What Is the Fortinet Security Fabric?
As companies grow to meet new market demands, the need to effectively scale to handle the challenges of a larger market, network, and workforce is imperative. Without extensive foresight, many organizations tend to glue point products sourced from multiple vendors into a single architecture. The final result is a network infrastructure that is inefficient, contains multiple security weaknesses, and reduces productivity through unoptimized solutions that aren’t designed to function as a cohesive whole.
When your digital transformation adopts the Fortinet Security Fabric, your company makes the choice to devote its infrastructure to leverage Fortinet products to sustain network connections, security, traffic, and more. Unlike cobbled together solutions, Fortinet products are designed to seamlessly integrate and cooperate with other Fortinet devices, resulting in a single comprehensive network with optimized functionality and cooperation.
Simply put: Fortinet products are designed to work together. Since they work together, the final infrastructure is more secure, offers more connectivity, faster speeds, and greater ability to respond to challenges than other options. A single, consolidated infrastructure entity is easier to manage and control than a piecemeal solution.
