Fortinet Security Fabric


Organizations are rapidly adopting digital innovation (DI) initiatives to accelerate business, 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 comes 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 broad visibility across their environment and a means to easily manage both
security and network operations.

The Fortinet Security Fabric solves these challenges with broad, integrated, and automated solutions that enable:

> Security-driven Networking that secures and accelerates the network and user experience.
> Zero-trust Network Access that identifies and secures users and devices both on and off network.
> Dynamic Cloud Security that secures and controls cloud infrastructure and applications.
> Artificial intelligence (AI)-driven Security Operations that automatically prevents, detects, and responds to cyber threats.

Additionally, the Security Fabric can be readily extended across organizations that run diverse solutions through the Security Fabric ecosystem of seamless third-party integrations. The Security Fabric ecosystem helps minimize gaps in enterprise security architectures while maximizing security return on investment (ROI), and all under a single management console.
