SMB - Solutions

 

Small Medium Business

As small or medium business cannot afford to deploy all the different standalone security solutions an Enterprise would deploy. Not only is there a large capital outlay but the operational costs and staff required would divert valuable resources away from growing the business. Hence there is a balance between cost and complex features which are sometimes never used. Network Security is the foundation of any security strategy but this also needs complimenting by Endpoint, Application, Access and Security Management.

Fortinet pioneered the concept of Unified Threat Management (UTM) – consolidating multiple Network Security functions into a single device. This includes but is not limited to Firewall, VPN, NGFW (IPS, Application Control), Web Filtering, , Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) - Anti-Malware, WAN Acceleration – All under a single Policy manager.

Many UTM vendors obtain their Security feeds from third parties sometimes at a very low cost. This leads to poor protection quality, a non unified policy and most concerning a fragmented support and response process. Fortinet is different and only deploys home Grown Security Intelligence from its FortiGuard threat research organization.

FortiGate have extended the original concept of the UTM to add important Security Functions such as:
  • Wireless Access (Some model have integrated Wireless capability)
  • End Point Security
  • Authentication Controls
  • Access Switch Control

These can all be easily added via the configuration menu without further costs and allow customers to deploy a single UTM and cover just about all their security needs for perimeter, Access and Client (including mobile) Security.
