Fortinet FortiOS 7.0
Fortinet’s FortiOS 7.0 was unveiled in February and tackles some of the biggest security issues around working from home and securing the SASE edge. FortiOS 7.0 enables FortiGate customers to employ Zero Trust Network Access capabilities out of the box, reducing the attack surface by verifying the user and device for every application session while hiding business-critical applications from the internet.
The platform extends network connectivity and security beyond the WAN edge with innovations in 5G and LTE that improve wireless network performance and increase resiliency. FortiOS 7.0 also includes self-healing capabilities through adaptive WAN remediations to make the application experience more resilient, as well as passive application monitoring for SaaS and multi-cloud applications.
With the introduction of FortiOS 7.0, Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Fortinet’s adaptive cloud security offerings now provide central management for hybrid clouds with auto-scaling for practical usage of resources, dynamic load-balancing, and application user experience visibility. Other updates simplify SaaS management and strengthen Fortinet’s ability to reduce complex operations into a single management experience.
