Creating a Diverse Security Strategy at the Natural History Museum

"With FortiInsight, we have additional eyes and ears so we can see how users are accessing, using and sharing our data."

Chris Sleep, Information Security Manager, Natural History Museum



Founded in 1881, the Natural History Museum welcomes more than 5 million visitors each year and holds over 80 million specimens spanning from the formation of the solar system to present day. As an acclaimed research institution, it also publishes over 700 scientific papers a year with contributions from the museum’s 300 scientists as well as international collaborators. 

This massive institution required a security solution that would protect data beyond the museum perimeter, secure a globally distributed workforce, and enable secure data access and sharing. Fortinet's FortiInsight provides the Natural History Museum with end-to-end visibility across their entire distributed network to protect business-critical data.
