Automated Security Operations



To keep up with the volume, sophistication, and speed of today’s cyber threats, you need AI-driven security operations that can function at machine speed. Our Security Operations portfolio provides advanced threat detection and response capabilities, centralized security monitoring, and automation across the entire Fortinet Security Fabric.

Stay Ahead of Threats

Fortinet utilizes many types of artificial intelligence in various locations for faster and stronger defense. Threat intelligence from FortiGuard Labs, inline security controls deployed throughout the organization, and centralized advanced threat detection and response in the SOC combine to deliver comprehensive protection from even the newest threats.

Close All Gaps


In addition to covering the breadth of the attack surface, AI-driven Security Operations inspects along the whole cyber kill chain. From earliest stage reconnaissance and weaponization, all the way through to the cybercriminal’s ultimate action on objectives. In this manner, organizations use the sophistication of multi-stage cyber-campaigns against their operators, gaining multiple opportunities to identify the attack in progress before harm is done.



Challenge: Security Operations

icon challenge attack surface

Expanded Attack Surface

Digital innovation (including WFA, cloud, and supply chain)- has expanded the attack surface and cyber exposure

icon challenge evolving attacks

Evolving and Evasive Attacks

Increasingly sophisticated multi-stage campaigns mimicking legitimate activities often evade security

icon challenge security complexity

Security Complexity

Large number of security products & consoles, slow identification and response, exacerbated by the cyber skills shortage

Industry Analyst Recommendations


"The #1 reason organizations believe security operations are more difficult than they were two years ago is that the threat landscape is evolving and changing rapidly."


ESG SOC Modernization and the Role of XDR, ESG, October 2022 


"Rapid response of only minutes at best is required…This forces organizations to reduce the time to respond, typically by delegating more tasks to machines."


Gartner Market Guide for Security Orchestration, Automation and Response Solutions, June 2019


"Cybersecurity product consolidation is transforming security buying. 75% of organizations are currently pursuing a security vendor consolidation — only 29% did so in 2020."

Use Cases

Fortinet AI-Driven Security Operations solutions speed security operations with artificial intelligence to reduce risk and improve efficiency.

Endpoint Security

Combining behavior-based endpoint protection, detection, and response offers a modern approach to endpoint security. Fortinet uses multiple machine-learning and deep-learning technologies to power all three functions at each endpoint.

Advanced Threat Protection

Fortinet provides a range of behavior-based detection and response capabilities that include and go beyond the endpoint. Sandbox analysis, network detection and response, deception, user and entity behavior analytics, and more, work as integrated extensions of inline security controls to thwart cyberattacks.

SOC Platform

Designed to meet the needs of organizations of varying sizes and security maturity, a range of security options provide centralized visibility, analytics, and control across the security infrastructure.
