Fortinet expands Security Fabric
Company bolsters its range of Secure Access solutions with more than a dozen new products
Fortinet has announced additions to its Secure Access Architecture of wired and wireless networking solutions.
The new architecture merges security with enterprise access layers to provide seamless protections from IoT (Internet of Things) to the Cloud.
With the new additions, Fortinet expands its Security Fabric with 14 new products to broaden its Secure Access Architecture solutions that weave together security with the access layers to provide protections across the expanding attack surface.
Fortinet’s Secure Access Architecture solutions offer universal management and policy controls that simplify administration across wired and wireless infrastructures, enabling enhanced segmentation of devices from critical data.
These flexible access solutions offer options for on premise or hosted deployments, controller or controller-less management, and technologies like 802.11ac Wave II speeds to suit the access and security needs for enterprises of all sizes, the company says.
“As more BYOD along with millions of new IoT devices attach to corporate networks, defending the access layer is now critical. Applying a fabric approach to enable network segmentation while embedding security within access networks is the only way to secure this rapidly expanding attack surface,” says John Maddison, senior vice president of products and solutions, Fortinet. “The Fortinet Secure Access Architecture enables customers to deliver high speed access and security in a single, integrated solution.”
