A distributed enterprise is any organization that has separate physical locations for numerous business functions. This can include remote employees, branch office locations, and/or corporate data centers. Each of these components has distinct security and access requirements that transcend any single security product. Securing the distributed enterprise requires an ecosystem of security products that integrate and operate together in order to secure all the components of the distributed enterprise.
Fortinet’s breadth of security products, from our FortiGate appliances to our FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer tools provide an integrated set of tools that can secure all aspects of the distributed enterprise. Fortinet can address all the components of a secure distributed enterprise architecture and can provide security at the management, aggregation, branch office, and access layers of any distributed enterprise.
Given the widely distributed nature of modern organizations establishments, the ability to quickly modify and manage security appliances is essential. Fortinet provides FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer products to help organizations manage their distributed environments.
The aggregation level is the destination for all data. Typically this is the headquarters location. Core security functions such as firewalling, application control and VPN termination take place at this level. Fortinet’s Next Generation Firewall appliances have the power and intelligence required of this demanding environment.
The individual branch office level requires security and connectivity for a wide variety of functions including WiFi, voice, and traditional network connectivity. Adding these additional functions requires more advanced security controls including antimalware, application control, and traffic management. Fortinet products including FortiGate, FortiWifi, FortiSwitch, FortiVoice and FortiAP wireless access points provide all the components needed for branch offices to operate in a secure manner while still offering an enhanced IT experience.
As enterprises extend access to employees and partners using tablets and other mobile devices, ensuring secure access is critical. Fortinet has several products that can ensure secure access control through rogue AP detection, authentication, guest WiFI, web filtering, rate limiting and load balancing.
