Business & Technology
As organizations migrate workloads to the cloud and use applications, they want to ensure they’re not introducing security risks or impacting user experience and performance. To keep up with digital innovations and business demands, cloud security architects and network architects need their applications to scale automatically and securely, for these applications and data centers to always be available and for security to not be a performance bottleneck. Fortinet has launched FortiADC 6.1 and FortiGSLB Cloud to accelerate applications while delivering advanced security services.
Application delivery controllers (ADC) allow applications to scale more easily, to perform better, and to be more resilient. FortiADC offers multi-application load balancing, content routing and acceleration, as well as DDoS, IPS, defacement, cookie, DLP, and WAF security. FortiADC also provides SSL offload and remote inspection and firewall load balancing to further improve application performance. When deployed in a Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiADC can enhance security by adding scalability, availability and by using its location to detect and block threats before they get to your application server or firewall.
Meanwhile, FortiGSLB and FortiGSLB Cloud balance traffic between regions, clouds and data centers, improving performance and providing near instant fail-over in the event of an outage.
With the enhancements made to FortiADC and FortiGSLB Cloud as part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, organizations can further enhance their security infrastructure. FortiADC and FortiGSLB Cloud integrate with FortiAnalyzer and FortiSIEM to automate actions across Fortinet solutions and FortiGate connectors to improve the performance and availability of FortiGate security services. Some key new functionalities include:
The latest releases of FortiADC and FortiGSLB Cloud improve security by tightly integrating application delivery into the Fortinet Security Fabric. The release also improves Fortinet solutions like network firewall, SD-WAN, and secure remote access with connectors able to dynamically configure FortiADC and FortiGSLB to support Fortinet devices. Finally, the new release increases the visibility into network traffic with SSLi technology.
