Fortlev is one of Brazil’s most important manufacturers of components for water storage solutions. Already benefitting from FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs), significant growth led Fortlev to take advantage of Fortinet’s capabilities to migrate and integrate the security platform for both its information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) networks. The company wanted to extend all existing security capabilities it had in its IT environment to the industrial automation platform to have greater control and keep the OT environment free from threats. In addition, it enabled FortiGate Secure SD-WAN on its NGFWs improving network availability to 99%. Using FortiAnalyzer, the company constantly monitors the network and is aware of risks and threats that may affect IT/OT network performance. And, FortiClient EMS (Enterprise Management Server) with its Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) features provides flexibility to reliably deploy and manage FortiClient endpoint security policies on remote employee devices.
See how Fortlev’s IT and OT networks benefit from high availability, optimal performance, security, and centralized management in this case study.
High availability for integrated IT/OT networks
99% network availability to support operations in eight factories
Centralized visibility and control enabling unified policies and rules management
Proactive network monitoring to prevent threats and attacks
