Talkin’ About Our Generation

Network security companies have in recent years grappled with the disappearance of the traditional perimeter and the need to deliver protection across the entire infrastructure, according to John Maddison, Fortinet’s CMO and executive vice president of products. As a result, Maddison said vendors must be able to deliver high-performance security and networking from a single system.

Companies must also automate workflows across their entire infrastructure to ensure that a threat in a customer’s factory doesn’t result in access to its data center, Maddison said. A platform approach like the one adopted by Fortinet provides customers with a holistic view across their infrastructure as well as the ability to respond to issues found anywhere in the infrastructure in an automated manner, he said.

Fortinet planned to debut the first-ever firewall powered by its seventh-generation network processor as well as more than 350 new features on its FortiOS 6.4 operating system at Accelerate 20 in Barcelona this week. But the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based platform security vendor ended up canceling the event due to health and safety concerns associated with the coronavirus, and debuted the capabilities separately.
