FortiTester from Fortinet helps enterprises and service providers maintain the most secure and resilient infrastructure through continuous validation of effectiveness and performance. With network performance testing and breach attack simulation (BAS), it assesses the people, processes, and technology on which the security of an organization depends.


Network Performance Testing

Whether assessing your next-generation firewall (NGFW), load balancers, or web infrastructure to identify pressure points and bottlenecks, FortiTester offers a variety of tests including RFC2544/3511, iMIX, HTTP/HTTPs/HTTP2, as well as SSL VPN for FortiGate(s). Network performance tests can also be used for the public cloud to validate cloud architecture and performance.


Breach Attack Simulation

FortiTester also runs a robust set of security tests, such as agent-based MITRE ATT&CK simulations, DDoS and fuzzing attacks, CVE-based intrusions including SCADA targets, malware strike packs, and much more. These are regularly refreshed to reflect the latest cyber campaigns seen by FortiGuard Labs. Being able to simulate attacks is crucial to identify gaps in security controls and to validate the people and processes on which the enterprise depends.

FortiTester in Action

Today's cyberthreat landscape is constantly evolving, requiring organizations to continually assess their cybersecurity posture to ensure it remains effective. Fortinet's FortiTester enables ongoing assessment by providing customers the tools to emulate the latest threats seen by FortiGuardLabs, on-demand. Further, by associating their threat actions with the MITRE ATT&CK Framework, organizations can determine their ability to defend both the specific campaign emulated as well as similar actions by previously unknown attacks. This is especially powerful as the MITRE Center for Threat Informed Defense found that only 15 techniques accounted for 90% of all activity analyzed over an 18-month period.
