Join Fortinet at NRF 2020 in New York

By Fortinet | December 30, 2019

The retail sector is constantly undergoing technological changes as a means of improving the customer experience. Through the prioritization of an omnichannel strategy, retailers not only open doors for their customers, but also for cyber criminals looking to access sensitive data.

As new technologies are introduced, new challenges also arise, including PCI compliance, visibility, network performance, and more. Thus, when establishing a retail cybersecurity strategy, businesses must take care to consider both the threat – current and potential – as well as customer experience.

This concept will be a major point of discussion at NRF 2020: Retail’s Big Show.

NRF 2020: Retail’s Big Show

For over 100 years, NRF has been helping retailers learn, build, and succeed. At this year’s conference, approximately 38,000 attendees will gather to discuss the future of the retail sector and how to stay secure as their environments change. By collaborating with others within the industry, retailers can establish a vision that effectively aligns new, inventive technology with cybersecurity.

This event will be taking place from January 12 – 24, 2020 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, NY.

How Fortinet Helps Secure the Retail Sector

Fortinet’s enables businesses to connect and secure their distributed retail locations with a complete Security Fabric-based end-to-end solution. Take a closer look at these solutions and how they benefit retailers. NRF 2020 attendees are also encouraged to visit booth #3173 and speak to one of our experts to learn more.

Security Fabric: By adopting a fabric-based approach, retailers are able to effectively protect their digital infrastructures and assets against modern threats. The Fortinet Security Fabric allows retailers to have broad and scalable coverage across their network environments, even as new technologies such as the cloud, IoT, and mobile services are introduced. This is achieved through the consolidation of several security solutions into a single platform which enables the automation of security workflows and sharing of threat intelligence.

Secure SD-WAN: Powered by FortiGate next-generation firewalls, Fortinet’s Secure SD-WAN solution ensures businesses can meet the bandwidth and quality-of-service (QoS) requirements of a retail network while still providing industry-leading security controls and centralized policy management. With a single pane of glass controller and zero-touch deployment, this offering from Fortinet reduces the complexity of managing the vendor and solution sprawl that often comes with traditional SD-WAN deployments.

Web Application Security: FortiWeb is designed to protect business-critical web applications from attacks that target known and unknown vulnerabilities. When combined with FortiGuard Labs’ Web Application Security Service, retailers can fully defend themselves against modern threats such as bots and suspicious URLs. Additionally, dual machine learning-based detection engines ensure that applications stay safe amid advanced threats, from cross-site scripting to DoS attacks.

Zero-Touch Deployment and Management: Retailers of all sizes need an easy way to remotely deploy, configure, and manage their equipment at stores and ensure compliance.  With FortiDeploy, new or upgraded sites can be up and running with FortiGate next-generation firewalls, switches, and access points within minutes.  FortiManager enables customers to create scripts using automated templates for configuration of policies, profiles, SLAs, and reporting from a single pane of glass.  Additionally, our Professional Services team can create custom integrations with FortiProvision for customers needing more customization.  All of these options reduce costly logistical challenges and downtime when upgrades or changes are made.  This allows customers increased efficiency, scalability and time to focus on running their business.
