Fortinet’s high-performance network security platform has solutions for the core (internal segmentation), the edge (nextGENERATION firewall), and access (secure access). The network operating system is flexible enough for deployments of all sizes and environments, from carriers to small businesses.

Enterprise Firewall Solution to Protect Your Entire Network

Today, the enterprise perimeter has been stretched so far that it’s no longer recognizable. In addition to network size and footprint, larger enterprises must consider users and deployment needs. From the mobile workforce to the data center, public and private clouds, and the Internet of Things (IoT)—the attack surface has increased dramatically, making the extended enterprise more difficult to define and secure. Threat actors—motivated by easy money—are targeting the weakest points in enterprise networks with automated attack processes designed to gain access to sensitive information for ransom or sale on the black market.

New Class of Firewall – Internal Segmentation Firewall (ISFW)

Most firewall development over the past decade has been focused on the border, the Internet edge, perimeter (hostfirewall), endpoint, data center (DMZ) or the cloud. This started with the stateful firewall but has evolved to include Unified Threat Management (UTM) for distributed networks, which brought together the firewall, intrusion detection and antivirus. Later came the Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), which included intrusion prevention, and application control for the Internet edge. More recently because of the huge increase in speeds, Data Center Firewalls (DCFW) have arrived to provide more than 100Gbps of throughput. All of these firewalls have in common an approach designed to protect from the “outside-in.”
