Fabric Management Center - NOC
Reduce the complexity of operations with AIOps Network OperationsLearn More
The influx of new technologies introduced by digital transformation has created complex, vulnerable network environments that are difficult to secure with traditional defenses. While malicious cyberattacks remain a serious problem, a large percentage of breaches come from benign sources that could have been prevented. Moreover, 75% of network outages and performance issues are the result of configuration error.
Increasingly complex and fragmented infrastructures are also prime targets for cyberattacks. When an assortment of point security products is deployed organizations find they operate in silos. This isolation often results in the network operations team lacking clean and consistent insight into what is happening across the network.
A network security strategy that prioritizes AIOps Network Operations can help reduce one of the leading causes of cyber risk and downtime – human error and misconfigurations. As a key part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, Fabric Management Center - NOC simplifies network operations by addressing this core challenge for any network of infrastructure teams across small, medium, or large enterprises.
Digital Experience Monitoring
FortiMonitor delivers cloud-based visibility of every service, network device, and application in any deployment, whether it is containers, cloud, on-premises, or hybrid. FortiMonitor extends network monitoring beyond the Fortinet Security Fabric, to encompass context from third-party networks, infrastructures, applications, and clouds for comprehensive digital experience monitoring (DEM).
By analyzing both network and security health on the digital experience, potential problem areas are identified and remediated before they impact the business.
IT teams gain full visibility of network performance and security posture across the globe by observing user-to-application performance while identifying security anomalies.
Ease of Use
In addition, simple SaaS deployment of network and digital experience monitoring integrated into the Fortinet Security Fabric correlates security telemetry with monitoring metrics.
FortiAIOps is an artificial intelligence with machine learning (AI/ML) solution. This ensures the quick collection of logs and identifies anomalies, while performing network operations center (NOC) optimizations.
Leveraging solutions within Fortinet’s AI-enabled Security Fabric, FortiAIOps provides comprehensive network visibility and correlation. A set of ML inspection points across the network rapidly analyze the logs, enabling dynamic insights and event correlation for the network operations center (NOC).
NOC Anomaly Detection
Maximize correlation while removing data volume complexity and prioritize alerts to understand the root causes of end-user performance issues. Reduce mean time to respond (MTTR), identify anomalies with data visualization and correlation across policy, device, LAN, WAN, cloud.
Utilize your existing network telemetry with FortiAnalyzer without adding network overhead. FortiAIOps is a management extension application that’s installed on Fabric Management Platform. This accelerates the time to on-board and the time to value.
Automation-enabled provisioning of remote offices reduces the cost and complexity of bringing an office online. This also reduces the truck-roll costs involved per site.
Leverage automation scripts and APIs to enable provisioning in minutes. Provisioning templates can also be stored in a central repository for future use to discover changes. Zero-touch provisioning is supported for all Fortinet Security Fabric-enabled devices.
Centrally schedule device configuration changes and backups. Track changes with revisions mapped to the individual who triggered the change. Automate changes based on triggers within the Security Fabric.
Single-pane-of-glass management and visibility helps reduce multiple complex management consoles and enables a unified Security Fabric console.
Deployment Flexibility and Scale
Leverage one console to manage up to 100,000 FortiGates. Customers and partners have deployment flexibility with hardware, virtual machine, cloud, or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) options for centralized network management.
Optimize Policy Management
Centrally manage all policies across next-generation firewall, SD-WAN, SD-Branch, cloud, segmentation, and other use cases. Leverage the templates and pre-built connectors to orchestrate changes from one single console.
Compliance management is usually a manual and inefficient process that involves multiple teams and takes months to get right.
Continuous Risk Assessment
Continuous risk assessment for best practices helps comply with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Center for Internet Security (CIS). Improve risk posture and easily apply recommended changes.
Leverage customizable reports that track who suggested and made changes to policies and configurations and why. More importantly, get automated reports for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), NIST, CIS frameworks and more.
Security Fabric Analytics
Analytics-driven threat detection can detect threats and identify them as high, medium, or low risks for the enterprise.
Real-time Network Monitoring and Reporting
Leverage the Security Fabric analytics engine for real-time visibility into the network around service-level agreements (SLA), policy usage and more. Access hundreds of automated reports and charts to enable simple onboarding for key monitors.
Real-time Indicator of Compromise (IOC) Detection
Analysis of logs received from FortiGates and other devices in the Security Fabric help identify IOCs both inline and for historic analysis. In addition, threat indicators are constantly updated from the FortiGaurd Labs threat intelligence team.
Provide tools to enable better collaboration between both network and security operations teams via incident investigation, timeline, SOC reports, SOC dashboards, and easy integration with SIEM.
Leverage turnkey workflow automations and integrations to reduce the time to detect and respond to threats or operational anomalies.
Both FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer have embedded hooks for automating routine tasks and triggering alerts for any activity that is deemed to be a priority.
Fortinet supports enterprise integrations with multiple connectors or applications deployed with other vendors. Fortinet solutions integrate with a variety of ticketing systems with powerful and flexible API, enabling easy incident resolution with an organization’s existing workflow.
