1. Tagging Is The First Step Toward Intent-Based Network Security

Fortinet ultimately wants users to be able to apply business logic to their security network, Maddison said, and then automatically have the solution systems configured to obey that logic.

The company introduced tagging in its FortiOS 6.0 release, enabling objects, interfaces, firewalls and devices to be marked using a color-coded system, Maddison said. From there, Maddison said Fortinet would like users to be able to apply a broad policy such as unsecured mobile devices never have access to intellectual property.

Once that business security statement is put in place, Maddison said the system would take over and convert it into different policies for different parts of the, ensuring that unsecured mobile devices can't access intellectual property regardless of the particulars of the device or where the intellectual property is residing. Fortinet isn't there yet, but Maddison said tagging is the start of that process.

"We'll continue to roll out this intent-based network security as we go forward to make security more business-aware and obviously more operationally efficient," Maddison said.
