Fortinet Unveils Its Security Fabric to Arm Global Enterprises With Pervasive, Adaptive Cybersecurity From IoT to Cloud Networks

SUNNYVALE, CA, Apr 25, 2016 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Fortinet

"Pervasive digitization continues to redefine business, while technology trends like IoT and cloud computing are blurring the edges of the network today. Unfortunately, many enterprises continue to rely on security strategies developed decades ago that can no longer support the ever-increasing speed of business. Unlike platforms loosely coupled at the management level, the security fabric weaves together highly sophisticated hardware and software, enabling direct communication between solutions for a unified and rapid response to threats. Fortinet is committed to delivering security without compromise. With its Security Fabric, Fortinet is the only vendor to be able to provide its customers with seamless protection across the expanding attack surface, and, the power to take on ever increasing performance requirements of the borderless network -- today and into the future."

Fabric Security is Critical to Sustain Business Innovation in the Digital Economy

Today's digital economy connects more users, devices, applications, and data than ever before to drive business value. Billions of new IP-enabled, non-user IoT devices are transmitting vast amounts of data traversing wired and wireless access points, through both public and private networks, and across traditional and cloud infrastructures. To successfully compete in this new digital economy, organizations need to implement a tightly coordinated security strategy that can see and govern this data across an entire borderless network without compromising agility or performance.

Fortinet's Security Fabric Delivers Security Without Compromise

To address the challenges brought on by the digital economy and subsequent evolving enterprise IT infrastructure, Fortinet's Security Fabric brings traditionally autonomous systems together into a single architecture, designed with five critical and interdependent attributes -- scalability, awareness, security, actionable, and open.

In order to detect, let alone stop threats in today's borderless networks, a Security Fabric not only needs to be able to dynamically scale to meet volume and performance...
