9. Breadth, Integration And Automation Take Center Stage
Fortinet has put all of its security products and services into one integrated, peer-to-peer mesh fabric that covers that entire attack surface from endpoint, email and phishing to web, WiFi and cloud, Maddison said. The company has additionally built out a rich ecosystem of API partners to help protect the digital attack surface.
The integration has made advanced threat protection systems like sandboxing instantly accessible across the entire security fabric, according to Maddison. As a result, Maddison said businesses that find something in their email or endpoint that isn't being detected by protected signatures can instantly call upon these sandboxing capabilities.
But the most important thing for customers going forward, Maddison said, will be the ability to automate workflows, security audits and vulnerability scans into the Security Operations Center (SOC) across the entire fabric.
