Fortinet talks advanced threats at GITEX
ATP and DDoS take centre stage
Fortinet is showcasing its advanced threat protection (ATP) framework and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack mitigation appliances on its stand in Hall 2. Fortinet offers a range of solutions based on the new FortiOS 5.2 and FortiDDoS appliances.
“Threats are evolving rapidly; the traditional security systems that are still implemented across the region are proving ineffective against today’s sophisticated threats,” says Alain Penel, Regional Vice President, Middle East, Fortinet.
“Look at the volume of data breach incidents that have been reported in 2013 and 2014 to see that there is a real risk for organisations in the region, which are not immune.”
FortiDDoS is 100% based on behaviour-based detection and ASIC DDoS processors, which enables the appliance to detect every DDoS threat, including sophisticated low-volume application layer attacks.
“Our participation at GITEX Technology Week 2014 will enable us to showcase our latest ATP and DDoS solutions to a wider audience and demonstrate our efforts to help CIOs make decisions,” Penel continues. “With the growing volume of threats, it’s imperative that organisations across the region take the necessary measures to protect themselves.”
