High-Performing, Consistent, and Context-Aware SecurityUnderstanding FortiOS—The Heart of the Fortinet Security Fabric
FortiOS, the Heart of the Fortinet Security Fabric
As organizations accelerate their digital innovation initiatives, they need to make sure their security can keep up with today’s complex and fast-evolving threats. Network edges have exploded, which has splintered the network perimeter across the entire infrastructure.
This rapid expansion of the network edge has exacerbated the challenges caused by years of adding disparate point security products to solve one problem with no regard for an overall security strategy. These disparate solutions cannot work together and share information, making consistent security policy and end-to-end visibility impossible. Trying to maintain and monitor numerous hybrid, hardware, software, and X-as-a-Service solutions also overburdens security teams.
Fortinet’s operating system, FortiOS, is the foundation of the Fortinet Security Fabric, consolidating many technologies and use cases into a simplified, single policy and management framework.
What’s New in FortiOS 7.0
The release of FortiOS 7.0 dramatically expands the capability to deliver consistent security covering hybrid networks, endpoints, and cloud deployments through the Fortinet Security Fabric.
More than 300 new features and updates have been added to FortiOS, which span the full Fortinet portfolio. Key enhancements that secure and enable users no matter where they’re located are highlighted below.
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)
FortiOS 7.0 enables security and networking functionality to be delivered anywhere users and devices are located via cloud-based consumption (Security-as-a-Service).

Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
FortiOS 7.0 delivers new ZTNA functionality to enable controlled remote access to applications to remote users, home offices, and other locations. It’s easier and faster to initiate than a traditional VPN, giving users a better experience while providing a more granular set of security protections. Users can automatically establish secure and reliable connections whether the applications they need to access are located in the data center, private cloud, or public cloud.Learn More
