6. Security Fabric Continues To Expand
As recently as a few releases ago, Maddison said only a couple of Fortinet's products were part of the company's Security Fabric offering suite. But as the products become more mature, Maddison said Fortinet wants to ensure they're integrated into the Security Fabric so that customers and partners have more visibility across the entire attack surface.
FortiOS 6.2 increases the number of Fortinet products that are part of the Security Fabric from 12 to 18, Maddison said, adding tools like FortiCASB-cloud that have become increasingly important to customers. Other products that are now part of the Fabric include: FortiADC for application delivery control; FortiToken for user and device authentication; and the company's VDOM virtual domain.
Maddison would eventually like to see all of Fortinet's products be part of the Security Fabric.
