Simplified, Flexible Licensing

FortiFlex is a points-based cybersecurity licensing program that allows organizations to easily provision the services and solutions they need on-demand. FortiFlex offers access to a complete suite of virtualized solutions and services for physical FortiGate appliances and can be applied to protect any environment where supported solutions need to be deployed: on-premises, physical and virtual data centers, clouds, hybrid clouds, and hybrid mesh firewall deployments.  Organizations can easily scale in or out and up or down as needed, and only pay for what they use.

Simplified Deployment and Purchasing Decisions

With FortiFlex, organizations are freed from having to pre-plan and pre-size their deployment purchases and risk undersizing or oversizing their solutions. Instead, you simply purchase packages of FortiFlex points that can then be used to deploy any solution size, in any quantity, and with any services. Because FortiFlex is a points-based program, you can eliminate excessive procurement cycles and lead time because you can use points based on consumption rather than go through a procurement process whenever additional solutions and services are needed.
