potential attack surface of today’s networks.
