High threat protection performance with automated visibility to stop attacks

Stolen data fuels a highly profitable cyber-crime economy, one where organizations are under constant attack. In response, network engineering and operations leaders are in search of network and security solutions that increase network visibility, enable immediate threat intelligence sharing, and unlock automated threat protection at all network edges. Fortinet FortiGate next generation firewall (NGFW) provides real-time and intelligent protection against malware and emerging threats. As part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiGate NGFWs integrate with other Fabric-Ready partner security solutions to improve network visibility and control while simplifying network infrastructure.

Key NGFW Deployment Requirements 

Network engineering and operations leaders need to improve compatibility and shared intelligence across their security solutions. They also need a high level of reliable network performance and open application programming interfaces (APIs) to coordinate and automate responses. Beyond these broader requirements, NGFW evaluation should focus on the following areas:

Where to start assessing your risk:

Highly effective security

A NGFW solution should leverage global threat research and artificial intelligence (AI) as well as local zero-day threat intelligence to reduce the risk of data breaches. A fully featured NGFW solution goes beyond intrusion prevention, application control, and user identity. It should also support capabilities such as web filtering, IP reputation, SSL/TLS inspection, anti-malware protection, and sandboxing to help break the kill chain of attacks.

Visibility and control over network traffic

Establishing transparent visibility across all parts of the distributed organization is essential to securing increasingly complex and distributed networks. A NGFW should use deep inspection to identify applications, users, devices, and threats and then deliver better protection through context-aware policy controls. It should also inspect both clear-text and encrypted traffic to discover things like hidden malware attachments. An effective NGFW solution should also come with single-pane-of-glass management, advanced visualization components, and rich reporting to inform strategic security decisions. 

Performance and reliability

NGFW capabilities are only useful if the platform’s performance can keep up with normal network operations when all desired NGFW features are enabled. Further, reducing cost and complexity can only be achieved if the NGFW can consolidate traffic from various firewalls or run multiple security services concurrently. To support business continuity and bandwidth requirements, a NGFW platform must deliver highly reliable and resilient firewall capabilities at high-throughput speeds.

Risk mitigation

A truly successful NGFW solution should reduce risks by segmenting network and infrastructure assets in accordance with business intent and continuously evaluating the trust of users and devices. It should provide cost-effective, advanced Layer-7 security for defense in depth.
