Overview

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 7.2


Over 20 years of prioritizing organic research and development has positioned Fortinet as the driving force behind cybersecurity innovation, and with the release of FortiOS 7.2, Fortinet is setting new industry standards for converged networking and security.

Learn more about the three key industry challenges and how to solve them, with insights from John Maddison, CMO and Executive VP, Products. Watch the videos below for an overview, and our on-demand webinar for all the details.

New services include:

Inline Sandbox

Inline Sandbox

This innovation transforms a traditional detection sandbox capability into real-time in-network prevention to stop both known and unknown malware, with minimal impact on operations. The result is better ransomware protection when compared to solutions that allow suspicious files into the network and then must chase down malware once it's been identified.
