Providing holistic, actionable security intelligence across the entire IT infrastructure is critical for the future of cybersecurity. Fortinet’s Matti Blecher offers his perspective here. Can you give us a glimpse into the threat landscape from a threat intelligence point of view? What are customers facing today? One of the biggest security challenges organizations face is being able to see enough of the network to identify today’s most advanced, multi-vector threats. Ideally, you need to be able to see across the distributed network,... [Read More]

Security today relies on total visibility across the distributed network, as well deep insight into threats gathered and correlated from across the globe. But visibility isn’t enough. It needs to be combined with an integrated security architecture, such as the Fortinet Security Fabric, that can actively convert that visibility into actionable intelligence. The Global Security Fabric Over the past few months we have written a lot about Fortinet’s new Security Fabric framework that, for the first time, can correlate intelligence... [Read More]

Business to Business, or B2B networks are pervasive within Financial Services network environments. They are also highly vulnerable to attack.  One reason is that these networks are often woefully unprotected. Some organizations have implemented simple firewall capabilities into these B2B networks, and most have VPNs. But because performance is paramount, security is often seen as a bottleneck; so many of these networks are often only secured using simple router ACLs (RACLs) and NAT. Seriously.With the global transition to digital business impacting... [Read More]

Innovations in wireless and computing technology are driving the growth of connectivity between devices and appliances throughout the home, office, car, store, or practically any place that has a Wi-Fi connection. Known as ubiquitous computing, the reach of interconnected devices is widespread and ever expanding, providing opportunities for ground-breaking new services that improve safety, security, reliability, and convenience. But perhaps unsurprisingly, the growth of ubiquitous computing and network connections also creates new vulnerabilities... [Read More]

Introducing the Fortinet Security Fabric Networks are currently undergoing dramatic change. Organizations are simultaneously wrestling with issues such as BYOD, IoT, virtualization, SDN, cloud, the proliferation of applications, Big Data, and the expectations of the next generation of employees to blend their work and their personal lives on a single device of their choosing, with instant access to any data, at any time, from any location. This has exponentially increased the attack surface that organizations need to be concerned with. For... [Read More]

Securing the Cloud In the emerging digital economy, organizations are connecting users, devices, data, goods, and services to drive business value. Organizations that want to compete successfully in this new economy are having to adopt new architectures, such as virtualization and cloud, to make them more agile, more responsive to customer needs and market demands, and more relevant to their customers. Cloud services provide the sort of on-demand resources digital businesses demand. The device that data resides on is less important than that... [Read More]
