Fortinet | September 05, 2023
Fortinet, the worldwide cybersecurity leader driving the integration of networking and security, has announced new enhancements to its market-leading single-vendor Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) offering. FortiSASE already shields the hybrid workforce using a unified agent and includes SD-WAN integration for the branch. This solidifies FortiSASE's position as the market's most comprehensive offering.
The list of Fortinet extended SASE solutions:
SASE for Microbranches and IoT/OT Devices:
FortiSASE now offers expanded integrations within the Fortinet wireless local-area network (WLAN) suite to aid organizations in securing microbranches and associated devices. FortiAP wireless access points intelligently offload traffic from microbranches to a SASE point of presence (POP) for scalable security inspection of all devices, including IoT and OT devices. This integration also implies that the Fortinet WLAN portfolio can be managed by the same straightforward, cloud-based management console customers already use for FortiSASE.
Enhanced Data Loss Prevention Service:
As a component of its cloud-delivered security services, FortiSASE includes the FortiGuard-powered Data Loss Prevention (DLP) service to safeguard sensitive data across the entire hybrid environment. This service now consists of a broader range of file types, data identifiers, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, along with sophisticated data matching techniques to prevent accidental data breaches. By constant DLP enhancement, Fortinet provides organizations with a detailed understanding of their cloud applications and the tools needed to defend against new threats effectively.
End-to-end Digital Experience Monitoring:
For comprehensive network and SaaS application monitoring, Fortinet's Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM) solution integrates with FortiSASE to offer insights across users, Fortinet global SASE POPs, and the performance of SaaS applications such as WebEx, Office365, and Dropbox. In addition, this integration enable endpoint monitoring to provide end-to-end visibility, empowering IT teams with the data they need to decrease resolution times and ensure a positive user experience.
Leveraging FortiGuard AI-Powered Security Services, Fortinet's SASE provides an extensive set of features, including unified security, streamlined management, and end-to-end Data Edge Management (DEM). This is accomplished by seamlessly integrating cloud-based security components, such as a cloud access security broker, secure web gateway, and Firewall-as-a-Service, in conjunction with networking functionalities through Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN).
In addition, the solution incorporates Universal Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) capabilities to ensure resilient and secure connectivity to and from the internet, privately hosted applications, and Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
