I’m excited to be at Protect 2016, HPE’s largest security event of the year! Over 2,000 security professionals at the event will explore an integrated approach to security and risk management, and learn how to make effective security simple.
At Fortinet, we hold similar values. The modern response to increasingly challenging security issues happening in increasingly complex networked environments needs to be simplicity. As networks become more complicated, many organizations tend to keep adding new security devices to an already overburdened wiring closet. This complexity is the enemy of security. Point security solutions, with separate management interfaces and no meaningful way to gather or share joint threat information require manual correlation at best, and are marginally useful at worst. The truth is, monitoring, management, correlating data, operating, and updating an increasing number of security devices can actually take security staff away from their job of quickly identifying and responding to threats.
Instead, an effective response to today’s sophisticated threat landscape requires an integrated and collaborative approach. In April of this year, Fortinet introduced our Security Fabric architecture. This new strategy is designed to integrate security technologies for the endpoint, access layer, network, applications, data center, content, and cloud into a single collaborative security solution. Even better, this integrated solution can be orchestrated through a single management interface or pane of glass. The Security Fabric enables systems to share threat intelligence and management information, and provides unified policy enforcement. This result of this unified architectural approach is reduced complexity, while enabling actionable, effective, and coordinated responses to threats.
Join Fortinet at booth # SB32 while you’re at Protect 2016 to see a demo of the Fortinet Security Fabric in action! We’ll also have technical experts and executives on hand to discuss any security needs you may have, and we will be showcasing our industry-leading Fortinet products and solutions.
