FortiGate: Next generation firewall (NGFW)
Companies are thinking about how to optimise the security of their businesses, using intrusion prevention, web filtering, anti-malware and application control functions. However, they are experiencing the complexity of having stand-alone, non-integrated tools and a lack of visibility across all of these products. Gartner estimates that by 2019, 80% of enterprise traffic will be encrypted and that 50% of attacks targeting enterprises will be hidden in encrypted traffic to better infiltrate the network or exfiltrate data. More than ever, it is becoming imperative to inspect HTTPS traffic.
The FortiGate next-generation firewall leverages custom security processors and monitoring services from FortiGuard Labs to provide industry-leading protection, optimal performance and inspection of encrypted and unencrypted traffic. FortiGate helps control cost and complexity with full visibility into applications, users and networks, and a tightly integrated security approach. As part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiGate communicates with all other Fortinet solutions, as well as with third-party solutions in a heterogeneous environment, to share intelligence and enhance security.
