The unification of firewall security and management is accomplished with hybrid mesh firewalls (HMF). This approach offers significant value by combining the benefits of multiple firewall architectures.
Unified management streamlines administration and provides enhanced security, enabling centralized control and monitoring across the entire network. Further, it optimizes security policies, simplifies deployment, improves scalability, and enhances threat visibility—ultimately bolstering network protection while reducing complexity and operational overhead.
The Fortinet hybrid mesh firewall approach addresses the challenges of complex network and security infrastructure by revolutionizing your defense strategy. By unifying all firewall deployments across environments, you gain operational efficiency, stronger security (with consistent policies), and comprehensive visibility. With centralized and unified management, along with AI-powered services, you can ensure consistent, real-time protection against even the newest and most sophisticated threats across your entire organization.
Fortinet has been recognized as a Leader again, and is positioned highest in Ability to Execute, marking our 13th year in the Magic Quadrant™.
FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls deliver the industry’s best ROI, provide AI/ML-powered threat protection, and support the convergence of networking and security.
With all features and functions built on a single operating system, FortiOS, organizations have access to consistent functionality across all solutions and form factors, including appliances, virtual environments, and secure access service edge (SASE).
We are pleased to announce Fortinet has been named as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Firewalls, Q4 2022 report.
We believe our position as a Leader is a testament to our investment in providing a next-generation firewall (NGFW) solution that serves as an enabler of digital acceleration, made possible through the convergence of advanced networking and security capabilities.
The convergence of security and networking closes security gaps and unifies management, ensuring consistent security policies across all firewall deployments.
Safeguard critical infrastructure and sensitive data while establishing a solid defense perimeter to prevent unauthorized access and protect against malicious attacks. Data center firewalls inspect and filter north/south and east/west network traffic, detecting and stopping threats to enhance the overall security posture, while offering scalability and performance optimizations to ensure uninterrupted availability for data-intensive applications and services.
Provide security at network edges by deploying firewalls closer to endpoints for immediate threat protection, minimizing potential damage by preventing lateral movement of threats and securing remote sites. The distributed nature enhances network performance, reduces latency, and optimizes traffic routing. Enforcing consistent security policies across multiple locations improves overall network resilience.
FortiSASE delivers a comprehensive solution to enable consistent security posture for users both on and off the network, while simplifying security policy management. Our single-vendor SASE solution offers a full set of networking and security capabilities including SWG, Universal ZTNA, CASB, FWaaS, and secure SD-WAN integration—all managed with one UI.
