Fortinet, a global cybersecurity specialist, has announced the availability of novel offerings aimed at Intent-Based Network Security.

The latest release under the company's security fabric includes the release of FortiOS 5.6, the latest update of the advanced security operation systems, as well as the launch of Fortinet's new Security Operations Solution.

Outlined in a recent report by Joe Skorupa and Andrew Lerner, Intent-based network adoption is driven by digital business transformation's requirements, which demand increased network agility and reliability.

Additionally, the report highlighted increasing pressures on infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders to find better approaches to identifying the requirements of the business to infrastructure behaviour within an accurate and timely process.

Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board and CEO at Fortinet, commented: "The demands of today's digital economy are driving increasingly complex networks that require highly skilled and rare talent to design, deploy, operate, and most importantly secure."

He asked: "Today's point products and platform security solutions simply aren't capable of providing the solution breadth, processing performance, or advanced automation necessary to address these demands.

"It's clear that traditional approaches to security are quickly becoming unsustainable. The Fortinet Security Fabric delivers the broad, powerful, and automated security solutions needed to solve today's challenges while laying the foundation for the self-sufficient, Intent-Based Network Security that will be critical to protect tomorrow's enterprises."
