Major Oil & Gas Company Secures Critical Infrastructure with FortiNAC Network Access Control

“Using NAC, this customer ensured uptime and reliability of service while gaining security and visibility across the entire network infrastructure.”  

 

As critical infrastructure and utilities continue to evolve with the demands of their everchanging marketplace, these organizations are also tasked with hardening their systems to ensure that delivery is never disrupted by security threats that take advantage of out of-compliance endpoints. This can be a special challenge for energy providers, whose industrial control systems (ICS) are often highly distributed. Requisitioning IT staff to personally maintain and update wide-ranging systems is not practical. Yet visibility, control, and response over these systems is crucial.

A leading oil and gas company with 5,000 endpoints across 200 locations in North America chose Fortinet’s Network Access Control (NAC) to help them secure their distributed endpoints and legacy equipment. Using NAC, this customer ensured uptime and reliability of service while gaining security and visibility across the entire network infrastructure. NAC provided for master control over disperse locations without difficult hardware installations or complex legacy equipment upgrades.
