Fortinet Security Fabric Enables Digital Innovation

whitePaper | February 5, 2020

Organizations are rapidly adopting digital innovation (DI) initiatives to accelerate their businesses, reduce costs, improve efficiency, and provide better customer experiences. Common initiatives involve moving applications and workflows to the cloud, deploying Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices on the corporate network, and expanding the organization’s footprint to new branch locations. With this evolving infrastructure also come security risks. Organizations must cope with growing attack surfaces, advanced threats, increased infrastructure complexity, and an expanding regulatory landscape. To accomplish their desired DI outcomes while effectively managing risks and minimizing complexities, organizations need to adopt a cybersecurity platform that provides visibility across their environment and a means to manage both security and network operations easily.

Zero Trust Maturity Model

whitePaper | April 28, 2023

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) leads the nation’s effort to understand, manage, and reduce cybersecurity risk, including by supporting Federal Civilian Executive Branch agencies in evolving and operationalizing cybersecurity programs and capabilities. CISA’s Zero Trust Maturity Model (ZTMM) provides an approach to achieve continued modernization efforts related to zero trust within a rapidly evolving environment and technology landscape. This ZTMM is one of many paths that an organization can take in designing and implementing their transition plan to zero trust architectures in accordance with Executive Order (EO) 14028 “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity” § (3)(b)(ii),1 which requires that agencies develop a plan to implement a Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA). While the ZTMM is specifically tailored for federal agencies as required by EO 14028, all organizations should review and consider adoption of the approaches outlined in this document.
