Fortinet’s suite of security solutions and the Fortinet Security Fabric architecture provide the foundation for a secure MSS infrastructure, including SD-WAN, hybrid cloud security and automation, secure WiFi and switching, advanced threat protection, Internet of Things (IoT)/operational technology (OT) visibility and security, and more.
For some time now, SMBs have assumed cybercriminals won’t consider them a viable target due to their size. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. SMBs still provide plenty of incentive to entice cybercriminals to target their networks, thanks to the unique security challenges they face.
To meet the challenges of the constantly evolving cybersecurity threat landscape, service providers require a robust and flexible infrastructure that enables them to adapt to new lines of attack.
CSPs are well-positioned to benefit from the continuing growth of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and related systems—but only as long as the infrastructure can support some IoT-specific challenges, including of course security.
Fortinet’s charter with CSPs is to interpret market trends, address key issues, and help drive carrier businesses forward. By improving your competitive positioning, we help everyone make money. This happens through coordination with local teams, unifying efforts across countries and regions, and developing ecosystem of partners. We engage with CSPs in three main capacities.
Because digital technologies are widely available to everyone, this flattens the competitive advantage. How an enterprise and a CSP manages their DX implementation becomes the defining factor of a successful transformation. There are three factors to emphasize with your customers.
When you review the different recommendations around SD-WAN requirements from analysts and other technology experts, security is often missing from the bill of requirements. Even though SD-WAN communications are encrypted and can support VPN services, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to protecting critical data moving between different network devices, domains, and ecosystems. Without robust security integrated into SD-WAN services, customers who buy SD-WAN are also buying a mystery grab bag of unknown vulnerabilities. This is clearly unacceptable given today’s threat and business risk environments.
