Fabric Solution Network Operations

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

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.

End-to-End Visibility

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.

Network Correlation

Network Correlation

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.

Management Extension

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.

Easy Deployment

Simplified Deployment

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.

Zero-Touch Provisioning

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.

Configuration Management

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.

Centralized Management and Visibility

Centralized Management

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

Compliance

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.

Complaince Reporting

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

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.

SOC Adoption

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.

Workflow Optimization

Network Automation

Leverage turnkey workflow automations and integrations to reduce the time to detect and respond to threats or operational anomalies.

Automation Hooks

Both FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer have embedded hooks for automating routine tasks and triggering alerts for any activity that is deemed to be a priority.

Enterprise Integrations

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.
