By definition, technology companies are in the business of delivering digital innovation for their customers. Their research and development teams use cutting-edge tools and systems, however, these can often expand the attack surface and create complexities for corporate network security.
Technology companies often hold unique cultural recognition, possess critical intellectual property, and maintain valuable customer information. Thus, they are attractive and continuous targets for criminals and their ever more sophisticated cyberattacks. These types of organizations need best-of-breed security solutions that not only scale to meet their unique challenges but are capable of nimble adaptation with these rapid-growth organizations.
Consolidation and Integration
Cybersecurity has traditionally been deployed one solution at time, in response to each rapidly emerging problem or reactive challenge. These solutions lack meaningful levels of cross-vendor integration and automation, making effective response to new threats simply too slow and ineffective.
Industry experts have proposed and recommended a connected platform, to address the continuously growing number of devices and solutions required to monitor data and communications between users and applications.
The Fortinet Security Fabric consolidates point-product vendors into a cybersecurity platform, allowing for much tighter integration, increased automation, and a more rapid, coordinated, and effective response to threats across the network.
Fortinet Solves Key Challenges Facing Technology Organizations
Digital innovation in the media and entertainment industry is focused heavily on the customer experience, with rapid consumer adoption of streaming services, online gaming, and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR). These services place heavy reliance on rapidly expandable cloud-based facilities, IoT devices, and mobile networks. Interruptions in service can rapidly degrade a company’s brand reputation.
Fortinet builds and enables security solutions that span every delivery platform, from the largest data centers to a single mobile device using a transitive cloud service. By integrating and automating the complimentary solutions in a single operating system, FortiOS, we enable best-of-breed overall security that can reach the most enforcement points and enable effective response. This reduces the exposure window while maintaining a consistent consumer experience.
