Fortinet cloud security is now available across all five major cloud providers. We’re excited to announce that our flagship FortiGate virtual machine is now available for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) through the Cloud Launcher marketplace.
With this latest NGFW innovation in place, Fortinet has once again widened the performance and security gap between our closest competitors and us. And our ongoing commitment to an engineering-driven architectural approach to security ensures that this gap will only continue to widen, ensuring that customers always have access to the cutting edge security tools they need to enable their continued success in the new digital economy.
As global cyberattacks persist, cybersecurity is becoming a main focus in the C-suite. Gone are the days where it’s just a concern for IT teams. These rapid, sophisticated attacks across industries have demonstrated that cybersecurity is the responsibility of the entire organization as they seek to avoid the crippling effects associated with data breaches.
Threats are constantly evolving to evade security defenses at the same time that digital transformation initiatives are introducing new attack vectors. And in addition to staying ahead of the latest threats, security solutions must also keep up with the vast amounts of differing network traffic types they have to inspect, such as IPv4 and IPv6, and increasingly, encrypted traffic as well. And they must do all this without adding latency or decreasing the speed of access. Today’s threats also proliferate quickly, requiring advanced threat prevention...
The compelling benefits of SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) architectures are catching the attention of companies around the world. SD-WAN offers application-awareness combined with increased performance, flexibility, and simplicity when compared to fundamentally more expensive legacy WAN technologies.
Having secure, reliable access to the internet is no longer an option. It’s necessary. This is especially true for schools, as curriculum and resources are increasingly moving online and cyberattacks are becoming more frequent. In fact, data shows that 141 US school districts have reported one or more cyber incidents since 2016. To meet these needs, K-12 schools and districts across the United States are currently in the process of applying for E-rate for Funding Year 2018. The E-rate program from the Universal Service Administration...
FortiGuard Labs has been actively monitoring FALLCHILL, validating all its IOCs (indicators of compromise), and providing protection for our customers. In a previous post we provided a high level overview of FALLCHILL. In this research report we dig even further, providing a deep dive analysis of the FALLCHILL Remote Administration Tool (RAT) in order to shed additional light on this threat, and thereby help our customer and the security community at large defend against this threat and similar threats.
Organizations have the option of adding the first cloud-based sandbox product in AWS marketplace, FortiSandbox, to their cloud security infrastructure, allowing businesses to operate a complete security practice entirely in the cloud. Fortinet’s Security Fabric solutions for the cloud offer the ability to leverage security controls that are delivered, updated, and managed entirely through the cloud environment.
Fortinet is proud to be a Gold Sponsor of the 6th annual AWS re:Invent conference, being held at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas between November 27th and December 1st. re:Invent is the largest gathering of members of the global cloud community in the world, bringing together over 40,000 attendees from over 80 different nations attending over 1,000 different technical sessions, keynote addresses, labs, and special events over the course of the conference. Fortinet will be showcasing our latest cloud-based solutions, including the Fortinet...
The majority of these breaches have one thing in common. IT teams are failing to practice basic security hygiene. Cybercriminals target known vulnerabilities because they know that most organizations will have failed to patch or replace their vulnerable devices. WannaCry targeted a vulnerability for which a patch had been available for months. Shame on them. But Petya followed a month later and targeted the exact same vulnerability. And millions of devices were still affected. So, shame on us.
