Fortinet Product Overview
Fortinet is a leading provider of Unified Threat Management (UTM) network security solutions for enterprise and service provider environments. Fortinet's FortiGate product line and FortiGuard security subscription services, which together provide an array of integrated network security functions including anti-virus, firewall, virtual private networking, intrusion prevention (IPS), web filtering, anti-spam and traffic optimization. Fortinet's appliances, from the FortiGate-50 series for small businesses and branch offices to the FortiGate-5000 series for large enterprises and services providers, are based on a proprietary technology platform, which includes FortiASIC, a proprietary ASIC specifically designed for accelerated processing of certain security functions, and FortiOS, a proprietary operating system that provides the foundation for all security functions. Fortinet's FortiGate appliances also incorporate high availability and automatic failover features, and several higher end appliances have system virtualization capabilities that enable managed service providers to deliver managed security to multiple end-customers for one appliance.
Fortinet Unified Threat Management
In order to solve the security problems for businesses and service providers, the Unified Threat Management (UTM) market has emerged. UTM devices incorporate firewall, intrusion prevention and gateway antivirus, at a minimum. Many vendors have attempted to provide UTM capabilities through various implementations on the theme of UTM. Some vendors have re-packaged existing firewall and VPN offerings with antivirus and intrusion detection and/or prevention technologies from other vendors. Others have simply relabeled their existing network security products, which offer limited threat management capabilities across all three technology areas. More importantly, the act of simply cobbling together a UTM product that can provide essential security services while maintaining performance ratings that meet the needs of business networks is insufficient and simply does not work. In order to address these challenges, an effective UTM solution must deliver a network security platform comprised of robust and fully integrated security and networking functions. Protection must be provided against next generation application layer threats and offer centralized management from a single console, all without impairing the performance of the network.
