Fortinet Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)

As we’ve seen in news headlines over and over, even major brands with dedicated security teams fall victim to advanced targeted attacks. With Verizon alone investigating nearly 80,000 security incidents (per its Data Breach Investigation Report) last year, you need to be sure your organization is prepared to defend against these threats. 

It’s clear that no one technology will be able to stop every threat, especially as they continue to become more complex and adaptive. Rapid innovation in malware, frequent zero day attacks, high degrees of social engineering, and emerging evasion techniques can all render any single security solution ineffective. 

To fight today’s sophisticated threats, organizations must adopt an integrated security strategy that uses multiple technologies applied across the attack cycle and throughout the organization. 

Fortinet’s Advanced Threat Protection Framework consists of three elements:

Unique Benefits of Fortinet ATP Framework

Sandboxing is an important new technology to combat advanced threats. This video further outlines the unique advantages of a tightly integrated combination of technologies, unified with Fortinet threat intelligence into a complete solution, to counter cyberattacks.

Prevent: Act on known threats and information

The most efficient way to immediately block a variety of known threats without impacting network performance is to use next generation firewalls, secure email gateways, web application firewalls, and endpoint security clients to stop malware, intrusions, botnets, etc. 

Minimizing the attack surface with carefully controlled access is also an important part of the first line of defense. User identity, two-factor authentication, patch management, and VPNs all help reduce threat vectors.

Detect: Identify previously unknown threats

Zero day attacks and sophisticated threats are often engineered to evade traditional security solutions. Advanced threat detection technologies must be added to automatically detect previously unknown threats and create actionable threat intelligence. Sandboxing in particular tests unknown items in a secure, instrumented environment to see how they behave, in order to turn the unknown into the known.

Mitigate: Respond to potential incidents

Once a new threat is identified, it needs to be immediately mitigated. This can be handled automatically using direct intelligence sharing between detection and prevention products, or with assisted mitigation: a combination of people and technology working together. 

Further, protections from previously unknown threats can be put into place across all the layers to complete the cycle and improve the organization’s security posture in advance of future attacks.

 

Get End-to-end Protection with the Fortinet Security Fabric

Fortinet is the only company with independently top-rated security components—from endpoint and access through data center and cloud—designed to work together as an integrated security fabric to provide true end-to-end protection. Our enterprise firewalls collaborate with endpoint protection, email and web application security, sandboxing, and other key offerings in the Fortinet portfolio, while allowing for open integrations (via industry standard API’s) with third-party security products. 

Not only are all Fortinet Advanced Threat Protection components powered by the leading security intelligence of FortiGuard Labs, they also leverage local intelligence dynamically generated by FortiSandbox and shared across the interconnected security infrastructure. This sharing automatically responds to the latest targeted attacks, continually improves an organization’s security posture, closes natural gaps between multi-vendor point products, and reduces the time spent managing IT security.
