Fortinet advances Security Fabric for 3rd Gen Cybersecurity

The Fortinet Security Fabric delivers the most comprehensive suite of security offerings in the industry—available in a variety of form factors and running natively across the widest range of platforms.

Fortinet has integratedand robotized cybersecurity solutions, has declared the arrival of the most recent version of its flagship operating system, FortiOS 6.2, at its worldwide client and partner conference—Accelerate 19. This FortiOS 6.2 discharge proceeds with the development of the Fortinet Security Fabric with more than 300 new advancements that range Fortinet’s solutions portfolio, empowering partners to accomplish a security-driven system required for the edge and multi-cloud environments made by digital transformation.

Broad visibility of the entire digital attack surface:

Fortinet is broadening visibility and simplifying deploymentand management across the expanded Fortinet Security Fabric with deeper integrations between Fortinet solutions and over 70+ Alliance Partners.The FortiGate NGFW, best-of-breed FortiGate Secure SD-WAN solution and large portfolio of cloud-native platforms have all been enhanced with new functionality, including intent-based segmentation. Customers can maximize the new breadth of comprehensive visibility delivered in FortiOS 6.2 through Fortinet’s 360 Protection services bundles that include a wide array of professional services.

Integrated protection and detection of advanced threats:

Fortinet continues to lead product innovation through the active support of the latest industry standards, including integrated support of TLS 1.3 to secure internet traffic, new deception-based technologies to address intrusions and trust-based segmentation that operates seamlessly across the extended Fortinet Security Fabric, from core to edge and to cloud. Fortinet’sFortiDeceptor technology provides best-in-class defense and protection security tripwires, triggering automated responses against malware and unauthorized users looking to access and exploit networked resources.

Automated operations, orchestration and response:

The Fortinet Security Fabric’s deep integration and advanced automation capabilities help customers reduce overhead by providing single-pane-of-glass visibility and management across all solutions integrated into the Fortinet Security Fabric. Applying automation and machine learning functions toreduce complexity, expand span of control and automate critical functions enable threat response at digital speeds. And continuous, AI-based threat intelligence feeds from FortiGuard Labs increase the speed and accuracy of threat detection and automated response.


Ken Xie, founder, chairman of the board, and CEO at Fortinet said, “The ongoing digital transformation means the edge—not just the cloud—is increasingly important for business. The biggest challenge will be securing the exponential growth of the digital attack surface due to the rapid expansion of edge devices. Because business success is measured in microseconds, organizations cannot afford to trade performance for protection. Instead, security needs to occur at the speed of business everywhere, even at the edge. To achieve this, organizations must adopt a fabric-based approach to security that goes beyond isolated security devices and platforms to cover the whole network at the same time, even when it changes. This requires protection that is broad, integrated and automated.”

The Fortinet Security Fabricdelivers the most comprehensive suite of security offerings in the industry—available in a variety of form factors and running natively across the widest range of platforms. The enhancements of FortiOS 6.2 further expand the industry-leading capabilities of the Fortinet Security Fabric with enhanced end-to-end protection from advanced threats, while significantly reducing the complexity inherent in designing, deploying, managing and updating most security architectures.

“We chose to protect our network with the Fortinet Security Fabric, which includes the deployment of the FortiGate NGFW, FortiMail, FortiSIEM, FortiWeb, FortiClient, FortiSandbox, FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer, among others. As a result, The Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA) has gained deep visibility into each network segment and device regardless if it is on-premises or in the cloud. We’ve seen our operations become more efficient and easier to manage given our security architecture is deployed from a single console. We’re excited to see the additions that the expanded Fortinet Security Fabric will include through FortiOS 6.2 to continue providing end-to-end advanced threat protection across the entire attack surface”, stated Jesús Garrido Antonio, CIO-Director Department of Information Technology and Communications at INTA (National Institute of Aerospace Technology)
