Networks used by educational institutions benefit from being open and promoting a limitless flow of information and ideas. However, much like the student-teacher relationship, the user-network relationship is one that must be built on trust. The extent of personal information and intellectual data that is often housed on these networks requires a reliable cyber security platform. That’s where FortiSIEM enters the discussion. As an all-in-one platform, FortiSIEM provides networks with the opportunity to rapidly find and fix security threats,... [Read More]

The rate of change in some environments is so rapid that many organizations simply can’t keep up. A recent Forrester survey of 342 security leaders found that the largest... [Read More]

Q: You joined Fortinet recently after three decades in cybersecurity roles in government, including most recently the NSA. What has that experience taught you about the nature and scope of the threats that organizations face these days? Some people say that street cops and detectives see an especially negative view of humanity, because, more often than not, they are called to assist with an unlawful or sad situation.  Similarly, coming from the foreign intelligence business, you get a first-hand view of what foreign adversaries aspire to...

Sixteen years ago, Fortinet predicted the emergence of a digital economy where data would be driving business. We understood that this would require scaling the Internet to support hyperconnected network infrastructures. To accomplish this, network infrastructures that hadn’t fundamentally changed for decades would have to be radically redesigned. The challenge was that traditional security solutions were never designed to protect this new environment. To meet this challenge, we began engineering security tools around a universal operating...
