The Fortinet Distributed Enterprise Firewall (DEFW) Solution

Today’s distributed enterprises typically spend a lot of time and resources on overly complicated security deployments that may not even be effective.  As bandwidth requirements continue to increase at an alarming rate, many organizations are moving from MPLS to the Internet to increase bandwidth and reduce costs. In addition, groups within enterprises are directly accessing cloud applications. Both of these trends raise serious security concerns.

It doesn’t have to be complicated to deploy and manage the right security in all the right places. Fortinet’s Distributed Enterprise Firewall enables Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN). It essentially links network and security paths across the world through the Internet or private WAN links, making it a truly borderless infrastructure for the enterprise. In addition, it provides application visibility and intelligent load balancing. Consolidation and control of network security features in a centralized environment simplifies administration.

Multiple security features are commonly applied including firewall policies, application control services, VPN, intrusion prevention services, and antivirus services. A DEFW is likely to deploy advanced features in small offices as well, such as SSL inspection, CASI, cloud sandbox, and even DNS proxies.

The Fortinet DEFW Provides:

  • Integrated security and networking
