We first started working with Fortinet way back in 2004, and they’re a great vendor for a powerful, fast but cost effective solution, particularly around the FortiGate portfolio.
Fortinet’s high-performance network security platform has solutions for the core (internal segmentation), the edge (next generation firewall), and access (secure access). The network operating system is flexible enough for deployments of all sizes and environments, from carriers to small businesses.
Fortinet are also renowned for their Unified Threat Management (UTM), the combined UTM solution can provide VPN, IPS, application control, web filtering, antivirus, antispam, and data loss prevention. This solution helps you consolidate your network while delivering high end protection and simplifying management while again being extremely cost effective.
The Cyber Threat Assessment Programme (CTAP) is a tool that Fortinet also offer which gives you visibility of the type of threats your organisation encounters. This focuses right down even to the types of botnet or malware that you’re being targeted with and what devices are at risk! It also offers a report on network utilisation and performance - what’s the throughput, session, and bandwidth usage requirements during busy hours.
As part of our Professional Services Programme we offer firewall health checks and fine tuning to ensure that your network is running at the optimum potential and is as secure as possible.
