Abu Dhabi Aviation Enhances Network Security and Performance With Fortinet

“The advantage of Fortinet is that the required technology is integrated in a single solution. This means that all components: the firewall, the switches, and the Wi-Fi access points work in concert to enforce a consistent security policy across the whole network. That feature makes the system simple to manage.”

Sibtain Ali, Senior Network Engineer, Abu Dhabi Aviation


With a variety of aviation support offerings worldwide, especially for the oil and gas industry, Abu Dhabi Aviation (ADA) needed to upgrade its IT security for ongoing aviation safety and operational excellence. Therefore, it launched a transformation project to redesign its network infrastructure with security at its core.

For ease of management for ADA’s relatively small IT security team and to accommodate scaling with its business growth, it selected Fortinet solutions. The integration of FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) with FortiSwitches and FortiAP wireless access points meant that ADA could easily enforce a consistent security policy across the whole network. Even with the additional security processing capabilities of the FortiGate NGFWs and encrypted traffic, ADA enjoys high network performance. The company also benefits from FortiManager’s central visibility and management, which helps make compliance and security operations easier tasks. By using FortiAnalyzer, ADA has cut the time it takes to detect and mitigate threats, and reduced the security risks that arise from manual configuration errors and data processing.
