Why the Modern Enterprise Demands Cloud-delivered Security

Always-on cloud-delivered threat protection for mobile workforce

More than 71% of enterprise networks  are comprised of remote or hybrid workers that split time between the office and off-network locations.

While the pandemic forced organizations to suddenly support large remote workforces, they are now leaning into adopting permanent work-from-anywhere policies.. This hybrid workforce model has changed the enterprise network from one that was predominantly on-premises, to a new multi-branch network. The cloud edge, (the direct connection between users and cloud applications), is now the dominant broker of communications between network users and the corporate network.

SASE offers the ability to:

  • Drive better policy enforcement for remote users
  • Reduce tool sprawl and improve operations
  • Lower risk exposure

 

The Challenge

Off-net users, overly reliant on VPN, access the internet from home or from public places on the road without the same firewall and other security available in the office. Threats acquired at home or on the road then threaten the corporate network when infected devices access corporate resources. Additionally, user experience can be degraded for off-network users, with over 70% of remote employees reporting performance issues when connecting to the network.

Therefore, networking and security leaders are under pressure to extend on-premises security and zero-trust policy enforcement to users anywhere, without impacting user experience or compromising threat detection and remediation capabilities.

 

The Solution


FortiSASE Secure Internet Access (FortiSASE SIA) provides high-performance, always-on threat protection and unified networking and security functions beyond VPN. These capabilities are supported by the Fortinet Operating System (FortiOS) and include:

  • Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS)
  • Intrusion prevention (IPS)
  • Data loss prevention (DLP)
  • Domain Name System (DNS)
  • Secure web gateway (SWG)
  • Zero-trust network access (ZTNA)
  • Sandboxing

Remote users are secured with a scalable, SASE solution that is backed with Fortinet’s industry-leading threat intelligence. FortiSASE SIA simplifies the challenges of managing and securing users who are out of the office by providing the same security policy protection whether on- or off-net via the simple FortiClient Agent.

 

Benefits

FortiSASE SIA prevents corporate network infections by enforcing security policies and zero trust network access (ZTNA) to off-network remote users. This extends Fortinet’s best-in-class enterprise security and networking to the cloud edge. Security and networking stakeholders can extend and enforce consistent firewall and security policies at scale, regardless of a user’s location.
