Web Filtering
Intrusion Prevention
Fortinet firewall technology delivers complete content and network
protection by combining stateful inspection with a comprehensive
suite of powerful security features. Application control, antivirus,
IPS, Web filtering and VPN, along with advanced features such as
an extreme threat database, vulnerability management, flow-based
inspection and active profiling work in concert to identify and
mitigate the latest complex security threats. The security-hardened
FortiOS operating system works together with purpose-built
FortiASIC processors to accelerate inspection throughput and
identification of malware.
IPS technology protects against current and emerging networklevel threats. In addition to signature-based threat detection,
IPS performs anomaly-based detection which alerts users to
any traffic that matches attack behavior profiles. The Fortinet
threat research team analyzes suspicious behavior, identifies
and classifies emerging threats, and generate new signatures
to include with FortiGuard Service updates.

Antivirus / Antispyware
Antivirus content inspection technology protects against viruses,
spyware, worms, and other forms of malware which can infect
network infrastructure and endpoint devices. By intercepting
and inspecting application-based traffic and content, antivirus
protection ensures that malicious threats hidden within legitimate
application content are identified and removed from data streams
before they can cause damage. FortiGuard subscription services
ensure that FortiGate devices are updated with the latest malware
signatures for high levels of detection and mitigation.
Fortinet VPN technology provides secure communications
between multiple networks and hosts, using SSL and IPsec
VPN technologies. Both services leverage our custom FortiASIC
processors to provide acceleration in the encryption and
decryption steps. The FortiGate VPN service enforces complete
content inspection and multi-threat protections including antivirus,
intrusion prevention and Web filtering. Traffic optimization provides
prioritization for critical communications traversing VPN tunnels.

WAN Optimization
SSL-Encrypted Traffic Inspection
Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization accelerates applications
over geographically dispersed networks, while ensuring multi-threat
inspection of all network traffic. WAN optimization eliminates
unnecessary and malicious traffic, optimizes legitimate traffic,
and reduces the amount of bandwidth required to transmit data
between applications and servers. Improved application
performance and delivery of network services reduces bandwidth
and infrastructure requirements, along with associated
SSL-encrypted traffic inspection protects endpoint clients and
Web and application servers from hidden threats. SSL Inspection
intercepts encrypted traffic and inspects it for threats prior to
routing it to its final destination. It can be applied to client-oriented
SSL traffic, such as users connecting to cloud-based CRM site,
and to inbound Web and application server traffic. SSL inspection
enables you to enforce appropriate use policies on encrypted Web
content and to protect servers from threats which may be hidden
inside encrypted traffic flows.

FortiClient Endpoint Security installation, firewall operation and
up-to-date antivirus signatures before allowing network access.
Non-compliant endpoints, such as endpoints running applications
that violate security policies can be quarantined or sent to
DLP uses a sophisticated pattern-matching engine to identify
and prevent the transfer of sensitive information outside of
your network perimeter, even when applications encrypt their
communications. In addition to protecting your organization’s
critical data, Fortinet DLP provides audit trails to aid in policy
compliance. You can select from a wide range of configurable
actions to log, block, and archive data, and quarantine or ban users.

Web Filtering
Logging, Reporting & Monitoring
Web filtering protects endpoints, networks and sensitive
information against Web-based threats by preventing users from
accessing known phishing sites and sources of malware. In
addition, administrators can enforce policies based on Website
categories to easily prevent users from accessing inappropriate
content and clogging networks with unwanted traffic.
FortiGate consolidated security appliances provide extensive
logging capabilities for traffic, system, and network protection
functions. They also allow you to assemble drill-down and
graphical reports from detailed log information. Reports can
provide historical and current analysis of network activity to aid
with identification of security issues and to prevent network
misuse and abuse.

High Availability
Application Control
High Availability (HA) configurations enhance reliability and
increase performance by clustering multiple FortiGate appliances
into a single entity. FortiGate High Availability supports ActiveActive and Active-Passive options to provide maximum flexibility
for utilizing each member within the HA cluster. The HA feature is
included as part of the FortiOS operation system and is available
with most FortiGate appliances.
Application control enables you to define and enforce policies for
thousands of applications running across networks regardless
of port or the protocol used for communication. The explosion
of new Internet-based and Web 2.0 applications bombarding
networks today make application control essential, as most
application traffic looks like normal Web traffic to traditional
firewalls. Fortinet application control provides granular control of
applications along with traffic shaping capabilities and flow-based
inspection options.

Virtual Domains
Setup / Configuration Options
Virtual Domains (VDOMs) enable a single FortiGate system to
function as multiple independent virtual FortiGate systems. Each
VDOM contains its own virtual interfaces, security profiles, routing
table, administration, and many other features. FortiGate VDOMs
reduce the complexity of securing disparate networks by
virtualizing security resources on the FortiGate platform, greatly
reducing the power and footprint required as compared to
multiple point products. Ideal for large enterprise and managed
service providers.
Fortinet provides administrators with a variety of methods and
wizards for configuring FortiGate appliances during deployment.
From the easy-to-use Web-based interface to the advanced
capabilities of the command-line interface, FortiGate systems
offer the flexibility and simplicity you need.
