Our managed network security solutions are based on Fortinet's range of Unified Threat Management firewall platforms. These unified security firewalls are the next generation in network security and remove the need for multiple network security devices.
If you are new to the unified threat management concept then the following information will help to explain why this platform is the fastest growing segment within the managed network security marketplace.
Protecting Networks From Internet Threats
Businesses need to protect their network from the growing number, and wider range of Internet threats. This can involve installing a number of separate security devices at the edge of the local network. Typical devices include:
Typical Multi-device Approach
Many businesses opt to employ numerous devices to gain complete network protection. This approach however has its limitations as multiple devices from different vendors may not communicate with each other. Furthermore deploying a plethora of dedicated devices adds to the complexity of the network infrastructure.
Together these limitations can increase the level of routine maintenance required on the network, thereby reducing the efficiency of the network and increasing operational costs.
Unified Threat Management Approach
Unified Threat management devices fuse together all the necessary security applications into a single platform and provide protection from the more serious blended Internet threats. Fortinet's range of FortiGate firewalls are an excellent example of this approach to network security.
A single unified device alleviates the problems identified above and allows network administrators to benefit from a more secure and reliable network gained through a more simplistic, yet effective network security approach.
