FortiGate Management & Reporting Overview

Security teams globally are challenged by resource constraints, both in terms of the number of staff and raw security talent. Moreover, security teams are asked to do more, often in more complex networks and with growing numbers of alerts from multiple systems. Successful security teams allay these challenges by implementing three best practices. First, they simplify the way view management, combining operation NOC-style views with security-based SOC context. Second, they regularly measure and score their security effectiveness, enabling them anytime to answer how secure they are. Third, they demand deep integration so they can automate repetitive actions, especially across silos when possible.

FortiAnalyzer Demo

FortiAnalyzer offers centralized network security logging and reporting for the Fortinet Security Fabric. FortiAnalyzer accepts inbound logs from multiple downstream Fortinet devices such as FortiGate, FortiMail, and FortiWeb devices etc. Functions such as viewing/filtering individual event logs, generating security reports, alerting based on behaviors, and investigating activity via drill-downs are all key features of FortiAnalyzer. In this demo, see how it presents the visibility of your networks such as an aggregate view of applications, web usage, and potentially malicious behavior affect your network.

FortiCloud Demo

FortiGate administrators can get basic logging, analytics, and management capabilities by using FortiCloud. With the FortiCloud service, administrators can store up to 1 GB of FortiGate logs for free or up to 200 GB of FortiGate logs with an annual device subscription. In this demo, you can look at how multiple devices can be managed under a single console. For each device, you can then examine its associated real-time dashboard visualizations, inspect traffic and security logs, view reports, or check the status of suspicious file submissions being analyzed by FortiCloud’s anti-malware sandboxing technology.

FortiManager Demo

FortiManager allows IT personnel to maintain control over Fortinet’s security and networking devices through an easy to use, centralized, “single pane of glass” management console. Administrators can fully control the deployment of security policies, FortiGuard content security updates, firmware revisions, and individual configurations for thousands of Fortinet devices. In this demo, you will see how devices are registered, how policies and objects (along with policy packages) can be enacted, and how devices can be configured and updated easily.

FortiGate Management and Reporting FAQs

Does FortiManager manage FortiAnalyzer? 

Yes. This is the recommended deployment, actually. When FortiManager is managing FortiAnalyzer, all FortiAnalyzer interface tiles come up alongside FortiManager tiles, enabling all workflows.    

Should I go with FortiManager or FortiCloud?    

FortiCloud is a cloud-based service that streamlines deployment, management and reporting for FortiGate and Unified Access products. It is a simple solution that provides the basics of management and configuration. FortiManager (and FortiAnalyzer) is the full-featured central management solution for Fortinet products. Advanced configurations, workflows and reporting (through FortiAnalyzer) are available here. Your organization’s needs will dictate whether a simplified cloud service or full-featured appliance (hardware or virtual) that you manage is a better fit.    

If I only have a few FortiGates, do I need central management?      

While all FortiGate configurations can be done locally, the time saved managing elements of or a complete central policy is a strong benefit in going with FortiManager. FortiAnalyzer greatly extends reporting and analysis capabilities for FortiGate both in breadth by combining data from multiple FortiGates into a single perspective, as well as in depth with much longer reporting horizons and advanced features found in Event Manager and the FortiGuard IOC service.
