Blended Security Threats Within Small Businesses and Enterprises:
Cyber crime and network attacks pose serious threats to small businesses. Intellectual property, revenue, customer and company records, and other mission critical resources are at risk. As larger companies work to increasingly lock down their networks, more and more security threats are being targeted at smaller companies. Small office/home offices (SOHO) often lack the infrastructure to meet the technical sophistication of today’s complex blended-attack methods and remote offices/branch offices (ROBO) often lack the on-site expertise to tackle such complex security issues. Point-based security appliances are inadequately equipped to protect against these types of attacks because of the multitude of attack vectors used. The Fortinet FortiGate series of SOHO and ROBO security appliances tightly integrate multi-threat protection onto a purpose-built platform to effectively block application- and network-borne attacks.
Cost-Effective Security Platform:
The Fortinet FortiGate series of security appliances deliver high performance, multi-threat protection at a compelling cost that is ideal for securing smaller locations. Complete Unified Threat Management (UTM) features including firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, Web filtering, antispam, antivirus, antispyware, traffic shaping and IM/P2P controls prevent blended attacks or unauthorized use from interrupting business. All FortiGate devices support High Availability (HA) configurations to ensure maximum uptime. FortiGate appliances operate in either transparent or routing modes and are available with integrated multi-port switches and modems, integrated WiFi access points and PC Card slots for 3G/UMTS modems, all of which enable FortiGate devices to adapt to any network environment. Moreover, with Fortinet FortiGuard Security Subscription Services, the FortiGate-50 thru -100 Series become an affordable and easy-to-manage security solution for an enterprise’s remote/branch offices, a service provider’s customer premise equipment (CPE) or as an all-in-one solution for small-to-medium businesses.
