Secure the LAN edge with security-driven wired and wireless networking products2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure
The LAN offers one of the largest attack surfaces in a company’s network, and the number and types of network-connected devices and applications continue to grow exponentially. While end users want fast Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections with a smooth experience regardless of their connection type, IT needs increased security with reduced complexity and low overhead. Fortinet's LAN Edge Solution consolidates network management into our industry leading FortiGate, leading to comprehensive security on the LAN infrastructure and simpler management on a day-to-day basis.
The Fortinet LAN Edge solution consolidates network management into our industry-leading FortiGate. This provides comprehensive security for the LAN infrastructure and simpler management on a day-to-day basis. Fortinet enables the deployment of large-scale networks with minimal technical expertise via built-in best-practice configurations. Zero-touch provisioning delivers quick and easy application of device templates to sites at scale. FortiLink NAC creates improved visibility and segmentation, enabling auto-discovery of devices to implement “least privilege” access.
As branch networks continue to adopt SD-WAN and expand their application use to cloud based tools, there is a desire to consolidate branch network components to avoid an explosion of complexity. Companies need solutions that converge their network security, their WAN and their LAN in order to ensure quality of experience while maintaining security.
Fortinet reduces appliance sprawl at the branch by combining the router, firewall, SD-WAN, and LAN controller into a single appliance.
Fortinet is the only vendor to converge industry-leading security services with native WAN and LAN, allowing integrated management of branch networking services to enable simplicity and save time.
Networks in campus settings are dynamic and complex, making them challenging to secure and manage. Many management platforms may allow IT staff to see network elements in a single interface, but the core components are not integrated. Without a common framework, the resulting networks are difficult for IT teams to manage and secure.Learn More
Extending corporate network access to remote workers can put a heavy burden on IT who must manage many remote sites that they have no control over. By deploying FortiAPs as remote APs, the same secure network that employees are used to in the office can be extended to their home.
