Prevent Network Intrusions and Get Control of Your Applications

Organizations are constantly under attack. Data breaches are on the rise, driving the requirement to add more security. It’s also key to have visibility into and control over network traffic, especially at the network perimeter and between network segments.

FortiGuard NGFW service delivers proven application control and intrusion prevention (IPS) technologies to improve overall security posture. Fortinet tied for the highest overall security effectiveness at 99.97% in the 2016 NGFW security tests from NSS Labs.

Conventional firewalls only identify port, protocol, and IP addresses, but FortiGuard Application Control for FortiGate next-generation firewalls provides extensive visibility into application usage and keeps malicious and risky applications out of your network. FortiGuard IPS protects against the latest network intrusions by detecting and blocking threats before they reach network devices. Our combination of real-time threat intelligence updates and thousands of existing intrusion prevention rules delivers the industry’s best IPS protection.
