Next-Generation Perimeter Security

Firewalls alone aren’t enough to block today’s blended threats. When single packets are examined by point products with no concern for multi-vector attacks, blended threats often pass undetected. Combining content inspection firewall technology with gateway antivirus and intrusion prevention allows packet flows to be tracked. Fortinet multi-layered security technologies examine entire packet flows, from content inspection through reassembly, stopping threats at the perimeter before corporate resources are compromised.

Secure Messaging

Email is an essential corporate communication tool. Malware has adapted to this trend and email is now a primary vector of transmission of malcode threats. Instant messaging is quickly becoming a primary propagation vector as IM adoption rate increases. As with any new technology, IM introduces security risks in the form of a new generation of malware that could potentially infect corporate resources. By combining Fortinet antispam technology, IM and P2P controls, antivirus scanning, and web filtering, customers can ensure that email and other messaging remains secure and won’t result in lost revenue or lost data.
