The Fortinet Security Fabric spans the entire distributed network, from IoT to the cloud, to provide an integrated and collaborative approach to securing the next generation of networks and threats. It weaves together a variety of security components, from clients and firewalls to content security and access control, in a range of form factors, in order to share threat intelligence and coordinate threat response.
Securing the cloud is a critical and complicated challenge. It requires the blending of physical, virtual, and software-based solutions that can track and enforce policy on traffic that moves between corporate and third party domains. In the software defined security framework, the key pillars are designed to support one another – starting with broad set of virtualized instances and pre-configured cloud templates, platform integrated orchestration and automation, flexibility for metering and on-demand licensing, single pane of management for all instances across premises, and a deep set of product APIs (REST and JSON) for next level cloud-based integration.
