As organizations undergo digital acceleration, their attack surface expands and network complexity increases. At the same time, cyber threats are becoming increasingly automated and innovative. Today’s organizations need a new approach to deliver the expected secure high-performing user-to-application connection.

Gartner has named its cybersecurity mesh architecture (CSMA) one of the top strategic technology trends for 2022. It says organizations adopting cybersecurity mesh as part of their collaborative ecosystems will reduce financial losses from cybersecurity attacks by 90%.

Gartner’s insight around CSMA may sound like a new initiative, but this type of protection has existed for more than a decade through the Fortinet Security Fabric.

  • Spans the extended digital attack surface and cycle, enabling self-healing security and networking to protect devices, data, and applications.
  • Brings together the concepts of convergence and consolidation to provide comprehensive real-time cybersecurity protection from users to applications.

Fortinet Security Fabric with Cybersecurity Mesh Architecture

To break the attack sequence, you need to be able to rapidly adjust the security posture to defend cohesively against newly discovered attacks across ever-expanding attack surfaces. Learn how our broad, integrated, and automated approach delivers on this critical initiative with the Fortinet Security Fabric.

The Fabric is Built on Three Key Attributes

The Key Pillars of the Fortinet Security Fabric

One operating system drives the Fortinet Security Fabric, which supports granular use cases with more deployment models than any other solution. These include physical, virtual, cloud, and X-as-a-Service environments. And it encompasses the industry’s broadest ecosystem and product portfolio, spanning endpoints, networks, and clouds.

FortiGuard AI-Powered Security

All FortiGuard security services are natively integrated into the Fortinet Security Fabric. This enables fast, coordinated detection and enforcement across the entire attack surface. Risk is continually assessed and the Security Fabric automatically adjusts to counter the latest known and unknown threats in real time.

FortiGuard services are powered by FortiGuard Labs' proven machine learning and artificial intelligence models. These are informed by unified data sets feeding from networks, endpoints, and clouds, rich independent research, and comprehensive industry collaboration.

zero trust access

User and Device Security

Users and devices are the endpoints of the organization and need both protection from attacks and safe access to resources.  This portion of the Fortinet Security Fabric provides both signature-based and behavior-based endpoint protections with the ability to remediate the effects of an attack. For safe access, User and Device Security provides the zero trust controls for identifying users, authenticating them, and then granting them access to networks and applications.  This includes both user-associated devices such as laptops and mobile phones and non-user-associated devices such as IP cameras, printers, and badge readers.
