New updates to FortiSASE expand the industry’s most integrated single-vendor SASE solution to further converge networking and security across a unified operating system.
Multinational cybersecurity company Fortinet has announced several enhancements to its single-vendor solution FortiSASE, enabling additional deployment flexibility and new secure access capabilities for digital resources across private applications, software as a service (SaaS), and the internet.
More than half of the respondents to a recent Fortinet work-from-anywhere survey support hybrid workforces, meaning most CEOs are tasked with the challenge of securing users as they contribute from home, the office or elsewhere.
Comprehensive security for all users is near impossible when using solutions that are in the cloud or not integrated on-premises. The larger and more distributed the network, the more pervasive these issues can be. Providing consistent security to a global hybrid workforce working from multiple locations requires a single-vendor approach.
John Maddison, executive vice president of Products and CMO at Fortinet said, “In today's work-from-anywhere world where users are on and off the network accessing distributed applications, Fortinet empowers organisations to consistently apply enterprise-grade security across all facets of their business.”
"New updates to FortiSASE enhance our ability to extend FortiGuard Security Services across the SD-WAN and cloud edge. Our commitment to the continual improvement of what is already one of the leading single-vendor secure access service edge (SASE) solutions on the market is why we’re seeing huge customer adoption and trust in Fortinet," he added.
Furthering Fortinet’s commitment to delivering a comprehensive SASE solution that extends the convergence of networking and security from the edge to remote users, Fortinet is announcing enhancements to FortiSASE, including FortiGate secure edge integration and access.
Notably, with the existing FortiGate Secure Edge integration, Fortinet Secure SD-WAN customers benefit from the flexibility to perform security on-premises (via FortiGate) or in the cloud (via FortiSASE). New improvements to this give teams even more granular control and flexibility to choose when to perform security on-premises or in the cloud to optimise the user experience. This development will particularly benefit organisations with a hybrid workforce and better ensure consistent security, no matter where users are located.
Regarding secure access, they have upgraded all three key FortiSASE use cases when users access the internet, privately hosted applications, and SaaS applications.
FortiSASE enables enterprise-grade security everywhere and is designed to provide consistent security for users from anywhere. It converges cloud-delivered security, including secure web gateway, universal zero-trust network access, next-generation dual-mode CASB, Firewall-as-a-Service, and networking.
Powered by the FortiOS single operating system, FortiGuard AI-powered security services, and a unified FortiClient agent, FortiSASE helps improve efficiency and delivers consistent security.
