Integrated Application & Network Protection
Protecting networks from modern threats requires visibility from the network layer of the traffic all the way through the application layer. This requires comprehensive protocol awareness and security content coverage that includes protection against a broad array of threats, including:
Denial of service attacks
The FortiGate secure gateway controls communications and protects networked assets from vulnerabilities and malicious security threats. This is accomplished through the complete integration of technologies which are normally found in separate products.
Fortinet is the pioneer and world’s leading provider of Unified Threat Management (UTM) security systems that enable secure business communications and deliver the best security, performance and total cost of ownership available. Our award-winning security systems and subscription services protect the networks of more than 20,000 customers worldwide – including telecommunications carriers, service providers and enterprises of all sizes.
Fortinet was founded in 2000 by Ken Xie, the visionary founder and former president and CEO of NetScreen (later sold to Juniper for more than $3.5 billion) and is led by a strong and seasoned management team with deep experience in the networking and security arenas.
