Fortinet Security Fabric
In April, Fortinet unveiled the Fortinet Security Fabric, a unified security platform that brings together its network security offerings into a single architecture. That includes security offerings for infrastructure, wired and wireless networks, end-user and IoT devices, access layers, public and hybrid cloud models, software-defined networks and virtualization. The products are backed up with intelligence from the FortiGuard Labs and technical integration with vendor partners. In a statement at the time, CEO Ken Xie said the Security Fabric allows companies to upgrade their security strategies to meet the digitization and technology trends, like IoT and cloud, that are affecting their businesses. Since the launch, some partners have said the Security Fabric messaging has helped them sell more Fortinet offerings to customers.
