Fortinet Expands Its Universal SASE Offering to Securely Connect Any User to Any Application
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
“The Fortinet operating system, FortiOS, is the industry’s only enterprise-grade converged operating system able to support all SASE functions, including firewall, SD-WAN, secure web gateway, encryption/decryption, CASB, DLP, and ZTNA, whether deployed in an appliance or cloud-delivered from Fortinet,” said Ken Xie, Founder, Chairman of the Board, and CEO. “This approach enables over 30 converged networking and security functions to be managed through a single console. 14 of these functions are accelerated when deployed on our new FortiASIC Security Processor 5-based FortiGate 120G SASE appliance.”
Expanding Fortinet Universal SASE
FortiOS runs the full SASE stack, including a bi-directional firewall, SD-WAN, secure web gateway, encryption/decryption, CASB, DLP, and ZTNA. It also has the flexibility to run on an appliance in accelerated mode as well as in the FortiSASE cloud, providing consistent networking, security, and policy management for every edge. This is further enhanced by FortiGuard AI-powered Security Services, such as IPS, DNS filtering, URL filtering, anti-malware, sandboxing, and more.
Today’s news expands Fortinet’s investment in Universal SASE by expanding the reach of its SASE stack in three key areas of the portfolio:
Bringing Accelerated SASE to the Campus and Branch
Flexible Consumption Extended to Universal SASE
FortiFlex, Fortinet’s flexible consumption program, has now been extended to Fortinet Universal SASE solutions. The entire SASE stack from Fortinet can be consumed as part of FortiFlex, whether customers want to use on-prem or FortiSASE cloud-based services. FortiFlex offers usage-based licensing across cloud, hybrid cloud, and on-premises deployments to give IT teams the flexibility to continually right-size their deployments, reduce excessive procurement cycles for new security solutions, simplify the deployment and provisioning of new services, and maximize budget and ROI by enabling IT teams to scale down or pause services as needed.
