-- Aimed at further connecting and integratingFortinet's (http://www.fortinet.com/)
security and wireless platforms for retail, branch offices and distributed enterprises, Fortinet has unveiled six new products. As part of Fortinet's broad Connect and Secure solution, Fortinet's new FortiGate Unified Threat Management (UTM), FortiWiFi and FortiPresence analytics products combine unparalleled threat protection, analytics, wireless connectivity and centralized management capabilities. This allows distributed organizations to better adhere to compliance regulations and analyze customer behaviour to compete more effectively in the marketplace.
"The launch of Fortinet's new UTM appliances accelerates the company’s long-term vision for a secure and connected environment for retailers, and other distributed enterprises,"
said Rajesh Maurya, Country Manager, India & SAARC, Fortinet. "With increased integration between Fortinet's UTM features, wireless access points and analytics software, distributed enterprises with limited resources can streamline complex network management tasks, improve security, and better understand customer behaviour, enabling greater profitability for their businesses."
Retail organizations, with up to thousands of branch locations and fewer than 100 users per location, face a myriad of security and networking challenges. Even the smallest of these distributed enterprises struggle to manage a slew of disparate, legacy network security and access appliances, resulting in an array of efficiency issues that bottleneck network functionality. This medley of devices often lack many of the advanced security features found in a more comprehensive solution, leaving distributed organizations susceptible to APTs, Wi-Fi attacks and other threats.
Retailers and other distributed enterprises are looking for a single solution that provides all of the functionality needed to keep their businesses secure, connected and compliant with regulatory mandates such as PCI DSS. Fortinet’s new appliances, which includes the FortiGate-60D-
3G4G-VZW, FortiGate-70D, FortiGate-80D, and FortiGate-94D-
POE, fulfil these needs by integrating advanced security features with Wi-Fi access point control, endpoint management, and policy control into a single, easy-to-manage appliance.
