Secure Unified Access Challenges
Organizations are changing the way they deploy access networks, connected devices, and business applications to address a number of management challenges:
- The number and types of network-connected wireless devices and mobile applications continue to grow exponentially, presenting new vulnerabilities and increasing the attack surface.
- Users want fast Wi-Fi and a smooth experience across wired and wireless networks.
- IT needs reduced complexity of network, application, and device management.
Securing business communications, personal information, financial transactions, and mobile devices involves much more than network access control. It requires scanning for malware, preventing access to malicious websites, checking endpoint integrity, and controlling application usage.
Typical Wi-Fi and switching solutions can’t properly address these network, application, and device management requirements. Only Fortinet’s Secure Unified Access solution provides comprehensive security on the LAN infrastructure, delivering the most flexible security platform with end-to-end enforcement.
The tight integration between FortiGate appliances at the core of the network, FortiSwitch devices, and FortiAP Wireless Access Points enables a common security policy across the network, extending the protection of the firewall out to the edge.
With one operating system across the entire network, you get better visibility and awareness with simplified management. Additionally, Fortinet delivers three deployment options to meet the varied WLAN requirements of today’s enterprises.
