Protect Your Wired and Wireless Access Layers
Organizations are changing the way they deploy access networks, connect devices, and enable business applications to address a number of 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 management, application management, 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, endpoint integrity checking, and controlling application usage. Typical Wi-Fi solutions do not satisfy these requirements. Fortinet has a unique approach that addresses the shortcomings of other Wi-Fi offerings. Our secure access portfolio provides the most flexible security platform with end-to-end enforcement.
Our Cloud-Managed WLAN solution is unlike any other Cloud Wi-Fi offering, ideal for small to medium businesses, distributed enterprises, and branch offices, secure access switches deliver superior security, performance, and manageability. In addition, they help increase productivity for next generation applications through faster network access speeds.
Our Infrastructure offering combines on-premises controller-based management, network applications, and a range of high-performance indoor and outdoor access points. This is the ideal solution when an organization needs a dedicated wireless network that can be separated from the underlying network’s security infrastructure. The Infrastructure solution offers flexible channel deployment options to drastically reduce site survey and channel planning work while securing traffic through wireless traffic segmentation. This solution scales for implementations ranging from medium to large enterprises.
Our Integrated offering is a family of controller-managed access points that function in cooperation with a FortiGate next generation firewall. In addition to consolidating all the functions of a network firewall, IPS, anti-malware, VPN, WAN optimization, web filtering, and application control in a single platform, FortiGate also has an integrated Wi-Fi controller. Fortinet access points are either integrated into the FortiGate (FortiWiFi) or are connected directly to the FortiGate to provide comprehensive wireless coverage.
Our Cloud-Managed WLAN solution is unlike any other Cloud Wi-Fi offering. Based on the FortiCloud Provisioning and Management Service and a new class of access points, the FortiAP-S series combines the elements of advanced firewall protection at the network edge with the simplicity and convenience of cloud management.
