Whitepaper: Are Legacy Routers Putting Your Cloud Transformation At Risk?

by FortinetNov 17, 2021

Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) has quickly become the de facto solution for legacy WAN infrastructure replacement in distributed organizations. But not all SD-WAN approaches are the same. While some implementations simply add basic SD-WAN capabilities to existing legacy routers (featuring a stateful firewall for security), this adds infrastructure complexity while exposing branches to undue security risks. A Secure SD-WAN solution—such as FortiGate Secure SD-WAN—consolidates networking, routing, and security infrastructure in a single, organically developed solution. It provides network engineering and operations leaders with robust branch WAN networking capabilities that support the latest high-performance digital applications while ensuring seamless security across branch deployments.

E-Book: Effective WAN Transformation Depends on Security

by FortinetNov 17, 2021

Traditional wide area networks (WANs) were not designed to support the volume and velocity of traffic that is being pushed to branch offices and distributed locations as a result of greater digitalization and distributed applications. These outdated WAN architectures rely on expensive multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) connectivity and centralized security performed by backhauling traffic through the corporate data center.

This hub-and spoke architecture can lead to bottlenecks at the network edge, which results in sluggish performance for end-users—especially under the ever-increasing bandwidth demands that come with digital transformation. Many organizations are choosing software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions to gain better distributed network performance. But all SD-WAN solutions are not created equally—especially when it comes to security considerations.

E-Book: Endpoint Strategies to Address Ransomware

by FortinetJan 18, 2021

The threat landscape continues to evolve with more sophisticated attacks and evasive techniques. Ransomware is one of the most chilling forms of cyber crime that organizations face today, and it's not going away. A global ransomware survey also showed that 67% of organizations have been a ransomware target — with nearly half saying they had been targeted more than once.

Read the solution brief to learn:

  • How to set up endpoint security ransomware protection
  • Different techniques used to gain access to your systems
  • How to reduce the risk and scope of potential incidents

E-Book: Ensure a Secure LAN Edge for All Devices

by FortinetMay 24, 2022

With 70% of workers still using personal devices for work and IoT proving to be even more challenging, with headless devices that have limited to no security functionality, Network access control (NAC) solutions can ensure only devices that should attach to the network do, and can restrict what they have access to.

Download this eBook to find out how having basic NAC services baked into a local-area network (LAN) edge solution for simplicity and consistent security policy.
